After listening to hospitals, surgeons, medical staff, post-acute providers, and patients, we focused on the most complex problem to make healthcare better.
The multi-provider healthcare experience is broken.
Engaging and well coordinated multi-provider healthcare is too difficult.
Yes, people get better in the current healthcare process, but the care process is way more painful for everyone involved than it needs to be -- insurers, providers and patients, and it costs way more than it should.
When asked to describe their healthcare experience, almost all individuals - whether a provider or a patient - did not describe their experience as positive.
Providers will tell you stories of the additional work created by EMR systems that have taken significant time away from patient care, the pain from the EMR user interfaces that were not designed with the provider in mind, the extreme difficulty to keep in touch with patients and providers, the payment models which do not provide incentive for more efficiencies, and the difficulty to utilize technologies effectively to scale their practices and time.
Patients that have chronic conditions will tell you of the difficulty to gain knowledge about their condition and determine which path is the right one for them, how expensive it is to get the proper provider help, and that after they get some care or procedure, they feel left alone to deal with the ongoing daily needs.
Patients will tell you that while they have confidence in their primary care surgeon or care provider. However, once patients leave the medical office -- it feels like "out of sight - out of mind" and they are in a self-management situation and the coordination difficulties begin. They will also tell you that the healthcare process is difficult to interface with, and that it doesn't consider alternatives to adapt to their busy daily lives and schedules.
The multi-provider healthcare experience is broken. Enough is enough, let's fix it together.
Lifecycle Health was founded to bring together the leading edge technologies in web, mobility, user experience design, workflows, engagement techniques, and cloud to make a significant impact on healthcare and ultimately the patient experience.
This is the foundation of the Lifecycle Health software platform.
