Population Health

FACT: Four determinants of health account for significant amount of all deaths in the world – smoking, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and alcohol use.

FACT: Very negligible population on the earth do all of the relatively “simple” things they should to stay healthy – i.e., exercise for 20 minutes 3 times a week, don’t smoke, eat fruits and vegetables regularly, wear seat belts regularly, and remain at their appropriate BMI.

FACT: Cost of missed prevention opportunities and inefficiently delivered medical services cost significantly to payers of healthcare.

Expertise of Anik Technologies understands above facts which helps the organization to identify key concepts for population health as Chronic Care Model, Disease Management, Patient Engagement, Clinical Decision Making and Self Care.

Health IT Solutions provided by Anik Technologies addresses all the key factors.

The Chronic Care Model, as defined by the organization is a well-established organizational framework for chronic care management and clinical practice improvement. The system takes a comprehensive, multisystem approach that is especially well suited to working with vulnerable populations.

Disease Management, a system provided by Anik Technologies is coordinated healthcare interventions and communications for populations with conditions in which self-care efforts are significant, supports physician-patient relationships, emphasizes prevention of complications through evidence-based medicine and patient empowerment, and evaluates clinical, humanistic, and economic outcomes.

Patient Engagement designed by Anik Technologies refers to patients playing more active roles in their care and advocating for themselves. It seeks to improve the areas of health literacy, clinical decision-making, self-care, and patient safety.

The System designed by Anik Technologies facilitates patients to get engaged in Clinical Decision-Making. This is done by providing patient decision aids, training in communication skills for clinicians, coaching and question prompts for patients.

The necessary ingredients for the Self-Care are also provided by the system which includes self-management education, self-monitoring and self-administered treatment, self-help groups and peer support, patient access to personal medical information, and patient-centered tele-med and e-health.
