Addressing the cost of care
As the path out of sky-high healthcare costs, the shift to value-based care and holistic patient-centered care models has warranted a change to how hospitals and health systems approach care delivery. Now more than ever, the livelihood of this evolving care continuum relies on empowering patients to be more active and educated on their own health journey.
Access to evidence-based information and resources at the point of care can help hospitals engage more patients in their own care, with the ultimate goal of improving patient safety and mitigating costly infections and unnecessary expenses. By prioritizing clinician time and effort for at-risk patients while serving everyone, providers can address these concerns efficiently and compassionately.
And yet, very often, the clinical data that can support better decision-making is disbursed and siloed. Solving this problem requires that payers and providers alike have streamlined insights and operations to reduce medical errors, mitigate wasteful spending, and improve billing and reimbursement.
