Thoughts on the future of Healthcare Interoperability
Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) is a newly developed standard designed for exchanging healthcare information digitally. Byte Sized Solutions has developed its own application that utilizes the FHIR standard for data exchange called FHIR OPS. This SaaS offering simplifies the process of integrating your healthcare application into any EMR or PM system.

Building MDM Systems for ACO’s
The high cost of low-quality data is something many healthcare organizations can’t afford to absorb. With an MDM solution, Accountable Care Organizations, Health Information Exchanges and organizations involved in merger or acquisition can standardize and pool critical data into a single database, then pull from this common point of reference for accurate reporting and management.
Automation & Machine Learning: Make the most of your resources
There are a number of existing technologies and applications that can be applied to healthcare that alleviate the burden of administration and claims processing while exposing additional benefits. There are some things automation is not great at. Humans remain the best equipped for strategic planning and critical thinking: no one knows your business like you do. But people are also prone to make mistakes.

Archiving can help take the pain out of conversions (and save you some money)
It may not be practical or possible to convert all the relevant clinical or financial data from your old system into your new EHR. Yet it’s crucial for patient care, billing and for medical/legal reasons that you “leave no data behind.” Implementing a robust archive solution eliminates the need to keep your old system running, along with the maintenance and licensing headaches that go with.

Byte Sized Solutions and Occam bring appointment scheduling into the hands of patients
Scheduling health care appointments can be time-consuming for both patient and practice.

How You’re Leaving Money on the Table and What to Do About It
The administration that goes into running a hospital or health system involves a large amount of resources.

In some cases, administrative tasks may be determined to be overly burdensome and skipped altogether when an automated solution may allow this hidden value to be properly mined. There are a number of existing technologies and applications that can be applied to healthcare that alleviate the burden of administration and claims processing while exposing additional benefits.
