Terry Hush, healthcare futurist, co-founder, and CEO of Roji Health Intelligence, a company that provides customized technology and data solutions to help healthcare providers succeed in value-based care, discusses how consumer-focused initiatives will greatly expand in 2022. As payers such as Medicare, health plans, and pharmaceutical companies expand efforts to align patients with primary or specialty providers with incentives for providing affordable health care, health systems will need to bridge the gap of consumer trust and data sharing to ensure their engagement in health system efforts, or face patient and financial losses under value-based reimbursements.
