HDS: Doctors could review records in three second or less with right tech
Healthcare providers will be able to rapidly process patient records if the right technology is implemented within the next three years.
Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, and participating exhibitor at the ongoing Arab Health conference, believes that GCC doctors will soon have the capability of rapidly reviewing medical records.
According to the information management and social innovation solution specialist, healthcare providers who adopt the latest technologies over the next three years, will enable their staff to review patient medical records in three second or less.
Nick Scholes, data analytics consultant for EMEA at digital healthcare enabler Hitachi Data Systems, commented: "GCC healthcare providers are facing a data explosion, often generating millions of medical images per week across patient records, doctor's notes, and lab results."
"The next three years are vital for GCC healthcare providers to adopt Internet of Things solutions to optimise data. Using an Internet of Things platform, clinicians can use a tablet to view patient data within three seconds, delivering better patient care at lower costs."
Scholes is participating as a keynote speaker at this year's edition of Arab Health and will be presenting on the topic of Extracting Clinical Value from the Healthcare Data Lake.
According to market intelligence firm Gartner, the spend of the MENA medical IT market has reached a record high of $3bn. Similarly, Alpen capital projects that GCC healthcare will nearly double from $40bn in 2015, to reach $71bn by 2020.
