Humana Launches ‘Innovation Challenge’ to Make Digital Health Records More Useful

MHW learned today that Humana Inc. is sponsoring an Innovation Challenge in California to make digital health records – specifically in the Medicare space – more useful to patients, physicians, caregivers and others who need to see complex data in a more human-centered way.

“Traditionally, the health care industry has stored digital health records – medical claims, pharmacy claims, calls, letters, hospital stays, and health program participation – in disparate places across different systems,” a provided statement notes. “But with advanced data processing and analytics, it is now possible to assemble these data sources into a chronological “story,” with all the different elements stitched together into a logical time order. Now that the data is organized, the opportunity is to present the data through a tool simple enough to allow users to make sense of even the most complex chronic history.”

In short, that’s the challenge for participants, who are encouraged to use visual and/or voice interaction modes to help users – including doctors, care managers, customer-service associates, and certainly the patient and her family – make best use of the data.

FIRST LOOK: Foley Survey Shows ‘Surging Telemedicine Services’ Across the Health Care Spectrum

According to the findings of a new report shared today with MHW, health care executives and providers have shed fears – and have even become enthusiastic – about the deployment of telemedicine services compared to three years ago.

That’s the key takeaway from a new survey conducted by law firm Foley & Lardner LLP.

More than 100 respondents from hospitals, specialty clinics, ancillary services and related organizations completed the survey, and nearly half of respondents hold C-suite or senior-level titles.

Foley’s 2017 Telemedicine and Digital Health Survey reflects a surging demand for telemedicine-based offerings among providers and patients, and a broader acceptance of the technology by other major players in the health care industry.

In the 2014 inaugural survey three years ago, 87 percent of respondents did not expect their patients to be using telemedicine services by this time. However, according to this year’s survey, those expectations have been defied with approximately three-quarters of respondents currently offering, or planning to offer, such services, and also having strong intentions to grow those programs (53 percent).
