Mobile Health Clinics May Reduce Disparities in Care, Help Companies Reach Business Objectives

  • Jul 08, 2022

    Mobile health clinics can help health care organizations achieve their business objectives and reduce disparities in care, according to a report released on July 6. The researchers involved in the project tell AIS Health, a division of MMIT, that insurers and other payers can benefit by helping care for people who otherwise would not receive treatments and reduce overall spending by improving people’s health over the short and long term.  

    The report was sponsored by the Mobile Healthcare Association, a nonprofit trade group, and Mobile Health Map, an initiative led by Harvard Medical School and MHA to provide an online resource to track, research and analyze mobile health clinics. The researchers conducted interviews via telephone or video conferencing with 25 health care leaders, including executives at Harvard Medical School, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.
