Business of Well-being

Big Data and the Future of Health Analytics

One of the most prominent changes in healthcare has been the advent of a digital revolution in the industry. In what has been described as the "Uberization" of healthcare, key players have attempted to leverage the rapid developments in technology to disrupt patient care delivery and gain a competitive advantage. Healthcare systems and providers have now adopted electronic health records, remote monitoring systems, telemedicine, and other technologies to transform patient care. This transformation has seen health data extensively stored, shared, accessed, analyzed, and used in digital platforms, including wearable devices, smartphone apps, medical devices, and AI-driven models. Consequently, this shift has provided healthcare systems and other stakeholders access to a digital universe with large volumes of useful information that is integral to driving topline results and improving healthcare outcomes.

Prioritizing Employees in the New Normal

Just as coronavirus restrictions seemed to be easing up in early 2021, the American workforce faced severe disruption from what has now become known as 'The Great Resignation.' Millions of workers across the country quit their jobs and are not looking back. For most of these workers, it is time to say goodbye to their employers and to the conventional work model that has drained them for years. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, resignation numbers in November 2021 hit a record high of 4.5 million people, a considerable increase from the pre-pandemic level of 3.5 million people in April 2020. The reasons are the same across the board: employees are demotivated, dissatisfied, and disgruntled by how the conventional work model has made them pawns in the corporate space, growing businesses and improving the profitability of their organizations at the expense of their well-being and health.‍

Telemedicine: Exploring the Next Frontier of Healthcare

Digital healthcare has been a slowly growing area of healthcare since the dawn of the millennium. There had been clusters of virtual care services across the world, but the model had been largely resisted by healthcare providers who believed in the conventional model of healthcare. Then the pandemic struck and redefined the norm. In the wake of the pandemic, there has been mass adoption of virtual healthcare. The coronavirus restrictions led to limited access to healthcare via traditional hospital visits, and stakeholders had to leverage digital innovations. This led to the rapid adoption of telemedicine platforms for most non-emergency care services.

Is Your Office Ready to Fully Reopen?

In the last year and a half, the coronavirus pandemic disrupted work in ways we never saw coming; business executives were forced to reorganize their business models to remain in business and cushion the effect of the pandemic. As part of these responses, businesses remodeled their work structures to allow most of their employees to work from home. While this might have helped companies get the needed output level, it came with enormous challenges, including increased workplace stress, inadequate technology, and worsened social isolation. Now, with widespread vaccinations and declining infection rates, employers are considering reopening their office buildings fully.
