Donald Trump did his best to put the healthcare industry in a tailspin when he uprooted Obamacare. No one can deny the fact that healthcare is an expensive and frustrating topic. The United States healthcare system is one of the worst systems in the world when it comes to treating patients who need help paying for proper care. But all the flaws and complications that seem to be inherent in healthcare are not stopping companies like Amazon and CVS from getting their feet wet in the healthcare industry. Amazon is investing in the medical equipment part of the industry, and CVS may buy health insurance giant Aetna.
Those companies know proper healthcare is the number one priority for the aging Baby Boomers. And it a necessity for the Millennial generation. But trying to put a timely healthcare system in place that is efficient, cost-effective, and relevant when it comes to patient needs is not easy, according to Drew Madden. Drew Madden is one of the managing partners of Evergreen Healthcare Partners. Madden is a seasoned veteran in the healthcare space. He’s an avid electronic medical records proponent. And he is one of the healthcare entrepreneurs who understand what it takes to bring about change in the healthcare industry. When Madden was president of Nordic Consulting Partners, he was instrumental in putting Nordic on the healthcare map in terms of implementing Epic implementation services and incorporating various migration strategies.
Trying to get healthcare providers to implement electronic medical records is a big challenge because some doctors say electronic systems are time-consuming and hard to understand. Those doctors say electronic medical records are for bureaucrats, not physicians. Public healthcare systems across the country are slowing down because of new information-technology systems. But Drew Madden believes those healthcare systems don’t get the help they need from companies like Evergreen. In order to get EMR platforms running smoothly, healthcare providers need entrepreneurs who can guide them through the EMR process, according to Madden. Madden and his Evergreen partners are the entrepreneurs who are providing the guidance healthcare providers need to focus on other healthcare issues.
