Developing Mission-Critical Solutions
In healthcare, patients' lives depend on teams of people working together. And that includes IT. Interoperability is critical, yet with no infrastructure for clinical standardization, securely exchanging sensitive vital patient information or any other important data or communications, is impossible. CollabNet is actively working to change that, with TeamForge.
The mandate for interoperability requires active coordination of development teams both within and outside of the enterprise. Sharing of system assets and on-boarding new teams must be balanced with the requirement for security and privacy.
The productivity of development teams is hampered by an inability to work closely with counterparts within and outside of the organization and further compounded by security risks.
Though governed collaboration and shared innovation provided by TeamForge's secure community architecture software development platform, healthcare standardization, and interoperability are delivered.
Only about 8% of the nation's 5,000 hospitals and 17% of its 800,000 physicians currently use the Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems envisioned for the entire nation.
