Today, Allina Health announced a new partnership with PatientWisdom, Inc. to improve patient engagement through the use of the digital platform, PatientWisdom. The platform is integrated with electronic health record (EHR) systems and patient portals and allows patients to share personal/health details before their clinical encounter. PatientWisdom then distills the information into an at-a-glance inSIGHT summary which is sent to care teams before the visit to understand what matters to their patients as people, which, in turn, helps providers deliver better outcomes.
Providers confirm that it only takes about 15 seconds to review the PatientWisdom inSIGHT summary in the EHR before seeing a patient; 90% of patients report that PatientWisdom improves communication with the providers who use it; 95% rate their visit as going extremely well, a marked improvement over baseline scores; and use has been associated with a meaningful reduction in new-patient no show rates.
Allina Health joins other forward-leaning health organizations including Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Healthcare Transformation Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, OSF HealthCare, and Yale New Haven Health in using PatientWisdom.
“We are delighted to be working with Allina Health – I’m a big fan of their vision for Whole Person Care,” said Dr. Gregory Makoul, Founder and CEO of PatientWisdom, Inc. “The interest in PatientWisdom at all of our partners reinforces the power of making it safe and easy to focus on what matters to patients.”
