Healthcare is by its nature a collaborative enterprise. We can group these collaborations into three groups: between patient and doctor, between hospital staff, and between a hospital and the surrounding health system. Effective population management across the continuum of care cannot be achieved without a tightly coordinated set of interactions between each of these parties, yet as PWC’s study shows, inefficiencies persist at each point of interaction leading to increased healthcare spending and adversely affecting patient outcomes.
In this whitepaper, key healthcare initiatives and corresponding integration challenges are summarized.
