As electronic medical records systems have become commonplace in today’s healthcare environment, more questions are being asked as to how various aspects of technology can be used to improve the performance and security of these systems. Whether this involves installing new types of software that are better able to process large amounts of information, utilizing cloud technology to help store data in a more secure fashion, or designing and installing data networks that process data more efficiently than previous systems, coming up with these and other innovative solutions to complex problems is usually left to experts in the growing field of healthcare IT. But with CVS and Aetna becoming business partners, and Amazon getting pharmacy licensing in many states across the nation, it’s more important than ever to ensure patient and customer data be kept secure. To ensure this happens, Drew Madden and his team of healthcare IT consultants from Nordic Consulting Partners are constantly stepping up to the challenge each and every time.
With many electronic medical systems in use today, healthcare companies and facilities fail to recognize the software used to power these systems may not have the networking capabilities to do so. As a result, systems often wind up having holes in them that allow for data breaches to occur, leading to large amounts of personal data to be leaked. By understanding this is one of the main reasons why these systems fail, Drew carefully analyzes the software used in these systems, then uses the information to create new types of software that can work much better with cloud technology to protect and store large amounts of patient information.
By using various aspects of industrial engineering and software development, Drew Madden has established himself as a healthcare IT entrepreneur who has a very clear vision regarding the future of this innovative technology. Realizing electronic medical records will be called upon to process and store even larger amounts of data in the years to come, Drew continues to examine how cloud technology, data networks, and software can work together to create records systems that perform as needed.
