Information Technology (IT) plays a major role in every aspect of healthcare industry. It ensures faster adaptability of advanced technologies, and provision of quality healthcare at affordable prices. It is the desire for healthcare providers to offer the best possible standard of care to each mass by using technology.
According to Forbes, among all IT Solutions, 67% of IT healthcare organizations are running SaaS-based applications today. The main reason to use SaaS based application in multi-tenancy environment which enable all clients and their users consume the service from the same technology platform, sharing all components in the technology stack including the data model, servers, and database layers.
We at Leo TechnoSoft offered SaaS Multi-tenancy platform to our clients so that they could cater to their multiple clients at the same time.
Our client OnCall intend to develop an application that includes features like patient management, doctor management, staff management, leave management, auto scheduler and group classification. However the most important feature was from mobile app that was developed to assist the hospital staff to locate and connect doctor in emergency situation by pushing a single button on their mobile devices.
Healthcare client decided to opt for SaaS solution due to following challenges.
High Costs: Managing infrastructure and technology incurred high costs.
Data synchronization: Our client had faced challenges of synchronisation of data. They found it difficult to establish consistency among data from a source to target data storage and vice versa.
Complexities of business process: Not only business process can be complex, migration from one platform to another platform can also be a complicated process with operations being paused.
Speed of change within business process: Sometimes, when a business process has to migrate from one platform to another, the speed of migrations as well as operations lowers. There was a need of a system where migration to another platform would not hamper the operations.
Customization: Many times, product or service that is available requires tailor-made solutions for a particular client. In such situations, customized solutions are needed.
User management: A multi-tenancy system was required that would enable the management of various user accounts on one single platform.
Vendor management: There was a need to manage multiple vendors (healthcare businesses) in order to ensure long-term vendor relationship.
Challenge regarding IT Governance: There was requirement for formal IT governance tools.
Security: There was a need for a solution that would allow only authorized users access the SaaS service.
Accessibility: There was a requirement of remote access. Access over three different mobile devices and platforms was needed. Along with this multi-device access, there was requirement for discretion regarding usage of data by different doctors accessing it. Hence, conditional and authorized access to data was required.
Easy sharing: Solution was required to support resource sharing based on cloud computing.
Error identification: Functionalities that could quickly catch errors and identify the causes of the errors were required.
Monitoring: Solution needed to be efficient against system errors with enabled comprehensive logging and monitoring.
Administration: A web application that manages a huge database of patients, doctors, medical records and various important documents is not easy to administer. Hence, a solution was required to make it easy to manage the website.
