How Nearsure is Supporting the Latest Advancements in Healthcare and Tech
The healthcare industry is continually evolving. It’s always been a dynamic and rapidly developing field! Yet, the latest advancements in healthcare and tech are truly allowing stakeholder groups, ranging from clinicians to patients, to expect substantial changes and a major impact in virtually little time. A recent study has shown that 80% of health systems plan to increase their investment levels in digital health over the next five years.
With the increasing adoption of healthcare information technology (HIT) and healthcare becoming more humanized, Nearsure is focusing more and more on patient well-being at the center of medical technology. Here’s how we’re bridging healthcare and tech jobs for ultimate progress for healthcare companies’ ultimate digital acceleration today.
First, Let’s See What’s to Come: Healthcare and Tech Trends
As we’ve said, significant developments in the healthcare industry have started a substantial transformation in the way medical professionals deliver healthcare. Technologies such as electronic health records (EHRs), telemedicine, and remote patient monitoring have become increasingly popular in recent years. The benefits of these medical technologies include improved patient outcomes, increased efficiency, and reduced costs for healthcare providers.
As can be expected for anyone in the tech industry, artificial intelligence (AI) and data analysis are also causing enormous leaps forward in healthcare technology. The use of data analytics and AI is helping improve the accuracy of diagnoses, predict disease progression, and identify at-risk patients before they develop serious health problems. AI is also being used to develop new treatments and therapies. Those include personalized medicine to tailor those treatments for individual patients based on their genetic makeup and other factors.
As tech moves us forward in this industry, so is there more room for a human approach to the use of new technologies, which is an area of great interest to us as a people-focused organization. We’re glad to report that a great new trend transforming healthcare companies today is indeed a growing focus on patient-centered care.
Healthcare providers are placing a greater emphasis on the needs and preferences of individual patients today.
Rather than treating and viewing people as medical cases, we’re now seeing the development of new approaches in care delivery. Team-based care and shared decision-making are becoming more common, aiming to involve patients more fully in their own care.
The above is also tied to a growing awareness of the importance of social determinants in shaping health outcomes. Those include data on poverty, education, and the bare access to healthcare. We’re seeing healthcare providers increasingly recognize the need to address these factors as part of their efforts to improve population health and reduce healthcare disparities. So where does Nearsure stand on all this?
Nearsure, Tech, and Healthcare: We’re Doing Our Part
As an outsourcing provider, Nearsure naturally works with clients in various industries who make us part of innovative and exciting projects. Yet, our healthcare clients are no exception. Nearsure is currently helping build new medical technology and deliver outstanding healthcare services in this industry in liaison with loyal clients who share our vision and culture. Through these partnerships, we’re not only ensuring more patients receive better care, but we’re also doing our part to make medical professionals’ lives easier. To give out proof of our work, a couple of our clients in the medical field include:
As a leading provider of data and analytics technology and services for healthcare organizations, Health Catalyst’s cloud-based data platform is powered by more than 100 million patient records while encompassing trillions of facts. Their analytics software and expertise in professional services allow professionals to make data-informed decisions for measurable clinical, financial, and operational improvements.
Within seven months, Nearsure brought on board nearly half of Health Catalyst’s team members to quickly ramp up their productivity with data engineers. We came together to develop new COVID-19 tracking capabilities and functionalities that incorporated their client requests and feedback in near real-time.
Since 2010, CheXout has and continues to help public health organizations digitize clinics and operations working in states, territories, counties, cities, and local health departments. The company runs a cloud-based software solution that’s helping healthcare organizations develop a variety of tools, including patient portals, monitoring, communications, clinic and research management, contact tracing, and much more.
In addition, March 2020 created an urgent need for a way to track COVID-19 for public organizations. Although we’re currently living in a “post-pandemic” period, Nearsure’s agile software development teams rapidly built new features and functionality to customize CheXout’s Contact Tracing Suite for this use. These updates made it possible for CheXout to deliver under life-or-death pressure and stress.
What’s Next for Nearsure and Healthcare Technology, then?
Our efforts don’t rest there. On the contrary, we remain thirsty and hungry for all of the new ways in which we can further specialize in each of our clients’ industries. Doing so is a pillar for us, as that’s also how we can better offer customized solutions. At Nearsure, we focus on tailoring our services to our business partners’ specific needs to add more value to their goals and mission day in and day out.
Devoted to helping further advancements in the world of healthcare companies and always excited to hear what other companies have on the horizon, Nearsure’s C-level leadership will be attending this year’s HIMSS23 Global Conference in Chicago for the third time. This exciting conference is bringing together thought leaders, changemakers, and disruptors across the global field of health information and technology this month for them to learn about new advancements and feel especially empowered to make their own. We’re glad for our presence where the latest events are happening in the healthcare industry to better help existing and future clients with medical technology.
Part of the questions we’re bringing to this meeting center on questions around the problems we can address more efficiently through digital healthcare and technology. Which precise obstacles can we solve though high-end technology applications in the medical field today and for the near future? From privacy to fully reliable applications, we still need to re-think and revamp what we’re doing in the field.
