For instance, let’s check out how salesforce health cloud works to manage patient’s appointments 

To manage appointments in Health Cloud, several steps are involved. 

  • First, the source system’s time slot support needs to be identified. The Health Cloud global interface is then implemented, followed by transforming the input request to match the source electronic health records (EHR) system.
  • The request is then routed to the EHR system, and the appointment information is retrieved. This integration can be done directly or through middleware like Mulesoft. 
  • The Salesforce Provider data model provides the ability to filter and display providers in the user interface. REST callouts from Health Cloud connect with the source system for appointment availability and booking. If needed, custom Apex classes can be created for integration with an appointment management system. 
  • It’s important to note that Health Cloud does not store provider availability or replace existing systems, as the external appointment management system remains the authoritative source for appointment status and provider availability.

Some of the scenarios where Salesforce health cloud becomes crucial 

Personalized Care Plans: Health Cloud enables personalized care plans based on patient-specific data, preferences, and goals, promoting patient engagement and improved health outcomes.

Secure Communication and Collaboration: Health Cloud ensures secure communication and collaboration between patients and healthcare providers, fostering engagement and a collaborative care environment.

Proactive Health Management: Health Cloud utilizes data analytics and artificial intelligence to proactively identify health risks, providing personalized alerts, reminders, and recommendations to promote preventive measures and proactive health management.

Patient Education and Engagement Campaigns: Health Cloud supports targeted patient education and engagement campaigns, providing educational materials, reminders for preventive screenings, and personalized health tips to enhance patient knowledge and foster active engagement in their healthcare journey.

Remote Patient Monitoring: Health Cloud facilitates remote patient monitoring through integration with wearable devices and remote monitoring tools, enabling healthcare providers to collect real-time patient data and promote patient engagement in managing their health remotely.

FYI: The market for remote patient monitoring in the United States was estimated to be worth USD 13.40 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow to USD 25.28 billion by 2028.www.arizton.com
