Investment areas

Improve clinical and operational insights
Healthcare data models and data ingestion provide the foundation for healthcare customers to be successful on Dynamics 365 and Power Platform. Customers can connect data across provider, payor, and pharma to improve decision making, predict risk, improve patient care, and operationalize efficiencies.

The health provider solution connects data from across systems to improve patient care and operational efficiencies through data interoperability.

Deliver trusted member experiences for payors
We're scaling existing care management solutions to payors. Improvements to Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare solutions will provide better support to payor use cases. We're adapting and scaling Patient 360 to build Member 360 services for payors.

Empower health team collaboration
Provider solutions by Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform enable healthcare providers to coordinate safe and effective care. As part of Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, Dynamics 365 and Power Platform support the following healthcare solutions for healthcare providers:

  • Care management: Coordinate care plans and care teams within the Care management solution and in Microsoft Teams (powered by Power Apps).
  • Home health: Schedule and coordinate home visits (powered by Dynamics 365 Field Service).

We're focused on enhancing the Care management solution and improving the coordination between team members.

Enhance patient engagement
We're improving patient journeys, providing patient insights using AI models, and linking prospective patients to new patients upon conversion. We're also improving patient experiences with their providers and enabling data to flow securely through every point of care.

Data management
To help Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare customers accelerate the use of Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform, we provide a starter healthcare data model. We're providing improvements to ensure health data is accessible across provider, payor, and pharma, which will facilitate integration of EHR/EMR systems.

The model aligns with HL7 FHIR standards to support data interoperability with other services. We support near real-time data exchange between Microsoft Dataverse and FHIR endpoints. We provide a new data integration console and improve capabilities of virtual data tables, Sync Admin, and support for 1P/3P connectors.
