Despite the dramatic rise in virtual visits during the height of the Covid-19, the market for telehealth solutions is still immature and carries a high risk. However, vendors have an opportunity to improve their offerings, according to KLAS.
Patient-focused care is no longer just a platitude; it’s a platform that will ensure long-term viability for providers who can successfully implement primary care models, says Mike Davis, who examines the growing digital technology market.
The ability to acquire data from other trusted sources to create a big data environment will be crucial as providers look to optimize analytics in order to improve operations, says Mike Davis. And the key to this, he believes, might be in a new market entrant.
Software development platforms can help reduce the cost of extending healthcare IT capabilities while dramatically improving flexibility and efficiency – if democratized the right way, says Mike Davis of KLAS.
Instead of requiring patients to use a portal to schedule visits or access their information, why not push these services out in an interactive manner, asks Mike Davis, who suggests it might be time for a hybrid approach to engagement.
