Improving Population Health With Innovative Technology

Healthwise and Patient Prompt Combine Forces to Preview a Powerful New Solution at the HIMSS14 Interoperability Showcase

BOISE, ID -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- Better outcomes and fewer readmissions are expected when patients are engaged with step-by-step support. And now, that support can come just as patients want it: by email, text, voice, or in their personal patient portal.

Healthwise, a nonprofit organization and recognized patient engagement leader, and Patient Prompt, a leader in advanced patient engagement solutions, will demo their newest combined initiative -- a patient engagement solution that extends and automates the reach of managing the health of a population. The preview demonstration will be in the Interoperability Showcase at the HIMSS14 Annual Conference and Exhibition, February 23-27 in Orlando, Florida.

Designed to reach more patients in ways they prefer -- and in ways that are proven to have the highest levels of engagement -- this solution from Healthwise and Patient Prompt helps clinicians stay connected with their at-risk patients well after those patients leave the office or hospital. Patient Prompt's intelligent architecture delivers Healthwise's award-winning solutions directly to patients. Patients' responses trigger outreach protocols such as automatically notifying a health coach if a patient's condition is not improving. Advanced integration will track the interaction back into the patient's medical record.

"We are matching Patient Prompt's proven engagement technology to our patient-friendly decision aids and videos," said Jim Giuffré, Healthwise president and COO. "When Healthwise got its start almost 40 years ago, we could only imagine the possibilities. Today, we are further advancing our mission of helping people make better health decisions."

Succeeding at population health requires coordinated care and the systems to reach, activate, and follow up with patients. Healthwise and Patient Prompt will show how organizations can use technology and information from their electronic medical records and care management platforms to accomplish these goals seamlessly and effectively. Engagement and outcomes improve because patients personally connect and interact with the motivating health education interventions that help them take better care of their health.

"We are delighted to be working with such an innovative and respected leader in population health programs," said Daniel Kube, Patient Prompt Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. "The power of the combined platform is the ability to create focused, high-value, individual health programs and status checks that allow providers and health systems to leverage the power of targeted health content and engagement technology to improve wellness and health across diverse demographics."

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
