The main ingredients for maintaining a cold chain are effective digital communication and data collection. The complete integration of the entire supply chain processes, linking them to the data supporting regulatory needs and quality considerations, as well as automating complex patient reimbursement processing is an absolute requirement. This is where a software service provider can have an integral role to play.


How Healthy are you?

People perceive their health condition to be good or normal, unless there is an episode of care or they have a chronic ailment. In a literal and in perceived sense, a normal person is one who is physically and mentally healthy. 
However, a recent study published by Royal Philips (Future Health Index)1 highlights the fact that there is a huge gap between how patients perceive health versus how doctors or physicians view them. Per this report, when quizzed, 84% of respondents felt they were in good health-condition, whereas only 53% of medical professionals felt that the general public was in good health. 
This chasm of healthiness index can potentially lead to irreparable bodily harm, comorbidities and in extreme cases, loss of life. While this is a gargantuan issue, our healthcare industry is grappling with issues of rising costs and trying to find effective means to honour the promise of CARE, one that is evidence based and patient centric. Connected Healthcare seems to bring a solution to both these problems, and what’s better, it looks simple!

Virtual assistants provide personalized aid by answering day-to-day queries about specific conditions and medications, providing instructions, and making recommendations based on customers’ data. The consumers are also well connected by integrating their calendars for reminders on appointments, medication refills, checkup dates, etc. VAs can also help procure drugs through online pharmacies based on the patients’ prescriptions. V
As uses are not just limited to responsive data but also help in proactively tracking of symptoms and medications, and subsequently assisting in condition-based maintenance. These interactions will provide patients with the most personalized and accurate information and help adhere to better treatment, eventually providing a long-term benefit. These interactions also enhance the patients’ experience as they give an essence of individual attention and not just standardized care.
