The expense of healthcare in the US continues to be a pressing issue that requires prompt action. Much work has been done, including implementing health insurance and government subsidies. Nevertheless, it is essential to note that these efforts have failed to solve the issue. Specific programs, like universal insurance coverage, have only served to lower consumer costs, but as more people use the system, the quality and safety of care suffer (Folland, Goodman, & Stano, 2016). The capacity to invent and implement health information systems holds the key to the problem’s solution.
Using telemedicine and promoting the use of wireless devices for health maintenance will enable cost-cutting without sacrificing the standard of care and the safety of the patients. The operational foundation of the modern healthcare system still needs to be updated, which is an issue (Kellermann & Jones, 2013). Doctors are only paid when they see the patient in a physical environment, which drives up the cost of care. The issue can be solved by using the telephone and the internet to conduct consultations and improve preventative health services.
A policy based on technological tools for monitoring vital signs and informing patients and healthcare professionals will enhance care quality while lowering costs (Stabile et al., 2013). The pressure on service providers and healthcare services will also be reduced by including the patients in their treatment. A good illustration would be using technology to check blood sugar levels rather than going to a medical facility to receive the services (Sheikh, Sood, & Bates, 2015). Thus, new policies that make use of cutting-edge technologies should be used to govern community health care services.
