Geisinger launched ConnectedCare365, an innovative care delivery model for consumers with chronic diseases like diabetes, heart failure, and hypertension. Powered by Noteworth, a digital health startup, this first-of-its-kind virtual care delivery platform uses remote monitoring, artificial intelligence, and data analysis tools to improve consumer outcomes.
ConnectedCare365 allows consumers to monitor their weight, blood pressure, glucose, and other metrics using a smartphone app. By analyzing consumer-generated data and relevant information from the electronic health record, the platform communicates directly with the consumer’s care team, allowing clinical professionals to triage and prioritize care for high-risk consumers to prevent unnecessary emergency room visits and hospitalizations. The platform also keeps consumers and their families and caregivers engaged with care teams through direct messaging.
Geisinger and Noteworth plan to collaborate to address additional key clinical initiatives for diabetes, heart failure, history of stroke risk and post-stroke care, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), case management, behavioral health, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and addiction disorders. Geisinger care teams will also use the platform to transition consumer care after discharge from the hospital. Throughout the partnership, Noteworth will provide technical and consultative support to drive Geisinger’s goals of improving health outcomes, increasing consumer engagement, improving access to care, and lowering costs.
Geisinger is a health system serving central Pennsylvania. It includes nine hospital campuses, a health plan with more than half a million members, a Research Institute, and the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. Geisinger serves more than 1 million people annually.
Noteworth modernizes health care delivery by driving continuous engagement of consumers and providers across ambulatory, post-acute, and transitional care journeys. With a single, modular platform that can be used alone or easily integrated with any electronic medical record (EMR), Noteworth eliminates the need for disparate point solutions to address all aspects of virtual care, including condition management, remote monitoring, home health, behavioral health, telemedicine, and consumer engagement. The platform’s health care data collection and assessment drives proactive interventions that enable health systems to improve consumer outcomes, reduce care costs, and streamline workflows.
