What is driving the need to increase the digitalisation of infrastructure?
Bruno Candès: Like in most sectors, digital tools and big data can help reduce costs, improve efficiency and enable infrastructure assets to optimise performance or capacity. Take private hospitals, for example – a sector where we are working on digital transformations right now. Our goal there is to develop a unified healthcare information system in order to have one single source of data for clinical, administrative and financial information, thereby enabling frictionless interaction across the entire patient journey.
This encompasses developing a strong digital backbone from electronic health records and enterprise resource planning platforms that are able to interact with other highly specialised digital healthcare solutions.
