Our mission in our digital health practice is to enable improved treatment, care and doctor-patient communication with unique self-service, remote care and telemedicine applications.
Healthcare's Impact on Global GDP
Healthcare is the single largest budget item, with a global average of almost 10% GDP and several western economies surpassing that. This far exceeds both education and military expenditures combined. Meanwhile, the public healthcare systems have trouble providing services efficiently. It is estimated that as much as $750 billion is wasted annually in the United States alone from an aging healthcare system. This provides huge opportunities for the industry to innovate with new digital services and products.
Connectivity is transforming how healthcare is delivered and coordinated. Applications that put customers in the center of the care management generate loyalty and increase the quality of treatment and patient engagement.
Digital transformation along with the Internet of Things and big data analytics, provides for a more intimate, connected healthcare. Here the patient experience can be full time, meaningful, more engaging and not reliant on in-person care. Mobility, wearables and big data offer personalized health empowerment from an extended care team. Real time connection offers customer-centric collaboration between the technology, care provision and medicine that can include everything from continuous monitoring and crisis intervention to remote medical services and self-service options.
Data and customer experience are the keys to new care models, since this is the connective tissue between clinicians, care teams and patients. We can now offer consumers and clinicians, with the tap of a finger, personal health records and put this in the context of a spectrum of health data and information gathered from the consumer - lifestyle, diagnosis, treatments, vitals, physical and mental well-being. This data can be accumulated through wearables, apps or devices that a consumer or patient is using, as well as data from imaging systems, medical records and patient monitors.
IdeoDigital - At the forefront of the Digital Health Revolution
We have been working on the creation of digital health platforms from the early days of web and mobile app development. Our digital solutions fully integrate with the providers back-end health records to create a single, standalone platform.
We focus on a few key issues in our health practice:
Self service: Our mobile systems ease the pain for providers as they give better services to their customers, who can manage akk aspects of appointments and folloeups, access clinical/patient health records, labs and data, prescription renewal and information.
Telemedicine: From caring for sickness to preventing illness through remote connections
PHR: personal health records - collecting all health data and making it accessible to the patient and the care providers
