MobileSmith Health Advances Pre- and Post-Op Clinician-Patient Engagement through New App

May 2, 2019

RALEIGH, N.C., May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MobileSmith Health (OTCBB: MOST), a leader in the digital health and mobile development sector that is reshaping traditional healthcare, today announced the launch of Perioperative Blueprints 4.0. The expanded app Blueprints include new functionality that tailors the patient experience both pre- and post-op with the introduction of “Peri,” which offers AI-based interactions that elevates patient literacy with conversational interfaces, video and images. EMR integration and new adherence tracking dashboards allow providers to readily assess risk factors for complications, cancellations or readmissions.

“Surgical procedures account for 60 percent of a hospital’s revenue, so efficiency improvements to perioperative care can represent an enormous cost savings opportunity,” said Randy Tomlin, Chairman and CEO of MobileSmith Health. “Customers using our perioperative mobile apps benefit from a nearly 40 percent reduction of same-day cancellations and 7 percent reduction in 30-day readmissions, saving facilities up to $300 per procedure. Blueprints 4.0 takes those operational improvements a step further by providing patients even more personalization to their scheduling, adherence and procedure instructions, while supporting streamlined EMR-system integration and visibility into patient adherence for the hospital.”

Blueprints 4.0 expands the mobile capabilities of perioperative apps through personalized procedure guides to proactively educate patients, lessening anxiety and reducing no-shows. In addition, clear care pathways and alerts enhance patient adherence by modifying behavior to maintain both pre- and post-op compliance. The mobile app Blueprints can be personalized to the needs of the patient, including comorbidities, while the expanded provider dashboard can be integrated for a hospital or health system’s existing EMR system. Most notably, providers can identify patients critically out of adherence and prioritize interventions.

MobileSmith Health’s Blueprints meet a variety of clinical and administrative challenges, including the need to reduce costs and referral leakage, drive patient engagement and adherence, and improve HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) scores and overall health outcomes. With MobileSmith Health Blueprints, healthcare organizations can customize their apps based on specific feature sets, workflow, branding, protocol, procedure and service line while launching in as little as 90 days.
