To boost patient engagement, health team collaboration, and enhance clinical and operational insights, Microsoft officially launched Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare.
The new product provides trusted and integrated capabilities that deliver workflow automation and efficiency, as well as deep data analysis for structured and unstructured data, according to the health IT giant.
In addition, through capabilities that integrate with Microsoft 365, Azure, Dynamics 365, and Power Platform, Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare will allow care teams to coordinate and deliver seamless care management.
These capabilities aim to support end-to-end security, compliance, and interoperability of health data, said Tom McGuinness, corporate vice president at Microsoft.
Using IoT and artificial product intelligence, Microsoft said that through online appointment booking, reminders management, bill pay, and physician referrals, organisations can create secure health data monitoring for patients and simplify routine tasks.
By building workflow artificial intelligence bots, Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare also aims to help supplier organisations implement virtual health capabilities. This enables more encounters with patients and new medical specialties, a key tool during the pandemic.
In particular, Microsoft Healthcare Bot Services benefited more than 31 million people across 23 countries, as reported by Microsoft back in May. To create COVID-19 evaluation tools and reduce stress on frontline workers, the CDC and various healthcare systems are leveraging this service. Over 1,600 instances of COVID-19 bots based on the Microsoft service have gone live since March.
“The rise of technology-driven innovation may improve healthcare organization’s ability to transform their care ecosystem to deliver more convenient, integrated care to consumers, enhance productivity of providers, and improve outcomes while lowering cost,” McGuinness concluded.
