HP Digital Health solutions integrate existing HP products and solutions to help coordinate information and care across the ecosystem in health care organizations.
Hewlett-Packard is launching several new solutions for the health care industry meant to help health care organizations transform themselves into "Instant-On Enterprises."
The new HP Digital Health solutions integrate existing HP products, solutions and partnerships to help enhance operational efficiencies and the coordination of care across the ecosystem in health care organizations.
"Sweeping regulation and the changing health care landscape are encouraging providers to reorganize into care teams that improve coordination and collaboration across the continuum of health care settings," Scott Lundstrom, group vice president, IDC Health Insights, said in a statement.
"HP’s approach to 'instant-on health care’ should help to address and simplify the transition health care organizations will need to achieve this level of efficiency."
The HP Digital Health portfolio includes several new offerings.
The HP Digital hospital 2.0 helps hospitals coordinate in-patient care by providing an expanded solution framework and formal reference architecture to create an integrated, real-time information management system.
The HP Health Solution Center in Plano, Texas, will give HP, customers and partners a dedicated environment in which to develop solutions.
HP V-Health (Virtual Health Management) is a solution set focused on
the outpatient and home environment that helps link patient care teams.
"Health organizations today run countless systems, tools and applications that are not connected or integrated," said Sandeep Johri, vice president, Strategy and Solutions, HP Enterprise Business, in a statement. "HP’s new end-to-end Digital Health solutions portfolio enables clients to efficiently coordinate care across the extended health care community."
