The healthcare sector faces economic pressures as consumers assume greater financial responsibility for their care and government payers roll out aggressive, value-based reimbursement models. These factors are pushing providers to deliver more integrated, team-based, coordinated care. To achieve these goals, healthcare systems must transform their IT, processes and organizational infrastructures, as well as their organizational cultures.
At Becker’s 5th Annual Health IT + Revenue Cycle Conference in Chicago, NTT DATA sponsored an executive roundtable to discuss how digital health tools can address these pressing issues. Attendees included health IT leaders and provider organization executives. Mary Edwards, president of NTT DATA’s provider division, facilitated an interactive discussion with session participants.
