This week, our blog series focuses on Cloud Productivity in the Healthcare system. Todays blog will focus specifically on CxOs (Executives), but be sure to stay tuned for our upcoming blog on healthcare IT professionals.
Executives in the healthcare industry face many challenges, including reducing costs, increasing revenue, and streamlining services and operations on small and large scales. Thankfully, Cloud-based services, especially Microsoft’s Office 365, provide these executives with the necessary tools to face and solve these issues. We’ll be going in depth on three topics and how O365 can help:
Mergers and Acquisitions
The main challenge for executives when it comes to mergers and acquisitions is the efficient integration of new employees (both in deployment and communications). Office 365 provides tools to make this process easy. In terms of deployment, O365 is one of the easiest and cheapest Cloud-based services to integrate, all while being one of the most performant. When it comes to communication, thanks to many tools provided with O365 such as Yammer, Skype for Business, SharePoint, and many more, new employees will catch up to the work culture and projects in no time!
One of the main roles of a CxO is to evaluate employee and process performances in order to determine where appropriate change and reallocation of resources are needed. With Microsoft’s Business Intelligence (BI) tools available with Office 365, executives can easily collect and analyze data to improve performance in the industry, all without the help of IT! Power BI Pro allows you to quickly and easily visualize and analyze data by connecting you to a broad range of live data through easy-to-use dashboards, providing interactive reports, and delivering compelling visualizations that bring data to life. Excel 2016, a very popular tool, is the most powerful analysis tool in your arsenal, with integrated publishing to Power BI and new modern chart types to help you make the most of your data. From forecasting trends in Excel 2016 to visualizing complex data with Power BI, O365 helps executives make performance tracking a much easier and more efficient part of their job.
Remote Worker Integration
Office 365 offers CxOs tools to properly connect the entire clinical ecosystem in a seamless manner, thereby cutting costs and increasing revenue. O365’s mobile solutions allow the entire work staff to work from anywhere while connecting to more patients and resources. By making the decision to implement solutions such as Skype for Business, SharePoint Online, and Office Mobile Apps, executives cut costs of transportation and communication, among others, and therefore increase their profit margins, allowing them to spend more in different areas.
Clearly, moving to a Cloud-based infrastructure, namely Office 365, can not only provide Executives with amazing tools to improve their work, but can serve to improve the healthcare industry as a whole.
