GetWellNetwork Introduces Ambulatory Solution to Drive Outcomes, Performance in Outpatient Settings
Company extends Interactive Patient Care delivery model to improve patient activation, care coordination across the entire care continuum
Bethesda, Md., February 24, 2014 (HIMSS Booth #2219) – GetWellNetwork®, Inc., the leader in Interactive Patient Care™ (IPC) solutions, today announced the debut of GetWellNetwork Ambulatory. Developed in collaboration with health care systems and patients, GetWellNetwork Ambulatory leverages the patient-centered technology and easy-to-use experience of GetWellNetwork, customized for settings including emergency rooms, ambulatory clinics and treatment centers, surgery centers, urgent care facilities and physician offices. The new SaaS application aligns with GetWellNetwork Inpatient and myGetWellNetwork™, a solution accessible through existing patient portals, to engage patients in the management of their health anytime, anywhere.
Available on mobile and stationary devices, the solution integrates with EHRs such as Epic and Cerner, as well as other health IT systems, to provide personalized information, health care tools and Patient Pathways™ to help patients and their designated support team to understand and participate in their care. Patients can set goals for their ambulatory visit, view educational content about their health and enroll easily in their patient portal to access their medical information at home.
GetWellNetwork Ambulatory also enables patients to provide real-time feedback about their care experience, helping providers and payers address CG-CAHPS areas targeted as priorities. The solution fits into existing clinical workflows and can be deployed across Integrated Delivery Systems for standardized patient education and improved operational performance. Clinicians using GetWellNetwork Ambulatory introduce patients and their families to a longitudinal, dynamic care plan accessible through myGetWellNetwork for ongoing health management following their ambulatory encounter.
