Patient Centered Care

Increasing Patient Engagement and Remote Patient Care

How can healthcare organizations extend high-quality care into the home and beyond to improve customer satisfaction and increase patient engagement while reducing administrative time and costs?

Intel® Technology Powers Healthcare Innovation

Women's Medical University Institute of Advanced Biomedical Engineering & Science uses Intel® RealSense™ technology at their brain surgery operating room. The gesture-based computer operation allows the surgeon to control images and other information without leaving the operating room, providing more accurate and safer surgery.

Clinical Workflow

The use of smart, connected, and often mobile solutions that facilitate communication among patients, providers, and administrators is growing in hospital and clinical settings. These clinical workflow solutions reveal meaningful insights and improve health outcomes through better collaboration. Improve quality of care, increase operational efficiency, and lower costs by making relevant data easier to access and analyze from anywhere in the hospital.

Global collaboration involving sophisticated 2D and 3D graphics can be cumbersome. Plus, intellectual property becomes threatened when versions multiply. Hosted remote workstations offer the superior alternative of a flexible, unified platform.

Clinical Productivity

Inpatient systems efficiency, collaborative clinical workflows, individually customized care, and clinician productivity must all be advanced to improve the quality of care and minimize the amount of time, effort, and money patients need to spend seeking effective treatment.

We must aim to reduce the time patients spend waiting for diagnosis, testing, completion of documentation, clinicians on rounds, and for clinicians to communicate with one another. Collaborative clinical workflows and individually customized treatments that take advantage of all patient data, including genomics, can enable higher quality care, delivered more efficiently, for more effective healing.

Patient Engagement and Precise Data

New technologies are starting to extend healthcare organizations’ ability to integrate mobile solutions into their IT infrastructures to enable wider access to EHR and other data while meeting security requirements. Enhancements in quality care throughout the hospital and beyond- offering increased patient engagement, and supporting providers’ access to information where and when it matters most.

Patient Engagement: Intel and Dell Collaborate with MEDITECH for Healthcare Cloud

Solutions from Meditech and Intel® processor-based Dell devices help improve patient engagement and outcomes while reducing costs. Accessing and making sense of personal health-related data allows people to obtain a "big-picture" understanding of what they can do to improve their own health, and accelerate the pace of medical research that could benefit us all.

 

A patient’s medical needs can change quickly. Real-time, mobile EHRs enable hospital workers to deliver care based on up-to-the-minute information, leading to both better medical outcomes, and increased job productivity.

Remote Patient Care

Today, consumers expect to engage with their healthcare providers in ways that do not require a face-to-face visit. Being able to connect with patients at home, via mobile, wearables and other medical devices with highly secure voice, chat, text and video capabilities, can be a life-changing benefit to those who are recovering from surgery or a recent hospitalization. Remote monitoring supports more effective health management through identify risk, enabling early intervention, coaching, reducing hospitalizations and overall healthcare costs.

We are at the cusp of a revolution in wearables and other connected devices that monitor wellness by collecting longitudinal personal data. Through wearables, other connected, wellness-monitoring devices, and the help of care teams, people can create custom health baselines for themselves. They can be alerted about deviations, call for preventive measures or an acute intervention. They can learn to boost fitness, manage conditions, hasten recoveries, connect to peers, find the right care provider, or save out-of-pocket costs.

Mobilizing Care

Mobile healthcare teams use Intel-powered devices throughout their shift, from the dispatch center to the durable laptops and tablets, consolidating patient data. This includes scanning paperwork and patient information from the hospital or EKG strips. The ability to transfer patient information wirelessly to the hospital before the patient arrives can save precious minutes in life-or-death situations.

Personalized Medicine Will Revolutionize Healthcare, If We Don’t Get in Its Way 

What is personalized medicine? It’s tailoring the medical decisions, practices, interventions, and treatments to the individual patient based on their predicted response or risk of disease. Said another way, personalized medicine is taking a patient’s health data and using it to treat them like an individual with unique health needs.

As we move into the world of personalized medicine, read about the four things every organization should work on to make sure they’re prepared.
