Healthcare organizations across the globe have been dealing with persistent instability since COVID-19 took effect. The complexities of keeping patients and staff healthy and handling money, remote treatment and clinical and budgetary emergencies sometimes have been paralyzing. However, businesses have always been able to evolve and adapt, prepared not just to endure the uncertain path forward but also to innovate, develop and compete by 2020.
Hospitals and healthcare systems are building a stronger health environment in 2021 by versatile, personal care models; smarter, quicker, predictive information; streamlined supply chain; and on-site collaborations. Here’s a closer look at how healthcare companies are protecting their future through these success measures and more.
VinCense Remote Patient Monitoring Platform featuring India’s first clinical grade wearable based Wireless Health Monitoring System – VinCense WHMS (patent pending). The wrist-wearable tracks four vital signs – pulse rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate and skin temperature wirelessly and pushes to the cloud from where healthcare providers can access real-time actionable data in a user-centered interface.
Redefine Supply Chain Techniques: COVID-19 revealed significant vulnerabilities across supply chain networks and vendor partnerships that health care companies now need to solve. Although organizations have partnered randomly with vendors, manufacturers and non-health care firms to manage capability and capital through the epidemic, they would be more discerning to go forward. Effective hospitals aim to drive flexibility, self-reliance, confidence and creativity through the supply chain. For example, after supply chains failed during the pandemic, healthcare companies started to reclaim power, switching once again to a self-distribution model instead of just-in-time delivery by manufacturers. This helps them to buy in bulk, monitor delivery, and reduce their chance of missing key products.
The pandemic demonstrated the importance of maintaining a stable relationship with suppliers that could be trusted to supply products at fair costs, particularly during spikes. Hospitals evaluate vendors more closely and collaborate with those who can strike a strategic balance between price, efficiency and confidence. They often build relations with back-up vendors, who are mostly smaller and physically closer, allowing flexibility, speed and willingness to manage inventory levels. VinCense Remote monitoring and alert features leading to efficient, on time quality care & Easy adherence to clinical protocols and guidelines also reduces human error leading to better patient safety.
Blurred Lines: Healthcare companies are engaged in joint competition, or co-opting, and collaborating with their former foes, including big-box supermarkets and national pharmacy chains. Organizations may provide health care, diagnostics and chronic disease treatment services at a reduced cost. If a major store offers high-quality low-cost mammography services in a city, more patients can opt to access these preventive services, opening the door to a potentially substantial influx of new referrals. VinCense platform for NCD & Chronic disease management which drastically reduces the health care cost.
Empowering users in health care: Patients are continually demanding a high degree of quality and transparency from their healthcare providers. They don’t want to wait weeks or months for a consultation, or even days to see the test results. Smart healthcare companies are evaluating their existing obstacles to customer loyalty and are deploying analytics and patient-centric innovations to enhance the ease, speed and transparency of treatment.

Prioritizing Customized Treatment Experience: As healthcare is getting easier and more accessible due to increased interactive communications, companies need to be more able to consider patients on a personal level before, after and after the test. Market health data tends to demonstrate that tailored treatment experiences are the touchstone of customer loyalty. If a consultation takes place remotely or in person, patients expect doctors to take the time to listen, demonstrate respect and communicate clearly. As healthcare providers continue to digitize healthcare experience, professional educational programs with meaningful results may need to emphasize ways to provide precision medication in all healthcare settings. VinCense’s digitized platform helps doctors to access patient health records and trends remotely which enables preventive care and early intervention.
Responding to a change in the workforce. COVID-19 has reinforced the need to strengthen the safety and welfare of workers. Expect healthcare providers to step up the testing of patients and personnel, online employment and virtual care facilities. They are now rethinking wellbeing programs and improving access to mental health resources to alleviate burn-out and making work more sustainable. VinCense helps in emergency assistance in quick time and maximize independence and community participation.
Going the Virtual Treatment Distance. Digital care visits rose exponentially after the onset of the pandemic and primary care telehealth visits soared from less than 1% to 43% between February and April 2020. Since then, the thinking about virtualization has clearly taken hold of doctors, practitioners, and customers. Healthcare companies are beginning to match their virtual strategies with the changing demands of their markets, growth targets and payment models. The aim is to serve clinicians and patients in a more realistic manner: interactive needs to be the way organizations work versus a detached part of the plan. VinCense platform thereby helps to self-manage health and well-being; peace of mind; better quality of life.
