Whether or not it comes as a surprise, telehealth is fertile ground for some of the most ambitious digital transformations in healthcare yet. Integration engines such as Iguana can enable healthcare organisations to quickly connect systems and provide the right data to support the complex workflows critical to facilitating telehealth workflows that ultimately provides increased access to medical care and reduces the burden on inpatient facility resources.
Scaling virtual care
As a result of COVID-19 testing and patient tracking initiatives, more workflows have been developed in order to properly handle the caseload. As a result, EMR’s have had to take on new functionalities that allow them to scale their telehealth implementations. The key to scaling effectively is the ability to add clinicians and services without disrupting continuity of care workflows. Iguana’s robust out-of-the-box libraries, coupled with its intuitive scripting environment, allow you to bring your interfaces to market quickly and securely, resulting in the highly scalable, stable system architectures required to ensure optimal performance and uptime during exponential growth of data volumes.
Connecting systems that can monitor data transactions and automate workflows allows organizations to improve in all areas of data access. Care coordination that sets up appointments, fills out forms, and separates the billing process frees up doctors to focus on patient care without having to deal with extraneous and cumbersome administrative tasks. By leveraging Iguana’s data-driven development environment, built-in interface templates and user notifications, you can easily connect and onboard new systems in a fraction of the time, automating these administrative tasks across clinical, financial, and operational workflows.
Additionally, the ability to share patient records between health providers and hospitals during a telehealth encounter can save time and add to the quality of care for patients. Providing a seamless workflow that integrates within the current system of care is an important aspect of unlocking the full potential of virtual care through interoperability.
Dashboard visualization and customization
Having telehealth workflows designed with clinician and patient facing customizations in mind is paramount to telehealth success.
Iguana’s customizable dashboard and public APIs allow clinicians to locally and remotely monitor real-time metrics, configure and control interfaces, and access other Iguana features that make for a more seamless digital care experience. Administrative tasks in Iguana such as system installations, upgrades, backups and project sharing are optimized for speed and efficiency, providing the necessary tools for organizations to move quickly and get their systems up and running before they are required to play catch-up.
While the pandemic has pulled back some of the major IT infrastructure changes for the larger players, smaller and medium sized organizations now have the opportunity to better compete when it comes to interoperability. By arming telehealth suites with Iguana, organizations can get a headstart on their digital transformation initiatives well into the future.
