Emerging economies may exceed mature ones by 2020

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources

Today, many new innovators are playing an important role in the very rapid growth of data multiplication, in the health sector to be specific. Advances derived from technology have helped healthcare employees to now have online access to almost all the healthcare information needed to cater to their customers.

However, this growth is causing difficulties to the healthcare workers as they now have to deal with a very large variety of data. This may lead to the emerging economies being data-rich but information-poor, meaning having lots of data but not being able to derive useful information.

Nevertheless, emerging economies may be able to avoid this pothole by

  • Forming a skilled and talented workforce
  • Breaking down isolated data and converting it to information

Technology makes advancements every day and with it, the needs of the employees also evolve. They need to learn how to work new technology so that it can be helpful to them and the patients. A good way to implement technology is by surveying and analyzing the skills of the employees, and how the implementation of technology might influence their positions in the sector for the next decade.

As more advancements are made, more knowledge and skills will be required to work those technologies. To help the staff develop skills, they can be trained through development programs specially designed for healthcare workers.

Emerging economies wish to come forward and become the first ones to adopt innovation across sectors other than healthcare as well. Institutions are working on developing programs and curricula to help the workers of emerging markets develop their skills. Moreover, technological advancements may result in more job opportunities as well.

It’s crucial that data is converted to useful information through interoperability. Only a few health systems have access to it between providers and facilities. This is because of the major obstruction being the lack of a standardized system to transmit data from one information system to the other.

The FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) has taken a very important step towards tackling this issue. They have proposed a better, standardized model for data and the workflow.

Emerging economies can adopt the FHIR’s standard which is easy to work with as it provides a better means of transmission of information. This will also reduce their costs and help them move forward at a greater pace.
