The healthcare and insurance industries both face operational challenges in providing service in an environment that demands near instantaneous response and seamless connectivity across multiple platforms. Consumers have grown accustomed to instant purchases and mobile data access; coupled with the requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, major changes are afoot. It will be impossible to meet these challenges without top-notch healthcare and insurance application development.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which was signed into law in 2009 to stimulate the economy during the global economic crisis, requires the transition to electronic medical records (EMR), and is a primary driver of the need for healthcare software development companies.

In 2008, the year before the Recovery Act was passed, 38% of healthcare providers utilized EMR, according to the CDC. By 2013, a year prior to these changes becoming mandatory, 73% of healthcare providers had transitioned to electronic records. Those that do not maintain EMR risk losing Medicare and Medicaid funding.

While the initial transition has already occurred, there are still healthcare software development needs, especially with regard to interoperability between providers. According to a study by Premier, a healthcare alliance group, 95% of healthcare providers report that a lack of interoperability limits their ability to transfer data from one medical center to another.

These difficulties are also present in the communication between healthcare providers and insurance companies. Identifying and implementing insurance software development solutions will allow communication between healthcare systems, other insurance companies, and government portals such as Medicare and Medicaid.

The USA has begun the transition to EMR; the process is underway in Western Europe, as well, with varying results. Britain, France, Germany, and Holland have all invested billions of dollars in attempts to adopt an EMR system.

"95% of healthcare providers report that a lack of interoperability limits their ability to transfer data from one medical center to another."

These efforts have been largely abandoned, however, and these countries must reassess their approach to EMR functionality. Denmark, however, has assembled a system that stands as the current benchmark of success for all other nations to model. Denmark’s system has high interoperability and tracks 98% of every citizen’s contact with the healthcare system, including prescriptions. Every country should achieve this standard.
