Population health management: connecting for care

Dear Sir or Madam,

Data protection, lack of interoperability, no exchange between care providers: that are some of the reasons why data silos still dominate many healthcare systems. But a lot of things things would be smoother, if physicians, hospitals and therapists would be able to communicate easier with each other and with patients. Read more about the advantages a common platform holds in our current interview.

Enjoy reading!

Data silos still prevail in the German health care system: providers store and collect patient data for their own purposes, making it not available to the entire organization. Many still mainly share this data in analog form. Comprehensive, integrated delivery networks would make many practices easier. Patients must also be more closely engaged in digital processes via a common platform to improve activities.
