The days are gone when health issues would be treated clinically in isolation from the many other factors that affect the wellbeing of individuals and communities. Today, the rising costs of health care, an aging population and increasingly complex chronic health problems are driving greater focus and attention on population health — the health outcomes of a group of individuals within a population. Indeed, these days more proactive approaches to health care and care delivery are identifying the social determinants of health for various populations such as environmental conditions, economic status, and access to resources and support.

Collaboration across the healthcare team has always been important. What’s different today? You can collaborate over video anywhere anytime to education, delivery care or get things done! Education, It’s a good thing, right? But education to prevent unnecessary re-hospitalizations is a great thing. Patients with chronic disease may find themselves in the hospital on Monday, released to go home a few days later, just to find themselves back in the Emergency room the following Monday creating an expensive cycle of declining health. Collaborative video education is breaking this cycle helping healthcare teams and patients better manage disease through community and home based education.

For those suffering from chronic or long-term health problems, there is often nothing quite as relieving as being sent home from the hospital—but also nothing quite as heartbreaking as readmission. Unfortunately, it is not unusual. Patients are sent home with instructions to continue improving their health, but few manage to do everything they need to do for a variety of reasons. Thankfully, there are ways to prevent this readmission.

Poor quality of care takes a tremendous toll, not just on the system as a whole, but on the patients and their families at the center of that system. It also has a tremendous effect on employers, who already face unsustainable health care costs. When we evaluated one of our customer's claims, we found numerous signs of preventable complications that had cost our client significant amounts, not to mention the toll on the individual. Specifically, we identified the following preventable hospital- acquired conditions (HACs): • Fourteen instances of stage III and IV pressure ulcers • Twelve instances of vascular catheter-associated infections • Thirteen instances of catheter-associated urinary tract infections • One instance of a patient dying or experiencing a serious disability associated with intravascular air embolism • Five instances of foreign objects remaining in patients after a procedure.

Chronic disease is a major expense for America’s healthcare system. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 90 percent of the $3.3 trillion in U.S. healthcare spend is for chronic diseases. If appropriate steps aren’t taken to improve both prevention and treatment of such diseases, the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease predicts that the projected total cost of chronic disease in America could tip the scales at $42 trillion by 2030. The most expensive conditions in terms of direct healthcare costs are diabetes, Alzheimer’s and osteoarthritis, and the three most common chronic conditions are hypertension, dyslipidemia and osteoarthritis.
