Lessons learned from COVID-19: Optimizing patient engagement with cloud

In the wake of COVID-19, many healthcare providers that traditionally relied on physical office space had to quickly adapt their operations to meet regulatory guidelines and ensure the safety of their employees by shifting to remote work.  On top of these workforce restrictions, healthcare organizations of all types undoubtedly saw an increase in call volume and patient engagement due to the pandemic.

Without a physical office, corporate VPN, or standard equipment, many were faced with challenges and learning lessons when forced to turn to new methods of patient engagement, manage increased call volumes, and drive performance when operating with a remote workforce.

How claims and reimbursement data can fuel operational recovery

As the COVID-19 pandemic materialized and spread, it has changed so much about healthcare delivery, how we prepare, and how we go about our daily lives.  We are reminded how fragile our health and the healthcare system can be.  As an industry, healthcare has an opportunity to learn from this pandemic and improve our preparedness by having ready access to data that will help inform decisions about wealth, wellness and capacity.

As the COVID-19 fight continues, data driven decisions are vital for resource allocation, the move to digital care within telehealth, improved outcomes, disease prevention and cost containment. With better understanding of the most vulnerable populations in the U.S., care providers, public health experts and policy-makers can appropriate front-line resources and efforts where they are most needed - at the point of care for patients. It will also be critical as healthcare organizations recover from the pandemic to focus operational and financial priorities on places for growth by understanding unique market dynamics for specific service lines.
