Mobile solutions for patients are growing in number and scope and can potentially overcome major barriers to patient communication and access. The more technology grows from a portable mobility perspective, the better outcomes there will be for patients overall.
There are now thousands of ways providers can connect with patients, and patients can use data, over mobile platforms. Mobile solutions for patients like patient portals and telehealth platforms, which may already be implemented, constantly offer new possibilities that providers can explore through conversations with their vendors. The FHIR apps site, shows multiple applications that help bring data to a central point and display it in ways that are meaningful to patients. All these are compatible with Allscripts solutions.
By discussing technology with their patients, providers can learn how they use mobile solutions in their daily lives, as well as their comfort level using these for healthcare. Knowing this level of engagement, providers can build the most effective engagement with each patient using the tools available, not only offering the most appropriate solutions to patients but also learning what solutions patients may have found for themselves.
Both providers and patients can advocate for themselves and their healthcare. Providers can remain in conversation with their vendors, learning about new solutions that work best for themselves and their patients. Patients can recognize what their technology style is, and be open to engaging with their provider. With so many options available, mobile solutions can serve anyone, regardless of their technology background.
