Healthcare continues to rapidly transform digitally, increasing the demand for new and better technologies to support clinician and patient workflows. To advance your health system’s digital transformation, it’s critical to first understand the information technology infrastructure supporting day-to-day operations, and then create a go-forward plan for advancement. But devising a comprehensive, sustainable infrastructure strategy can be a challenge. You need a proven methodology and reliable tools to guide the way. Pixel Health’s proprietary Infrastructure Adoption Model (INFRAM+) provides a trusted framework to synthesize infrastructure improvements with digital end-user strategies to improve patient, family, and staff outcomes. Through an INFRAM+ assessment and subsequent implementation plan, health systems can optimize IT investments for better ROI, support more efficient clinical workflows, and improve patient care.
INFRAM+ starts with an assessment of infrastructure current state and gives a clear view of architecture strengths and opportunities for improvement. The model evaluates key infrastructure domains including wireless mobility, unified communication & collaboration, network transport, security, and data centers to illustrate the interactions and dependencies between domains, and identify changes needed to achieve best results.
Most importantly, INFRAM+ enables IT alignment with clinical goals. Pixel Health’s strategy mapping methodology involves meeting with key clinical leaders to explore business and operational goals and using these insights to refine the IT roadmap. Through this cross-functional approach IT professionals are empowered to understand the clinician technology experience more deeply. Clinicians gain a critical understanding of IT decision making and have the opportunity to provide input. These newly opened channels of communication create the all-important link between infrastructure and the doctors and nurses who rely on technology daily. IT and Clinical leadership can collaborate on strategy and prioritize plans, assuring the right technology is purchased for the right people at the right time. As a result of the INFRAM+ approach, our client’s clinical applications run on a more resilient and reliable IT platform, improving clinician satisfaction, workflow efficiency, and care delivery.
