Opening The Digital Front Door In Healthcare

The healthcare industry is at the verge of a paradigm shift, given the rising trend of consumerization, focus on value-based care, and the ever-changing demands of its complex value chain. This transformation has invariably pushed healthcare providers to rethink every aspect of care delivery and redefine engagement. From making patient portals efficient to unifying disparate functional systems and optimizing the utilization of resources – there are many gaps to be filled in the healthcare continuum.

According to Gartner’s 2022 CIO Agenda: A Healthcare Provider’s Perspective1, the pandemic response and recovery induced a major delay in digital optimization and adoption of virtual care delivery. During this period, telehealth visits increased 63-folds2. The current state highlights that healthcare organizations are early in their journey to becoming composable enterprises and need to think fast and adapt to the market’s digital demands.

Digital Front Door offers seamless, rich, and omnichannel patient experiences that ultimately make a patient feel as if they’ve entered a round-the-clock holistic healthcare system.

Innovation at every stage

What the industry as a whole, needs today is a Digital Front Door/Digital Corridor experience for patients to feel as if they’ve entered a round-the-clock, well-organized healthcare system. Such digital innovation can offer seamless, rich, omnichannel patient experiences, access to information, easy-to-understand care process, and services that are personalized to the patient. Digital Front Door provides a holistic experience for patients, care providers, and agents across all phases of patient interactions and care delivery. It unifies services that are otherwise scattered across the healthcare value chain and helps engage with patients at every touchpoint in the most user-friendly ways.
