Here at Klara, we are constantly pushing our colleagues, stakeholders and customers to see the future of healthcare - through a more efficient, patient-centered approach.

Take a look at our curated list of Top 12 Healthcare Quotes to inspire your decision making.

1. โ€œIn 10 years the electronic medical record will be the minor player, in terms of where a personโ€™s health history lives. Most of that information will be kept on the phone or in a secure cloud, and the patient will be highly engaged with collecting, curating and sharing that data. Most doctor visits will be like calling up a YouTube meets virtual human docs and there will also be an aspect of virtual reality.โ€

- Leslie Saxon

2. โ€œFor the first time really weโ€™re discovering physicians are expressing much more openness and willingness to consider information about their patients coming from DIY devices.โ€

- Ceci Connolly, Leader of PwCโ€™s Health Research Institute

3. โ€œYou have these healthcare systems who are basically sticking to a portal and theyโ€™re kind of looking to their health IT vendors -- who theyโ€™re already paying lots of money -- to roll out mobile apps, telemonitoring solutions, and things like that. And the vendors are like, 'The doctors and the hospitals they tend to want things to get them the meaningful use dollars.' So itโ€™s like, whoโ€™s going to move first to these newer technologies?โ€

- Naveen Rao, Analyst, Chilmark Research

4. โ€œTraditionally, remote monitoring is seen as a short-to-medium term adjunct to regular care to empower patients for self-management following hospitalization. Long-term use is not usually feasible due to cost. However, based on our findings, we speculate that increasing the duration of the program to enable patients to develop self-competency may improve outcomes.โ€

- Dr. Stephen Agboola, Massachusetts General Hospital

5. โ€œThe first thing we ought to recognize is that mobile is now part of the fabric โ€” every day in everybodyโ€™s life. So if youโ€™re not looking at mobile solutions, then youโ€™re not really looking at all solutions.โ€ Mal Postings Global CTO โ€” IT Advisory Ernst & Young

6. โ€œYou have to understand what are they worried about, what are their fears, what are they trying to do? If we donโ€™t engage with them that way, it doesnโ€™t matter what technology we use.โ€

- Roy Rosin, Chief Innovation Officer, Penn Medicine

7. โ€œThe irony of reducing waste and improving the health of the employer-sponsored population -- for over 100 million Americans -- is that it's not a health problem, but rather a marketing and IT problem.โ€

- Josh Stevens, CEO, Keas

8. โ€œThatโ€™s going to be the story for the next year or so: [digital health] moving from a curiosity, to a research tool, to an actual mainstream, accepted clinical tool. I think itโ€™s very exciting.โ€

- Corey Bridges, CEO, LifeMap Solutions

9. โ€œWe believe consumer health technologies โ€” apps, wearables, self-diagnosis tools โ€” have the potential to strengthen the patient-physician connection and improve health outcomes.โ€

- Dr. Glen Stream, Chairman, Family Medicine for Americaโ€™s Health

10. โ€œ[Physicians] are going to look at you sideways if you ask them to align, but if you ask them to be the leaders and determine what the future will look like, they will rise to the challenge.โ€

โ€- Lucy Hammerberg, MD, chief quality officer of Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Ill.

11. โ€œValue-based care is the right step towards a quality focused care. Value is measured by either improvement in (1) quality of life or (2) length of life for the patient. The individual patientโ€™s perception of these two measures are a major factor in the determinant of value, allowing the patient to be a vital member of the care team.Therefore, the success of value-based care depends on doctor-patient communication.โ€

- Dr. Simon Lorenz, Co-Founder of Klara

#12 is a nice bonus from a classic innovator

  1. โ€œIt is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.โ€

โ€- Charles Darwin

Simon Lorenz, Ph.D., Co-Founder, Klara

Coming from a family of doctors, Simon was destined to become a doctor too but became intrigued instead by the business and services side of healthcare. He decided to join one of the leading management consulting companies in Germany, working to improve efficiency and performance in healthcare as well as in other industries. In parallel, he wrote his Ph.D. thesis on performance optimization in hospitals, which was later published as a book. In 2013, he and Simon Bolz founded Klara with the mission to transform communication in healthcare, so every patient can receive great care.
