Google Cloud study finds overwhelming physician support for interoperability efforts

A new batch of research from Google Cloud finds near-universal agreement among physicians that interoperability should be a top priority for the hospitals and health systems where they practice.

Of the 300-plus physicians polled by The Harris Poll by Google Cloud, 96% said efforts to enable access to needed clinical data will help improve patient safety and could help save lives. Only slightly fewer (95%) said more seamless data exchange will lead to better patient outcomes, while 86% percent said interoperability that ensures the right data is available for the right person at the right time enables faster diagnoses.

The clinicians surveyed say they have an appetite to provider “more personalized care with increased operational efficiency,” said Dr. Joe Corkery, director of product management for healthcare and life sciences at Google Cloud, in a blog post .

“More than 9 in 10 physicians say the ability to efficiently incorporate patient data into care plans is critical to care coordination (91%), and the use of inefficient electronic health records systems (which require excessive scrolling, pop-ups, manual data entry, etc.) has had a negative impact on their ability to deliver quality care (92%). Most physicians (90%) say if they […]
