What can healthcare learn from the history of e-commerce? | Australian e-health | Scoop.it

The health sector is a fascinating study in contrasts. Consider our well-funded private city hospitals that deliver the best emergency healthcare money can buy. Then ponder why smaller suburban, regional or remote clinics can only dream of such services.

Key technologies driving healthcare

Key technologies driving healthcare | Australian e-health | Scoop.it
We are witnessing a shift in the health sector to the seamless provision of healthcare. Many elements are coming together, such as more cost-efficient care delivery, intelligent analysis of patient information, more price-conscious and scalable software delivery models, and new methods of interaction between individuals and caregivers using mobile devices and social media in a way that has not been known before.

 

This is changing the fabric of healthcare and leading to a paradigm shift – it is no longer just about healing the sick. With more information becoming available, it is now also about prevention. More fundamentally, healthcare is moving from episodic, isolated patient care towards electronic health record-centric or patient-centred care, where the entire continuum of care is not just involved but also accountable for the patient outcome. To this end, healthcare is increasingly using intelligent tools to obtain smarter clinical information to improve patient outcomes.

Modernizing the Hospital Patient Experience

Modernizing the Hospital Patient Experience | Australian e-health | Scoop.it

I wrote a Book about in 2001 called, “Confessions of a Professional Hospital Patient,” because there was so much wrong with the “hospital patient experience” I felt there was a story to be told which could shed some light on significant but subtle problems almost every person in the world would someday experience since everyone gets sick and most people don’t get through life without an adult hospital stay or two. Thankfully, my Book was critically acclaimed and it continues to sell as “the most accurate and honest depiction of the ‘hospital patient experience’” but to make sure Ms. Boehm’s aim was as true as Elvis Costello’s, I had a few questions for her about Experia and their hospital patient experience venture.
