Health spending as a percentage of GDP is growing at an unsustainable rate. In 1962, health spending represented 5.3% of US GDP. The National Academy of Science predicts that by 2022, health spending will reach 19.9% of US GDP. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services are introducing innovative efforts to shift to ‘value-based-care’, where care quality is improved and costs are reduced. Value-based healthcare requires greater collaboration between providers. In this new paradigm, health systems and health providers need to better leverage technology to collaborate in the care delivered to shared patients. The hiring of Miles and promotion of Sean are critical steps in furthering Olio’s software engineering infrastructure that is helping solve the challenges faced by the US healthcare system and improve patient outcomes.
Founded in 2017, Olio's collaboration platform connects health systems, physicians, and post-acute providers in real-time on their patients' condition. When patients are discharged, Olio enables hospitals, physicians and post-acute teams to know where patients are, what their status is, and what they can do to ensure better outcomes.
