That last item, especially, can make a big impact. So much of a patient’s experience – good or bad – comes down to how smoothly and efficiently their information can be shared. And while a truly universal, nationwide network for sharing healthcare information (a la the banking system) may still be well down the road, healthcare organizations can begin taking steps now to improve communications with patients, payers and other providers. Many of today’s electronic health record systems (EHRs) and analytics solutions have the ability and flexibility to share data with a multitude of systems. Indeed, they can go a long way toward not just improving patient experience in the here and now, but also preparing your organization for the future of healthcare.
