NEW HAVEN, CT, December 17, 2019 – PatientWisdom, Inc., the digital health company with a suite of solutions that transform health and care by listening to patients, providers, and community members – individually and at scale – today announced that WellSpan Health will use the PatientWisdom solution to accelerate efforts focused on understanding what matters to patients. This innovation will be first launched at five practices in central Pennsylvania, with plans to scale across the entire WellSpan Health network.
Initial implementation at WellSpan Health concentrates on Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Obstetrics & Gynecology, where patients will use PatientWisdom’s HIPAA-compliant, mobile-responsive site to securely share perspectives about themselves, their health, and their care before coming in for a clinical visit. PatientWisdom distills this information into at-a-glance inSIGHT summaries, delivered via the electronic health record, to help every member of a patient’s care team learn what matters from the patient point-of-view.
“We are proud to support WellSpan Health’s effort to focus on healing relationships instead of health transactions,” said Dr. Gregory Makoul, Founder and CEO of PatientWisdom, Inc. “WellSpan clearly understands that improving communication leads to very tangible benefits for everyone involved. Our goal is to make it easier for every member of the care team to provide patients with even better care without taking longer.”
