LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HealthLoop, the patient experience leader, today announced that it will begin exclusive previews of its new patient reported outcomes platform at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting from March 24–28 in Las Vegas. The new technology, combined with HealthLoop’s patient engagement platform, makes it easy for busy doctors to follow up on their patients outside the clinic and receive quality, timely data on their recovery.
HealthLoop’s platform for patient engagement has grown to be the trusted technology leader for top U.S. health systems and medical groups. The company helps doctors provide an exceptional customer service experience for patients and participate in new care performance and patient outcomes measurements, which are major elements of U.S. health reform. A full eight out of 10 invited patients choose to engage in the HealthLoop system, which tracks clinical progress, sets health goals, encourages recovery activities, answers common questions, and monitors clinical areas of concern.
“With the growing swell of value-based care, measuring patient reported outcomes will become a cornerstone of quality and revenue cycle initiatives for all practices. It’s a natural addition to HealthLoop’s patient engagement platform as we’ve given patients a reason to engage and participate in a shared journey to better health,” said Todd Johnson, CEO of HealthLoop. “Helping patients get to a better outcome is the foundation of HealthLoop’s success. We can track and guide patients to get to the best outcome while helping doctors show how much they care about their patients.”
This new feature sends validated survey instruments to patients before and after surgery to measure each patient’s progress. Furthermore, the engagement platform makes it easy to ensure that no patient is left behind.
Previews of the new HealthLoop patient reported outcomes platform are available at AAOS booth #268 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Official launch of the patient reported outcomes platform is planned for May 2015.
HealthLoop keeps doctors and patients connected between visits with clinical information that is insightful, actionable, and engaging. HealthLoop’s peer-reviewed follow-up plans automate the routine aspects of care while tracking patient progress and monitoring clinical areas of concern, boosting efficiency, and improving outcomes through patient engagement. HealthLoop is a Mountain View, CA–based company, founded by Dr. Jordan Shlain, a primary care doctor in San Francisco.
