    Nine Healthcare Apps Healthcare Executives Wish They Had


    “If I could snap my fingers and be in the application development and marketing business, the app I’d take to market would be the one that facilitates the operation of association health plans (AHPs) – call it EasyAHP. In January, the U.S. Department of Labor released a proposed rule intended to expand access to AHPs in response to President Trump’s recent executive order on the subject. I’m confident that there is a substantial pool of small employers who are anxious to break the lock that large employers have on negotiating meaningful discounts on healthcare premiums and driving innovation in plan design. My EasyAHP app would make it easier to deploy such a plan to employees. The app would list in-network providers in the geographic vicinity of the user, filtered by specialty, quality ratings, customer satisfaction, and wait time for an appointment. It would enable users to drilldown and see quality data by procedure, volume, and average price for plan participants. For hospitals and other care sites, it would bring together data on quality and patient satisfaction from the many fragmented sources that currently exist. This app could bring us closer to the market-driven care model we so desperately need to make healthcare more consumer-friendly and affordable.”
