2017 Trends: Mobile Demand Creates Connectivity Challenges

We will continue to explore the top 5 healthcare provider trends for 2017. My previous posts in this blog series highlighted our first two trends: Handing the Patient Portal Reins to the Patient and Connecting the Patient to Connected Health. In our third trend we will look at how the increased demand for mobile will create connectivity challenges.

Healthcare organizations are beginning to realize that enabling consumer engagement and population health strategies are not possible unless the capability of effectively and efficiently communicating across care venues and systems exists as well. This calls upon Connected Health and Interoperability solutions to work together in new, mission critical, ways.

This is a big ask considering the increasingly complex care continuum that matches patient to care provider. At the same time, in this time of mobile health and the internet of things, we must also consider the balance between greater data access versus greater data security. Explore this trend in further detail, and match your current state to the state this trend requires, in our top 5 healthcare provider trends for 2017 guide.
