John Doerr: 3 Future Healthcare Technology Trends

John Doerr is a renowned venture capitalist known for directing funding to some of the world’s most successful technology companies. In this video, he talks about the trends and advancements in healthcare technology that he believes are going to have a major impact.

“We can look forward to a world where [mobile] devices will be more than essential; that we won’t be able to imagine how a hospital would function without it.”

– John Doerr

Infrastructures For Independent Accountable Physicians

Can independent physicians remain independent in this changing healthcare environment? Donald Crane and Dr. Walt Ettinger discuss collaborative care management, the choices that independent physicians are facing, and how shared infrastructures can support changes in behavior.

“The model we’ve chosen is to work with independent physicians. To try to provide the resources that we’re building around care management and other things — bring those to the physicians and engage them in that way.”

– Dr. Walt Ettinger

Technology is important, but it’s not the only component. Check out best practices for transitioning to a population health model.

Challenges And Opportunities In Healthcare Data

Healthcare is teeming with data. But the way it’s currently organized neither improves collaboration in the delivery of care, nor allows for the efficient sharing of data. Our panelists discuss recent changes in healthcare data collection, the challenges of managing data, what kind of data is missing, and how data could be better used to improve the healthcare industry.

“Even at this point today, there’s not a single database that contains all of the Medicaid claims information, fifty years after the Medicaid system was created.”

– John Doerr

Providing Meaningful Incentives For Physicians As The Model Changes

Physician engagement is key to the success of a population health model. But what kind of compensation and incentives will be meaningful to them in the midst of change, and effective over the long term? The panel discusses behavioral economics, payer/provider partnerships, and the role of enabling technology.

“The destination is moving away from productivity incentives to a roster of incentives that match the ways that the group itself is incentivized.”

– Donald Crane
