Axial Exchange, Inc., a pioneer in using mobile apps to deepen the patient’s role in improving outcomes, and Becker’s Hospital Review, a leading healthcare trade publication, today announced the results of the first National Patient Engagement Ranking at the Becker’s Hospital Review 5th Annual Meeting, in Chicago. The national ranking evaluated provider organizations across the United States, ranking hospitals’ patient engagement efforts based on an analysis of publicly available data. In the inaugural national ranking, Mayo Clinic hospitals (Eau Claire Hospital, Albert Lee and Rochester St. Mary’s Hospital), Medical Center of the Rockies and Roper Hospital received the highest scores of all 3,077 U.S. hospitals assessed.
“We’re excited to announce the results of the first national patient engagement ranking with Axial Exchange,” said Lindsey Dunn, editor in chief of Becker’s Hospital Review. “In reviewing the results, it’s clear that hospitals and health systems are working toward providing more patient-centered care, and we hope this ranking encourages provider organizations to continue to take a proactive stance on patient engagement initiatives in forthcoming years.”
To determine scores, Axial Exchange and Becker’s Hospital Review evaluated provider organizations on readmissions, patient satisfaction, and the extent to which they offered information and tools that helped engage patients in self care. The full methodology can be found at www.axialexchange.com/engagement/methodology/.
The highest ranking a hospital could receive in the national ranking was a score of 100. Three hospitals within Mayo Clinic, including its flagship campus in Minnesota and two hospitals within Mayo Clinic Health System, received the highest-ranking scores, all nearing 90 points, securing the top three spots in the ranking. Loveland, Colorado-based Medical Center of the Rockies followed with a score of 85.
“The prior success of our regional rankings laid a foundation for taking the program to a national level,” said Joanne Rohde, CEO of Axial Exchange. “As hospitals adopt health IT to monitor patient data to meet goals and objectives for Meaningful Use and other regulatory requirements, providers must also find ways to connect and engage patients between encounters to improve patient health and clinical outcomes, while decreasing readmission rates. With the support of Becker’s Hospital Review, the national results gauge the reach and commitment of organizations that do just that.”

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
