OBJECTIVE

Emerald Clinics is using FollowApp Care technology to monitor their patients for the COVID-19 virus. With daily communications sent to patients, FollowApp monitors patients using health check-ins, then automatically triages them to alleviate strain on the response and medical system. In doing so, we will collect data that will help researchers to understand the virus better and inform appropriate management of people in self-isolation.

9NEWS Press Release

“The service offered by Emerald Clinics is aimed at monitoring symptoms in a more automated way, but with an actual doctor on hand to assist when symptom ‘red flags’ issue alerts and prompt a consult with a patient…[people] can deteriorate quite quickly with COVID-19 – you can be well for a few days, your fever might resolve and all of a sudden you might have shortness of breath,” Dr Winlo said. It’s really important to spot when those changes happen and ensure they get the appropriate follow-up.”

OBJECTIVE

FollowApp Care’s remote monitoring technology was selected as part of a USD $1.2M research grant with the American National Institutes of Health (NIH). The objective of this study, accomplished by using FollowApp.Care’s technology at participating dental clinics, is to accurately capture patient reported health outcomes; evaluate the impact of utilising FollowApp Care’s technology on patients’ post-operative pain experiences and oral health outcomes; and to evaluate provider acceptance of FollowApp Care’s technology and its impact on provider performance. This is a 3000 patient clinical trial in partnership with The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).

AHRQ Press Release

“The ultimate goals of the project are to enhance patient and physician experience, improve patient outcomes, and reduce per capita costs.

By actively tracking symptoms, providers will have an opportunity to modify pain medication prescriptions, thereby eliminating needless suffering, reducing the occurrence or severity of post-operative complications, and enhancing the overall care experience.”

Duration

2020-2025

OBJECTIVE

As a result of the success of the results from the previous grant, FollowApp Care was selected as the technical partner for a second NIH grant with the National Dental Practice Based Research Network (NDPBRN). This 2-year USD $400,000 grant is currently in the planning phase, and, if successful, will be a further 5 year research study with 150 clinicians and over 4000 patients. The primary outcomes are to assess: self-reported patient pain intensity in the days following a procedure; interference of daily activities due to pain caused by a procedure; perceived patient satisfaction of pain management following a procedure; perceived satisfaction of the patient’s provider; and perceived usefulness and clinical impact of FollowApp.Care’s technology. 

“After the effects of the most commonly-used local anesthetic diminishes, dental patients must rely on themselves and their own understanding for pain management following dental procedures. This has led to an over-reliance on prescribed opioids as there are no means to actively track patients’ pain once they leave the clinic. 

To understand effective/appropriate pain management, we need to examine the pain levels experienced by patients caused by which dental procedures. Such an inventory will allow providers to anticipate and better manage their patients’ post-operative pain…This study will demonstrate that PROs [patient reported outcomes] provide actionable data. ”

GOAL

This partner did not have access to the data and tools they needed for their busy staff to efficiently manage patients. 

They needed a way to test recall variations with their wide demographic base, and to validate more optimised recalls by mapping them to resulting appointments made. They also needed a more efficient process to ensuring those who hadn’t booked through a recall didn’t get forgotten about. 

They also were keen to gain an awareness of the patient experience – firstly to extend their level of care to all procedures, not just those that are more serious or invasive, and secondly to proactively manage and retain unhappy patients in a way that was quick and easy for staff.

SOLUTIONS

  • Aftercareour post-treatment and patient satisfaction booster
  • Patient satisfaction monitoring: collecting patient feedback to continuously improve service 
  • Smart Recallsautomated, personalised communications that bring patient back more often with no staff intervention required
  • Recalls Resend, an automatic second recall when appointments are overdue to be booked
  • Recalls Hot Call List, an optimised patient list sorted by an algorithm for efficient recalling 
  • Reporting: performance data to enable a cultural transformation and achieve company goals, such as ensuring the same quality of care was maintained throughout a multi-brand organisation, and providing a better picture of appointments booked each month to help with scheduling and operational efficiency.
