A survey conducted by Digital Collaboration Solutions of 75 healthcare executives showed the following:
- 70% consider “improving patient outcomes” as their top goal in implementing care coordination right now
- 86% stated that coordinated care improvement efforts are a top-five priority in 2016
- 55% lack dedicated budget to support coordinated care improvement
Clearly, care coordination and improved outcomes are top-of-mind for executives; however, funding and technological restraints remain the primary obstacles for most providers implementing care coordination programs.
