Stop paying expensive EMR, technology to connect health systems

Healthcare organizations should stop spending big bucks on expensive digital technologies to tie their systems together.

During the main session, “Paradigm Shift in Digital Health”, Frank Hester, Founder and CEO of TPP UK, shared that cost is a big consideration for him when purchasing EMR and other digital health technologies.

Let’s say the cost of uniting health systems in Indonesia is worth $1 billion, he said. “You should be able to install an EMR solution throughout Indonesia for much less than $100 million.”

“I’m fine if they want to pay more… but I say it’s time to stop,” he urged the audience.

“In every other industry, technology has lowered the cost of the product. You get more value for money and you see it everywhere, seemingly miraculously, besides healthcare technology,” he said, saying it’s supposed to be more cheap. , faster and better today.

Hester also advised organizations to look at data access and interoperability from vendor solutions. “Do we have mobile applications and solutions? Do doctors and nurses like using the system? Does it empower them? Does it make it faster?”

He also said to consider how quickly your provider responds; Are they allowed to do the installation or wait for them to do it? “It’s crazy if you have to wait for your provider to do something. It’s even more crazy if they manage to charge you for it,” she stressed.

However, Hester still thinks “it’s a wonderful time to be in health tech.”

He looked at how today’s healthcare technologies are helping doctors save time and make fewer clinical errors.

In particular, AI has been assisting doctors in decision-making and diagnosis and expanding access to health care services, especially in areas where there is a shortage of health care personnel.

“I think the business opportunities [in healthcare technology] They are fantastic, but the change we can make in humanity, in our lives, is even more fantastic.”
