Infrastructure is often seen as the physical foundation of the enterprise. In the world of clinical technology, infrastructure means integrating the clinical records, patient operations and treatment outcome information into an operational system. It becomes a finely tuned machine only when performing a number of functions. Well designed, well executed infrastructure is the successful foundation that fuels, commerce, competition and growth of successful units of service everywhere in the organization.
In for-profit commercial business it’s widely recognized: “as goes your infrastructure, so goes the entire enterprise”. In this fast paced economic climate, all the best clinical services, great communications, brilliant marketing won’t amount to much if it takes your counselors forever and a day to update their patient treatment plans and notes. More recently managed care plans are requiring all treatment plans to be updated daily. Operations failing to meet these newly minted expectations by 3rd party payers can no longer respond by telling managed care entities, “Sorry we don’t have the information now, but can we call you back later tomorrow”? Obviously, this is the type of response most managed care entities simply don’t want to hear.
