Hosted by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and HLTH, ViVE 2023 took place on March 29-31 in Nashville. The conference united healthcare leaders to discuss advancements and trends across the healthcare industry. A few recurring topics made up the bulk of the conversation at ViVE this year, with interoperability once again being a focal point. While interoperability has been a recent point of emphasis and continues to progress every year, it remains clear to our healthcare leaders that there is a long way to go before patient data is universally shared between any provider at any time.
Another trending topic of conversation was artificial intelligence. As artificial intelligence sweeps the nation and is being implemented across several industries, it’s no surprise that a recurring question during ViVE panels was “How can we make it work for healthcare?” While there is promise in terms of its utility in healthcare, there is a lot of uncertainty on how it will be deployed. Artificial intelligence in healthcare will undoubtedly be a hot topic in the years to come.
Another healthcare topic that was frequently discussed last week is the shift to home-based care. According to Xealth, an estimated $265 billion of Medicare Services could be delivered in the home by 2025. Dr. Rasu Shrestha, Chief Innovation and Commercialization Officer at Advocate Healthcare, shared how they partnered with Best Buy Health to deliver care in the home, and the benefits they have already seen are astounding. Health systems that are turning to home-based and virtual care methods are relying on digital tools to gather health data and empower patients outside the point of care.
With EveryDose, patients are given the tools they need to manage their medications and stay adherent to their regimen. Even with these tools, it is well-documented that clinician involvement is critical to positive health outcomes. That’s why EveryDose built first-of-its-kind technology that enables clinicians to monitor real-time patient adherence and intervene digitally with non-adherent and at-risk patients, directly from the EHR. As virtual and home-based care discussions took center stage at ViVE 2023, EveryDose remains committed to providing seamless, interoperable technology that empowers both patients and clinicians to achieve the best possible health outcomes.
