Healthcare is in the midst of groundbreaking change, moving from a B2B model to a B2C model, and from physicians and administrators as the boss to patients as the boss. In every industry where consumers are empowered, there are winners and losers. Here is Prepared Health's founder and CEO Ashish Shah's top 10 list to get on the winning side.
Gloria Shields knows that some hospital networks have hundreds of providers to choose from when they discharge patients who need at-home care. As director of transitional care at Bowes In Home Care, she wants the Crystal Lake, Illinois home health agency to stand out in a crowded field.
Lillian Funk, co-owner of Assisting Hands, an in-home care provider in Ashburn, Virginia, believes in the power of family connections. “When the family is engaged, we can deliver better care and provide a better patient experience,” she says.
Visiting Nurse Association Health Group (VNAHG) logs 60 to 100 patient referrals a day, mostly from well-established hospital partners who want to pair newly discharged patients with home-based health services.
Marie Ruiz, case manager and lead assessment coordinator at Jefferson Health Care Center, is a fierce advocate for her patients. But she doesn’t always win.
This month, PreparedHealth won both the Judges' and Peoples' Choice awards at the inaugural MATTER Accenture Digital Health & Life Sciences Pitch Competition.
