No matter what happens to the ACA, the trend of providing value based health care has gained a momentum that won’t be easy to stop. If Trump succeeds in eliminating health exchanges and rolling back coverage in states that expanded Medicaid, providers will likely see a dramatic rise in uncompensated care. Hospitals will bear the brunt of this increase in uncompensated care and have an incentive begin utilizing scalable methods for population health management.
A Harvard study analyzed records from almost 800,000 patients to assess the efficacy of Dreamit startup MedAware. The report found that MedAware’s technology identifies errors otherwise undetected by current systems in use, minimizes the risks arising from fatigued doctors who are used to getting false alerts from current systems, and reduces prescription errors with high accuracy.
We wanted to take a moment to congratulate the many Dreamit founders who found themselves on the Forbes 30 Under 30 lists in the health and science categories. Forbes chose them for being some of the "brightest young entrepreneurs, innovators and game changers" in their industries. We can attest to that, and we're tremendously proud of the accomplishments of these founders.
