How Patient-Centric Interoperability Is Changing Hospice and Home Health Care
Many post-acute care companies have found interoperability — the ability of different information technology systems and software applications to exchange data — to be a game-changer for transferring information and helping patients. When data can follow patients from care setting to care setting, providers are better able to improve care plans, track outcomes and take guessing out of the equation.
Brightree’s new article “How Patient-Centric Interoperability Is Changing Hospice and Home Health Care” looks at how patients benefit when post-acute care companies are able to access information from other care locations in real time. The article is part of Mediaplanet’s “Hospice and Palliative Care” campaign to provide patients, families and caregivers with the education and skills needed to support the care of their loved one at home or away, as well as prepare mentally and emotionally for the end-of-life experience. The campaign was distributed through USA TODAY on Sept. 15 and is published online.
