Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
“Patient Karen” recently underwent joint replacement surgery at Parkview Medical Center and has some concerns. She’s experiencing post-operative side effects, including constantly feeling cold and difficulty sleeping.
Karen receives weekly electronic messages with critical care instructions and information from UICarePath | Joints, a customizable patient engagement solution used by Parkview Medical Center to keep patients on track and prepared—before, during and after their surgeries. She voiced her post-op concerns directly to Parkview’s medical staff and they addressed her issues immediately by adding them into their UICarePath | Joints electronic storyboards.
That kind of real-time engagement not only helps Karen; it helps future joint replacement patients, as well.
With recent healthcare reforms and cost-containment policies, patient engagement is more important than ever as providers strive to improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes, while protecting their own bottom line. Patient engagement has been difficult in the past; there simply weren’t enough resources for communicating and interacting with patients about their care once they left a hospital or doctor’s office.
UICarePath | Joints harnesses today’s mobile technology to help healthcare providers engage their patients in real-time, to co-manage their own health in concert with their physician. And, as Karen’s story illustrates, UICarePath | Joints provides patients with critical, timely information that can be updated as health issues and concerns arise.
UICarePath | Joints extends patient care beyond medical appointments and in-patient stays, improving health outcomes and satisfaction while reducing unnecessary costs of care by up to 30%.
