Transform the Journey of Care

The pandemic brought many trials and tribulations to an already overburdened healthcare system. But it also brought opportunity for those who were able to innovate and collaborate like never before. This hard-earned wisdom led to visions of a more resilient and agile healthcare ecosystem — one that moves from reactively treating conditions to proactively keeping people well. But what’s missing are the next-gen models of care that will harness technology to improve outcomes, enhance experiences, and bend the cost curve. Transformation will require us to align the interests of multiple stakeholders across the care ecosystem. No one expects this change to happen quickly or easily. The challenges are substantial. But so are the opportunities and benefits for our industry and our society.

Future Focused Initiatives

Distributed Care Strategy

As care moves to lower-cost venues outside the hospital, traditional care models start to break down — adherence, patient monitoring, and staff management become more challenging and complicated. New business models and processes will be needed to make this model of care a viable reality.

Wellness Models

What types of services and benefits can be designed to keep people well versus treating them once they’re sick? In addition to economic benefits for hospitals, insurance companies, and employers, wellness care and support services for healthy lifestyle changes are powerful ways to empower patients on their healthcare journey.

Digital Patient Experience

Many people can access their health records online today. But that digital experience is still largely siloed (within a single healthcare system) or transactional (focused on little more than records access, appointment booking, or bill payments). The race is on to provide a more complete, more holistic digital patient experience — a digital front door and beyond.
