What’s Trending In Healthcare

Healthcare changes as time goes on. There are various trends happening right now. According to predictions by those in the industry, these current trends include:

New Business Models

Healthcare professionals have a range of options when it comes to how they interact with one another. This is thanks to cloud, mobile, social and analytic tools. This means when they create effective business models, then they should consider the different ways they can communicate because some ways may enhance customer service and generate additional revenue.

Demand for Price Transparency

Thanks to newly introduced health care exchanges, the demand for price transparency continues to grow at a rapid pace. This means health care organizations must prioritize transparency, especially when it comes to negotiations with plans and health providers.

This may lead to companies reevaluating their business models and roles. One of the things companies can do is acquire providers and there are even some providers that are venturing into the insurance business. A company may also find themselves launching other start-ups in areas that require them to be experienced with various things in order to find out which one works the most for them.

Employers are also looking to hire a workforce that is digitally savvy. This is one that can leverage technology when communicating and engaging with patients.

More employers are also looking at the potential of private exchanges. Drug makers appear to be embracing alternative clinical trial designs. They seem to be focusing on offering specialty products.

Are you thinking about becoming a health care provider? Do you have expertise or want to acquire the expertise to enhance and enrich your career?

    “Employers are also looking to hire a workforce that is digitally savvy. This is one that can leverage technology when communicating and engaging with patients.” What I think that, if you know more digital or web technology, no matter which opportunity, you might have more chances to land the interview.

    I have no qualms in health care going digital. Let us just hope that doctors do not forget the most important element of it being human.

    • Eleanor says:

      I agree. With all the business and pricing hoopla behind the scenes, the most important value has to always be put on the patient – else the system will just become corrupt, untrustworthy and eventually fail the very people it was designed to serve.

  3. Miaka Yuuki says:

    With all these trends in Health care Affordability is a key component. Health care is about people no matter how advance we get technology wise.

    I think it’s good that they are trying to keep up with technology and new ways of making business. I hope this means work will be done more efficiently and faster, so professionals can focus on their patiens, who are the only reason they exist.

    Being that I have spent more time in hospitals in doctor’s offices lately, I can certainly see how technology has affected the way that health care is run now. And yet, it is also important to understand that knowing how to use certain instruments does not outshine the fact that you must first and foremost be familiar with aspects of health care.

    Good to read about the improvements on health care due to technology. Been in and out of hospitals for the last few years due to my father’s illness so I’ve come to appreciate good service when it comes to health.

    “This means when they create effective business models, then they should consider the different ways they can communicate because some ways may enhance customer service and generate additional revenue.” What I think that, digital technology brings different methods of communication, it causes people to communicate to different location efficiently.

  9. Genesis says:

    For me, patient’s welfare should always be on top of the things that should be considered in developing healthcare business models. These technology adaptation, or medical break through’s will be useless if patient’s can’t afford them.

  10. Jinel Cooper says:

    I don’t know about all this emphasis on digital communication. Outside of being able to access test results and such, I’m finding that too much is being left to computers and not enough to actual people. This over automated way of living is making us callous to human suffering. What ever happened to just going and checking in on a person rather than conversing via a computer screen? Its pretty easy to say “I’m fine” when one look at the person would tell you that they are not If you ask me, there should be more emphasis on finding people with compassion and a strong work ethic than someone who can confidently use Twitter and Facebook.
