TAKING PATIENT HANDOUTS TO A NEW LEVEL
According to a MedTera study involving 7,000 respondents conducted in September 2010, 95% indicated that they are looking for more comprehensive information about disease management, and 77% said they hadn't received any written information about their illness or medications directly from their physician.
Patients want information. It should come from their health care team.
LEVEL 1: PATIENT HANDOUTS
Integrate specific health content for your EMR, PHR and pharmacy systems. Educate patients and provide answers about conditions, drugs, laboratory tests and other common questions. Connect point-of-care information to other MediResource solutions such as online health portals, digital health coaching or mobile applications.
LEVEL 2: PATIENTCONNECT® - SEQUENTIAL PATIENT MESSAGING
PatientConnect® sequential messaging is a powerful method to pull patients through a series of tailored health messages. Each patient encounter provides a message that builds off the last one, and over time creates a continuum that impacts behavior. Research shows that 80% of patients don't remember what they were told during a clinic visit. Of the 20% that remember instructions, only half of those remembered correctly. PatientConnect® addresses these retention and knowledge transfer issues.
PatientConnect® EMR. We provide standardized, sequential health information that over time improves knowledge, confidence and self-management skills. At your option, use our personalization platform to integrate your own tailored messages and customized instructions. For example, if you want to add information on a specific colonoscopy preparation, referral instructions, follow-up instructions, checklists, over-the-counter (OTC) medications or other information to a standardized patient communication, now you can do it. PatientConnect® allows you to create tailored patient messages with clear instructions that won't be forgotten or misinterpreted. It is a powerful communication tool that is easy to administer, reduces time in providing repetitive information and improves overall patient care.
PatientConnect® Pharmacy. Providing a unique service that improves patient health and medication adherence is not just good practice, it's good business. PatientConnect® integrates with your pharmacy management system to allow instant printing of patient information at the point of sale. Our medication-to-condition algorithms go beyond basic drug facts, expanding your capability to provide information on chronic diseases and impact health over time. Each patient printout can present multiple sections, including medication adherence messaging, companion product information, recommended OTC and front-shop products and highlights for special offers or events. Those using PatientConnect® have realized an increase in prescription refill volume, increased companion sales and improved customer loyalty.
