As we like to do every year, we reached out to our experts and thought leaders to see what they believe we will see this year in healthcare and health IT. Here are the posts we published throughout December, in case you missed them. Happy New Year!
The Continuing Quest for Interoperability in 2022
On our recent annual interoperability panel discussion with industry leaders, they were posed the question of where are we? If we were a football field how close are we to the goal? Of course everyone wants to put us somewhere making progress right? We are half way there, because everyone knows we are not close and certainly not on the 2 with a a quarterback hurdling the line for the goal! But the most interesting answer (and probably most honest), we haven’t entered the stadium yet! Hopefully we are at least taking tickets. So our quest for interoperability continues.
Care Delivery Remotely in 2022
As predicted 2021 saw the explosion of telehealth visits as the pandemic and lock downs were happening. Telehealth was on top of everyone’s priority list. But it also ushered in a wider definition to care delivery. Remote care doesn’t just mean or include video visits. Remote care and monitoring are care delivery models that can’t be overlooked in the future.
Will Patients be Giving a Thumbs Up on their Experiences in 2022?
Patient Experience is not just a buzz phrase. It is a major driver of health IT innovation. The healthcare industry to say the least is doing a little catch up to other industries when it comes to how their customers or patients interact with their entities. Gen Z or iGen are now entering their 20s and will start graduating from college and entering the workforce. This generation has never been without a personal computer or even a smart phone. Their banking, retail, and communication is all digital, it always has been. How will patient experience shape our 2022?
Digital Transformation in 2022
Digital Health is using technology to help improve people’s health and wellness. Our healthcare industry has been digitally transforming for decades now. But the sheer volume of data we are collecting now is driving innovation that can be called revolutionary or evolutionary. And there is nothing stopping it continuing into next year.
Equitable Health in Populations is Well Overdue in 2022
Like many other areas of healthcare, the pandemic has shown us what the wizard behind the curtain really is. And it hasn’t been pretty. To right the ship with the goals of a truly healthy population, health equity must be addressed in the forefront. These health IT experts aren’t just predicting this but insisting it.
