What is a Connected CarePath™?
Much like a GPS helps you navigate through city streets, Wellbe’s Connected CarePaths™ engage patients with step-by-step navigation through each stage of the episode of care. Plans begin in the physician’s office, work through all the pre-admission requirements, continue through discharge and recovery.
Patients get timely instructions (can include graphics or videos), decision-support tools, preparation checklists and feedback surveys – all in one convenient online location. They get prompts and email reminders as they are needed. Patients can also include their personal caregivers to participate and assist them.
How do patients experience a Connected CarePath™?
It’s simple. Patients just use a browser to log in – either on their PCs, tablets or other mobile devices. Everything they need to learn and do for their procedure is presented in one convenient online location and options are available to involve their personal caregivers. At each stage of the treatment they get the guidance, instructions, decision support and feedback they need to make progress. All of the steps are presented in simple checklists – with email reminders – that keep them on track. Wellbe’s Connected CarePaths™ bring together exactly what the patient and provider need to ensure a productive experience with great outcomes.
How does the Wellbe solution help hospitals?
Hospitals are undergoing a transformative shift in their care models. Facing new cost pressures from reduced reimbursements and increased expectations from savvy patients that want more convenient access to their healthcare information, they need affordable new solutions to reduce the cost of episodic care and improve the patient experience. Providers use Wellbe’s Integrated Care Delivery platform to transform their delivery models. By enabling their patients with Connected CarePaths™ they can re-shape, improve, monitor, and measure the patient experience through the entire cycle of care.
Why should hospitals give patients online access to a Connected CarePath™?
Hospitals distinguish themselves by offering online options that consumers are coming to expect from their health providers. Like online banking and online shopping, patients increasingly want convenient access to health management tools that can inform and enable them to achieve their health goals. With Wellbe’s system, hospitals can now create online treatment support for their patients.
What do you mean by CarePath Automation™?
Care teams rely on CarePath Automation™ to handle patient education, decision support, communications, and data collection. By providing these capabilities online in a self-service model, teams can improve nurse and staff productivity, streamline and speed up procedures, and reduce or eliminate the cost of many paper-based processes. Teams and their surgeons also get up-to-date reports on functional outcomes data (pre- and post-surgery), patient satisfaction scores, and dozens of other data inputs that they can use for quality reporting and performance improvements.
What kind of data can I collect with Wellbe?
Our forms engine is completely customizable so we can collect any kind of patient-reported data you want! Our current customers collect data on medications, home assessments, patient preparedness and satisfaction, discharge destination and more. We can also easily collect patient-reported outcomes (PROs) using any standardized measurement tool, some examples include: PROMIS, SF-12, SF-36, HOOS/KOOS, Oxford, Womac, etc.
Why do hospitals choose Wellbe over alternative solutions?
Hospitals turn to Wellbe because our solution is flexible, affordable, and produces meaningful results. A single investment can support a broad range of episodes of care across multiple departments. The system is cloud-based so there is no impact on IT resources. And it drives improvements in key performance metrics like length of stay, patient satisfaction, program quality and episode cost.
How long does it take to implement the Wellbe solution?
Wellbe’s solutions are web-based, which means we don’t need to involve your IT department in the process. Clients can start enrolling patients in their Connected CarePath™ after a 90-day implementation.
