IPSWICH, Mass. — June 3, 2020  — EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has entered into a partnership with PatientWisdom, Inc., a digital-health company with solutions that transform the experience and delivery of care by listening to the people involved, individually and at scale. The flagship solution, PatientWisdom®, distills information about what matters to patients into point-of-care insights to help clinicians and healthcare organizations deliver optimal services. PatientWisdom now offers integration capabilities with EBSCO’s shared decision making and patient education tools. 

PatientWisdom aims to enhance relationships between patients and their physicians and care teams, and improve the delivery of healthcare services. The HIPAA-compliant, mobile responsive solution captures valuable information directly from patients and integrates it into the clinician workflow. An at-a-glance inSIGHT summary is available in the electronic health record (EHR) to help busy clinicians better address patient needs and preferences. 

As part of the agreement, EBSCO will leverage its global presence to expand the reach and impact of PatientWisdom. PatientWisdom Founder and CEO Dr. Gregory Makoul reinforces the importance of this partnership. “EBSCO recognizes that understanding what matters to patients is an essential element of clinical decision support. By combining forces, we can accelerate a shared vision of helping health organizations create more responsive ecosystems in the course of everyday practice.”

The company offers four solutions — PatientWisdom, ProviderWisdom®, CommunityWisdom® and StudentWisdomTM — all designed to augment standard information by focusing on what matters to key stakeholders.

  • PatientWisdom: Makes it easy to understand what matters to patients ahead of clinical encounters to transform the patient experience.
  • ProviderWisdom: Obtains real-world insights from clinicians and staff to enhance engagement, address burnout and streamline care.
  • CommunityWisdom: Produces a deep view of the community to give health organizations clear lines-of-sight for developing or partnering with programs people will use.
  • StudentWisdom: Collects student and faculty viewpoints to improve learner well-being and the overall learning environment.

EBSCO Clinical Decisions Executive Vice President Betsy Jones says this relationship demonstrates the company’s dedication to enhancing patient encounters in the healthcare space. “PatientWisdom shares EBSCO’s drive in leveraging evidence-based medicine by enhancing the patient experience and discovering patient sensitivities. This partnership complements our focus on the care team, clinical decision support and patient preferences to achieve better outcomes.”
