Information technology, mobile connectivity, social networking, and healthcare delivery are at a historical point of convergence. Now is the time to invest in new strategies to direct the future of healthcare.
The goal of the Mill City Innovation and Collaboration Center (Mill City ICC) is to reduce unnecessary clincal visits while improving the quality of chronic disease and ambulatory patient care. The ICC plans to do this by researching and testing new care models based on collaboration and intelligent utilization of technology. Telehealth will play a critical role in the ICC design process.
The ICC has already become a magnet, attracting hardware, software, telecommunications, life science and academic institutions that want to play a vital role in reimaging the patient experience. The ICC’s programs will educate healthcare systems and serve as a site where participants can collaborate in developing the necessary New Models of patient engagement, monitoring and motivation.”
Look forward to tracking the ICC progress as we delve into the “super convergence”!
