You’re collecting information about your patient’s health, but what are you doing with it? Does it sit—disconnected—in your digital systems? Or does it travel seamlessly between them?

The infographic below shows how hospitals and patients efficiently form a meaningful relationship and why digital connections and education are essential to value-based care.


Patient Portal white paper Hospitals with strong digital relationships and an emphasis on relevant patient education will:

  • Improve patient experience
  • Enhance hospital workflows and staff satisfaction
  • Reduce cost of care for hospitals while improving quality and outcomes
  • Satisfy Meaningful Use and other federal compliance requirements

What that boils down to is better care management. With the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) increasingly tying your hospital’s repayments to how efficiently you manage the entire episode of care, staying connected through digital patient education and access sets you up for success.
