Cost of Healthcare in America

The cost of Healthcare in the United States is a significant factor that prevents people from obtaining the necessary care or filling prescriptions. Half of U.S. adults have stated that they postponed or completely mitigated some sort of dental or health care in the past year due to the high cost. Three in 10 people have also reported not taking their necessary medicines as prescribed at some point due to the very same reason. High healthcare costs excessively affect uninsured adults and those with lower household incomes. Larger shares of U.S. adults have also reported difficulty affording different types of care, which further delays and attributes to them forgoing medical care due to the cost.

However, individuals that are covered by health insurance are not immune to the weight of healthcare costs. Almost half (46%) of those insured reported difficulty affording out-of-pocket expenses, and 27% had reported difficulty in being able to afford their deductible. Difficulty paying medical bills has resulted in significant consequences for U.S. families. Medical bill problems are also disproportionately affecting those adults in households where they or a member of their household has a severe health condition.

ModMed® Acquires Maker of the Klara® Practice & Patient Collaboration Platform

ModMed | February 09, 2022

ModMed has acquired Klara, a leader in patient communication and collaboration whose platform empowers patients to take more control of their healthcare experience and practices to increase efficiency. Klara’s platform is designed to enable collaboration and communication between practice and patient, including how patients discover, select and engage with a provider. The capability for practices and patients to collaborate digitally has never been more important. “We are in the midst of one of healthcare’s greatest shifts and Klara is a leading innovator toward a more patient-centric experience. Frankly, we believe this is a new category. We see a future where unified collaboration platforms will create a more convenient and frictionless environment - where conversations and the data they contain flow directly into EHR and PM systems while also connecting back to patients and practices and third-party providers like pharmacies, labs, and insurance companies. We believe that this more convenient and frictionless environment can fundamentally improve interactions, involvement and ownership of healthcare outcomes across the ecosystem.” Dan Cane, Chief Executive Officer of ModMed Between the pandemic, staff shortages, population growth, and the rise of aging boomers, healthcare workers are burning out at an alarming rate. When coupled with growing consumer demand for technologies that help patients take a more active role in their care, the healthcare industry can benefit from innovative solutions that better support the medical community and further empower patients. “ModMed is well-known for its deep focus on healthcare technology research and development and for taking a customer-led approach to helping providers create efficiencies and save time,” said Simon Bolz, Co-Founder of Klara. Dr. Simon Lorenz, also Co-Founder of Klara, added: “We look forward to leveraging our expertise as well as technology and working together to deliver even better patient-centric innovations so that we continue to improve the experience for all patients.” Cane continued, “We are beyond excited to help shape this next frontier which has the potential to alleviate pressures on healthcare workers, give greater control to patients, and improve on healthcare collaboration throughout the industry.” About ModMed ModMed is transforming healthcare by placing doctors and patients at the center of care through an intelligent, specialty-specific cloud platform. With our electronic health records (EHR) and practice management (PM) systems, and our revenue cycle management (RCM) services, our all-in-one solution empowers specialty medical practices to do their best work by providing them with clinical, financial and operational software solutions designed to enable better, more personalized patient care.

OMNY Health | May 07, 2021

OMNY Health recently confirmed the commercial launch of the OMNY Health PlatformTM, a healthcare data-sharing solution that accelerates innovation by providing the healthcare community with opportunities to connect anonymized data with researchers from life sciences organizations. Clients of the Platform will use this data to develop new therapies, improve treatment availability, and evaluate efficacy. The use of anonymized real-world treatment data to help life sciences organizations making healthcare decisions is not new. However, it is often done without the direct intervention of healthcare professionals – the originators of the information. The OMNY Health Platform enables provider organizations of all sizes to enter into data-sharing partnerships with life sciences organizations to facilitate research activities in an accessible and effective manner. "As a healthcare executive focusing on patient safety and quality, I was often disappointed by our inability to efficiently partner with life sciences firms to solve patients' treatment issues and understand unmet needs," said Mitesh Rao, MD, CEO, and Founder of OMNY Health. "OMNY Health offers a trusted, compliant approach for patients and providers to create open and safe data-driven partnerships on a large scale and with minimal effort." The OMNY Health Platform is built on de-identified, normalized electronic health record data, which is enhanced with tokens that allow connections across the data ecosystem while maintaining patient confidentiality. A diverse group of hospitals, health systems, and specialty provider organizations have now committed to joining the network, representing care delivered in 39 states and over 10 million patient lives. More than 100 pre-packaged searchable and downloadable data offerings aligned to strategic therapeutic zones, drug classes, and procedure groups are available on the platform. The platform's direct-from-source data covers all inpatient and outpatient care, as well as both payer types. For life sciences researchers, OMNY can also provide personalized data cuts and comparisons. These data insights will help us to identify unmet patient needs, plan more efficient clinical trials, and inform strategies to address access to care challenges. The number of organizations choosing to participate in the data exchange platform, as well as the types of data made available, is rapidly increasing. About OMNY Health OMNY Health uses data and insights to connect patients, providers, and life sciences organizations to accelerate life-changing innovation. Its simple-to-use, secure platform enables life sciences organizations to engage in collaborative data and research partnerships in an efficient, compliant, and scalable manner.
