002 Why Is It So Hard To Integrate IT Into Healthcare? (Tomaz Gornik, Marand)

Remember how if you go from central Europe to the UK or US, you can’t plug your charger into a socket, because they are different? They are not compatible. This is how a lot of medical data looks like. Data from devices in hospitals or from sensors and trackers cannot be transferred to your medical record automatically unless they are in a proper format. This can be done if systems are interoperable or compatible. In this episode, Tomaž Gornik, the CEO of an IT company Marand explains, how they managed to make the Slovenian University Children’s Hospital the first paperless hospital in the country and why digitisation of healthcare is happening so slowly.
