The healthcare guide to the Salesforce Spring ’23 Release

Mar 21, 2023 | Admin, Health and Life Sciences, Healthcare, Latest News

To say the healthcare industry has undergone change in the past three years is a radical understatement. Pushed to its limits and forced to transform due to the pandemic, the healthcare industry is now at a critical juncture: to continue innovating or to resume status quo operations? 

Each organization in the space will have to make its own choice, and the sooner, the better. Patients expect more from their healthcare providers, payors, and pharmaceuticals. And they’ve been empowered to seek new options when one is no longer satisfying their wishes. To keep patient trust and loyalty, healthcare organizations need to be proactive and innovative when it comes to the technical processes that keep them in line with patients. Salesforce Health Cloud, with its regular patient-focused updates, is designed to do just that. 

The Spring ‘23 Salesforce release helps healthcare leaders provide more quality, human-centered care within intelligent healthcare frameworks. Couple ongoing updates like these with Simplus’ strong background and experience in implementing healthcare-focused solutions on the platform, and you have a system set up for long-lasting success. Let’s review four key highlights of the latest Salesforce release for the industry:


Human-centered care with Integrated Care Management

Integrated Care Management within Health Cloud is a new feature designed to give your patients a higher level of care without depending on the Health Cloud managed package. The interoperable feature includes integrations with OmniStudio, Action Plans, and Discovery Frameworks for intuitive visibility. Some of the key functionalities of this feature include the following:

  • Creating care plans with guided OmniScript flows
  • Building out a repository of reusable care templates and definitions
  • Receiving personalized recommendations within care plans for identified problems or goals
  • Creating dependent intervention tasks on Action Plan templates
  • Customizing care plans with OmniStudio

The newest capabilities include: 

  • Real-time call details capturing
