Challenges in health

Clinician shortages, time and cost pressures, and increased patient demands create a number of challenges for health organizations trying to improve patient experiences and outcomes. 

In this new landscape, health organizations are addressing four critical “aims” for organizational success under the Quadruple Aim:  

  • Enhancing the patient experience 
  • Enhancing the care team experience  
  • Improving population health  
  • Reducing per capita cost of care 

Innovative technology is dramatically shifting the way health organizations can meet the quadruple aim and become more efficient, effective, and productive.

The Microsoft approach

As a global partner in healthcare, Microsoft believes the Quadruple Aim will be met and exceeded through digital transformation and the power of partnership. To transform global health outcomes, technology businesses must come together to build on innovative ideas, share in healthcare challenges, and celebrate the success of transformation.

Microsoft platforms and services lay the trusted foundation for solutions that improve patient and employee experiences, empower researchers, and enhance products and services
