In the year 2022, global health systems are facing harsh realities that include clinical exhaustion, helpless patients and caregivers, skyrocketing costs, too many barriers to accessing care and vastly inequitable health outcomes.
To remain sustainable, healthcare needs significant transformation. We need to find a way to achieve the Quintuple Aim: improving health outcomes and health equity, reducing healthcare costs and enhancing the patient and provider experience.
Extending traditional medicine by taking a digital first strategy that encompasses digital front door technology to enable people to self-manage their health and wellbeing will help to ease the total load on overburdened clinicians. This approach coupled with ensuring the right data is available for better decision-making will help to address these challenges and ultimately ensure patients receive the best care possible.
