PALO ALTO, Calif., May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the healthcare industry continues to transform at a rapid pace, providers face increased financial, market and regulatory pressure to deliver high-quality, patient-centered care while eliminating unnecessary costs. At the same time, technology is constantly evolving to provide new ways to improve healthcare for both patients and providers. This Wednesday, global health economist Boris Rachev and Brice Jewell, senior director of enterprise applications of Cerner, will explore the top trends reshaping healthcare, including digital collaboration, during a Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) webinar.
In the webinar, Boris Rachev will explain how the evolution of patient care, cybersecurity and health system consolidation are driving a massive shift in how clinicians must work together day-to-day. He'll be joined by Brice Jewell from Cerner, a global leader in healthcare technology, who will share examples of how collaboration can benefit healthcare organizations. The discussion will explore the new era in digital collaboration, which can deliver better care coordination, build stronger alignment between clinical teams, organizations and provider networks, and help integrated health enterprises work more efficiently across the board.
"At Cerner, we've seen firsthand how a digital community of nearly 100,000 health care stakeholders can systemically enable the improvement of care delivery," said Jewell. "Since 2009, uCern Connect has driven knowledge sharing among hospitals, clinicians and medical device companies, as well as technology suppliers, consultants and Cerner associates. This digital collaboration brings our clients, associates and suppliers together more effectively as we work toward the mutual goal of improving health care."
"Overall, there is greater pressure on health delivery organizations to improve their clinical quality and efficiency. One way to do that is through collaboration platforms which bring all stakeholders together in the digital space," said Boris Rachev.
