Eighty-seven percent of healthcare executives agree that their organization’s business and technology strategies are becoming inseparable—even indistinguishable. However, few healthcare organizations approached it this way prior to the pandemic. Now they have to. Technology is reshaping industries and accordingly, healthcare leadership demands technology leadership. In today’s world with a rapid influx of new technologies, architecture matters more than ever.
There are more technology choices than ever and the selections that an organization makes can define its value proposition today and tomorrow. It’s a battle of technology stacks. From the distribution of cloud deployments, types of artificial intelligence (AI) models and wide range of edge devices, to the design, or even basic physics, of hardware and computation – each layer of the stack is expanding into new dimensions. There is ample room for ingenuity, but it will require dynamic, sustainable architectures that take advantage of the full spectrum of capabilities today.
The most dynamic, sustainable and competitive architectures will allow healthcare organizations to build unique solutions that evolve with the organization’s goals. As such, 73% of healthcare executives say that their technology architecture is becoming critical to the overall success of their organization.
