Bridging the gap between
technology and care
Unquestionably, more engaged patients result in better adherence to prescribed care and improved health outcomes. Health information materials play a vital role in supporting patient decision making for preventative strategies and self-management of chronic conditions. Our population health platform permits health education materials to be distributed via email, text or via a patient portal according to the individual’s preference. Naturally, tailored health information can empower individuals and motivate them to be more involved in their health. Our experience has taught us that well-informed patients are more likely to adopt longer-term healthy behaviors, such as exercise, modification of diet, and quitting smoking.
Improved Communication and Shared Decision Making
We’ve seamlessly integrated patient communication features that allow for providers to work collaboratively to assist patients over various touch points in the care process. A combination of health alerts, prompts and messaging features can be used to facilitate improved communication between providers and patients. These features benefit the patient by helping the patient better understand their available treatment options and develop a clearer perspective of their personal health risks.
Health Management Patient Portal
In addition, our health management system also offers a convenient patient portal. The portal provides a patient access to their own medical records and health data, along with an ability to share that information securely with trusted health partners allowing them to feel more in control of their own health.
Data from biometric devices, such as those used in remote patient monitoring, disease management and care transitions programs can also be incorporated into the patient portal presenting even greater opportunities for feedback from clinicians.
Put simply, more opportunities for dialog leads to improved, shared decision making, which in turn allows patients to play a greater role in their own health.
