TRANSFORMING HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
Achieving Better Outcomes and Affordability
Taking the patients' perspective and putting their needs at the center sets the stage for a shift in health care delivery and even a redefinition of what falls under the purview of health care. Physicians and other clinicians will have to embrace new ways of working together, integrating the role of technology and teamwork in delivering multidisciplinary, data-informed care. Technology partners play a key role in supporting and innovating to improve access to effective, affordable care. Working cooperatively with patients on their needs, preferences and goals will result in a health care system that can deliver affordable care and optimal outcomes for patients' evolving needs.
The American Hospital Association invited hospital administrators and health care leaders to this event sponsored by Siemens Healthineers to learn innovative strategies and technologies that put patients at the center, break down barriers and bring care closer to home. The following coverage of the event has been excerpted and edited for clarity.
