The Postmodern EHR: The Data Layer

May 04, 2016 Tomaž Gornik

When it comes to health data interoperability, there are two schools of thought. The first believes that since there are so many systems already in place, we should agree on the exchange format (and recently the APIs) and convert the proprietary data into that format as needed. This is the preferred approach today when faced with a large installed base of megasuite solutions. The focus here is on ...

I had not followed the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software market closely, but I remember everyone declaring victory for the all-in-one megasuite products not so long ago. It became obvious that the best-of-breed approach had failed, mostly due to the difficulty and cost of integrating disparate systems. The integrated, single-vendor systems emerged as the best practice approach, despite ...

Recently I have come across several articles on the topic of digital business. Everyone is talking about it. I was really surprised when I heard that GE - the biggest manufacturing company in the world, decided to go digital ;) They have been manufacturing physical products for 140 years and now all of a sudden they want to become a service company.
