Posted in Client News Coverage on Monday, March 18, 2019.

A single integrated ecosystem means we can finally optimize healthcare decisions and be proactive rather than waiting for the patient to knock on the doctor’s door. Unfortunately, forward momentum is not that simple with the steady rise in healthcare costs impacting the success of technology. Perhaps these rising costs have also served as a catalyst for notable increases in the number of Medicare Advantage (MA) enrollees between 2004 and 2017—tripling from 5.3 million to 19 million. The Congressional Budget Office projects MA enrollees to reach 37% of the population by 2020 and 42% of the population by 2028.

Hospitals face countless logistics, compliance, and safety hurdles every day. Expensive equipment goes missing or maintenance schedules delayed in searching for assets. Patients and visitors get lost trying to navigate a hospital’s corridors. Security personnel scramble to locate a clinical staff member who triggered a duress alert.
