Zynx Health announced that it has published new order set and care plan guidelines to aid clinicians in the treatment of patients diagnosed with monkeypox. Created by the Zynx Clinical Team and based on recommendations from World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the content is available as a single, downloadable PDF on the Zynx Health website. Given the public health emergency, this content is being made available at no cost.

“As monkeypox cases continue to rise, and with hospitals still facing shortfalls in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Zynx clinicians have developed and deployed this comprehensive order set and care plan bundle to alleviate the burden of researching the underlying evidence and then building the associated clinical decision support from scratch,” said Chuck Tuchinda, MD, president of Zynx Health. “The monkeypox content on the Zynx site is comprehensive, evidence-based, and ready for use.”

The Zynx Clinical Team will continue to update its monkeypox care guidance as new evidence emerges and best-practice recommendations evolve.

WellSky® Unveils Patient Engagement Platform to Personalize Condition Management and Optimize Health Outcomes

Businesswire | April 10, 2023

WellSky, a leading health and community care technology company, today announced the launch of WellSky Patient, a transformative patient engagement platform aimed at identifying patient health risks, avoiding complications, and improving outcomes through stronger transparency and communication between patients, families, and clinical care teams. A patient’s willingness and ability to participate in their care plans, particularly between provider visits, can greatly influence whether they experience new health problems and subsequent use of costly, unplanned emergent care. With the WellSky Patient platform, patients stay connected to their care providers between visits through two-way communication, video-based telehealth, and guided condition management programs. At the same time, patient-generated data from health status submissions and remote monitoring creates a comprehensive view for clinicians to track a patient’s progression and identify needs for clinical intervention. “It is critical that our care team members have a complete picture of the patient’s condition and are given the insights necessary to engage most appropriately with the right resources at the right time,” said Dr. Bethany Snider, chief medical officer at Hosparus Health. “The capabilities WellSky is bringing to the table help give us the visibility we need to customize care to the individual, while also ensuring the patient’s family members and other caregivers are full participants in the care journey.” When patients are given convenient and practical tools to help them take an active role in their own care and well-being, satisfaction is higher, complications are fewer, and outcomes are better. By focusing on the home as the center of patient engagement, healthcare organizations can gain new insights into patient behaviors and conditions, enabling them to adjust the plan of care, control costs, and positively influence outcomes to the benefit of the person and the healthcare organization alike. “Patient engagement technology has historically focused on completing tasks related to a care episode, such as scheduling an appointment, completing an intake form, or viewing a lab result,” said Tim Ashe, chief clinical officer at WellSky. “That paradigm must shift toward the person, with a focus on how to best guide them through the care journey while surveying and managing their condition virtually. The innovation WellSky has developed to bring this strategy to life will be of great value to our clients, their care team members, and their patients.” By putting the person at the center of their own care, healthcare organizations can offer unique and differentiated care experiences while gaining unprecedented insights into when – and how – specific interventions can optimize outcomes for patients and ultimately ensure success in models of value-based care. About WellSky® WellSky is one of America’s largest and most innovative healthcare technology companies leading the movement for intelligent, coordinated care. Our proven software, analytics, and services power better outcomes and lower costs for stakeholders across the health and community care continuum. In today’s value-based care environment, WellSky helps providers, payers, health systems, and community organizations scale processes, improve collaboration for growth, harness the power of data analytics, and achieve better outcomes by further connecting clinical and social care.

Nova Scotia Selects OceanMD for Electronic Surgical Consult Referrals to Help Reduce Wait Times

Prnewswire | April 05, 2023

WELL Health Technologies Corp. a digital healthcare company focused on positively impacting health outcomes by leveraging technology to empower healthcare practitioners and their patients globally, is pleased to announce that pursuant to an announcement made on March 29, 2023, the Province of Nova Scotia is introducing a new electronic tool, Ocean eReferrals, to manage surgical referrals and make the process more efficient for physicians and patients. This new system will help patients receive better information on the status of their referral and will lead to shorter wait times in the long run. The goal is to improve the process of sending and receiving surgical referrals for both primary care providers and surgeons, to support improved access and provide better information to support planning and care. Nova Scotia's Health and Wellness Minister, Michelle Thompson, stated "Waiting for care is hard for patients and their families. It's also frustrating for healthcare professionals when they don't have the information to answer their patients' questions. Nova Scotians deserve short wait times that will keep them out of pain and allow them to move on with their lives." Jeff Kavanagh, CEO of OceanMD, a subsidiary of WELL, commented, "We are thrilled to work with the Province of Nova Scotia to address the growing need for an electronic referral system across the entire province. We applaud the work of the Department of Health and Wellness in leading this initiative to create an efficient process to reduce wait times and provide critical information to the people of Nova Scotia." Through the new system, primary care providers will send their requests for surgical consultations via e-referral, rather than faxing, emailing, or mailing requests directly to a surgeon. This method of referral will enable better tracking, review, and management of referrals, and will eventually include consult wait time information to help ensure patients have faster access to care. Patients who provide their email address and referring providers will receive automatic notifications when their referral is received, forwarded to a surgeon, and when a consult is booked or changed. This feature will provide patients with greater visibility into the referral process and enable them to stay informed throughout their journey. Ocean eReferrals was made available to primary care providers and surgeons at Nova Scotia Health and IWK Health as of Friday, March 31, 2023.
