The panel walked attendees through the successes and challenges of internal innovations.
David is a Mayo anesthesiologist who built MC Health Connection, a cloud-based architecture designed to alter care models and improve the patient experience. Using an iPad, patients, family members and physicians can track their progress inside and out of the hospital.
Patient communities are emerging as key influencers and disrupting the healthcare landscape. They are impacting strategies, policies, and setting the stage for new patient-centric innovations. Patients are now sought after thought leaders influencing the way healthcare systems think about and interact with patients and prodding them to improve the patient experience. Join us as ePatient judges rate new technology exclusively from the patient perspective and innovators build the perspective of patients into the innovations designed to serve them.The ultimate goal is to incorporate the voice of patient into the design, development or enhancement of technology being developed by the healthcare community and move away from the notion: “If you build it they will come”. As each innovator pitches their concept or technology, our patient panelists will ask targeted questions based on their experiences to understand how the innovation uniquely responds to patient needs and how it will reach patients. Patient panelists will score the technology based on the following categories:
– How well does it define and solve a problem?
– Patient User Experience
– Data Handling
– Engagement/retention – Is the patient going to be motivated to use this product/service? How sustainable is this solution?
– Connectivity to other systems and/or healthcare team
David will show the NudgeRx platform that uses a combination of internet, email, text messaging and phone calls to help patients follow their daily discharge plans for up to 90 days post-op. It’s all about reducing readmissions.
We’ll explore the tools, applications and devices that are stimulating communication between patients and providers to effectively educate patients, save time and increase adherence improving overall health outcomes.
