The ability to acquire data from other trusted sources to create a big data environment will be crucial as providers look to optimize analytics in order to improve operations, says Mike Davis. And the key to this, he believes, might be in a new market entrant.
Software development platforms can help reduce the cost of extending healthcare IT capabilities while dramatically improving flexibility and efficiency – if democratized the right way, says Mike Davis of KLAS.

As digital technologies become more pervasive, patients won’t just want to easily access visit notes; they’ll expect it, says KLAS’ Mike Davis, who breaks down the different approaches used to share data from healthcare encounters.
When it comes to selecting a patient engagement solution, healthcare organizations shouldn’t necessarily look to large vendors, says Mike Davis, but rather, tools that “provide assistance and guidance through all phases of care,” and are user-friendly.
