Managing Digital Transformation in Healthcare

The demand for greater productivity and delivering customer-centric care is driving digital transformation in healthcare. However, according to research by McKinsey & Company, the healthcare industry still falls far behind in their digitization efforts.

Why Healthcare Needs Digital Transformation?

Adapting to rising customer expectations and effectively competing in the marketplace, requires healthcare companies to integrate modern technologies into their business models and IT architectures. Not only is it possible to boost innovation, but they can deliver customer-centric healthcare and track value-based performance. Perhaps most importantly, digital transformation is already happening as IT teams are tasked with supporting an increasingly mobile care delivery ecosystem.

Challenges of Digital Transformation

Healthcare is increasingly data-driven with information coming from multiple sources. Organizations face unprecedented risk and challenges with data management and governance. It’s important that healthcare organizations modernize their IT foundations by moving to digital platforms that simplify data management, ensure information interoperability, and secure patient data.

Successful Digital Transformation Strategies

As you look at your digital transformation initiatives, ensure you have the right endpoint devices, device management technologies and data backup systems:

Deploying the right endpoint devices for productivity: equip employees with devices that deliver ultra-mobile performance and long battery life, or ISV-certified workstations for specific jobs like PACS and related medical imaging.

Low failure rate: Day in and day out, year after year, Lenovo solutions are durable and are designed to bootup and perform. With enhanced cooling technology, robust testing processes and thousands of healthcare customers worldwide, you can count on device uptime.

Easy to manage and control security: Windows 10 Pro provides an essential foundation, with built-in security and easy-to-implement management, plus enhanced productivity. Windows 10 Pro allows users to sign in with their face or their fingerprint, using Windows Hello. BitLocker protects against loss of sensitive data even when devices are lost or stolen. With Intel® AMT activated on some Lenovo devices, you can remotely delete encryption keys for fast data sanitation using Intel® Remote Secure Erase (Intel® RSE).

Online data backup: Protect your confidential patient data securely in the cloud. Ransomware attacks highlight the challenges that organizations face with applying security safeguards on a large scale. Lenovo Online Data Backup allows healthcare providers to securely store sensitive data in the cloud with a simple data automatic back-up process, ensuring maximum security of patient records. For a low fixed-cost, fixed-term investment, you’ll have the peace of mind to know you’re protected.

Managing Digital Transformation in Healthcare

The PC is at the center of this digital transformation. If you look at what knowledge workers interact with on a daily basis, the number one tool they use—it’s the PC.
