Healthcare Professionals Praise Benefits of Hoy Health at Two Leading Public Health Conferences Addressing Health Disparities
Hoy Health participated in the National Hispanic Medical Association conference and American Muslim Health Professional conference
In April, Hoy Health had the honor of participating at the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) conference in Washington D.C., and American Muslim Health Professionals (AMHP) conference at Harvard University.
During our panel discussion we focused on the value of using technology to provide access to care to underserved populations, sharing the podium with other service providers to discuss important insights into healthcare disparities.
First, physicians now face an escalating number of underserved patients who don’t have the means to pay for services, have no insurance coverage, and/or fail to have the knowledge or language skills required to navigate a complex healthcare system.
Conference attendees were excited to learn how we are using technology to provide a full array of healthcare services that empower underserved populations to access quality care and help physicians better care for patients who cannot afford care or are uninsured or undocumented.
Attendees recognized that Hoy Health takes proactive steps rather than simply discussing the challenges.
Our solution addresses a key issue: the lack of primary care physicians with a Hispanic background. One reason for this is the number of years invested in and high cost of earning a medical degree. Those who do go into the field of medicine tend to choose a specialty that will increase their revenue generation to quickly recoup expenses. This leaves primary care without enough Hispanic doctors to serve the communities they came from.
Hoy Health solutions address these disparities by drastically simplifying access to quality health and wellness products, including access to Spanish-speaking physicians and prescription gift cards, that enable individuals to get low cost medications and better manage chronic health conditions.
Similar to the NHMA conference, the AMHP conference partly focused on access to care for underserved populations. Attendees learned that medical technology is not about simply developing the latest instruments, devices and monitoring systems, but to provide access to care for all – no matter their insurance coverage. This sparked a number of discussions about how these technologies can also serve the areas of ophthalmology, trauma and dental care.
Another key point raised centered around data privacy and privacy law. Everyone agreed that patient data privacy is paramount. Many praised Hoy Health as a beacon for other such companies to follow best practices in managing and protecting patient information and privacy.
Our HIPAA-compliant solutions effectively improve access to affordable Rx drugs, chronic condition management programs, and telehealth/virtual care.
