Outcome Health Announces Partnership with Shatterproof to Break the Stigma Around Addiction

By | News | No Comments

Nationwide campaign will deliver educational and actionable information across digital platform into physician offices

CHICAGO – May 22, 2018 – Outcome Health, a technology company that provides health education at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, today announced a partnership with Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization committed to reducing the stigma associated with addiction. Through this partnership with Outcome Health, Shatterproof can deliver actionable healthcare intelligence to patients via a digital platform — specifically waiting room TVs and exam room wallboards — to physician practices across the country.

“Shatterproof is working to make sure every American has access to treatment based on proven research, without shame and stigma,” said Shannon Hartley, Chief Marketing Officer at Shatterproof. “By partnering with Outcome Health, we can get our evidence-based materials in front of patients while they’re with their doctors making some of the most important decisions about their health and lives.”

It is estimated that approximately 21 million Americans have a substance use disorder (SUD). In fact, drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under 50, killing more Americans than car crashes and guns. According to Shatterproof, scientific evidence proves substance use disorder is indeed a chronic brain disease with viable treatments; despite the research, more than two-thirds of opioid treatment programs don’t even offer medication to the patient.

“The quality of treatment for substance use disorders is decades behind other chronic illnesses,” said Nancy Phelan, Senior Vice President of Life Sciences at Outcome Health. “Cancer and HIV are two diseases that were highly stigmatized for years but through education, the misperceptions have greatly reduced. Through this partnership with Shatterproof, we can reach patients at the point of the care with educational information to help break the stigma around addiction and ultimately save lives.”

Shatterproof recently convened a task force of leading addiction experts to work toward one goal: ensuring every American with a substance use disorder has access to treatment based on proven research. The group developed the National Principles of Care, a standard for addiction treatment based on research, and for the first time, 16 leading healthcare payers have agreed to unite around this standard. The educational resources deployed across Outcome Health’s nationwide platform will explain the science of addiction, include messages to break stigmas, and encourage patients to talk to their doctor about pain management options.

Outcome Health’s platform includes technologies such as the Waiting Room TV, which can promote specialty-specific content and deliver lifestyle management videos to patients’ pre-consultation. It also includes the Exam Room Wallboard, which offers access to 3D anatomical renderings for use during the consultation. Physicians can zoom, rotate and annotate body systems and disease states to give patients a personalized visual of their health.

By | News | No Comments

Organizations Collaborate to Deliver Lupus Information to Physician Offices Across the Country

CHICAGO – May 15, 2018 – Outcome Health, a technology company that provides health education at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, today announced the continuation of an initiative to raise awareness of lupus across the country. The initiative will feature content from The Lupus Initiative® (TLI), a national program of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), and deliver actionable health information to patients in a digital format. Participating physician practices will feature the educational programming on their waiting room TV monitors to patients awaiting care.

“ACR’s Lupus Initiative designs educational programs that increase awareness about lupus, advance health equity, eliminate health disparities, and improve the quality of life for people living with lupus,” said Sheryl McCalla, ACR Senior Director of Collaborative Initiatives. “By working with Outcome Health, we reach people with lupus and people experiencing lupus symptoms nationwide during the critical moments when they’re with their healthcare provider.”

Approximately 160,000 to 322,000 Americans are currently living with lupus and according to the ACR, lupus occurs nine times more often in women than in men. Early diagnosis and treatment of lupus is critical to preventing long-term consequences of the disease.

“There is so much about lupus that remains unknown, therefore it’s critical that we leverage our nationwide network to raise awareness for this disease,” said Anil Harjani, Vice President of Product Management and Strategic Partnerships at Outcome Health. “Outcome Health is proud to work with TLI to provide support for patients, caregivers and survivors.”

In recognition of Lupus Awareness month in May, Outcome Health and TLI will focus on deploying resources to educate patients and providers about the signs and symptoms of lupus across Outcome Health’s nationwide rheumatology network. TLI recently launched a campaign called “Be Fierce. Take Control™”, which encourages women to take control of their health and not ignore possible symptoms of lupus, such as fatigue and joint pain.
Outcome Health’s nationwide network reaches 41,242 practices and its platform includes technologies such as the Waiting Room TV, which can promote specialty-specific content and deliver lifestyle management videos to patients’ pre-consultation.

About The Lupus Initiative
The Lupus Initiative® (TLI) is a multi-faceted education program designed to reduce disparities and improve outcomes among people with lupus. TLI is dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment, and management of lupus in populations disproportionately affected based on race, ethnicity, and gender.

Outcome Health Announces Initiative with Melanoma Research Foundation to Raise Skin Cancer Awareness

By | News

Partnership Will Provide Educational Information to Help Patients Nationwide Take Action to Prevent Skin Cancer

CHICAGO – May 08, 2018 – Outcome Health, which provides health education at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, announced today an initiative with the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF), the largest non-profit in the country working exclusively in the area of melanoma. In recognition of Melanoma Awareness Month in May, Outcome Health and the MRF will collaborate to deliver actionable educational information around melanoma prevention and detection to dermatology and primary care providers across Outcome Health’s nationwide network.

“We believe that informed, empowered patients live longer and better lives and are essential members of their healthcare team,” said Shelby Moneer, Director of Education at the MRF. “By leveraging Outcome Health’s nationwide point-of-care platform, we can educate patients and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma when they’re making some of the most important decisions of their lives.”

According to the MRF, melanoma is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in people ages 15-29 and is the leading cause of cancer death for women ages 25-30. It is estimated that over 178,000 Americans will be diagnosed with melanoma in 2018.

“It’s staggering to learn that 90% of melanoma cases are linked to UV exposure and are considered to be preventable,” said Anil Harjani, Vice President of Product Management and Strategic Partnerships at Outcome Health. “Through this initiative with the MRF, we can distribute educational content to patients across the country to make them aware of the signs and symptoms of melanoma, in addition to providing tips for staying safe and healthy.”

The educational information in this campaign includes self-screening guides for children and adults. It will be deployed across Outcome Health’s platform, which includes technologies such as the Exam Room Wallboard. This interactive product offers access to 3D anatomical renderings for use during the consultation. Physicians can zoom, rotate and annotate body systems and disease states to give patients a personalized visual of their health.

Outcome Health Announces Partnership with Unity Consortium to Raise Awareness For and Take Action On Vaccination

By | News

Nationwide campaign will explain the importance of vaccination for teens and young adults

CHICAGO, IL – April 25, 2018 – Outcome Health, a technology company that provides health education at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, today announced a partnership with Unity Consortium, a broad base of leading public and private organizations focused on improving health through preventive healthcare and vaccination for teens and young adults. Through this partnership with Outcome Health, Unity can deliver actionable healthcare intelligence to patients via a digital platform — specifically waiting room TVs and exam room wallboards — to physician practices across the country.

“Millions of adolescents and young adults in the U.S. are not fully vaccinated according to CDC guidelines and many are unaware that they are missing recommended vaccines,” said Judy Klein, President of Unity Consortium. “Our partnership with Outcome Health will help educate teens, young adults and their parents about vaccines recommended specifically for this age group as well as encourage them to catch up on any missing or late immunizations.”

Vaccines are recommended for adolescents and young adults to protect against diseases like whooping cough, meningococcal disease, and cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), yet despite recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adolescent immunization rates in the U.S. have historically lagged behind coverage goals.

“Vaccination is an essential part of keeping teens and young adults healthy and protected from serious diseases,” said Nancy Phelan, Senior Vice President of Life Sciences at Outcome Health. “The best time for intervention is at the moment of care. In keeping with our mission, Outcome Health is partnering with Unity Consortium to drive positive patient outcomes and help improve the vaccination rates for teens and young adults.”

Outcome Health will begin the campaign with a series of infographics in both English and Spanish so that a larger patient population can understand the critical role teen and young adult vaccination plays in disease prevention. Outcome Health will deliver this message to all primary care, pediatric, and OB-GYN providers across its nationwide network.

Outcome Health’s platform includes technologies such as the Waiting Room TV, which can promote specialty-specific content and deliver lifestyle management videos to patients’ pre-consultation. It also includes the Exam Room Wallboard, which offers access to 3D anatomical renderings for use during the consultation. Physicians can zoom, rotate and annotate body systems and disease states to give patients a personalized visual of their health.

About Unity Consortium
UNITY Consortium is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that brings together diverse groups that share a common and passionate interest in health with a focus on adolescent and young adult preventive healthcare and immunization. Our members represent public and private organizations, industry, academia, healthcare providers, retailers, and advocacy groups.

Outcome Health Announces Partnership with WomenHeart to Bring Cardiovascular Information to Minority Groups

By | News

Partnership Will Provide Actionable Information to Help Women Improve Their Heart Health

CHICAGO – April 02, 2018 – Outcome Health, which provides health education at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, announced today an initiative with WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, the first and only national patient-centered organization solely focused on women’s heart disease. Through this partnership, Outcome Health and WomenHeart will collaborate to deliver actionable educational information to cardiology, primary care, and obstetrics and gynecology providers across Outcome Health’s nationwide network.

“Nearly 1 in 3 Hispanic women have cardiovascular disease and more than 48,000 African American women die from heart disease each year,” said Mary McGowan, WomenHeart CEO. “By partnering with Outcome Health, we can make more women aware of this disproportionate reality in accordance with our mission of ensuring that every woman has access to prevention and early detection, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment.”

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among American women. Currently, over 48 million women are living with or are at risk of heart disease, and CardioSmart reports that more than 432,000 women will die from cardiovascular disease this year.

“The disparity in the dissemination of information about heart disease and its risks, particularly for women of color, is alarming,” said Outcome Health’s Chief Operating Officer, Nandini Ramini. “Through this initiative with WomenHeart, we have the great privilege of raising awareness about the symptoms and treatments of a disease that is responsible for nearly one in four female deaths, yet is often untreated.”

Outcome Health’s platform includes technologies such as the Exam Room Wallboard, which offers access to 3D anatomical renderings for use during the consultation. Physicians can zoom, rotate and annotate body systems and disease states to give patients a personalized visual of their health.

In recognition of Minority Health month in April, the information deployed across Outcome Health’s network will focus on heart disease facts and figures for minorities, specifically African-American and Hispanic women. Outcome Health will deliver this information across its nationwide network of 41,242 practices.

Outcome Health and the Colorectal Cancer Alliance Announce Campaign to Support Patient Education

By | News

Innovative Partnership Will Raise Awareness for Colorectal Cancer Which Is The Third Most Commonly Diagnosed Cancer

CHICAGO, March 28, 2018 – Outcome Health, a technology company that provides health education at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, today announced a partnership with the Colorectal Cancer Alliance (the Alliance) to make patients aware of the signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer. Through this partnership, Outcome Health and the Alliance will deliver actionable healthcare intelligence to patients via digital devices — specifically exam room wallboards — in physician practices across the country.

“Young people, in the prime of their lives, are being diagnosed with colorectal cancer more often and at a later stage than any other age group,” says Sara Geist, Director of Marketing and Communications at the Alliance. “Through our partnership with Outcome Health, we can reach a wider audience and increase awareness to the under fifty community.”

Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, this year, roughly 95,520 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer, 39,910 will be diagnosed with rectal cancer, and 50,260 will die from this disease. Last year, the Alliance surveyed 1,500 young onset colorectal cancer survivors and found that 82% were initially misdiagnosed and 67% saw at least two doctors before being correctly diagnosed with colorectal cancer.

“The Colorectal Cancer Alliance is tirelessly working to raise awareness of and fund critical research for colorectal cancer,” said Anil Harjani, Vice President of Product Management and Strategic Partnerships at Outcome Health. “We are proud to work with the Alliance to provide support for patients, caregivers and survivors.”

In recognition of Colorectal Cancer Awareness month in March, Outcome Health and the Alliance will focus on deploying resources to educate patients and providers about the signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer. Outcome Health will deliver this information to all primary care and gastrointestinal providers across its nationwide network.

Outcome Health’s platform includes technologies such as the Waiting Room TV, which can promote specialty-specific content and deliver lifestyle management videos to patients’ pre-consultation. It also includes the Exam Room Wallboard, which offers access to 3D anatomical renderings for use during the consultation.

Outcome Health Announces Release of Next-Generation Infusion Room Tablet for Oncology Clinics Nationwide

By | News

The tablets offer new features that guide patients through treatment with support resources, empathy and entertainment

CHICAGO, March 08, 2018 – Outcome Health, the health intelligence technology leader that is revolutionizing patient care, today announced the release of the next generation of its Infusion Room Tablet (IRT), a flagship product in the Outcome Health line of products that empower patients at the moment of care. The IRT is designed to assist oncology patients during treatment, creating a more positive experience during lengthy infusions.

“The next generation of Infusion Room Tablets is state-of-the-art and provides more features to make oncology patients more comfortable during treatment,” says Nandini Ramani, Chief Operating Officer of Outcome Health. “Oncology patients often spend up to three hours getting a single treatment, and our new tablets will provide content that helps them pass the time in a more comforting, informative and inspirational way.”

The updated IRTs feature more customizable content, including the ability for providers to share information about the clinic, available clinical trials, condition education, treatment resources, surveys, custom links and more. They also contain a wealth of inspiration and entertainment options, including patient success stories, meditation resources and popular movies. Other new features, such as a “topic selector” button and clearly labeled advertisements, increase ease of use for both clinics and patients.

“As a cancer survivor, the support resources featured on the Infusion Room Tablets play a major role in a patient’s journey by empowering them to be more engaged and successfully complete their treatments,” says Jonny Imerman, founder of Imerman Angels, a non-profit organization providing one-to-one support for cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers. “Whether it’s through meditation exercises, having access to condition information or watching a movie, Outcome Health’s IRT helps support cancer patients through every aspect of their experience.”

“These cutting-edge tablets build on the success of the first-generation Outcome Health IRTs, which are currently deployed in over 650 clinics across the country,” says Andrew Hotle, Product Manager at Outcome Health. “Cancer treatment can be an incredibly difficult experience, both physically and emotionally, and we’re proud to release a product that guides patients through the experience with empathy and positivity.”

“The new interface has been redesigned to be truly patient-centric,” says Michael Gunn, Head of Product Experience at Outcome Health. “We worked with a sample of patients to improve usability and overall experience, while being sensitive to their needs while they spend extended periods of time within the infusion room.” The updated interface uses clear and concise language that speaks directly to the patient, helping them understand what to expect when using the device, how it works, and where to find more information.

With significant improvements to data analytics and reporting, the IRT is now BPA-approved and setting the standard for Outcome Health’s devices. The IRTs are part of the company’s health intelligence platform, a BPA-certified network of more than 152,000 digital devices including waiting room screens, exam and infusion room tablets, exam room wallboards and Wi-Fi access in more than 41,000 physician offices across the country.

“Educating patients on their heart disease risk and the steps they can take toward preventing heart disease are among the highest priorities of the American College of Cardiology,” said Martha Gulati, MD, FACC, editor-in-chief of CardioSmart.org. “Through this partnership, we’ll be able to extend our reach to patients in the Outcome Health network at most risk and give them the tools they need to live a heart healthy lifestyle.”

It also includes the Digital Wallboard, which offers access to 3D anatomical renderings for use during the consultation.

In addition to partnering with the ACC to drive innovation and outcomes across its member network of 52,000 cardiologists and cardiovascular care team members, Outcome Health will deliver resources from CardioSmart to offices across its network of more than 40,000 practices.

Outcome Health Announces Campaign to Raise Awareness During Severe Flu Season

By | News

Network-wide Campaign Will Encourage Flu Shots, Other Precautionary Measures

CHICAGO, February 7, 2018 – Outcome Health, which provides health education at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, announced today that it has launched a flu education campaign across its platform to help patients understand the risk of contracting the flu and how to take precautionary measures. The campaign, ran pro bono with content from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is currently active across more than 80,000 digital devices within the Outcome Health network of 40,000 physician offices and health systems in the country.

“This year’s flu season has been devastating for at-risk populations, including the very young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems, but it has also hit otherwise healthy people unusually hard,” said Anil Harjani Vice President, Product Management & Strategic Partnerships at Outcome Health. “By increasing awareness of the risks and educating patients about how to prevent the spread of influenza, our goal is to keep more people healthy through the duration of flu season and help save lives.”

While flu shots have been available for months, CDC recommends that all unvaccinated individuals get the shot as quickly as possible, as flu season may not have peaked. The CDC also advises that certain groups are at a high risk of developing serious complications if they contract influenza, including pregnant women, children younger than 5, people 65 and older and any individual with certain chronic medical conditions.

The Outcome Health campaign will provide information about protecting those who are unable to get the vaccine, and actions to take if you or someone in your household gets sick. Health officials have confirmed that there has been an increase in the number of people visiting their doctors or health-care providers for flu-like symptoms; therefore, point of care is a powerful tool for patients to learn how to stay healthy.

The CDC says this season’s epidemic is on track to rival the 2014-15 flu season. That year, the CDC estimates 34 million Americans got the flu, with more than 700,000 hospitalized.
