The younger generation, who have grown up in this time of rapid change, take all this new technology in their stride. But what about seniors and elderly people?

One of the most recent and exciting discoveries related to...

Written by Helen Dempster, Chief Visionary Officer, Karantis360 As the ageing population grows and pressures on healthcare professionals mount, it has become clear that the care sector is strained. This is having an extremely negative impact on carers, and most importantly their clients, as they try to deliver a high quality level of care in a continuously pressured environment.

Interoperability plays a fundamental role in the future of healthcare. By 2020 global healthcare data is expected to reach 2.3 billion gigabytes – a phenomenal amount – for all sorts of uses: vital signs data for monitoring conditions, high-resolution images to support diagnosis, or pharmacy records to understand which medicines should be prescribed. But this information needs to be in the right hands to be truly effective. Clinicians and carers can work smarter and provide...

For a majority of medical practices, hospitals, and healthcare systems, physician referrals are the backbone of the practice. It is essential for physicians to connect and build referral relationships with local physicians to help boost patient referrals and overall patient growth for the practice. With physician referrals as a large portion of the patient base, many physicians and practices have begun implementing physician liaison marketing programs. Physician liaisons allow the physician the ability to connect...

Even without dusting off a high school math book, most people would tell you that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Too often, we are unable to take that straight path to our intended destination, forcing us to take the long way, sometimes even landing us hopelessly gridlocked in traffic bottlenecks. This analogy is particularly apt when applied to the healthcare revenue cycle. To the uninitiated, the process looks simple enough:...

Missed medical appointments plague the healthcare industry. Unattended sessions cost the sector billions each year, and can have a significant effect on your own practice. Some medical practices have been known to experience no-show rates of 50%, although, typically, evidence suggests that urban clinics tend to see non-attendance rates of around 15-30%.
