Back in May I wrote about the Care Management System being the next big purchase for healthcare in the same trend as PM/HIS, EHR, and now a care management system. The biggest feature of the care management system is that it would have the patient at the center. The more I talk with people, the more I think this vision of a patient centered platform is the future of healthcare.
- Behavior Change
- Ease of Use for Providers
- HIPAA Compliant
He also outlined the 10 capabilities of a Care Management system:
- Patient Data Intake
- User and Role Management
- Targeting Analytics
- Program Development
- Program Administration
- Response Analytics
- Survey Analytics and Alerts Management
- Rewards Management
- Care Manager Dashboard and Workflow Tool
- Backward Integration of patient-generated data
I think these lists might complicate things a little bit when trying to communicate what the care management system should accomplish. However, I love that people like Sandeep are thinking deeply about what they’re working to accomplish. Plus, I’m really happy he’s sharing these perspectives with the world so that we can all work to refine them and make healthcare better.
What do you think of the concept of a care management system? How about the way Sandeep has laid it out? What would a patient centered platform look like to you?
