Under a theme of “Healthcare Champions,” HIMSS 2019 called for a renewed focus on what matters most in healthcare: the patient. Prepared Health’s CEO Ashish Shah and COO Tim Coulter attended HIMSS and shared their take on the importance of family caregivers and how to stay connected with patients as care moves outside of the hospital and into the home and community.
Recent advances in healthcare interoperability, the process of freely exchanging information among electronic systems, are important but still incomplete. When you look at all of the coordination required in a patient’s journey from the hospital to home, there is a glaring omission: the home.
Family caregivers are a valuable part of a patient's care team. We’ve seen that the social determinants of health data emerging from the home--day-to-day care tasks like home health visits, physical therapy or how a patient is responding to medication--have a bigger chance of impacting outcomes and preventing readmissions than traditional clinical data. But family caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones on a daily basis often are left out of the conversation.
Prepared Health's digital enTouch network makes it easy to link your agency, family members and others on the care team, so you can update a patient's progress and quickly share it with the entire team. Register to watch our webinar highlighting the power of engaging the family caregiver and how you can leverage the enTouch platform.
