Our Job Is To Make You Better
WHAT WE OFFER
Pt Pal is the first integrated care delivery system in hospitals and clinics that allows any type of clinician to send patients digital prescriptions of activities, tasks and surveys, directly to the patient’s mobile device. We’re allowing physical, occupational and speech therapies, cardiac rehabilitation, urology, oncology and other departments to move off paper handouts for patient management and collect data/results directly from the patient. This digital connection is a new paradigm that is significantly altering and improving care by allowing remote monitoring of the patient, measuring outcomes and enabling feedback from the patient, resulting in improved patient satisfaction. Pt Pal also allows hospitals to provide community based interventions and reduces admissions through effective transitions of care.
PT PAL & VALUE-BASE CARE
Pt Pal increases organizational capacity to support the critical changes and new processes required for managing population health and transitioning to value-based payment models by:
(1) offering clinical care protocols;
(2) establishing a care management system that is sustainable;
(3) utilizing Pt Pal technology and data analytics to identify and monitor patients, including those at high risk and facilitate coordinated care; and
(4) decreasing the total cost of care.
VARIATION IN CARE
PT PAL PROVIDES
The effective use of patient-centered checklists and interventions at the right time supports patients as they navigate their healthcare and condition. Clinicians are integral to patient engagement as they work together with patients to improve outcomes.
PATIENT ENGAGEMENT IMPROVES OUTCOMES
Pt Pal is Industry-Leading Technology
"Patients often face substantial uncertainty about their disease, risks, care options, follow-up, and, most important, behaviors that will help them to get well and stay well. However, much of the information that is provided to patients is ambiguous and generic. For example, discharge instructions for a patient who has had a hip replacement are similar to those for a patient with heart failure in that both sets of instructions simply encourage the patients to follow up with their physicians. We believe that customized, patient-centered checklists can help to mitigate such ambiguity and facilitate patient engagement by improving communication between patients and their clinicians, helping patients to make decisions, and ensuring that patients perform important tasks, thereby reducing the risk of preventable harm.
Checklists work by providing specific information regarding who needs to act, what actions need to be taken, and how, where, and when each action should occur. As such, customized patient-centered checklists have a wide range of applications, with the potential to improve patient education, pre-procedure planning, discharge instructions, care coordination, chronic care management, and plans for staying well. However, the utility of current paper-based checklists is poor. Consequently, we believe that it is time to replace the antiquated paper-based checklist with a digital tool that can facilitate patient-clinician communication and improve outcomes."
