Collaborative Care: An Economic ImperativeCost pressures, new payment models, and demographic trends are creating a global economic crisis as health systems struggle to care for an aging population of sicker patients. Funds available for healthcare are constrained, and they’re being wasted by inefficient, uncoordinated healthcare services.Collaboration is nothing new to healthcare, but with more patients to care for, more stakeholders to coordinate, and limited funds; traditional paper, phone, and fax communications are woefully inadequate.
