Mobile devices have been changing the healthcare landscape for years – for providers, payers and consumers alike. As an agile healthcare IT company, BioIQ is in the vanguard of mobile population health. Many organizations leverage the BioIQ technology platform to streamline population health measurement and reduce costs. Case in point: In 2014, we blogged about the BioIQ tablet application, which a growing number of employers use to boost engagement and streamline interactions with healthcare professionals.
Fast forward two years – many health plans, employers and government agencies now depend on BioIQ’s configurable SaaS platform. These clients include numerous Fortune 500 companies that have workforces in almost every zip code of the country. And they span industries including aerospace, human resources consulting, information technology, healthcare and many more.
The prevalence of mobile devices will continue to increase as the U.S. healthcare system transitions from a fee-for-service model to value-based model. Providers and insurers use mobile devices (namely tablets) to close gaps in care and reduce costs. These devices can increase participation in population health programs, improve the user experience and seamlessly integrate healthcare data.
Meanwhile, consumers in progressively larger numbers are virtually tracking their health and using their mobile devices to communicate with providers. According to PwC’s Health Research Institute, Americans spend more than three and a half hours per day using mobile applications, and 62 percent of them use those devices to look up health information.
