Salesforce recognises how vast and vital the healthcare sector is to everyone, and has established a cloud focused on this sector to improve patient and internal user experiences.
In this blog we’ll look into what Health Cloud does and what you can gain from using it.
What is Health Cloud?
Health Cloud is built on Service Cloud, one of Salesforce’s most popular offerings. Health Cloud is a set of functionality that allows patient liaisons and healthcare professionals to monitor, segment and prioritise patient data. This cloud partnership provides the healthcare sector with improved and personalised customer service, as well as, internally, showing healthcare professionals a 360-degree holistic view of their patients. These advantages are possible through features such as smart case management functionality, EHR-to-Salesforce API connections and secure record management.
Now that we’ve covered an overview of Health Cloud, let’s define some of the key terminology!
