Leveraging Digital Tools to Treat Patients Along the Continuum of Care

Fritz Haimberger
July 5, 2018

When patients begin a course of treatment whether it's an urgent care visit for strep throat, an inpatient hospital procedure, or taking a daily medication for acid reflux they expect a care team that will follow through on their treatment until their desired outcome is attained.

Now more than ever, as many systems implement value-based care models, communication across the care continuum is vital to the success of a healthcare organization and the health of their patients.

Digital tools play a key role in ensuring the quality of patient care, helping establish open communication between clinicians and patients that can reduce the number of additional appointments and even readmittance. Even better, when an organization can facilitate communication across multiple technology platforms, including mobile devices, their patients know their care team is only a click or tap away.

Best Practices in Care Delivery

On July 11th at 2:00 p.m. ET, I will sit down with two leading healthcare executives for a webinar to discuss how digital tools like Appian can help improve patient and clinician interactions across the care continuum.

I'll have the pleasure of speaking alongside PJ Goren, Operating Officer for the Center for Health Delivery Innovation at Nemours Children's Health System, and Dr. Vishwanath Anantraman, Chief Information Architect at Northwell Health. Together we'll discuss their experiences with pilot programs designed to reduce costs and improve care, and how they measured those successes.
