#2 No Cost Competition (Obstacle to Workflow Tech in Healthcare)


No Cost Competition. Why would one want to implement workflow technology in order to become more efficient if you are paid whatever it cost you plus 5%? So, you're paid according to volume. Now, we're moving to a more value-oriented situation where accountable care organizations are being assigned the goal of taking care of a set of folks in the population, and they're responsible for both the clinical outcomes and managing the cost. The more efficient and effective they are, the better they did, the more profit they make, the more money they can reinvest into their operations.

This was an example of 2 obstacles that were there and are receding. For example, we've hit the workflow wall in health IT, and people are starting to realize that.
