Coordinate care in a way that enables your security and compliance

Microsoft Teams is a digital workspace that centralizes chats, meetings, calls, files, and tools in one place to meet all your healthcare team’s needs.

With Microsoft Teams, you can bring together information from siloed operational systems such as the EHR using Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards. This enables your clinicians to dynamically collaborate around patient information – all in one secure hub that minimizes switching between apps and tools.

“The Institute of Medicine has estimated that care coordination efforts could result in $240 billion in annual healthcare savings.”

In addition, Microsoft Teams is built on the Microsoft 365 cloud to deliver state-of-the-art security and compliance capabilities. This includes identity and access management and threat protection, to enable your health organization to secure data and PHI on the cloud.

You get built-in security, compliance, and manageability features to help your clinicians communicate and collaborate – all backed by advanced security to help customers meet or exceed regulatory compliance needs. Microsoft Teams enables them to be more productive with a single, secure location that brings together everything a team needs.

Strengthen your healthcare partnerships

Microsoft Teams is a hub where your multidisciplinary healthcare teams can communicate and collaborate in a single place that keeps the patient at the center of everything they do.

  • Synchronize activities across multidisciplinary care teams with one place for messaging, video, voice, and screen sharing.
  • Support diagnosis and treatment decisions being made by the care team by providing more comprehensive information at the point of care.

“Organizations around the world including New York State’s largest healthcare provider Northwell Health, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, and Saiseikai Kumamoto Hospital in Japan have chosen Microsoft Teams to enable secure productivity and collaboration for their healthcare clinicians.”
