In March 2019, HealthLeaders conducted a survey to our leadership audience on the Fully Connected Point of Care Ecosystem. With over 100 responses collected, two goals became clear: optimizing workflow efficiencies and providing a greater patient experience. But that wasn’t all.
In the latest Custom Research Brief, we spoke to Dr. Tom Schwieterman and Matt Bourne from Midmark Corporation about the issues they see healthcare organizations facing and strategies they can implement to overcome the obstacles in front of them.
Why a fully connected point of care ecosystem matters
Embrace the power of technology across the ecosystem
From hospitals and ambulatory care centers, to senior living facilities, physician networks, clinics and labs, a full spectrum of healthcare industry participants benefited immensely from new technological advancements—in both the administration and documentation of care. But with a rapid increase in vertical integration and M&A activity, coupled with an evermore complicated regulatory environment, participants now find themselves facing a greater complexity and diversity of liability risks. This environment is further complicated by an increasing shortage of qualified workers as the industry struggles to keep up with increased demand—all while maintaining the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care.
Recent increases in class actions, ethical and harassment-related complaints, as well as a changing social media, technology and cultural environment make it more challenging than ever to prepare for tomorrow’s risks with a properly planned response.

In the healthcare industry, managing the countless risks associated with delivering superior patient care requires all of your time and attention. This paper outlines the management liability landscape for the healthcare industry, as well as best practices and industry-leading solutions for mitigating those risks.

Patient satisfaction is currently treated as one proxy for the quality of care a patient receives.
