Health Care Challenges Today

As an industry, health care is renowned for pioneering advanced treatments and technologies for treating diseases and caring for patients. Unfortunately, these innovations rarely fulfill their potential, hampered by a disconnected system relying upon outdated technology, isolated computer and communications systems, and inefficient record keeping. Additional challenges to consider include:

  • Health care is undergoing a foundational transformation from a delivery, payer and patient perspective
  • Health care is now expected to deliver high quality care with transparent outcomes
  • Providers, nurses / doctors / allied health professionals, want to spend meaningful time with patients delivering care
  • Wellness and longitudinal care will change the focus of health care from fee-for-service to accountable care
  • Health Information Technology is rapidly evolving and is transforming the landscape of care delivery
  • Patients and employers will expect more affordable and higher quality care
