An aging population and an increasing incidence of chronic conditions are causing healthcare costs to rise at an unsustainable rate. Microsoft and our partners provide solutions that can help governments, agencies, payers, and healthcare providers efficiently and proactively improve personal and public health and wellness and contain costs related to chronic conditions.
Personal health and wellness, condition management, and population health intelligence solutions equip government and health workers as well as citizens with tools that help them reduce the incidence and severity of chronic conditions and, as a result, lessen the need for costly treatments.
Personal health and wellness solutions help health professionals engage and inform citizens and patients to promote behavior that can lead to healthier lifestyles and increased prevention of chronic conditions. Our solutions within this category include Patient Relationship Management offering new ways to share information with patients, Health Portals offering a central information hub for patients and providers, and Electronic Medical Records providing patients access to their health records.
- Condition management solutions can help health professionals actively manage and improve citizens’ and patients’ health conditions to minimize acute episodes, hospitalization and expensive procedures, and provide citizens and patients access to personal health solutions to help them stay better informed and be proactive in managing their health condition.
- Population health intelligence solutions help health professionals measure, manage, and monitor clinical and demographic data and programs so they can align service offerings, coverage, and eligibility to improve population health and wellness.
Cost-effective and interoperable, these solutions meet the needs of individuals, small government agencies, large national government departments, health plans and insurers, and large healthcare provider organizations so that the entire health ecosystem can be engaged in achieving a more proactive and sustainable healthcare model.
