Enabling Collaborative Workflows to Shape Mobile Healthcare
• How will healthcare change with the implementation of advanced workflow collaboration?
• How will patients be informed and engaged, and providers empowered?
The shift toward collaborative care has risen to become the most prominent issue in healthcare today and is not easily addressed by the fragmented entities along the healthcare continuum. In order to deliver collaborative care, a drastic shift in the way healthcare is practiced and perceived is beginning to take place. One example of how this is occurring is the shift toward preventative medicine. Attention and investment are being shifted toward prevention and wellness solutions in order to reduce the rapid growth in healthcare costs required to treat avoidable chronic conditions. Both preventative care and disease management require interaction among healthcare stakeholders at various points along the care continuum.
At the core of this transition are new collaborative workflow solutions that allow a more complete and holistic approach to healthcare. The affect of improved collaborative workflows is wide-reaching. In addition to reducing the limitations of the complex and siloed healthcare environment, this shift promotes more patient-centric care. Collaborative care models are also aligned with reducing overall costs within the healthcare system, and risk-sharing arrangements between payers and groups of providers. Achieving collaborative workflows is not an easy undertaking for the healthcare sector, but with the help of innovative solutions, providers can more quickly and effectively achieve better collaboration across the various healthcare environments.
