In the current Healthcare regulatory environment, the development of an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) and Mobile Health Solutions is paramount to achieving a patient centered strategy and understanding how to enable this strategy will be a key differentiator. Mobility creates the ability for the provider to obtain patient information anytime, anywhere, allowing the provider to get a better picture of the patient, and creates a better opportunity to have a transparent practice.
Hospitals are embracing population health and, in doing so, need to be able to more proactively manage populations of chronically ill patients in an effort to reduce unnecessary ED visits, reduce length of stay, and reduce re-admissions. Hospitals need to have a one-year plan showing that ROI is tied to outcomes, and mobility can help create that ROI.
This survey will allow SAP to better tailor our solutions and invest correctly on providing safe, efficient solutions that will help providers manage outcomes. It will also allow for SAP to better partner with providers in establishing solutions that directly impact patient safety, patient care, and satisfaction. Survey participants will receive a free white paper outlining the value of moving towards an ACO and Mobile Health Strategy and provide insights on how the association/provider can move forward in enacting these strategies to take advantages of their benefits.
Take advantage of SAP’s free ACO benchmarking survey to learn how your peers are approaching this strategy and see where your organization fits in its adoption.
