The triage functionality and symptom management pathways that this platform offers are going to make a big difference for our patients and our staff.
(PRWEB) April 09, 2018
Oregon Oncology Specialists (OOS) provides cancer care for more than 7,300 patients across four locations in the Salem, Oregon area. As the practice faces the new complexities of value-based programs, it quickly identified the need for a technology solution that would enable staff to formalize the triage process, offer quick intervention to patients in need and easily document and surface their activities to the care team along the way. To do that, they are leveraging the power of patient relationship management technology (PRM) to deliver coordinated, proactive care.
The implementation of Navigating Cancer’s PRM solution also allows OOS to offer extra support and tools for engagement to patients - many of whom are prescribed oral oncolytics that are administered at home. The practice can retire outdated manual processes and systems and move to a more proactive care model including remote monitoring and the automatic delivery of patient education.
“The triage functionality and symptom management pathways that this platform offers are going to make a big difference for our patients and our staff,” said Erin Wylam, Chief Operating Officer. “Incoming patient needs can be proactively and quickly addressed. We are confident this will help us provide better care while reducing costs.”
Gena Cook, CEO of Navigating Cancer, said of the partnership, “It’s great to see another innovative practice recognize that viability in today’s healthcare is directly related to patient engagement and outcomes and technology is a necessary component to delivering really coordinated care.”
