Data integration and bad practices. Discover the 7 deadly sins of data integration. In that part you will discover sloth and lust.

SIN N°3 : SLOTH

YOUR SITUATION

1 / Everybody dreams of it – at least once in a while. But the route forward appears too difficult to dream of

2 / Tight purse-strings mean you cannot buy what you need, which is a complete solution for integration

3 / Your organisation doesn’t seem to have a big appetite to outsource: for budget issues, expertise lacks, etc.

4 / Your organisation expects your supplier to develop a new interface and even upgrade their API to the standard (and preferably for free).

YOUR EXPECTATIONS

1 / A tried and tested solution designed specifically for healthcare integration based on standards, and without dependency on expensive external consultants and developer-level programming skills, meaning you want a user-friendly solution that your own staff can use

2 / A way to work with the systems since you need to measure quick gains in sharing information

3 / An interoperability solution that meets the healthcare standards as they are developped

SIN N°4 : LUST

YOUR SITUATION

1/ You want a fresh start with new systems

2 / You may be thinking of using an open source solution

3 / The new trendy version may be the application you’ve always been waiting for

4 / In designing your own application, you’re convinced to sell it to Google or Facebook

YOUR EXPECTATIONS

1 / A vendor who can support you and develop their product for a long-term relationship

2 / Less thrills and more stability

3 / Someone who understands you and your needs: a specialist in healthcare interoperability

4 / Low maintenance
