The increasing number of healthcare costs and the escalating awareness of medical issues have had many Americans turning their attention towards the need for quality care in the United States healthcare system.
When it comes to improving healthcare quality, many measures have to be taken that can be viewed on both a macro and micro level. For that reason, it will require us to create a systematic change. Better transparency, following up on protocol to keep the patients safe from any diseases or infections and connecting patients to improved medical resources are some examples on how we can dramatically improve the quality of healthcare. However, there are still many issues that must be addressed first, some of which include the following mentioned below.
Better Diagnostics Through Collected Data
If you cannot measure anything, it becomes a hassle to manage. To improve the quality of care, it is essential that your organization should be able to analyze existing data and figure out potential opportunities.
Collected data can help you identify areas of issues and possible ways to improve patient outcomes. Be rigorous in keeping track of all your patients’ data. You can also use EHRs, surveys of patient satisfaction, outcome studies, and other types of data sources to effectively monitor the outcome, costs and overall health of individual patients under your care.
Enhancing Care Access
One of the most important factors that can significantly boost healthcare quality is providing everyone with equal access to healthcare facilities across the globe.
To get the proper results, patients need adequate treatment at the right time. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to get access to all kinds of treatments. According to the Proactive MD, it was stated that more than 15 percent of the population is not insured, thus reducing the patients’ access to timely care, and without having the necessary care beforehand, these people end up having to rely on higher-cost care.
Moreover, providing access to care does not only refer to the effort of regularly visiting a clinic, but it also means to upgrade how and where the patients can get access. The health care system is too fragmented, which is why it is necessary for all kinds of organizations to come together, collaborate, and exchange information to make it convenient to offer care to all kinds of people worldwide.
Fortunately, there are already professional business figures in the medical industry who have already moved forward with these approaches. For example, let us consider the contributions made by Juan de Borbon, a highly acclaimed clinical research executive. As someone with an extensive background in global clinical R&D, conducting over 2000 clinical trials spread across various therapeutic areas, Jon de Borbon is one of the few individuals who has thoroughly understood the need to improve healthcare facilities for faster patient recovery periods.
Consequently, he has accomplished several achievements – a few of them include being the President and CEO at CPK Clinical Research Institute, a startup business with a focused hospital-based phase 1 clinical pharmacology unit with additional outpatient clinical sites.
Furthermore, he has also joined American Health in 2021, where he has been leading this organization to the development of smart clinics throughout the globe while simultaneously upgrading the healthcare industry. Some of the ways he has already boosted the productivity of the industry are through the introduction of state-of-art technologies with Telehealth and improving the qualifications of the ‘professional staff’ through intensive competency-based learning, training, and career development programs.
