The widespread adoption of health IT in the last 10 years has transformed the way healthcare organizations and clinicians deliver care. Countless technologies now exist to help patients and providers better monitor and manage health information. Electronic health records (EHRs), medical and mobile devices, health-related apps, patient portals, secure email and telemedicine all contribute to a higher level of convenience and improved information access.
With the help of these and other IT tools, patients and caregivers can now become better educated and more involved in the healthcare decision-making process, ultimately leading to improved patient satisfaction and better patient care. But to truly leverage these tools to improve care across the continuum for population health initiatives, a redesign of care delivery must occur.
In our recent webinar, “Creating Value by Redesigning Care Delivery,” Dr. Sanjay Doddamani, MD, FACP, and Chief Medical Officer of Geisinger Health System’s Keystone ACO, highlighted how his organization has approached care delivery to improve outcomes.
