Architecting Access to Healthcare
Schwabe, Williamson, & Wyatt

In the face of massive healthcare changes, access to healthcare is a difficult and important problem to solve. Barriers to care access can include: price transparency, no price expectations, ineffective financing, general lack of convenience, dwindling numbers of physicians, inability to access transportation, unintegrated clinical information, limited hours of provider operations, confusing insurance coverage and difficult scheduling. At the same time, there are a plethora of new approaches, technologies, applications and services being created to improve access to healthcare. As consumer-centered care takes over as the norm, the expectations for care delivery services and access to health care are being compared to other services in our day to day life. Consumers are beginning to ask why things can’t be easier and why people in the healthcare industry can’t seem to cooperate to make the lives of consumers easier. Everyone in the industry has clearly gotten the message that consumer-centered healthcare is where the industry is heading; however, IT is still viewed as a barrier and an enabler.

Enterprise architects have the difficult role of trying to help transform organizations to improve access to care by defining the business, information, technology and application architectures required to improve access to healthcare. At the same time, they are expected to solve the problem from the consumer’s perspective and make a complex healthcare system appear to be easy to navigate from the consumer’s perspective. Architects are expected to look across the landscape of technologies, information and business models and produce integrated solutions that leverage new developments and also break down existing IT barriers.

In this session, you'll hear from three architects in healthcare about their views about how to solve the problem of access to health care. When registering, you will have a chance to submit your questions in helping to build the program.
