Problem – Slow Access to Patient Records
Today's healthcare profession is under a number of business and government mandates to digitize patient information and make that information immediately available upon request. In addition, healthcare providers need to access multiple patient records from various sources, such as HMOs, hospitals and other doctors, to get a full view of a patient’s history, especially in the event of an emergency life or death situation.
Healthcare information system professionals need to access these distributed patient records and integrate the information in order to get a complete patient picture into doctors’ hands faster. The real-time analytical applications and databases involved in these processes are accessing huge amounts of data, including large image files and I/O bottlenecks caused by data latency can delay that critical patient data from being readily accessed when needed.
