The healthcare industry is one of the largest industries in the world. The industry has its own share of challenges and problems. The demand for better quality health care and customization is ever increasing. Quick, efficient services have become the norm.
Healthcare systems need to be proactive in improving their systems to cater to these customer needs. Various departments operate independently, in silos, making it difficult to manage. Alongside, the industry is also burdened with increasing regulatory policies imposed upon them. Maintaining compliance is very expensive but cannot be ignored as the reputation of the organization would be affected.
With the advent of technology, it became imperative for organizations to store patient data to enhance the quality of service provided. But this can also lead to data security issues and involves a huge risk of breach of privacy.
As the organization size increases maintaining and auditing enormous amounts of data also becomes complex and time-consuming. Apart from this, the industry is also prone to various external and internal risks which have to be identified and mitigated on time. Failure to do so can hamper an organization’s position in the industry. Healthcare organizations spend a large portion of their annual budget and other resources on managing these aforementioned issues.
