Forget shiny tool syndrome; true digital transformation is about leveraging capabilities to ensure the best possible experience for patients, and to “earn the right” to become their primary care provider, said our panelists during a recent webinar.
As the market for healthcare IT staffing continues to grow, selecting the right firm becomes increasingly overwhelming, according to KLAS’ Kaleb Harris and Jennifer Despain, who provide insights on how to make the best choice for your organization.
Simply saying that telehealth is the right thing to do, or that patients demand it, won’t be enough to resist the magnetic force drawing us back to in-person care, says Joe Kvedar, MD. “We need to come up with logical, financially sound reasons for providers to pivot long term.”
The problem with episodic care? “Clinicians are making a judgement about a patient’s health status based on cross-sectional data, which can be misleading.” Fortunately, it’s no longer the only viable option, according to Dr. John Halamka and Paul Cerrato.
The potential for quicker development timelines and IT crowdsourcing are two reasons why low-code software is gaining traction, according to David Chou. But it’s going to require something healthcare IT leaders aren’t always willing to do.
