The healthcare industry has been primed for healthcare reform and according to GHX, 2014 will bring even more change to the business of healthcare. The company is predicting that 2014 will be a year of great healthcare evolution, not necessarily revolution, with organizations focused on lowering costs while improving patient care. GHX has identified what it considers the biggest trends for the coming year: industry and partnerships, approaches to industry issues, between healthcare trading partners and institutions and having technology to the point of care to gain real-time analytics for better decisions for patient outcomes.

“For years, we’ve heard about how ‘far behind’ healthcare is technologically compared to other industries. To meet the demands of healthcare reform we have to close that gap,” said Bruce Johnson, CEO, GHX. “Over the past few years, we’ve all become smarter practitioners and consumers of healthcare, and I believe we’re on the cusp of something great. The way to mature as a healthy industry is through more deliberate collaboration. We operate in such an integrated business ecosystem that we have to apply the disciplines of working together to deliver on the promise of an effective healthcare system.”

Global Healthcare Exchange, LLC (GHX) is driving costs out of healthcare by transforming the healthcare supply chain. Working with providers and suppliers, GHX is accelerating change by providing a faster, more efficient and collaborative supply chain that will take billions of dollars out of the cost of healthcare.
