Healthcare has become more mobile, global and personal as it has already enlarged its scope beyond patient domain. Leading healthcare organizations are considering the proposition of treating chronically ill patients without even accommodating them in the healthcare centers as their focus is shifting from treatment to prevention.
For this purpose, wireless technologies are being built around the idea that interactions and personalized data are prompted by the patients and managed by both healthcare providers (hospitals, Medical Home Teams, Doctors, etc.) and patients. This implies more participatory and collaborative relationship between healthcare providers and patients. There is nothing wrong in saying that we have much improved vision for “patient centricity” which includes more active, more empowering e-patient support.
Movements to implement the new relationship model are likely to be incremental because it represents a fundamental cultural shift. Forward thinkers or “early adopters” may embrace this model. Therefore, keeping in view today’s needs, MILE Academic Committee is going to organize 3rd Leadership Program on High Performance healthcare Organizations.
