We are at the juncture of a technological revolution that has put APIs or Application Program Interfaces at the forefront of innovation. APIs are effectively tools to connect applications to other applications without the need for human intervention. This essentially means that applications leave end points that APIs can connect to and gather or submit data. This has the potential to connect seemingly unconnected systems to take data mining to another level.
SmartConnect an Incepta offering
SmartConnect is An API Driven tool that enables connectivity with various systems and devices. It collects data, provides insights and outlooks on smart building management for hospital infrastructure, commercial and residential building complexes. It leverages the full potential of transformative technologies such as 5G, AI and IoT that can revolutionize smart energy management, including lighting, power supply, smart meters, HVAC and wireless power.
SmartConnect does all this by leveraging the power of APIs to build a foundation for data storage, data sharing, analytics of all sensory data related to environment and energy consumption achieving sustainability goals.
SmartConnect for Hospital Infrastructure
The Current Scenario
In a typical healthcare environment, systems are scattered like a big mesh and they need to connect with each other This often leads to a very complex landscape of systems that is very brittle to failure, hard to monitor and also creates a tight dependency on many other systems.
And if you add new systems down the line – each integration becomes as difficult as the last one. The integration becomes hugely complex and daunting. As a result just like other business entities, healthcare decision makers end up with an eco system that are disconnected. Often they spend time just to keep the current system operational instead of innovating and all these results to negative financial and customer implications.
This gives rise to the classical IT budget conundrum of whether to invest on more technologies or just sustain with what exists. Nine out of 10 (91%) IT decision makers believe that unsuccessful digital initiatives will negatively impact revenues in the future. The situation is getting even worse when we find that a whole slew of new age technologies (IoT, Mobile, Big Data, Cloud) that are becoming mainstream in every other industry.
How do we solve this gap?
One logical way to solve this gap is by increasing reuse and consumption and by implementing an approach that will allow you to adopt innovation. By implementing a platform that will take capabilities outside of core IT and technical team.
Introducing SmartConnect – Built using the MuleSoft API Framework SmartConnect enables inter connectivity across all your systems and devices thus enabling organizations to continue working with existing infrastructure and yet leverage the power of digital innovation through data connectivity.
The following diagram demonstrates how different devices in an Out Patient Department can be connected via the SmartConnect system.
Why Smart Connect?
By building an API driven strategy for organizations using multiple systems (legacy or otherwise) they can start laying a foundation for data storage, data sharing and analytics of all sensory and application data. Furthermore, organizations now can plan to design smart apps based on the shared data from multiple sources to create pro-active intelligence driving efficiency in service and product delivery, enriching customer experience and driving loyalty.
