Prescription for Efficiency and Innovation: DevOps

January 28, 2022
Published by

DevOps brings many benefits to any organization and we’ve seen increased DevOps implementation in industries such as Financial Services, Industrial/Manufacturing, and Retail/Consumer industries. Yet Healthcare, an industry with great cause and incentive for implementing DevOps, lags in adoption. However, the healthcare industry is rapidly developing data-driven technology solutions to further patient-centered care all while reducing costs. With the healthcare landscape shifting to an on-demand delivery system of medical services and solutions, healthcare providers and hospitals are turning to DevOps to advance healthcare innovation.

DevOps is a culture that by definition focuses on the delivery of advanced services and capabilities through continuous processes. This, to reduce the systems development life cycle. It also allows for the rapid delivery of features, fixes, and updates while significantly reducing the time to market. This is especially important for healthcare organizations that need to remain competitive by evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. The proliferation of healthcare data, coupled with the stringent requirements set forth by HIPAA, GxP, and GDPR presents a unique challenge that DevOps is positioned to revolutionize.

Larger Scale Efficiency

Healthcare companies can perform a small but frequent part in terms of leveraging only the resources needed to develop an application or solution, made possible by DevOps enabling innovation to proceed at a faster rate and reducing the risks associated with traditional software development. On the technology front, this often manifests itself in CICD (Continuous Integration Continuous Deployment) pipelines, microservice adoption, blue/green deployments, and other service delivery approaches. This approach is very helpful for teams because they can address bugs faster and deploy updates more frequently.

The division of development and operations teams results in a slowdown in productivity. DevOps can help healthcare providers innovate faster through automating and streamlining the software development and infrastructure management processes. Plus, by removing the barriers between development and operations, two traditionally separate or siloed teams, a DevOps model creates an environment where the teams work together. This optimizes both the productivity of developers and the reliability of operations. Also enables software and applications to be built using a microservices architecture. As such, it facilitates increased flexibility which, in turn, can enable organizations to innovate at a faster rate. 

Data-Driven Tech Solutions  

Extracting accurate and meaningful insights from healthcare data can be challenging. However the opportunity to convert data-driven findings into relevant critical insights and deliver improved patient care is equal to moving medicine forward in the modern age. Patient data will continue to grow, and healthcare providers have turned to DevOps to accelerate their complex big data project deployments. With a variety of data sources ranging from Electronic Health Records (EHRs), medical devices, pharmacies, and lab reports, to insurance claims, comes the need to structure, update and analyze that data for effective and improved healthcare delivery.

The ability to leverage DevOps in the analysis of big data healthcare sets can help providers reduce treatment costs, predict outbreaks of epidemics, avoid preventable diseases and improve patient quality of care and outcomes.

DevOps Outcome

Advanced incompatible development platforms, built to ensure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of protected health information. These have enabled a more agile environment for healthcare innovation. All by combining development and operations teams with security and quality control. The DevOps model creates improved efficiencies and coordination benefits while streamlining processes that help reduce time to market. Also implementing DevOps practices for IT operations enables healthcare providers and hospitals to serve their patients more effectively and remain competitive in the marketplace, ultimately improving patient outcomes at lower costs.

DevOps will bring a lot of innovation to the health care sector. This culture brings optimization in operations that results in a significant improvement for patient care.
