VisionTree®, a leader in cloud-based, electronic patient reported outcomes (ePROs), patient engagement, population health and multi-center research/registry solutions, announced today that SAH Care has implemented a new tool to further its practice of excellence. As of July 2017, SAH has implemented VistionTree Optimal Care (VTOC) for its patients. The new system improves communication of patient information and important clinical data to providers which can streamline workflow and result in more efficient delivery of care. It also empowers patients to report and communicate to their providers, the health issues that can impact care. This improves decision making for providers and can result in better outcomes for patients.
SAH Care physicians continually seek the most effective methods of collecting important data in real time in order to respond to emerging patient conditions. The benefits provided by the VTOC system in this regard were supported in a recent study presented during the 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting. The study shows that "...using a web-based reporting system that alerts the care team about (patient) problems leads to actions that alleviate suffering and improve patient outcomes. Symptom self-reporting engages patients as active participants and may improve the experience, efficiency, and outcomes of care. Electronic patient-reported symptom monitoring may be considered for implementation as a part of high-quality cancer care".
SAH has partnered with VisionTree to help propel these best practices into each of our facilities, in the best interests of the patients we serve. The VisionTree platform delivers benefits to SAH Care patients by optimizing patient engagement with outcome driven pathways. It is an important improvement in the continuum of care, and supports the SAH Care mission, that the VTOC system improves the quality of life for patients by increasing communication between them and their care team members. VisionTree's presence in the MENA/EU market continues to grow and expand, including its newest distributor office in MENA/EU located in Bahrain.
