Connecting patients to their care plan and care team in meaningful and engaging ways using mobile, web, and sensor technologies
Improving patient care and outcomes is a common goal for the health care industry. However, the inability to influence patient behavior outside the clinical setting is a major hurdle to achieving this goal.
Recent studies have shown that the total cost of patients’ “failure to follow doctor’s orders” is in excess of $290 billion a year in the U.S. alone. Un-engaged patients who don’t take their prescriptions, ignore their doctor’s care instructions, are unprepared for surgery, or short-change their rehabilitation all contribute to poor outcomes. This “Patient Engagement Gap” represents avoidable health care costs, and closing this gap is one of the single biggest opportunities the industry has to reduce the cost of care.
Our goal at Preventice is to foster patient engagement in their care plans and connect healthcare providers to those that they serve. We enable patients to better follow their prescribed care plans while giving providers improved insight into the current status of their patient population. This helps eliminate the gap between ordinary patient behaviors and optimal patient outcomes.
By creating a continuous connection between patients and health care providers, our solutions strengthen health care outcomes because they can help:
- Avoid hospitalizations
- Reduce re-admittance
- Increase staff efficiency
- Speed time to intervention
