As digital health technologies enable changes in how and where care is delivered, hospitals and health systems must evaluate their strategic direction. A new AHA Center for Health Innovation report — “Digital Transformation: Anywhere Care” — offers insights and analysis about the three shifts made possible by this trend and provides key strategy considerations for provider organizations.
The report examines the moves to more convenient care anywhere and anytime, moving from digital to smart data and information and how to effectively manage social determinants of health. Key response considerations for each shift are provided as well as examples of what leading health care organizations are doing to address such issues as extending care beyond the hospital to address some of the root causes of poor health.
EY, which co-authored the report, provides a framework to develop a platform that supports participatory health by giving people the right tools to manage their health, lifestyle choices and chronic conditions in vastly different ways.
