For years, the health system has grappled with a daunting challenge: how to effectively identify, engage
MINNEAPOLIS, August 3, 2020 — New research has shed light on a longstanding healthcare system challenge that affects more than 1 in 3 Americans: Health outcomes are not improving for those with complex, chronic health concerns, even though they see their doctor frequently and take multiple medications.
The way that healthcare is accessed and delivered is in the spotlight. Thanks to technology -- and our recent, collective experiences with stay-at-home orders and social distancing-- healthcare as we know it now extends far beyond the walls of a doctor’s office or hospital. As a nation, stresses on our healthcare system have required us to take a critical eye to how people receive the care they need. But for some people, improving their health isn’t necessarily a question of access.
Chronic medical conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and mental health affect more people than ever before – despite medical advances and readily available technology that can help. What’s needed to tackle such a large public health challenge? Population Health News recently featured insights from our CEO, Chris Cronin, on how data and predictive analytics, combined with personalized guidance, can improve outcomes.
At the core of healthcare is human connection. Whether in-person or virtual, mental or physical, chronic or urgent, good health guidance is facilitated by the trust and personal attention between patient and provider. And although it might have seemed counterintuitive just a few months ago, telehealth is a great enabler of this one-to-one connection – if we use it wisely.
MOBE’s unparalleled approach shows improved outcomes and reduced costs for Americans with persistent health care needs.
“Navigating the health care system and being healthy in general can be complicated and disconnected,” said MOBE co-founder Eric Hamborg. “Even with more access to information, specialized medicine, and technology, we’re not always healthier. Horizon recognizes all of these factors and sees the value of how MOBE can help.”
Medical experts agree: better engagement with personal health decisions can have a significant impact on health outcomes, while also reducing catastrophic health events and preventable hospital readmissions. But patient engagement isn’t always that straightforward. One of the biggest culprits – for both preventable hospital admission and readmission is medication discrepancy. Medication discrepancy is the mismanagement of medication or complications that stem from medication use that isn’t optimized and patients who are not engaged in their treatment plans.
