Healthcare IT systems are revolutionizing the way healthcare is delivered, providing powerful tools for healthcare professionals to deliver high-quality, human-first care. These systems are designed to put patients at the center of the treatment experience; they empower payers, providers, and all healthcare professionals to deliver holistic & people-powered care.
Overcoming the Gaps
The healthcare industry is constantly evolving, and with it, the need for more efficient and effective ways to deliver care. A few of the key challenges facing healthcare providers today are those of care gaps and coding gaps, both of which can have a significant impact on patient & treatment outcomes.
Care gaps are born through a lack of communication & coordination between treatment stakeholders—and they can have serious ramifications when overlooked. Such lacunae in patient care can result in poor patient outcomes, increased healthcare costs, and unnecessary hospital readmissions.
Coding gaps, on the other hand, reference an administrative oversight that can lead to latent difficulties in identifying true care gaps. Beyond that, coding gaps can also lead to problems with billing and reimbursement, as well as difficulty in identifying population health trends.
The Solution: People-Powered Systems
It’s clear that care professionals must find a way to overcome these gaps—but how? The answer lies at the core of healthcare & what treatment has always been about: humans helping humans.
Healthcare systems that centralize and integrate the patient lifecycle, such as electronic health record (EHR) systems, can play a critical role in addressing care & coding gaps. Since medical intelligence has been collectivized from end-to-end, each treatment stakeholder now has the visibility they need to act with confidence.
Our approach to better care
At Holon, we believe the key to optimizing patient care lies in harnessing the power of people. That’s why we created our people-centered healthcare solutions – to provide relief for the care teams that serve us all.
By leveraging specialized domain knowledge alongside innovative technologies such as machine learning, our systems enable healthcare teams to identify and address care gaps in real-time, ensuring that patients receive the best possible care.
This unlocks new levels of collaboration and coordination for healthcare teams. Horizontal transparency and data synchronization enable professionals to quickly identify emerging treatment challenges, and then work together to address them.
Furthermore, our platform also allows for fast, secure sharing of patient information—even between disconnected providers (in the case of referrals & specialists)—which can go a long way in ensuring that patients receive the right care at the right time.
Empowering Healthcare Payers
The impact of our human-centered solutions also extends into the realm of insurance, empowering payers to supercharge their organizations with the help of a powerful digital toolbox.
Improved Data Management & Analysis
One of the core payer-benefits brought on by implementing a unified healthcare system is the ability to capture & analyze large amounts of patient data—with unprecedented speed & security.
This newfound scale for data management enables payers to identify deep patterns and trends in patient activity that would otherwise go unseen; those insights can further inform far-reaching decisions that directly add massive value to the patient experience. From extended coverage, claim reimbursement, to proactive risk management, the possibilities are truly endless.
Simply by collectivizing access to all patient-related information, insurance payers can get ahead of latent issues, and even implement targeted interventions to improve widespread health outcomes at the population level.
Streamlined claims processing
Another key benefit of a healthcare IT system for insurance payers is the ability to automate many of the manual processes involved in claims processing. This typically involves rote and mundane activities, such as data entry, verification, and coding.
Automating these processes can not only help to reduce errors and delays in the claim cycle, but further improve the speed and costs associated with processing those claims, as well. By streamlining the patient experience at every step, healthcare IT systems can help insurance payers generate meaningful value—both for internal stakeholders as well as patients.
Why the time for human-healthcare is now
The healthcare industry is at a crossroads. With new technologies & innovative thinking, we have the opportunity to overcome systemic challenges facing healthcare today and leave a better future for patients, healthcare professionals, and payers alike.
Through a people-powered approach to healthcare, we at Holon believe that the full potential of healthcare can be realized. It is our vision to build a universal wealth of intelligence that empowers healthcare teams to deliver the best possible care to patients by centralizing patient data and integrating it with human-centered design – because healthcare should feel human.
