Healthcare Management Systems to ensure care is coordinated


Aspects we expect to see more of in a low-cost system:


I Mobile first – phone or web I Asset light I Team based working with new roles I Centralized specialist work I Networked providers I Use mobile care and telemedicine I Patient focused, primary care based I Coordination between providers I Hybrid public and private models I Community involvement in the design of services I Devolved and high quality management I Information technology as a backbone of the system I Encourage transparency I Tackle corruption


Healthcare systems produce huge amounts of waste as a result of duplication of effort, failure to apply best practices or follow-up with patients. The use of patient pathways that include the patient’s journey through the system and ensure coordination improves outcomes and reduces waste.


An integrated information technology platform


Coordinated care requires information to be shared between providers and used in predictive models to identify patients at risk.


Chains or networks of providers


A promising approach is the vertical or virtual integration of providers through improved coordination, standard operating procedures and strategic business planning contributing to significantly better outcomes and lower costs.
