Reflecting over the last 2 years
The pandemic has shown us the crucial imperative of having highly functioning and interconnected healthcare systems. Everything comes at a cost which is why it is so important to achieve the greatest value for money. But what is value and whose values matter most?
As we emerge after two very long and trying years, it has never been more apparent that both individual values and societal values must be taken into consideration in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. Outdated, disconnected, or nonexistent data systems create an inability to efficiently track and trace vaccine uptake and patient outcomes. Lower utilization and wastage of vaccine supply creates an inability to provide excess to other countries to help control spread of COVID-19 and improve global health outcomes.
As restrictions are lifted to varying extents and at different times across the provinces and territories, in parallel to increasing case counts of yet another variant in Asia and Europe, interconnected health (and even wastewater) data collection and reporting systems have never been more relevant to delivering timely and appropriate support to the right systems and individuals.
And as they say, you can’t fix what you don’t measure. Although our learnings from the past two years are too numerous to list, the Medlior team are enthused to collaborate with our research community to deliver data-driven insights to support value-based health care systems.
Give us a call to find out how we can help.
