'Nothing would improve the health of a population, and decrease healthcare costs, more than having greater engagement of individuals in their healthcare'
BON HealthWatch, Pioneers of Population Health since 2005.
Chronic care should be the focus of population health, and while data, analytics, and interoperability are important... nothing happens without patient engagement. The right message, at the right time, designed to support one's care plan and improve both outcomes and satisfaction. As populations grow larger, it becomes clear that technology is, and will be, an essential tool to support and foster that regular communication. Not to replace it. The landscape is changing in healthcare, so too are patient populations, and the proprietary nature of technology has not been kind to healthcare organizations now looking to collaborate. Of all the great technology out there, the one proven, effective, and ubiquitous method of communication remains to be clear spoken language. Phone calls designed to support one's care plan, helping caregivers provide a higher quality of preventive care... anytime, anywhere.
BON HealthWatch was developed to be a more effective and accepted way to engage, monitor, and measure any population.
Regardless of what technology you now have, we can seamlessly augment any chronic care program, extend regular preventive care in-between visits... so the goal of comprehensive, coordinated, patient-centered care can be finally realized.
Population health: to define, engage, and measure outcomes. It's fundamental to reaching the Triple Aim. A strong telephonic program is critical to any population health program, and is the most simple, effective, and efficient telemonitoring intervention. Timely, interactive calls allow a caregiver the ability to proactively manage the health of a patient or population over time, significantly improving outcomes and patient satisfaction, while allowing care to be focused on those in need.
Nothing will replace a nurse visit, but chronic and/or discharged populations are overwhelming our healthcare system. Nothing happens until the EHR data is used to 1) define a population, 2) engage and monitor the patients, then 3) measure and improve outcomes. We essentially triage a large population to allow primary care to focus on only those individuals in need, rather than the entire population. Improvements in performance, efficiency, and cost reduction become obvious.
Finally, there is a solution supports true population health, and meets the triple aim.
Telehealth can be costly and complex, so our voice technology was designed with the end user in mind, simple, effective, easy to use, easy to implement. Our approach supports the continuous care of one individual, and scales to thousands.
We have expertise in several critical areas including:
I. 'Proactive' Population Health & Chronic Disease Management
II. Discharge Follow Up in Care Transitions
III. Coordinated Patient-Centered Care
Our passion and focus in these key areas led to the development of critical new technology. We've taken interactive voice response technology to a whole new level, allowing already proven technology to be most effective, and a most accepted. Inform, reinforce, and collect information on a regular and scheduled basis to prompt self-care, allow for more focused care, and early intervention. Unlimited flexibility and customization to stand alone, or augment any program, as we are 'vendor agnostic', with no hardware to become obsolete, or software to learn, and we integrate with any existing EHR.
Rediscovering the lost art of voice communication. Our interactive voice solution will enable any provider regular interaction and data collection to and from any size population, and given that 85% of consumers over the age of 50 do not have a smart phone or Wifi, This may be the only non-intrusive way to reach them effectively.
