Addressing the number preventable cause of U.S. deaths through technology
Healthcare systems in the U.S. are challenged with creating a healthier population and providing a better healthcare experience for patients—all while decreasing costs. Despite new strategies, innovations and large-scale policy efforts, there has not been much change when it comes to meeting all three goals in tandem. Establishing an approach to population health seems to be the most logical place to start, especially as more providers adopt value-based care models. An obvious solution for health systems is the integration of technology and usage of new applications to support value-based care models.
With recent attempts to integrate health records with consumer data, there are researchers and app developers getting access to these data sets. As such, health systems now have a unique opportunity to invest in the creation of evidence-based, bespoke interfaces/apps to address lingering public health challenges. Doing so could potentially cut billions of dollars in healthcare costs.
