3.) Digital Learning for Healthcare Consumers: Health Plan-Provided Education Is Key To Behavioral Change

Digital learning is a powerful tool for delivering information to healthcare professionals and members alike. By launching a digital learning program that applies proven learning principles, healthcare insurers can enable healthcare professionals and consumers to more easily understand and apply the medical information they receive, resulting in improved healthcare delivery at reduced costs. Through digital learning, healthcare providers and consumers armed with the latest information can work knowledgeably together to arrive at prudent and effective healthcare solutions.

4.) PricewaterhouseCoopers Calls The Current Medical Workforce Model Broken

There are more doctors and nurses today than ever before, but they are not being trained, distributed or deployed efficiently, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Health Research Institute.

According to a PwC analysis, a majority of doctors and nurses is nearing retirement just as the American public will need them most, and healthcare organizations are left with a diminishing pipeline of primary care physicians, new competition for nurses and a generation of young clinicians who have different expectations about work-life balance than their predecessors.
