Living with a chronic condition can be difficult, and provider organizations are committed to helping patients live a happier and healthier life by helping them manage their condition outside the acute care setting. With chronic care delivery being fragmented with patients visiting multiple care providers at different locations, it is not easy to deliver the right care to patients. Lack of relevant information across the different care facilities also adds to the problem. Healthcare organizations need suitable technology solutions to enable secure sharing of patient information across organizational boundaries, automate work flows, comply with regulations and to manage patient with chronic conditions outside the acute care setting. Patients also need the ability to have instant access to their health information to better understand and manage their chronic condition.
This webinar talks about how Microsoft technologies enable providers to gain the ability to understand patient compliance with protocols, make better decisions about patients who may be at risk for readmissions by helping them manage their chronic conditions outside acute care setting.
