Our health information is mostly inaccessible and uncoordinated. This severely reduces our ability to coordinate care around patients, leading to high costs and poor, often deadly outcomes.
We believe that improved information flow is a core requirement to delivering better care coordination and measurably better outcomes. We need an open architecture to enable better flow of information when and where it's needed.
We are in the middle of a fundamental shift in health care driven by new reimbursement models, new technologies, and new government mandates that will change how care is organized. These changes will require a shift in care delivery models from solution shops to value networks, requiring new architectures that support interactions across technology, business and care delivery platforms - tied to the commitment to service mankind.
We have developed a new platform architecture enabling coordinated and accountable care through collaboration, standards development, education and research across traditional institutional boundaries. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, mHealth is "the use of mobile and wireless devices to improve health outcomes, healthcare services, and health research." mHealth includes gamification, text messaging, telemedicine/telehealth (remote patient monitoring), electronic health records, and health applications, to name a few.
One of the biggest issues is that we're currently attempting to create two universes - and they're not parallel! One is the plethora of mobile health apps with no real clinical data (usually), and the second is the health information exchange space (HIE; which is struggling). People will quickly give up an app if there is no access to real data, and it relies heavily on their own input. At the same time, the HIEs are for the most part struggling with business plans, and a small minority are only starting to think about engaging patients/consumers/families. What is needed is for the HIE world to grasp the opportunity to transform from the inside out, using mHealth, social media and gaming functionality, and consumer-mediated exchange all rolled into one.
An open architecture that enables software components to be shared and reused will allow innovators to develop new, better applications that are complementary - making the role of each application more important and the overall impact of connected interventions that much stronger. Without this modular infrastructure, the lack of interoperability of apps and devices will continue to stifle the scaling and impact of mHealth.
