How mHealth Can Enhance a Physician’s Brand

Posted by Travis Bond

Oct 7, 2016 10:17:00 AM

In an increasingly digital world, patients are becoming more tech- and mobile-savvy in the way they search for and experience healthcare. But far too many physicians are not taking advantage of the mobile revolution, or using medical apps or other mobile health technology to enhance their care delivery outside the point of care.

It’s a disconnect that needs to change as healthcare providers who don’t engage with mobile technology risk being compared to taxicabs in the world of Uber. Further, as the industry continues the volume-to-value revolution, patients—especially those with chronic or complex conditions—will require communication outside the practice walls. Being seen as outdated and inaccessible in an online environment could affect a consumer’s perception of a physician’s ability to provide the highest-quality care.

3 Major Benefits of Leveraging Mobile Health Tools

Physicians can do a lot in the exam room. They can ask questions, listen attentively, take notes, render a diagnosis, and prescribe treatment and medications. What a physician cannot do, however, is significantly improve patient outcomes by only making health recommendations just during the visit, or by only sending lab results over a secure patient portal.

In order to truly impact care, physicians must extend their reach and presence beyond the practice walls, to the places where patients live, work and play.

Healthcare Perspectives Differ: Can Care Coordination Narrow the Gap?

Posted by Travis Bond

A study conducted by Y&R’s BAV Consulting, on behalf of Xerox®, found patients and the healthcare professionals who provide and insure their care have very different views on topics such as patient empowerment and control.

Chronic Care Management: Steps in the Right Direction

Posted by Travis Bond

Jul 18, 2016 2:50:40 PM

Before Chronic Care Management (CCM) was a code, we felt the healthcare system was lacking in care coordination and that someone needed to shed light on the dark spaces (the voids between office visits and transitions in the healthcare system) and help patients make sense of fragmented care. We created CareSync in 2011 to put patients at the center of their care and were already performing chronic care management when CMS announced the code and began reimbursing for it in 2015.

Stacey Richter, host of the popular podcast Relentless Health Value, recently referred to the first year of experience working with CPT Code 99490 as a four-stage process for providers: Disbelief, Shangri-La, Anger, and then Dawning Reality.
