Microsoft has launched the Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare to provide healthcare organization with a suite of new tools designed to help them recover from the COVID-19 crisis.
The new offering, announced last week, includes “provides trusted and integrated capabilities that deliver automation and efficiency on high-value workflows as well as deep data analysis functionality for both structured and unstructured data, that enable healthcare organizations to turn insight into action,” wrote Tom McGuinness, corporate vice president of worldwide health at Microsoft, in a blog post.
“This end-to-end, industry-specific cloud solution includes released and new healthcare capabilities that unlock the power of Microsoft 365, Azure, Dynamics 365, and Power Platform,” McGuinness wrote.
“It makes it faster and easier to provide more efficient care and helps customers support end-to-end security, compliance, and interoperability of health data. A robust partner ecosystem extends the value of the platform with additional solutions to address the most urgent challenges the healthcare industry is facing today.”
Specifically, the new solution includes tools to help healthcare organizations engage with patients virtually, empower the collaboration of healthcare organizations, improve clinical and operational data insights and support connected experiences across healthcare workflows.
Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare is designed to help healthcare organizations integrate secure virtual health tools by creating workflow cohesive AI bots and virtual visits into the organization, according to McGuinness.
The solution helps facilitate patient access to secure portals and mobile tools to help connect them with healthcare professionals, and patient insights provide organizations with data that helps to optimize the patient experience.
For internal collaboration, the solution represents a 360-degree patient view that helps teams collaborate and share knowledge in a single secure place.
Advanced messaging features like priority notifications, smart camera and message delegation are also included. Teams can use data integrated across clinical systems and applications to help accelerate treatment decisions and improve care.
