Geisinger announced the launch of ConnectedCare365, an “innovative care delivery model” for patients with chronic diseases like diabetes, heart failure and hypertension. Powered by Noteworth, a digital health startup dedicated to rethinking healthcare delivery, this first-of-its-kind virtual care delivery platform uses remote patient monitoring, artificial intelligence and powerful data analysis tools to improve patient outcomes.
How does it work?
ConnectedCare365 allows patients to take control of their health by monitoring their weight, blood pressure, glucose, and other metrics using a smartphone app. By analyzing patient-generated data and relevant information from the electronic health record, the platform communicates directly with the patient’s care team, allowing clinicians to triage and prioritize care for high-risk patients to prevent unnecessary emergency room visits and hospitalizations. The platform also keeps patients and their families and caregivers engaged with care teams through direct messaging.
Geisinger and Noteworth will collaborate to address additional key clinical initiatives for diabetes, heart failure, history of stroke risk and post-stroke care, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), case management, behavioral health, COVID-19, and substance use disorders. Geisinger care teams will also use the platform to transition patient care after discharge from the hospital.
On the record
“This is a fundamentally different approach to chronic disease management,” said Karen Murphy, Ph.D., RN, chief innovation officer and founding director of Geisinger’s Steele Institute for Health Innovation. “Using predictive analytics, as well as real-time analysis of clinical and patient-generated data, ConnectedCare365 will help our patients achieve their health goals and better manage chronic conditions. Our partnership with Noteworth strengthens our ongoing commitment to making better health easier by developing digital solutions to provide better care to our patients and ultimately drive down healthcare costs.”
“The Noteworth and Geisinger collaboration opens the door to a revolutionary and fully integrated delivery model not seen at any other organization. Together, we will continue to drive innovation not only at Geisinger but throughout the industry,” said Justin Williams, co-founder and chief executive officer of Noteworth. “We are proud to work with Geisinger to help them transform the way they deliver care and enhance the patient experience.”
Throughout the partnership, Noteworth will provide technical and consultative support to drive Geisinger’s goals of improving health outcomes, increasing patient engagement, improving access to care and lowering costs.
