The ExtendedCare Advantage

Patient satisfaction and outcomes are inextricably linked. ExtendedCare empowers patients with actionable information that literally transforms the patient experience. The happier and more engaged the patient, the higher the likelihood of better patient compliance and a better clinical outcome.

Provider satisfaction is core to success.  Clinicians using ExtendedCare typically see quantifiable improvements in the delivery and efficacy of care. Clinicians work smarter, faster, and with better morale knowing they are making deeper impacts on the health of their patients.

Here are 5 steps to making Telehealth the best it can be:

1. Empowerment

Empower your patients to “co-own” their care journeys.

ExtendedCare gives your patients secure, real-time access to information about their treatment, schedule, goals, and care team recommendations – at the bedside, at home, in video visits, anytime and anywhere.  They’re free to consult with clinicians and family caregivers via convenient, easy-to-use video visits.

  • Empowers patients to co-own their care journeys, independent of clinical specialty or venue of care
  • Virtual care such as “video visits” enable faster and easier care delivery
  • Real-time access to care plans and test results

2. Acceleration.

Improve your clinical outcomes and quality-of-care.

ExtendedCare empowers your care teams to deliver the right care in the right place at the right time – faster than previously possible. Clinicians can easily schedule and conduct convenient “video visits” with patients or other providers to accelerate and optimize care delivery. It all adds up to better patient outcomes, faster.

  • Streamlined digital workflows leveraging automation and video
  • Increased clinical efficiency and productivity
  • Seamless communication between patients, care teams, and family caregivers for better coordination and clinical outcomes

3. Efficiency.

Boost your operational and clinical efficiencies.

ExtendedCare helps improve administrative and clinical efficiencies by leveraging digital and video-based workflows to save time and contain costs. Once the patient has left the hospital, follow-up is easy via convenient video visits – minimizing the risk of re-admittance.

4. Education

Increase patient compliance.

ExtendedCare delivers a compelling interactive digital experience that can improve patient compliance. Patients get instant access to educational videos customized to their treatment plans and type of care.

5. Financial Health.

Strengthen Your Facility’s Financial Performance.

  • Higher HCAHPS patient satisfaction survey scores and better Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement.
  • Reduced re-admission rates and shorter average length-of-stay.
  • Better patient loyalty and retention.
  • Higher operational efficiency and more profitable clinical partnerships.
  • Scalable information aggregation and data insights.
