Creating Better Patient Outcomes through Interactive Technology

The last 54 hours have not been easy. Your son was taken to the hospital unexpectedly. He was first brought to the emergency room, then was admitted into the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and finally admitted into the hospital. A battery of tests, 2 days of observation, and 2 nights sleeping in the chair next to his bed later, it’s finally time to be discharged. The doctor comes in and quickly goes over care instructions at home, warning signs to look for, prescriptions to collect, and follow up visits to schedule with a Primary Care Physician (PCP) and specialists. The problem is now that you’re driving home, you remember very little of those instructions.

Given how important these instructions are and how much effort the patient put into understanding and remembering them, why would this happen? The answer is actually fairly intuitive.

First, these instructions are given during or directly after a situation that has caused a lot of stress. Studies show the “negative impact of stress and anxiety” on the ability of a person to learn and retain information. Unfortunately, much of this information and many of the after-care instructions may perhaps being delivered at the worst possible time for absorption.

Secondly, the instructions are typically given verbally or in written form by the physician or a member of the hospital staff. OSHA has done studies that show people only remember 10% of what they read and 20% of what they hear, which means if they read along while the physician is speaking, they may remember about 30% of it. However people will remember 50% of what they see and hear together, and that goes up to 70% if a task is involved as well.

Considering these two hurdles, how can a hospital or healthcare facility better deliver important patient education to reduce readmissions and promote more positive patient outcomes?

Enter interactive patient education systems.

An interactive patient education system takes important patient discharge information, after care instructions, and frequently asked questions and puts them into a digital format including video. The patient is then given access to this media via the in room entertainment system and/or their personal devices like tablets and phones. This allows the patient to learn at their pace when they are ready, helping mitigate the potential for low retention during a time of high stress or anxiety. They also allow hospital staff to launch pieces of information to each patient remotely, creating a more efficient method of delivery, as opposed to using “sneaker-net” to walk a DVD or tape to each room.

Another benefit of using an interactive patient engagement system is that it puts the patient in the driver seat. Given that people naturally remember more when doing tasks associated with the information being relayed, making the information interactive and navigable by the patient increases their retention and promotes better patient outcomes. It also reinforces the learning experience, which means not only do these systems promote better outcomes, but they also promote better patient satisfaction. Many times the information, once digitized can also be accessed and reviewed once the patient returns home, anytime and anywhere, reducing the chances of complications and readmissions.

Many systems also utilize surveys for patients to share input about their care as well, giving the facility an opportunity to improve on the fly and better understand individual patient needs.

For the healthcare provider, interactive patient education systems assure a consistent approach in the delivery of information. They can also interact with other hospital ADT and EMR systems to automatically create records and automate documentation of what information was shared and when, further reducing liability.

In the final analysis, interactive patient engagement solutions are easy to deploy and offer an extremely high ROI when considering better outcomes and increased satisfaction for patients, and increased efficiency, reduced readmissions, and reduced liability for healthcare providers. Just another way that technology is helping healthcare improve in the modern age.

The New House Call- Telehealth is Bringing the Doctor Back Home

woman video chat with DrWatch any movie set in the late 19th or early twentieth century where someone has taken ill and inevitably, a doctor will arrive at the patient’s home, black bag in hand, and sit next to them in their own bed to take a look. In fact, this is the origin of the term “bedside manner”.

In the 1930’s house calls were standard practice for physicians. Approximately 40 percent of doctor patient visits happened in the patient’s home. By 1950, this had decreased to 10 percent, and by 1980, to about only 1 percent. –American Academy of Family Physicians

In a way, some of this shift to medical care at a dedicated facility outside of the home makes sense. A physician at an emergency room (ER) for example may need access to a CAT scan machine, an MRI machine, a cardiology lab, or a lab for blood work. It is hard to imagine all of this being taken to the patient’s home in that traditional little, black doctor’s bag. The propagation of the modern day insurance system also played a part in the reduction of house calls by physicians due to their policy for reimbursement on these type of visits.

The house calls, for all intents and purposes, are gone. However, the march of technology and the need to better allocate the limited resources of a physician’s time, while reducing the cost of medical care are bringing back the house call in an innovative new way.

Enter Telehealth.

Telehealth as a concept has been around for some time, but it seems that the introduction of new technology alone is not enough to tip the scales. You need an accompanying change in the attitudes and acceptance of the technology by the patients themselves. You also need acceptance of the technology by both the medical community, as well as by the medical insurance system to assure payment. For the last few years, these needed changes had been slow to materialize, however today the pendulum has begun to swing in favor of telehealth.

A recent Harris Poll showed that 66% of people surveyed are open to visiting with their doctor over video. The appeal of convenience and shorter wait times were strong drivers of this willingness. Another interesting revelation in the poll was that for “middle of the night” care, 21% of respondents indicated they would choose a video visit. This may on the surface seem low, but when you consider the fact that 17% said they would call a 24 hour nurse line, and an additional 5% indicated they would use an online symptom checker, the result is that 43% of the respondents chose methods that did not require seeing a doctor in person. That means telehealth in some form has now reached the same level of preference as a visit to the ER, (44% chose this method), when it comes to middle of the night care.

For obtaining prescriptions, an overwhelming 70% of respondents said they would prefer a video visit with the doctor. Prescription refills, birth control, antibiotics, and prescriptions for chronic illness are all situations that align well with online consultations.

Doctors Matter

Another telling finding in the Harris Poll on telehealth was that doctors still matter. Just because patients are willing to meet with a doctor over video doesn’t mean that they are willing to meet with any doctor available. In fact, 88% of those polled wanted the ability to choose their online doctor just as they would their primary care physician (PCP). 7% of respondents said they would be willing to switch PCPs to get video visits, which indicates that adding telehealth services would not dramatically attract new patients to a practice, but would create opportunities to retain more existing patients, especially younger patients who would be more likely to leave.

Doctors do indeed matter, and not just in a patient’s choice of physician, but also in the doctor’s choice to use telemedicine in their practice. As stated above, doctors do not currently face a mass exodus if they choose not to employ telehealth. However, doctors who have made the leap have found they can offer the same quality of care and positive patient outcomes when they utilize HD video for patient visits.

“The first thing I do when I treat a patient is I look at their face,” said Dr. Peter Antall, President and Medical Director of the Online Care Group, which provides telehealth services. “A person’s facial expressions and body language give me an understanding for their overall well-being that could be missed over the phone. Beyond that, video gives me an opportunity to see skin rashes or tonsils – important signs when making a diagnosis. With the HD-quality video, I can assess the patient closely and provide a diagnosis that will produce the best possible outcome.”

This aligns well with the Federation of State Medical Boards’ policy recommendations of utilizing both high quality audio and video in telehealth.

Cost of Care

The survey shows that 62% of patients expect telehealth visits to cost less than an in person visits. This is a reasonable assumption, and has proven to be true in reality. Studies have shown that “telehealth visit saves about $100 or more compared to the estimated cost for in-person care.”  Given these savings, it seems odd that insurance companies have been slow to embrace reimbursements for these visits.  Today however, 22 states now have laws requiring that telehealth visits be paid in the same way as traditional office visits, and the Affordable Care Act also has rules in place that will continue to pave the way for increased technology in healthcare.

With consumer attitudes on telehealth dramatically shifting, insurance policies rapidly changing to allow for telehealth reimbursements, telehealth’s innate cost advantages, and the growing acceptance of telehealth in the medical community based on realized positive outcomes, it is no surprise that telehealth is poised to revolutionize healthcare.  It all adds up to one thing.

The house call…is back!

The Changing Landscape for Healthcare CIOs

Over the past decade, the healthcare sector has gone through significant changes, and with the growing importance of technology in healthcare, the change has been substantial. The healthcare sector has not only embraced tech innovations such as telehealth, remote monitoring, and unified communications, but it is also developing new ways to implement these innovations, from creating better treatment procedures to positively impacting the overall healthcare system. As such, the role of hospital CIOs has transformed drastically.

A recent article in MedcityNews.com provides a view into the moving landscape of the Healthcare CIO as a major influencer and decision maker. Comparing the current state of a hospital CIO to that of an “embattled soldier”, the article cites the views of Jim Turnbull, CIO for University Utah Healthcare. He has started describing his job as VUCA, a military acronym for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.

This isn’t so strange considering that today’s healthcare market is more dynamic than ever before. Over the past three years, as most healthcare IT departments have been busy implementing the EHR technology, “When they lifted up their heads, they realized the world had changed dramatically,” said Turnbull at CHIME14 in San Antonio, calling the state of healthcare IT “intense.” Down the road, hospitals will face a growing need to consider wearable technology, the concept of accountable care, more robust security for its tech spaces, and varying reimbursement models, among many other concerns. Their ability to grasp needs and evolve accordingly will determine how well they can use technology to combat health issues and give patients a better experience, every time.

Rick Schooler, Vice President and CIO for Orlando Health, however, feels “intense” is too mild a term to describe the tumultuous state of today’s healthcare industry. “There really is too much going on at once,” he says. “What’s going on in our organizations is really nuts. Our people are getting jerked around almost endlessly.”

According to Turnbull, given the current state of healthcare, CIOs must emphasize collaboration and partnership as the key to maintain the fine balance. And, patients, of course, should be prioritized. This is how present-day CIOs need to deal with the dynamically shifting landscape of healthcare tech. It will be interesting to watch how the industry adapts under this constant state of change.

A Review of Growth in Telehealth

Telehealth is being recognized as an effective method of treatment and healthcare throughout the world. With the rising demand for telehealth, medical fraternities and allied technology providers are looking for ways to make telehealth a better and more sustainable practice.

A recent article in HealthTechZone.com brings forth the present state of telehealth in the world. As one of the premier advocates of telehealth, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has been exploring the use of telehealth in order to provide veterans more effective and cost-efficient healthcare facilities. Latest stats revealed by the VA shows that telemedicine visits increased from 1.8 million in 2013, to 2 million this year.

Telehealth is playing a huge role in bringing better medical amenities to remote and impoverished regions that suffer from limited access to physical healthcare facilities. According to the VA, 55% of those who received medical assistance through telehealth were from rural areas that are miles away from VA medical centers.

Considering that the telehealth sector is expected to grow 10 times in the next 4 years, the need for better broadband support is slated to rise as well. Currently, rural healthcare providers (HCP) need to have better access to broadband speeds in order to communicate with patients and other medical staff for telehealth assistance. To improve this situation, Tim Koxlien, founder and CEO of Rural Health Telecom, says, “Upgrading rural healthcare provider broadband networks will be required.” As it relates to telecom accessibility, Koxlien states, “Two of the major challenges for healthcare providers are hardware installation costs and the lack of proper IT support.”

Interestingly, the private sector is also showing significant interest in telemedicine, not only from the business standpoint but also with the aim to add value to people’s lives. For instance, Google is launching a pilot telehealth program that will enable people to connect with medical professionals when they search for basic healthcare queries. Similarly, the Dutch consumer electronics giant, Philips, is partnering with a UN initiative to take telehealth to countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia with the aim to transform the lives of 100 million women and children by 2025.

With the growing use of telehealth, we are heading towards a promising future where expert-handled, cost-effective treatment will be accessible to one and all.

Do you think telehealth will gradually replace traditional healthcare as a cheaper and more effective healthcare method?

At Avidex AV, we seek to partner with healthcare organizations to deliver audio, video, collaboration and telemedicine solutions that drive innovation and improved efficiencies for our clients. Let’s connect to see how we can help your organization meet its technology needs.

What New Entrants Need To Know About Telemedicine

patient watching videoWith an expected compound growth rate of 14% and an estimated annual jump of users to more than 7 million by 2018, the telemedicine market has a lot of reasons for businesses serving healthcare to get excited.

However, for companies interested in playing ball in the telemedicine space, it is important that they pay attention to a few very important things, or they may find themselves left out in the cold.

In a recent piece featured in Entrepreneur – 3 Keys to Seizing Opportunity in the Booming Telemedicine Space, one of the leading minds in the field of telemedicine shared his observation on the keys for new market entrants in the field of telemedicine. He boiled it down to 3.

First, he points to the regulatory environment. While the benefits of telemedicine are apparent, regulations must be taken into consideration when rolling out any telemedicine services.

Second, education must be a focus. For instance, some may see the technology required for telemedicine to be simple and straightforward. But this may not be the case for all users and/or buyers.

Third and perhaps most interesting was the call to embracing the small network that comprises the healthcare industry. The author implied that working closely and networking with other healthcare professionals to share the vision of telemedicine has tremendous value.

One thing is for sure, the telemedicine industry in on the rise and there is much to be excited about.

At Avidex AV we work closely with healthcare providers across the United States to deliver technology and telemedicine solutions that meet the demanding and ever changing needs of the healthcare industry. Get in touch to see how we can help your organization thrive.

Telemedicine Is Key To Big Savings In Healthcare

money and stethascopeOne of the truly great things about technology investments are that they are rarely purchased purely for technology, but rather as a means to running healthier, stronger and more profitable organizations.

So while the initial investment may cause organizations to take pause, often times the ability for the technology to drive greater profits through enhanced revenues or cost reductions makes the investment more than worthwhile.

In the healthcare industry, it turns out that this is the case; especially when it comes to Telemedicine.

As we all know, the delivery of healthcare is expensive. This cost puts pressure on insurers, healthcare organizations and perhaps more than any other, on the consumer.  Just about anytime we have to go visit the doctor we have to think long and hard about what it might cost us. But isn’t this something that technology can help?

In a recent article on “Health and Data Management” there is an exploration into how much out of pocket cost could be saved for consumers through the use of Telemedicine. As it turns out, the numbers are large; in fact 6 billion large according to global professional services company Towers Watson.

This statistic alone is encouraging, however the biggest hurdle noted in the article is challenges for healthcare organizations to get reimbursed, which is currently seeing improvement after AMA sent guidance on how reimbursement should be handled.

At Avidex AV we work closely with our healthcare partners to implement the technology that helps drive more productive organizations. Let’s connect to find out how we can help your organization advance into the future.

The Rapid Growth In Virtual Doctor Visits

ipad with xraysWith a rapidly growing boomer population and an almost entirely overhauled healthcare system, the way healthcare is going to be delivered in the coming years is bound to change. It has to.

The new system is putting pressure on the system to find ways to cut costs while making care more accessible to the masses. This type of strain makes it very difficult for the healthcare system to do more, especially when in many cases, they are being asked to accomplish it with less.

What this means is that healthcare systems are going to have to turn their attention to cost control and improved services and once again what will come to the rescue? Technology!

According to a recent article in CIO – “Almost One in Six Doctor Visits Will be Virtual This Year “- it was determined that 1 in 6 doctors visits in 2014 will be done virtually. Doing so will save an estimated 5 billion dollars versus the cost of traditional in office patient visits.

eVisits can provide a range of services from capturing patient information to direct interaction via video conferencing including use of mobile devices like iPads and tablets. And according to Deloitte if eVisits could address even 30-40% of the market it could equate to 50-60 billion dollars in cost savings or containment.

This perfect storm of technology and cost savings are perhaps best said, just what the doctor ordered!

At Avidex we work to create solutions that take into considerations the most pressing needs of our healthcare clients. From telemedicine to training spaces, we apply the best of audio, video, and collaboration technologies that meet your most pressing business needs. Let’s connect to see how we can help your organization maximize its technology.

AV Technology That Allows Live Video Remote Language Interpretation

ethnic dr on phoneMedicine is universal. The human body suffers the same diseases all over the globe, and a doctor can treat a set of symptoms regardless of language. However, it’s still necessary to communicate with the patient to understand those symptoms. So what do they do when a patient arrives who speaks a different language? Or if the patient is deaf, and communicates using sign language? How can the doctor understand them well enough to help them?

Federal law requires interpreters be available in all healthcare facilities to provide language services when necessary. However, an ordinary interpreter won’t do for such matters. They need a qualified medical interpreter. And there might not always be an interpreter on hand who not only understands medical matters, but also the specific language they’re being called to translate. Fortunately, there’s AV technology that allows live video remote language interpretation from anywhere in the world.

Remote Language Interpretation
Medical interpreters are an important and often rare commodity. They need a variety of certifications to practice and must meet other healthcare regulations. Finding someone who meets all of these qualifications and speaks the languages that you need is a difficult task. Finding them in the area where they’re needed may be challenging and it may also be impossible in emergency situations.

However, through videoconferencing, certified medical interpreters can be located anywhere in the world and brought in remotely to provide their services as if they were in the room. Many organizations have a variety of medical interpreters on call 24/7, ready to teleconference when needed. With the right equipment, they can provide their services through a laptop, tablet, or even a smartphone.

Medical Interpretation Applications
Mobile device applications can simplify the process of connecting with a medical interpreter who speaks a particular language. The doctor can simply select the language they need from a dropdown list and be instantly connected with a medical interpreter who speaks that language, on call from the interpreter provider. The camera allows the interpreter to connect visually with the patient and facilitate the translation process much better than a simple voice call would. And it’s particularly important for sign language calls, wherein it’s essential that the interpreter be face to face with the person that they’re interpreting for.

Remote medical interpreters don’t only need to be used for patients. Doctors from around the world are often called in to consult, or to perform complex procedures in which they specialize. Likewise, doctors from the United States often travel to impoverished nations to provide much needed medical treatment. The procedures themselves are universal, but they still need to be able to communicate with the other doctors and healthcare professionals in the area, about complex medical issues. Remote language interpretation services can facilitate consultation with the best doctors in the world, no matter what language they speak.

Videoconferencing tools break down physical barriers by allowing people to talk face to face, even on opposite sides of the globe. But now, those same tools can also break down language barriers, helping those people to understand one another, no matter what language they speak. And in the medical community, the breaking down of those barriers can save lives.

Avidex – TeleHealth

Avidex TelehealthFor many years, when meeting with senior executives of TeleHealth’s partners, they would often request an expansion of their industry- leading service to provide post install support for various AV systems in their hospitals. Although out of their scope of offerings at the time, this feedback led to the exploration of an exceptional AV integrator. The many synergies, expertise, and the needed focus for AV solutions in the healthcare market, provided the perfect springboard to merge the two providers.

In November of 2012, Avidex, one of the top AV design/build firms in the country, was acquired by Telerent Leasing Corporation as a strategic initiative in response to this market need. Telerent is the parent company of TeleHealth Services, a leading interactive patient care and television solution providers. This strategic partnership has better positioned both companies to serve the unique needs of the healthcare market. As discussed previously – Why Technical Expertise Matters –  when it comes to healthcare audiovisual and technology integration, it is best to utilize a firm that successfully leverages its technical expertise and experience within this specialized market.

Now as the CEO of Avidex, I am excited to meet with TeleHealth customers and describe how Avidex has the technical expertise and capability to bring relief to this area of need in their operations.

Avidex was incorporated in 2004, but has its roots going back to the early 1980’s. Since the beginning, and stated in the name (Audio Video Integration and Design Excellence) the company has been driven by the “service the customer first” philosophy. As an award winning team of AV industry veterans that has done thousands of systems for major global companies, it continues to implement a broad range of technologies that allow doctors, teachers, nurses, clinicians and administrators to communicate effectively. The focus on quality extends beyond product, to how it is used, total system reliability in critical environments and support throughout the system’s life-cycle.

Avidex’s deep healthcare experience at nationally recognized medical schools and leading health systems, combined with TeleHealth’s leadership in patient television solutions, positions us to offer a wide range of integrated solutions for hospitals, medical office buildings and teaching institutions including digital signage, sound masking, video conferencing, meeting/collaboration rooms, boardrooms and multi-use spaces that may also be used for emergency operation rooms.

TeleHealth Services was founded in 1957, and for the last 57 years has been the leading national technology company serving the healthcare industry with solutions ranging from full scale integrations to bedside television solutions and interactive patient education systems. Together, Avidex and TeleHealth will continue to develop solutions to meet the needs of the rapidly changing healthcare technology landscape.

Federation of State Medical Boards Recognize Telemedicine As In-Person Consult

Photo from Vidyo Brandon Berg sid I could use     Vidyo_Mercy_Image_2_web

For as long as high quality video conferencing has been available the healthcare industry has seen potential.

The discussions around telemedicine have long been met with a certain stagnation as the healthcare world, which is riddled with regulation has seen one challenge after another in gaining wide adoption of the invaluable capabilities that telemedicine can bring.

One of the long known challenges of adoption has been the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) who until April of 2014 did not recognize video consultations (Telemedicine) as equal to an in person consult. With this change of policy by the FSMB the doors have been opened up for telemedicine and what it can do to help connect doctors and patients more readily using telemedicine.

In an article featured on Forbes Vidyo Gets The Jump On Next Generation Telemedicine: But What About Cisco Systems And Polycom? by one notable healthcare technology analyst, he believes that this change will really open the flood gates for healthcare systems who have been considering adoption of expansion of healthcare based video consultations.

One of the other important ideas noticed in the article was the importance of a streamlined software that allows for easy implementation of telemedicine to standard mobile device operating systems such as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.

Companies like Vidyo have shown leadership in this development, but Cisco and Polycom are also obvious contenders for taking a leadership role in this space.

What is becoming more and more apparent is that Telemedicine is finding its way into more and more healthcare systems. The ultimate technology winner is still to be determined and that is why at Avidex we partner with many of the leading telemedicine solution providers; so we can focus on the need of our partners and then deploy accordingly.

Is your organization adopting or exploring telemedicine? We’d love to help you in your journey from information gathering through deployment. Just let us know how we can help? Visit our website at www.avidexav.com.
