The healthcare industry is in the middle of a socio-technological transformation. Today’s “Continuity of Care” models are based on optimizing clinical and revenue processes in order to improve population health and quality of patient care across the “clinical care-touch” points. In reality, there is not much continuity of care. It breaks down quickly when the patient leaves the care setting.
Most care/wellness touch-points are outside the clinical care setting and are in the hands of patients—and are often dictated by socio-economic factors. Emerging mobile devices, wearables/sensors, clouds, and socio-cognitive analytics can play a crucial role by bridging clinical and non-clinical environments in order to provide a true continuity of care. In this session, the panelists will discuss how their organizations are going through such historic transformational change and how they are envisioning their data-driven true continuity-of-care delivery system.
