The Star Ratings Debate
I was honored to represent UbiCare at the 2019 American Hospital Association Leadership Summit in San Diego. I really enjoyed the chance to make connections and to share our work with so many healthcare innovators and leaders.
The sessions and keynotes at the Summit this year were powerful, focusing on the common theme of disrupting and transforming healthcare. Hospitals are being pushed to consider their future roles as they move toward value-based care —and the work involved in preventative healthcare.
How can hospitals take a calculated leap to innovations that respond to immediate care and cost needs, while also laying the groundwork for preventative healthcare and continued growth? What should the role of hospitals be to best meet the needs of the communities they serve? Read on for some takeaways from the conference that focus on these questions and the direction of healthcare.
When patients leave the four walls of the hospital or their doctor’s office, they stop being “patients”, and go back to being people managing the details of their daily lives. Patients manage their care on their own most of the time, and the decisions they make impact outcomes and cost.
That’s where digital patient education comes in.
Our infographic shows how digital patient education bridges the gap between time as a patient and everyday life.
Measuring the impact of a digital education program and the benefits of patient engagement can be challenging. Statistics such as open and click-through rates indicate how patients are interacting with digital messaging and help prove the value of a patient engagement solution. But how do you know whether your patients take actions based on what they’re learning from those messages?
Ongoing patient-reported feedback and data about digital interactions provide a deeper understanding of where your patients are on their care journey—and what they need.
