The journey to digital healthcare

The need for technological solutions in healthcare has never been greater as the NHS deals with unprecedented pressure. From personalised medicine made a reality through genome sequencing, to sharing health data and giving patients access to their own records, the government is ramping up its work on a digital NHS.

In this e-guide we look at how the NHS shared care records projects are progressing, and the European Commission's plans to share health data across borders. We also look at how one NHS trust has created a social media platform to help mental health service users, and examine Scotland's digital health and care strategy.

  • Which Health Plans Can Be Accessed by Individuals with Disabilities?

    Public and private payers alike offer a multitude of benefits for people living with disabilities. According to the CDC, up to 27 percent of adults in the United States have some type of disability, including mobility, cognition, independent living, vision, hearing, and self-care disabilities.

    Adverse health conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, and diabetes, are more common among those with disabilities. Therefore, affordable access to healthcare is especially important for this population. However, one in four adults with disabilities between 18 and 44 do not have a usual healthcare provider and have unmet healthcare needs due to costs.

    In the following article, HealthPayerIntelligence breaks down how people with disabilities can qualify for the different health plans available.

    Providers must have the right mindset to care for patients and the capabilities to support their goals to establish a successful ACO, according to Rachit Thariani, chief administrative officer for the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s post-acute and home-based care division.
