Modifying Behavior Changes in Diabetic Patients Outside Facility Walls
Managing the increasing number of patients who have chronic conditions including diabetes, using traditional methods is challenging and often ineffective. Historically, successful patient education has been conducted during office visits or hosted educational sessions, both of which are costly and time consuming. By creating a direct connection between patient and clinician, YourCare Management improves upon current methods and extends care beyond the facility for an optimal experience and better healthcare outcomes.
Currently, Diabetes is primarily managed by the patient outside the providers office with little to no interaction with their provider. Often this is an ineffective way for patients to manage their condition as there are many tasks they must follow on a routine basis while logging and tracking activities in progress. The YourCare Continuum* connects the clinician to their patients, because we know that when a patient’s daily engagement with their provider extends beyond the care facility, health outcomes improve.
Clinicians can now extend their reach and allow patients the flexibility needed to truly take the reins of their own care and make the necessary changes in behavior
Increased smartphone adoption and advances in healthcare technology have created the opportunity for clinicians and patients to connect beyond the care center. Clinicians can now extend their reach and allow patients the flexibility needed to truly take the reins of their own care and make the necessary changes in behavior. Our app provides access to three critical services:
- Privacy and security for patients
- Intuitive coach dashboard for clinicians
- Interactive virtual support group
Further, to help patients keep track of health data in real-time the app integrates with hundreds of health and wellness devices.
YourCare Continuum can improve health outcomes and reduce readmissions by:
- Creating clear lines of communication between patients and clinicians
- Taking patient education out of the office and into the home
- Establishing a virtual community of peers from which the patient can draw support
