The integration of healthcare: Moving beyond healthcare technology innovation to integration
Healthcare technology has been almost singularly focused on innovation for the past decade. From that innovation, an unparalleled opportunity has evolved to leverage the mass amounts of clinically-relevant data patients are generating. To be able to utilize this data effectively and efficiently in the context of care, healthcare technology must shift from a focus on innovation to a focus on integration.
These now ubiquitous data need to be integrated into our existing clinical workflow to appropriately impact care delivery and management. Integrating the needed data infrastructure with the aligned clinical workflows enables care teams to not only meet MACRA and MIPS requirements, but also places emphasis on the shift to value-based care.
