Healthcare

Health care has always been confronted with a variety of changes: new diseases, medical advances, the introduction of new technologies, discoveries in the fields of research… But in recent years changes have been occurring at an extremely rapid pace.

Medicine and technology have always gone hand in hand

Due to its enormous economic, political and social impact, the modernization of the health sector has become a matter of general concern. Many different factors contribute to the same end goal: to develop a person-centered system that continuously monitors patients' health..

Medicine and technological progress have always gone hand in hand. These two fields — medicine and technology — can be mutually supportive in achieving breakthroughs in both the medium and long term.

Factors such as new patient needs, multiple service delivery possibilities, social changes, and technological penetration have made room for the exploitation of potential opportunities. .A large part of innovation is intrinsically linked to global macro trends at the technological level.

Challenges

Globalization, scarcity of resources, digitization, and demand for personalized services will mark the next decade in the health sector. Information technologies can greatly increase the efficiency of health systems if they are deployed at scale.

Healthcare systems face a set of common challenges

These challenges include an aging population, increasing prevalence of long-term diseases, and rising health and care expenditure.

Information technologies can make health systems much more efficient if deployed at scale. The improvement would be enormous, but the degree of difficulty in implementation is very high. The application of new technologies and management methods is essential to optimize the effective use of resources in an environment where they are scarce.

The quality of information and ensuring its delivery are crucial

As we are talking about information related to the management and treatment of patients. Any error, loss, leakage, or ambiguity of information can be fatal to diagnosis, communication, or the response time of healthcare workers.

Systems need to run smoothly, because the greater the mobility of health professionals, the shorter the response time to the patient. One of the main challenges is the integration of information among the heterogeneous systems that provide services. All of them must communicate continuously and as quickly as possible to ensure the delivery of information. This is a real technical challenge due to the amount of data and operations that systems must handle. They have to be operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without interruption.

Public healthcare

Within Public Healthcare, the transfer of authority to the Autonomous Communities represents an important added difficulty due to the different ICT policies and the multiple information systems that require the development of exchange mechanisms between very different data sources from multiple actors and institutions of diverse nature, public, private, concerted, hospitals, health centers, pharmacies...

Digital is Human

Avalon Healthcare

We support public and private health services in their Digital Transformation, making it better, more affordable, more humane, and accessible.

We work together to create and construct effective and efficient systems, as well as to design and execute innovative, high-quality, cost-effective healthcare delivery models that increase access to treatment and provide improved health outcomes and patient experiences.

We leverage our extensive experience in the healthcare sector and deep understanding of all aspects of the Digital Transformation of healthcare systems to solve the most pressing issues facing the sector.

We work with health and care systems to enable high-quality, cost-effective care at the next levels:

  • Clinical Healthcare: The aim is to make it easier for medical staff to make diagnoses and access patients' clinical information to improve patient care.
  • Administrative Healthcare: Aims to facilitate the management of medical resources and ensure the continuous functioning of health operation protocols. For example, patient appointment systems, medical agenda management, hospital services support systems, digital waiting room signage, operating room schedules, health care benefits management, such as health identifiers and patient-related data are of vital importance for social security to be able to bill and facilitate benefits correctly.
