Transformation of Healthcare to Home Care & Everywhere

Home Healthcare
By taking advantage of new advances in technology, physicians and medical practices are able to keep patient satisfaction high and reduce patient time spent in the office. The practice of "virtual medicine" is becoming more common as a tool to care for patients. Improving how patients experience the health care system means that patients will be more satisfied with their care...while reducing the costs to operate a practice and maximizing profits.

The four pillars of a healthcare delivery system are:  Improve Access; Improve Quality; Improve Outcomes and Reduce Costs. The rising costs of healthcare without relative improvement in outcomes has been a problem.  Efforts to "Transform" Health Care Delivery in the US has been on a fast track, over the last two decades. The changes are at many levels and since 2004 the direction to be "Data Driven" in decisions at delivery of care were set as a national challenge. Technology transformation has kept the changes chaotic and since March 20, 2015 payments for service with technology has opened another opportunity. Dr Khalid Moidu will share the vision for a new model of care delivery with no "In-Person" contact..

Watch the video and Dr Khalid Moidu as we look at new and future ways healthcare will evolve into more than just visits to medical facilities…Patients will have better care everywhere.
