Banner Health, a large non-profit health care system, launched a digital health program with Xealth as the deployment platform. The program is being rolled system-wide at Banner’s 30 acute-care hospitals and other entities, beginning with Babyscripts, a virtual care platform for managing prenatal and postpartum care.
Babyscripts will be available to obstetricians and family practitioners across Banner Health’s system. The platform manages remote monitoring and facilitates remote prenatal visits, when possible. Consumers can share biometrics such as weight and blood pressure data with clinical professionals through the electronic health record (EHR).
The Xealth platform is designed to help clinical professionals integrate, prescribe, and monitor digital health tools for consumers from one location in the EHR. In addition to Babyscripts for maternity care, Banner Health clinical care teams will soon be able to order additional resources related to chronic conditions and behavioral health, from the Cerner EHR. This builds on Cerner’s long-term relationship with Banner Health and a collaboration announced with Xealth in 2020.
Headquartered in Arizona, Banner Health is one of the largest non-profit health care systems in the country. The system owns and operates 30 acute-care hospitals, two rehabilitation hospitals, Banner Health Network, Banner-University Medicine, academic and employed physician groups, long-term care centers, outpatient surgery centers, and an array of other services including Banner Urgent Care, family clinics, home care and hospice services, pharmacies and a nursing registry. Banner Health is in six states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada, and Wyoming.
Xealth scales digital health programs, enabling clinical professionals to integrate, prescribe, and monitor digital health tools for consumers to drive engagement and utilization. Through the secure Xealth platform, clinical professionals can find and order digital health tools and programs for consumers direct from the EHR workflow, send these digital health orders to the consumer’s email or a consumer portal, and then monitor activity. Xealth spun out of Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH) in 2017, and investors include Atrium Health, Cleveland Clinic, MemorialCare Innovation Fund, Cerner, McKesson Ventures, Novartis, Philips, and ResMed as well as Providence Ventures, UPMC, and the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Health Network.
Cerner’s health technologies connect people and information systems at thousands of contracted provider facilities worldwide dedicated to creating smarter and better care for individuals and communities. Recognized globally for innovation, Cerner assists clinical professionals in making care decisions and assists provider organizations in managing the health of their populations. The company also offers an integrated clinical and financial system to help manage day-to-day revenue functions, as well as a wide range of services to support clinical, financial, and operational needs, focused on people.
