DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2012) - Phytel, the leader in automated, provider-led population health improvement, announced today that it has been chosen to make a presentation at the Stanford School of Medicine's Medicine X conference, which will address "the intersection of medicine and emerging technologies."
Phytel's chief technology officer, Patrick Flynn, and its vice president of product management, Russell Olsen, will give their presentation, entitled "Improving Care Coordination and Patient Outcomes with Next Generation eHealth and Population Health Management Tools," on Saturday, September 29, at 4:20 p.m. They will speak at the Paul Berg Auditorium at Stanford University in Stanford, Calif.
Flynn and Olsen will explain how healthcare organizations can apply automation and analytic tools to population health management to improve the health of their patients. A highlight of their talk will be a demonstration of next-generation, web-based applications used by care teams in major healthcare organizations to coordinate and manage care and engage patients more fully in their own healthcare.
Among the tools to be demonstrated in the presentation are:
- Clinical dashboards and eHealth engagement tools
- Automated aggregation and advanced stratification of population health data
- Benchmark reports that measure performance
- Patient summaries that care teams use to identify patient care gaps and risk factors
- Outreach tools to ensure that patients receive appropriate prevent and chronic care.
Success in population health management requires physicians and care teams to strengthen relationships with patients, optimize the services they provide before and during office visits, and extend their reach to remain in contact with patients outside of the office. Along with the use of eHealth, social and mobile technologies, automation tools can help practices achieve these patient intervention goals, while reducing the administrative, clinical and outreach effort that population health management requires of physicians and care teams.
"Phytel's selection as a presenter at this prestigious conference shows the high regard in which our company is held in the medical field," commented Patrick Flynn, CTO of Phytel. "The excellent outcomes of our customers attest to the high quality of our applications and toolsets for population health management. We look forward to telling this story to the attendees at Stanford's Medicine X conference."
