Customer Stories - Northwell Health speeds development and adoption of innovative apps that improve patient care using Microsoft Teams as a platform

Dear partner community,

 

An average patient at Northwell Health generates about 5,000 data points during a five-day hospital visit. Even the most tech-savvy physicians must spend too much time just accessing that information. “Electronic medical record [EMR] systems were not designed to make this amount of information consumable. Every activity that you do in the EMR takes a long time,” says Dr. Vish Anantraman, Chief Innovation Officer for Technology at Northwell Health. “Today, clinicians may spend 50 percent of their day in front of a computer. Having our most expensive resources sit at a computer instead of seeing patients is not financially productive. We want to let our clinicians spend more time with patients, which is what they want and what the patients want as well.”

 

"Now our clinicians can look at all their communications and access the information that they need about their patients with Microsoft Teams"
