The Importance of Electronic Medical Record Systems

Advanced analytics tools are being increasingly used within healthcare organizations to extract insights from data in order to provide an improved patient experience and reduce costs. Their widespread use has however highlighted the importance of effectively managing clinical records and individual health data.

SaaS companies active in this field are undertaking strategic actions to address the issue. Over the past two weeks Johns Hopkins Medicine cooperated with Nuance Communication in employing Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) solutions to present physicians with real-time advice for diagnoses; while 3M invested US$1 billion to acquire M*Modal’s cloud AI technology. Both moves are focused on improving documentation accuracy and boosting operational efficiency. It is likely that in the future, secure electronic health record systems will create more refined and streamlined healthcare system that can offer better services to the public.

AI based RPA on your order

The rising issue of industrial labor shortages results from over competition in the global market. Although the “low profit and mass production” operation model increases industrial enterprises’ demand for vast amounts of cheap labor. However, hiring such laborers is not a long-term solution for enterprises. This has contributed to increased adaptation of industrial robotic process automation (RPA) and AI solutions. Recently, Kofax RPA and NICE launched their upgraded RPA solutions with AI features; and Automation Anywhere appointed Milan Sheth as their RPA and AI business development senior vice president. These and many other companies are addressing industrial labor shortages with robotic solutions, part of a strong trend toward AI and RPA.
