American Healthcare: The Startups are Coming

American Healthcare: The Startups are Coming | Mobile Charge Capture - SwiftPayMD(TM) | Scoop.it
A look at how startups are attempting to disrupt the huge US healthcare industry.

 

A new crop of healthcare startups are leveraging low-cost, ubiquitous technologies such as Internet of Everything (IoE), big data, wearables, cloud computing, and mobile apps in an attempt to disrupt the multitrillion-dollar US healthcare sector – each chipping away at one small part of the gargantuan system. But with so many entrenched players, can startups create real change in the US healthcare industry?

 

The time may be right...


Venture capitalists are certainly betting healthcare startups will succeed financially. In 2013, venture capital firms invested $6.4 billion into 50 healthcare companies, and investment is expected to be even higher in 2014. One sub-sector of the healthcare investment space is “healthcare IT”, which includes only  those companies that leverage mobile, web, IoE, and other technologies to improve healthcare services. Venture funding in healthcare IT companies for 2014 reached $2.4 billion in the first six months of 2014, surpassing the $1.9 billion invested in that sector in all of 2013.

“It's big dollars going into healthcare IT, and I think it's going to be a long bull run." -Steve Kraus/Bessemer Venture Partners

...Another area where startups are gaining traction is in helping doctors provide better, more personalized care. Companies like HealthTap, which enables doctors to answer patients’ questions on the web and provide personalized care via a mobile app and video chats, provide doctors with the latest consumer technologies to connect with patients. ZocDoc helps doctors ‘get found’ by patients and provides immediate online appointment scheduling, while companies like PracticeFusion and drchrono enable physicians to manage medical records securely on the web and mobile. Iconic Data, with its SwiftPayMD mobile app, helps doctors submit billing codes in snap, while Doximity is a professional network for doctors – the “LinkedIn for physicians”...

How medical practices get paid more simply by documenting and capturing charges for work already being done | Healthcare Finance News

Let's forget about ICD-10 coding for a moment. Let's talk about how medical practices can make more money.

 

Think about all the stuff you do without charging for it. You toss out that receipt you could have submitted for reimbursement. You work late, but don't charge overtime. But imagine you were doing hundreds of things for free worth tens of thousands of dollars a month. Then you'd probably say...Wow! I need to be charging for these things that I'm already doing!

 

There's an urologist in South Carolina who figured it out:

 

Two years ago Larry Rabon decided to do things differently. He was going to find every code that he was missing, and bill for that." (via Marketplace)

 

This isn't exactly found money. He has to work for it. He has a medical billing team (his family) dedicated to staying on top of how to code every diagnosis and procedure that Rabon is legally entitled to submit for reimbursement...

Study predicts an active RCM market the next 24 months | @HFNewsTweet | @SwiftPayMD

BURLINGTON, VT – Last month, Capsite, a healthcare technology research and advisory firm, released their most recent study in a series of strategic industry reports focused on the revenue cycle management market, the 2012 U.S. Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) study.

The study included nearly 400 participants, such as CEOs, CFOs and IT directors, representing 360 U.S. hospital organizations of various sizes with the objective of assessing how the HITECH Act focus on stimulating the adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Health Information Exchange (HIE) solutions combined with the delay in the ICD-10 compliance deadline is impacting the RCM market.


Within the study, it was found that 21 percent of participants say they are planning to replace core RCM in the next 24 months, and for hospitals with more than 400 beds, that number increased to 36 percent. Fifty-three percent of the respondents said they plan to upgrade core RCM due to healthcare financial regulatory changes, with that number increasing to 68 percent for the hospitals with more than 400 beds.

5 Ways Mobile Apps Will Transform Healthcare - Forbes

5 Ways Mobile Apps Will Transform Healthcare - Forbes | Mobile Charge Capture - SwiftPayMD(TM) | Scoop.it

"Guest post written by Derek Newell Derek Newell is CEO of Jiff, which provides a HIPAA-compliant social network and apps platform for healthcare."

 

Earlier this year Kaiser Permanente leapfrogged the industry when it made its entire electronic health care system – the most extensive electronic medical record offering in the world – available to its 9 million members via an Android app. The country’s largest medical organization quickly announced that the app had garnered more than 95,000 downloads. Kaiser patients now make appointments, check lab tests, order medicines, and communicate with their physicians from the palm of their hands. CEO George Halvorson asserted that accessing health information on mobile devices is becoming the “new norm.”

 

The numbers support Halvorson’s prediction. Global sales of smartphones are expected to hit 1.5 billion units by 2016. Ten years from now everyone from teens to the elderly will be carrying a smartphone, and these mobile devices will be exponentially smarter than they are today. In addition to being location aware, the smartphone of the future will be situationally and contextually aware. This will allow it to present information directly to you when you need it, revolutionizing the way patients are engaged by the healthcare system.

 

These new capabilities coupled with the explosive growth in digital health apps – the market for mobile health apps is expected to quadruple to $400 million by 2016, according to ABI Research – promise to radically change the way health care is delivered and accessed. Doctors won’t go away, but they will have a lot more information about you and your health, and it will stream in from more sources than ever before. For healthcare delivery, we’re rapidly moving from a world of inbound patients to a world of inbound data. The impact of this shift on the healthcare system and how consumers use and act on health information should not be underestimated.

10 Tips for Maximizing Your Revenue Cycle on Executive Insight

10 Tips for Maximizing Your Revenue Cycle on Executive Insight | Mobile Charge Capture - SwiftPayMD(TM) | Scoop.it

In today's healthcare world, medical practices are facing an ever-changing landscape of policies and reforms that force them to adapt the way they manage their revenue cycle. With the recent 5010 transition and upcoming ICD-10 switch, declining Medicare reimbursements, and growing patient responsibility for payments, many providers are concerned about how they are going to get paid. Now, more than ever, healthcare organizations need to establish systems to ensure they are managing their revenue cycle efficiently.

 

Many providers have found that the integration of revenue cycle management technology has significantly improved their ability to collect more payments in a timely manner.  According to a LarsonAllen study on revenue cycle management technology, practices that are successful technology adopters consistently outperform their peers from a cost and revenue perspective.1  The study also showed that successful technology adopters collected more than half of outstanding receivables in 15 days or less, compared to only 9 percent by those who used technology less efficiently.

Why Tablets Will Become Our Primary Computing Device | Forrester Blogs

Why Tablets Will Become Our Primary Computing Device | Forrester Blogs | Mobile Charge Capture - SwiftPayMD(TM) | Scoop.it

Tablets aren’t the most powerful computing gadgets. But they are the most convenient.

 

They’re bigger than the tiny screen of a smartphone, even the big ones sporting nearly 5-inch screens.

 

They have longer battery life and always-on capabilities better than any PC — and will continue to be better at that than any ultrathin/book/Air laptop. That makes them very handy for carrying around and using frequently, casually, and intermittently even where there isn’t a flat surface or a chair on which to use a laptop. 

 

And tablets are very good for information consumption, an activity that many of us do a lot of. Content creation apps are appearing on tablets. They’ll get a lot better as developers get used to building for touch-first interfaces, taking advantage of voice input, and adding motion gestures.

 

They’re even better for sharing and working in groups. There’s no barrier of a vertical screen, no distracting keyboard clatter, and it just feels natural to pass over a tablet, like a piece of paper, compared to spinning around a laptop.

 

All these reasons add up to our prediction that tablets will become the preferred, primary device for millions of people around the world, which is in the just-published report “Tablets Will Rule The Future Personal Computing Landscape.”

Manhattan Associates reports runaway tablet adoption rates for US docs. 40% use a smartphone, computer, & tablet daily.

Smartphone adoption among physicians has started to level but there’s been an “explosion” of adoption in tablets, Manhattan Research’s VP of Research Monique Levy said during a recent webinar. Levy said that Manhattan’s survey of physicians in the US found that 62 percent now have some kind of tablet device, almost twice as many as last year.

 

“I still cannot believe some of this data. I had to double and triple check it because it is just astounding,” Levy said. The majority of these tablet toting doctors are iPad owners, but even among that group Levy was surprised to find that even they are planning to buy an additional tablet device in the next few months.

 

“We don’t know if this is a replacement device [or] an additional device,” Levy said, “but quite a few physicians already have more than one of these mid-sized devices — whether they are tablets or e-readers. We are starting to see that there are going to be all sorts of issues around multiple device management. Physicians will have both personal devices and institutional devices. A ‘multi-mid-size device world’ is not out of the question in the next 18 months.”

 

Levy said that you would think the runaway adoption rate for tablets among MDs might also mean adoption of eReaders would decline, but that was not the case. While it did eke up a bit, she said between eReaders and tablets there still hasn’t emerged a device that can take on the iPad for dominance.
