Learning from the Past:
When I was a child, my mom took me to get a bank account. I had a paper "pass book" for my savings account, and when I got some money or needed some money, I would go to the bank to deposit or withdraw it. Today I can make deposit checks from my cell phone, withdraw money in any currency at any ATM around the world and pay my bills from my computer. Healthcare is postured for a similar transformation...
Transforming Healthcare: Better Outcomes and Lower Cost
Ankota's core belief is that every avoided hospitalization is a win. Hospitalizations are the most expensive form of care. They require patients to travel to an uncomfortable environment with increased chance of infections and to leave behind their comfortable surroundings. Five percent of the population accounts for close to half of the health care costs in the US and many hospitalizations can be avoided by making sure that patients fill their prescriptions, take their meds, receive rehabilitative therapies and are safe, comfortable and well nourished in their home. Focusing on the 5% will increase quality of life, reduce health care costs, and create jobs.
