AUSTIN, TX, August 1, 2022 — (ACN Newswire) — What role and purpose will corporations play in influencing the social contract, and how could empowering consumers and providers transform healthcare business models using technology?
Partners in Digital Health’s blockchain portfolio in healthcare and telemedicine reflects and sets trends in the market. Here are a few trends and hot topics to think about.
Cost, location and preference have prioritized home care and care transitions as the aging population and a looming health workforce shortage impact the US healthcare system, where virtual care offers an opportunity to make the system more resilient over the long term.
The adoption of a zero-trust architecture to improve security in government and business must be adopted quickly, according to the Executive Order for Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity (EO 14208). If you’ve been hacked recently, you understand the urgency.
For safe use, a fully realized 3D digital world (Web3/Metaverse) must be created, creating virtual holographic experiences, including digital twins working in real time. Healthcare is at the forefront with medical education initiatives and holoportation. Ambient AI, or real-time human perception technology that enables intelligent environments, is an area where technology can anticipate and respond to people’s needs, adjust and predict behaviors across the care continuum—and reduce the cost of care. The compliant AI-powered conversation of patient intake can also increase the time and quality of time spent engaging with patients.
Diversity and inclusion offer new market opportunities for drug discovery, startups, apps, payment models, cross-border collaborations, market investments and more. Pandemics teach us that there are significant differences in patient populations with sexual, cultural, age and geographic differences that need to be considered.
The cash economy in healthcare is on the rise. A healthcare revolution is taking place in retail, with employers giving employees cash instead of health insurance. Consumers pay cash for medicines and services cheaper than those covered by insurance – and participants don’t have to grapple with system bureaucracy.
Price transparency for the health insurance market Plans to make hospital prices transparent for patients so they can compare the cost of care are welcomed by 85% of Americans. Consumers believe that reducing costs and improving quality through transparency should be a priority. Location-neutral payments are another way to level the playing field and could save the US up to $350 billion over the next decade.
Cryptography and application of quantum mechanics for unbreakable code so two parties can interact securely. The US is losing its competitive advantage and may have already done so.
Blockchain will enhance public interaction with government services and have far-reaching economic and social impacts. Global health passports and interoperable approved global networks are examples and just the beginning of the wave affecting healthcare.
