Frankly, we know what works and what doesn’t.
Fundamentally, population health management is about people and communication. It requires those involved in a patient’s care to share information so to provide as clear a picture as possible of the patient’s past and present care needs and as well as valid and useful reminders about key items and actions that are missing.
Strategic partnerships are the key to a quick impact on costs, quality and patient satisfaction. Technology and interoperability are in the middle of rapid change, moving from PC to cloud and mobile. Every connected system must be both a sender and receiver of data for true scale. It’s a waste of time and money to re-create technical functionality. This does nothing but drive money into even more systems that require even more integration. And systems that require more integration create more islands of data. Delivering reliable, portable sentinel information to the right place at the right time is the key priority and it can be done today in a way that makes care work better and faster.
The reality is technology driven islands don’t fix care. In fact, most of the variable care cost on hospitalizations is related to the post-acute continuum, which doesn’t connect with the typical EMR system. Organizations that win are open to conducting rapid cycle tests of small (pilot) changes with their available resources and realize that paper is not a barrier to success. As an example, like it or not, faxes still remain the de facto tool for bridging incompatible chnologies.
Value measured in hours and days verses weeks and months is at the core of everything ConfidentHealth does.
