It’s Time for Healthcare to Replace Slow Manual Data Processes with EDI

Does your organisation still rely of mountains of paperwork and manual procedures to transfer data? If so, electronic data interchange (EDI) is a more secure, cost-effective, and accurate way to exchange healthcare data.

The future is here, and it’s changing the healthcare industry

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated many technological advancements in the healthcare industry.
Here are 3 important health tech innovations that are beginning to make waves:

Predictive Analytics

Predictive Analytics

Already, artificial intelligence (AI) is aiding
medical professionals in making quicker, more
accurate decisions – based on a wealth of past patient data. Predictive analytics works to assess risks, predict results, and improve
patient outcomes.

Precision Medicine

Precision Medicine

Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach, precision medicine is tailored to the individual. Taking into account genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors. Precision medicine empowers healthcare providers to make more timely and informed decisions.

Preventive Medicine

McKinsey & Co predict a 40% decrease in the
global disease burden by 2040. Technologies
that aid disease prevention, such as wearable
devices and gene editing, will likely play a key
role in making this happen. Faster, more efficient data exchange is also a critical factor.

Is your healthcare organisation facing the following challenges?

Patient data is still not routinely shared amongst many providers – leading to a lack of visibility, delays, and harmful patient outcomes. 

Lack of Transparency

Patient data that is withheld by medical providers amounts to huge unnecessary healthcare costs. In some cases, this leads to incorrect treatments that result in dangerous patient outcomes. This lack of transparency is a critical issue that must be addressed by the industry at large.

Slow Legacy Technologies

In general, new healthcare technologies require iteration before they can fully be relied upon. When the stakes are high, this iterative process can result in serious consequences. Result, healthcare professionals are stuck with inefficient, outdated technologies.

Manual Processing Errors

Every day, countless hours are lost to manual data handling. Not only are these paper and manual procedures inefficient and expensive, but data entry errors inevitably occur. These mistakes can take weeks to fix and in some circumstances negatively affect patient outcomes.

Healthcare EDI provides quick, flexible solutions

Cut out slow, costly processes with fully automated end-to-end EDI software solutions. Data Interchange has over 35 years experience helping increase healthcare supply chain efficiency.

Here are 3 ways EDI can help your organisation:

Secure & HIPAA Compliant

It’s not secure to send and receive data in 100s of different formats. Step up data security with encrypted standardised EDI formats. Where only the transaction recipient can decrypt the file.

Reduce Claim Errors

Paper-based claims are prone to errors. And mistakes lead to lengthy payment delays. But EDI claim verification is fast, effortless, and greatly increases data accuracy.
