Healthcare organizations face unique challenges in delivering quality care, maintaining compliance, and empowering healthcare providers. Together with Element Blue, we’ve outlined how healthcare organizations can optimize their enterprise search and findability. Download the free ebook here.

For a brief overview, here are four key questions these organizations need to address:

Systems for knowledge management: Healthcare organizations require various interlocking systems, including document management, data warehouses, intranets, and wikis. These systems facilitate capturing, storing, analyzing, and collaborating on electronic documents, data, and information.

Relevant information for employees: Productivity is enhanced when employees have easy access to up-to-date information. Quality knowledge management systems should collect signals on user interactions, match queries with user behavior, leverage machine learning to surface relevant documents, and allow user expertise to influence rankings. Tailoring information based on employee roles and interests is also essential.

Efficient information assembly: Enabling employees to quickly find relevant information saves costs and enhances decision-making. A comprehensive search bar that integrates all internal data sources, including intranets, knowledge bases, and cloud storage, is crucial. The search capabilities should scale to handle growing documentation and data.

Evaluating the effectiveness of the knowledge management system: A well-functioning system results in data circulation, surfacing of relevant documents, and avoidance of duplicate work. Monitoring these factors indicates if the enterprise search solution is working optimally. Over time, the system should lead to faster innovation, improved employee satisfaction, and reduced infrastructure costs.

A quick note on generative intelligence tools

Generative intelligence tools, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms, can play a role in healthcare. They help professionals analyze large datasets, identify patterns, and trends in patient data. Platforms like Lucidworks Fusion serve as accelerators and protectors, facilitating the implementation of large language models in search applications.

By addressing these key questions and leveraging appropriate technologies, healthcare organizations can enhance their knowledge management systems, improve efficiency, and drive better outcomes.
