Bethesda, Md., Aug. 7, 2014 – Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute, part of Carolinas HealthCare System, will present at a webinar on Aug. 13, hosted by GetWellNetwork®, Inc., the leader in Interactive Patient Care™ (IPC) solutions. During the webinar, Sanger will describe how the GetWellNetwork Ambulatory™ solution enhanced the effectiveness and efficiency of outpatient encounters, leading to a 33 percent reduction in the length of new-patient visits.
Sanger Heart & Vascular manages over 200,000 patient visits each year across five cardiovascular adult and pediatric sub-specialties in 27 ambulatory locations throughout North and South Carolina. This webinar will illustrate how Sanger leverages GetWellNetwork Ambulatory on the iPad® to provide patients with condition-specific information, help them understand their care and complete priority care interventions.
