50 Most Promising Healthcare Solution Providers - 2015

Healthcare is in the middle of a transformation--a transformation driven by technology. The emerging trends from wireless sensor technology and remote patient monitoring to Big Data analytics and electronic patient portals are redefining where and how healthcare is being delivered.

For the healthcare providers who are still resistant to technology, there is a big problem hand: They are going to be left behind in the competition. In this technology "revolution", the major part is played by Electronic Health Records, which is facilitating the seamless flow of data. The goal is for doctors, nurses, patients, researchers, and insurers to share useful medical data for enhanced care delivery. Another catylyst in this revolution is the ever-increasing ubiquity of mobile and cloud platforms that allow providers to track in real-time a patient’s health. These platforms capture the data from disparate sources such as wearables, phones and glucometers, and pulls it all together to give a patient and caregiver a holistic and real-time view of the patient's health.

A recent report from Accenture also points to a new trend on the rise—the emergence of machines. It's all about 'digital self scheduling'— sharing patient's own EMRs, and connecting with physicians via social platforms. According to the study, 66 percent of health systems in the U.S. will have self-scheduling by the start of 2020. And nearly half of health execs strongly agree that within three years, they'll need to focus on training machines just as much as training employees.

As more healthcare organizations invest in these technologies and system capabilities, they’re seeing positive results. The implications for privacy are numerous and worrisome, but so are the consequences of not seizing this opportunity to save lives and improve quality of life.
