Improving Population Health With Innovative Technology

Healthwise and Patient Prompt Combine Forces to Preview a Powerful New Solution at the HIMSS14 Interoperability Showcase

BOISE, ID -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- Better outcomes and fewer readmissions are expected when patients are engaged with step-by-step support. And now, that support can come just as patients want it: by email, text, voice, or in their personal patient portal.

Healthwise, a nonprofit organization and recognized patient engagement leader, and Patient Prompt, a leader in advanced patient engagement solutions, will demo their newest combined initiative -- a patient engagement solution that extends and automates the reach of managing the health of a population. The preview demonstration will be in the Interoperability Showcase at the HIMSS14 Annual Conference and Exhibition, February 23-27 in Orlando, Florida.

Designed to reach more patients in ways they prefer -- and in ways that are proven to have the highest levels of engagement -- this solution from Healthwise and Patient Prompt helps clinicians stay connected with their at-risk patients well after those patients leave the office or hospital. Patient Prompt's intelligent architecture delivers Healthwise's award-winning solutions directly to patients. Patients' responses trigger outreach protocols such as automatically notifying a health coach if a patient's condition is not improving. Advanced integration will track the interaction back into the patient's medical record.

"We are matching Patient Prompt's proven engagement technology to our patient-friendly decision aids and videos," said Jim Giuffré, Healthwise president and COO. "When Healthwise got its start almost 40 years ago, we could only imagine the possibilities. Today, we are further advancing our mission of helping people make better health decisions."

Succeeding at population health requires coordinated care and the systems to reach, activate, and follow up with patients. Healthwise and Patient Prompt will show how organizations can use technology and information from their electronic medical records and care management platforms to accomplish these goals seamlessly and effectively. Engagement and outcomes improve because patients personally connect and interact with the motivating health education interventions that help them take better care of their health.

"We are delighted to be working with such an innovative and respected leader in population health programs," said Daniel Kube, Patient Prompt Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. "The power of the combined platform is the ability to create focused, high-value, individual health programs and status checks that allow providers and health systems to leverage the power of targeted health content and engagement technology to improve wellness and health across diverse demographics."

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases.

Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that a...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...
Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
