The challenges facing healthcare organizations continue to grow with the Quadruple Aim standards established by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). Balancing improved patient experiences and outcomes with reduced costs, and now the employee experience, is no easy task. However, by optimizing and modernizing systems, Quadruple Aim goals are within reach. Here’s how healthcare practices can provide more proactive, personalized care.
Fulfill Quadruple Aim Priorities with Cloud ERP
More healthcare organizations are relying on cloud ERP as a solid foundation upon which to deliver more personalized patient services, streamline operations and improve patient outcomes. As discussed in Personalize, Optimize and Modernize: A Framework to Build A Value-Based Healthcare Organization, 75% of provider organizations have either adopted or are planning to adopt value-based care in the future. Technology plays a key role in developing a value-based healthcare model and in fulfilling Quadruple Aim priorities.
Aging legacy systems have become outdated in this modern, digital era. Inefficient systems are hampering the ability of healthcare organizations to provide exceptional patient services and ensure positive patient outcomes. Today, access to current, reliable data is nothing short of essential and cloud-based ERP is at the heart of it all. In order to measure and track the foundational outcomes of the Quadruple Aim standard, healthcare organizations must modernize their management systems.
3 Advantages of Integrated Healthcare Technology
- Strengthen patient relationships: Patient expectations are shifting and many expect to see the same level of technology being used by healthcare providers as they use themselves. In addition, patients expect to receive tailored care, faster responses and strong follow-up services. Strengthening these relationships will maximize positive health outcomes, empower patients to take a more active role with their care, and lead to better outcomes. By centralizing patient data, resources and treatment information in a single, integrated management solution, providers will be able to provide the level of care that is expected by patients today.
- Streamline operations:Disparate management systems create silos of data and breed inefficient processes. Not only does this waste valuable time, it impedes patient services. Integrating accounting, EMR, inventory and HRM systems provides a single source of reliable data your workforce can use to streamline and improve patient services and operations. With data and materials readily available, your workforce will decrease patient wait times, reduce materials waste, simplify administrative processes and collaboratively engage with patients.
- Keep up with digital healthcare advances: There is a digital revolution taking place in the healthcare industry and providers must be able to keep up with the pace of change. Take advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) by connecting and managing machine-generated data from health devices, coordinate with other providers to improve patient outcomes, and strengthen security through HIPAA HITECH compliant technology. From automated billing to patient self-serve tools, you can protect patient and business data with encryption procedures, security strategies and other measures designed to support health care compliance.
