Staying on top of digital and practical trends in healthcare has never been more important. As technology infiltrates our industry and consumers speak up on how they prefer to engage with their medical upkeep, innovative devices and approaches are continually introduced and disrupting the transactional system to which we have been so accustomed.
This year’s Healthcare Transformation Summit brought new insights, analyses and ways to apply evolving innovation into the daily routines of physicians, practices, hospitals, and clinics.
The summit also welcomed entrepreneurs, industry experts, vendors, and suppliers to set the stage for what will be a collaborative healthcare system going forward. Exhibitors and attendees dove into strategic insights for generating new growth and revenue; they discussed how to foster and nourish partnerships amongst the industry; how to implement comprehensive delivery care models that are accessible to patients worldwide; and they revealed the healthcare trends that would not only be present in the upcoming years, but that would also be creating new opportunities in the marketplace.
If you didn’t make it to the conference this year, read below for some of the insights extracted from the weekend.
Healthcare Transformation Summit 2018 Highlights:
Working with patients before they walk in
How is this possible, to work with patients before they walk in, right? It’s simple. Patients are almost always online, and they almost always have access to their smart, mobile devices. By creating online patient portals with dual access by physicians and patients, patient care is monitored so that trends can be observed and ailments can be predicted and avoided. When a patient walks through practice doors, diagnosis is either swiftly drawn or remedies can be discussed immediately.
Headed toward consumerism and requiring emphasis on value
Healthcare has become a consumer market. We have moved beyond the transnational experience of patient and physician and pharmacist, and we now participate in a complex, robust system with many moving pieces and players. Consumers expect more from you than they expect from their consumer brands: they want their needs met and their lives saved, all the time. All collaborators in the industry are finding ways to bring value to the consumer (the patient) while also finding ways to accommodate budgets and values of industry partners. How can you work together with your suppliers, vendors, and other outsourced parties to improve your practice, their businesses and provide a better experience for the patient?
Artificial intelligence is here, but so are we
Artificial intelligence is not a technological advancement that can be overlooked or pushed aside. It has arrived and eventually, it will be a fixed part of medicine. However, the healthcare industry is not to surrender their own intelligence and creative, medical minds to robotic systems. Instead, all healthcare parties must learn to work with artificial intelligence and collaborate with robotic insights to provide patients the best possible care.
Disruptive innovation applies to everyone
Everyone in the healthcare industry – from surgery to suppliers to insurance – can benefit from technological innovation and more than that, they need to start working on introducing disruptive measures in their practice. Practices should consider the new ways to collect data, how to have it best analyzed and what to do with the key insights that emerge.
