There is so much happening in healthcare right now. Each day seems to bring new innovations that we believe are timely and newsworthy. Our goal for this newsletter is to provide the latest news around interoperability, the adoption of blockchain in healthcare, and trends that are important to healthcare leaders and innovators throughout our industry—like you.
A Welcome Note from the CEO
It’s been about a year since I stepped into the role of CEO at Avaneer Health. During this time, I’ve had dozens of conversations with payers, providers, and innovators across the country. These discussions are always insightful and energizing; it’s encouraging to see their passion for improving the healthcare experience. One trend I’ve noticed is that organizations are investing in digital transformation and interoperability to create a positive experience, achieve better outcomes, and manage the cost of care. Most all of them are focused, like Avaneer is built to enable, on really improving healthcare for humans…better billing experiences, better access, more timely care, financial assistance, care management, etc. It is so exciting to see the focus on the patients at such a high level!
Despite the progress, our industry is still challenged to exchange data efficiently and effectively. There have been gains in interoperability, especially in clinical data exchange. But healthcare organizations continue to be challenged by costly point-to-point API connections and administrative complexity. Many innovative companies struggle to quickly unlock the value for their clients due to time-consuming delays in scheduling and completing one-to-one client data integration projects.
Achieving interoperability requires payers, providers, and other stakeholders to come together and collaborate. By connecting once to a secure national healthcare network, participants are connecting to many other participants to seamlessly access the data needed for administrative and clinical functions. This efficient approach lowers administrative costs required for exchanging data while expediting and streamlining care experiences.
It’s time for healthcare to collaborate on how we can work together better – and finally create the healthcare experiences we all want.
