Ankota Co-Founder, Ken Accardi, was recently interviewed by PracticeSuite.com about his thoughts on the future of healthcare and how technology can play a part. The full article, entitled, Expert Interview with Ken Accardi About Healthcare Technology , can be found by clicking the link.
To get you started though, here are a couple of excerpts from the interview:
"Ultimately, healthcare technology will be the key to improving outcomes and reducing costs. Shared health records and care coordination technologies will reduce hospitalizations, reduce costs for redundant labs and diagnostics, and will enable focused and less expensive care to be delivered to the 5% of the population that account for half of healthcare costs."
"The biggest opportunity that we have to improve care and lower costs is to focus on the 5% of patients who consume close to 50% of the healthcare spend. This requires a trained expert (ideally a nurse case manager) to oversee the care of a group of patients."
