BlueDragon Use Cases
The healthcare sector includes hospitals, medical practices, insurers, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, skilled nursing and long-term care facilities. With advancing technology, pressure to reduce costs, aging populations, and risks intrinsic to caring for human life, healthcare carries immense complexity.
Typical challenges faced include:
- Medical errors related to misdiagnosis, inappropriate treatment, hospital-acquired infections, and medication safety compromising patient health.
- Implementation of electronic health records and new technology lacking adequately tailored workflows and user training.
- Cyber incidents exposing protected patient health information and medical IP to adversaries.
- Enforcement actions for regulatory noncompliance with care standards, billing integrity, privacy rules, and quality reporting programs.
- Workplace violence and clinician burnout damaging already scarce talent required to meet growing community care needs.
- Inconsistent safety culture across health systems, practices and support services allowing risks to patients and employees go unaddressed.
- Inferior quality products and counterfeit devices resulting in treatment errors and corrective surgeries.
- Poor integration and change management surrounding new technologies like AI, robots, and telehealth tools.
- Public health emergencies and natural disasters causing structural damage, resource constraints and restricted access to routine care.
- Physician, nurse and specialist shortages exacerbating clinician fatigue and rising patient safety risks tied to understaffing.
- Physical security gaps allowing unauthorized access to controlled substances and patient records.
- Diminished oversight into the endemic fraud, waste and abuse bleeding funds needed for patient services.
- Shortened hospital stays and home care models demanding tighter supply chain integration with less room for backorders of critical devices and implants.
