Health Systems have 3 ways to deploy Interactive Treatment Plans at their organization:
- Using Wellpepper templates
- Leveraging the best practices from Mayo Clinic
- Custom Care Plan based on own best practices
We have a partnership with University of Georgia Medical School, that allows residents to join us on rotation for a month. Through this partnership, and with our excellent research partners, we’ve been able to build care plan templates based on best practice templates for over 30 chronic and acute conditions.
Health Systems may choose to implement these Wellpepper Templates, with minimal effort, which makes this deployment option the quickest.
Mayo Clinic Best Practices
At HIMSS 2018, we announced a partnership with Mayo Clinic to make their best practices available on the Wellpepper platform (here). This allows for health systems to leverage interactive care plans developed with Mayo Clinic content. This is also a very fast deployment and only requires a few configuration decisions from the health system.
Custom Care Plans
The third and most commonly selected option, especially for comprehensive care plans, is to develop an interactive treatment plan based on the Health System’s own best practices. These implementations typically take a bit more time to deploy. One of our tenants is if we can’t do better than paper, then we shouldn’t be doing it. Because of this, we’ll spend additional time going through the existing care plan documentation/discharge instructions and provide guidance and recommendations for how to deliver content digitally in context of where the patients are in their care.
For initial deployments, we’ll typically see Health Systems choose to start without EMR integration. This is due to competing priorities with IT and allows the Health System to get up and running more quickly.
Shortly after that initial deployment, or in parallel with, we will start to map out what EMR integration looks like, with the goal of streamlining the clinical experience. The graphic below shows several ways that we integrate with EMRs, with the first step frequently being single sign on for patients and clinicians, followed by an ADT feed to onboard patients.
