What do you think needs to be done to reform healthcare in the U.S.?
With chronic diseases accounting for $3 of every $4 spent on healthcare, the U.S. healthcare system needs to shift from episodic care to team-based patient engagement and care coordination. This trend will improve care quality and outcomes, as well as reduce costs. Mobility is critical to accelerating this transformation.
Technological advances and adoption of mobile devices represent a significant opportunity for the healthcare community to empower and activate patients. However, healthcare organizations will need to overcome many challenges, including security issues, regulation and standards, and rapidly changing and fragmented mobile environments.
