Delivering care outside the hospital offers providers an exceptional opportunity to improve patient outcomes and enhance the patient experience. Hospitals that expand into home healthcare, for example, can reach more patients with better care while tapping into a profitable new revenue stream. For many providers, however, home health services are not producing the outcomes they expected. And theres a simple reason why; Home healthcare is complex.
With so many moving parts, delivering care outside the hospital walls requires careful coordination and efficient resource allocation. Thankfully, new technologies are making mobile care delivery easier than ever. Home health services in particular and the field service sector in general, can greatly benefit from advanced technologies. But theres a catch! To extract the full power of these technologies and provide the highest level of care, providers must empower their remote care workers with a foundational level of access to EHR data.
Connected data is essential for effective care delivery outside the hospital walls. To get the insights and information they need to be successful, field care teams must be able to easily access and exchange data across multiple systems and devices.
Whats possible with connected data and improved interoperability? Here are nine things you can do to optimize home healthcare outcomes:
At Microsoft, we developed the new Healthcare Accelerator solution to help providers unleash the full power of their patient data. The Microsoft Dynamics 365 Healthcare Accelerator connects your hospitals EHR data while enabling systems and applications to help you optimize the remote delivery of care in the field. Without a connected data system, home health providers are left vulnerable to a larger margin of error and a lack of informed decision-making.
When your data is connected, you can better leverage digital technologies to elevate home health services. For example, you can:
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Healthcare Accelerator in conjunction with the Microsoft Cloud, creates the interoperability you need to improve clinical care outcomes and drive more revenue.
Explore our new eBook, Reimagining healthcare with Microsoft, to understand how unlocking interoperability can help you reduce costs, increase revenue, and manage risk to improve patient outcomes dramatically.
