Healthcare's Global Imperative to Improve Care & Outcomes at a Lower Cost

This holy grail is unobtainable without proper technological foundation

The demand for and cost of healthcare is rising, which is challenging most healthcare economies. At the same time, digital technology is advancing steadily and its costs are lowering. The need to adopt technology to meet the healthcare cost and quality challenges is fairly obvious; however, in many ways, the healthcare industry has been slower than other industries in using technology with its service providers, patients and caregivers. 

TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE

What does connected health require of its stakeholders?

CommunicationCollaboration
BOTH ARE CORRECT
Connected health encompasses the communication and collaboration that needs to occur between all the stakeholders involved in a patient’s health.
« BACK TO QUESTION

The future of sustainability and improved economies of healthcare are being threatened by a number of factors, including:

Constrained budgets and the rising costs of advanced medical treatments
Increasing complexity and costs of delivering care to the aging population
Higher patient expectations and demand for better quality, patient centered healthcare
Physician shortage requires better utilization of healthcare delivery
The healthcare industry is aware of these challenges and is working to address them, at least in part with technological investment. For example, capital will continue to be used in information technology tools and, in some cases, replacement of electronic health records.

With the proliferation of population health tools and analytical systems also comes the need for new structures for data governance within health systems.
