Anatoly Postilnik, VP of Global Healthcare Consulting at First Line Software, is building software solutions and bringing data management, data analytics, and systems analysis to healthcare organizations. Original EHR systems were implemented to replicate paper flow and siloed data collection. As they move from paper-based to digital data, these organizations need to integrate diverse databases to manage the supply of resources and demand for patient care. Payers and providers also face changes in procedures and behavior to drive down costs and improve efficiency.

Anatoly explains, "Clinician burnout is a really big topic. No matter what you start talking about, you end up talking about clinician burnout. Essentially yes, the demand and supply predictability factors into optimizing their workflow, simplifying their workflow, and eventually reducing provider burnout. But it also helps the organization to be more effective, so this is positive from multiple ends of not just people having better lives as practitioners. But providers practice better when they're in better institutions."

"We know one organization that has 250,000 types of reports, not just reports, 250,000 types of reports. Close to 500 network shares are being populated by these reports on a daily basis. The organization has a team of people who generate these reports on a daily basis, and the turnaround for generating this report is sometimes six months. Now, how many of these reports are duplicates, and how many of these reports are conflicting? And every time somebody generates a report, maybe there already is a report."
