Microsoft HealthVault users can now transfer their health data to Allscripts' patient platform

Allscripts is making its patient engagement platform FollowMyHealth available to Microsoft HealthVault users to transition their health data to before Microsoft shuts down its service in November.

Three things to know:

1. Microsoft is set to discontinue its patient medical records management service HealthVault by Nov. 20, after which any data stored on the platform will be deleted.

2. Allscripts' FollowMyHealth mobile app is free to sign up for and allows consumers and patients to share their health information with family and healthcare providers.

3. FollowMyHealth also includes features such as connecting wireless goal-tracking devices and maintaining a health journal.

Empowering patient safety, improving outcomes and increasing satisfaction

Patients consistently express that they want to be engaged in the decisions being made about their treatment plan. Those who are active participants in their own care or the care of their loved ones ultimately have better outcomes. The question is how do we get each and every patient engaged?

To improve patient engagement, we must listen carefully to patient experiences and learn from each interaction. Here is a story of what patient-centered care means to Lisa Danielpour, mother of two and Vice President of the University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital Patient and Family Partnership Council.

The start of a healthcare journey

“My son, Josh, had a very active, happy, normal childhood until the age of 13, when he developed symptoms that led to the discovery he had inflammatory bowel disease (IBD),” Danielpour said.

As he got sicker, his disease would not respond to standard treatments. The inflammation in his colon had spread to his entire digestive tract, causing him to remain hospitalized for 7 months.

Discovering complex, rare conditions

The family flew to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to seek treatment from its pediatric IBD center. Clinicians there understood the likely path of Josh’s disease and recommended a medication.

“Josh responded, but it was a very long recovery,” Danielpour said. During his extended stay, it was discovered that his progress was hindered by other complicating conditions, including liver disease and avascular necrosis in his right hip.

“Thankfully, at least, it was early stage, and his liver counts have normalized. It was overwhelming in the beginning,” Danielpour said.

Managing care across multiple providers and organizations

Because Josh's medical diagnosis is so complex, it’s important that continuous monitoring, care plan adherence and real-time information remain top priorities.

“His specialists have coached my husband and I about the diagnosis. What lab results they look at and what do the results mean? What are the warning signs we should watch for?” Danielpour said.

Danielpour credits the availability of personal health information and the ability to engage with his care team at the appropriate times as invaluable for independently monitoring lab results.

The patient engagement’s role in patient-centered care

Empowering patients and family members by enabling easy to information is the definition of patient engagement. It enhances the patient experience, safety and quality. It gives people with chronic illness or complex medical diagnosis real-time tools that allow them to become active participants in their care journey.

"I love that I can log in and see real time results, "normal, normal, normal, normal. Uh oh. Red flag," Danielpour said. “We can see the detailed outcomes of Josh’s various specialized MRIs and I can message back and forth with a physician.”

For patients seeking care from across multiple hospitals, outpatient services providers and ambulatory care providers, a patient engagement solution such as FollowMyHealth®, provides real time access to information across all care providers.

How patient-centered care enhances patient safety

“Providing a collaborative, patient- and family-centered culture that listens to and respects the patient and family voice helps ensure everyone is on the same page and that the care plan is clear,” Danielpour said.

One way the patient engagement solutions support patient safety is by enabling patients an easy way to access their lab and test results. Another way is by enabling secure communication with their providers—so that questions are answered in a timely manner.  

The future of patient engagement

The most important themes in fostering patient engagement are communication, inclusion, responsibility, education and satisfaction.

Enabling patients and families to view information real-time and reflect on the agreed upon care plan prevents potential misunderstandings and enables clear communication.

By offering real time lab results, access to care plans, and ongoing education in one place, Josh and his care team get a holistic view of his past and present medical history.

At the end of the day, this is about quality outcomes and keeping patient’s retention and loyalty. Thank you to Lisa for sharing her perspective. You can find more on the value of patient-centered care by reading our recent eMagazine on Patient Safety.

Community Health Systems (CHS) announced that the Apple Health Records app for iPhones is now available to patients at approximately 100 CHS-affiliated hospitals. CHS worked with its EHR maker Allscripts' FollowMyHealth team to deploy Apple Health Records. 

WHY IT MATTERS

Apple Health Records helps users to visualize and securely store their health records, allowing them to aggregate records from multiple institutions alongside their patient-generated data, creating a more holistic view of their health.

Patients who have received care from a CHS-affiliated participating hospital can use their iPhones to receive and store details from their medical records, ranging from allergies and conditions to procedures and vitals.

Patients can also include information about immunizations, labs, and medications, as well as receive notifications whenever their data is updated.

HealthGrid CEO On Empowering Patients In The Current Health System

Raj Toleti comes from a family of physicians and has been around the healthcare industry his entire life. Having a front row seat has led the CEO of HealthGrid to come to a significant conclusion:

“Patients are not empowered [in the health system],” he says. “So that’s where my journey has led me. I started in the late 1990s building technology that could empower and educate patients to get a better outcome.”

Toleti, an entrepreneur at heart, had his first go-around in this arena as CEO and founder of Galvannon, which made the first commercially available patient self-service kiosk and software platforms to automate patient check-in and intake processes at hospitals. He sold that company to NCR and a few years later started another patient engagement company, which he helped run for five years.

By 2015, Toleti was at it again—starting and building up HealthGrid, which offers an enterprise mobile patient communication platform. Last year, Toleti sold HealthGrid to Allscripts for $60 million to be part of its larger health IT ecosystem. Chief Executive spoke to Toleti, who remains CEO of HealthGrid, about how the deal went down, educating providers on the benefits of investing in patient engagement and more. Below are excerpts from the conversation.

How Did The Allscripts Acquisition Happen And Why Is It Beneficial To Both Companies?

Allscripts has been very active from an M&A perspective, they’ve been able to bring together multiple [electronic medical record] systems and other technologies. Some of Allscripts’ customers…started to see FollowMyHealth (Allscripts’ patient portal product) as a best of breed patient portal, but said if you combine capabilities such as HealthGrid with FollowMyHealth, one and one can truly become more. [Allscripts CEO] Paul Black and [Allscripts’ executive] Jim Hewitt and others at Allscripts started talking to their own customer base, it was a pattern for them [to hear] that this potential combination would truly empower the customers of the patients.

So [the fall of 2017], Allscripts reached out to me… and basically we had multiple discussions, to [determine] if we felt philosophically there was a level of synergy between both organizations. And we truly felt there was a mind melt there. We’re now seeing that traction with our customer base.

Having said that, 80 percent of my customers were non-Allscripts, like Cerner, etc. At the end of the day, if you ask us what our lead is in the marketplaces, it’s that every other EMR [company] still focuses on their patient portal as their primary patient engagement capability, and we do not. So, to leapfrog that and provide engagement to 70, 80, 90 percent as opposed to patient portal engagement rates of five or 10 percent across the industry, you need something like HealthGrid. That’s what Allscripts realized and saw the synergies.

What Are Some Of The Challenges HealthGrid Faces On A Day-To-Day Basis?

Allscripts has been one of the top three vendors for us to basically inorganically get a customer base that we can rapidly roll this out to and truly create change. Government compliance patient engagement metrics basically dwindled down to like one patient sending a secure message. I mean, we as a country have reduced the thresholds we’re shooting for. So, for us to grow the business and make an impact in the society, we truly felt that we needed to partner with one of the top vendors in the space. By partnering with Allscripts, we found a way to overcome the challenge of growing our business quickly.

What do we face from a day-to-day perspective in terms of championing this mission of empowering patients? Every time you’re in a healthcare organization, we find ourselves educating the healthcare organization on where they can begin their patient engagement journey. You can start with point of care. You can start with pre-care. You can start by automating certain things for the patient. Today the industry knows that it needs to have an effective patient engagement platform, but sometimes they’re challenged as to where they need to startbecause a number of initiatives might already be in play or multiple departments are trying to do the same thing. So, one challenge is actually creating the strategy around the patient engagement journey for healthcare organizations.

What Advice Do You Have To CEOs Who Are Trying To Figure Out How To Empower Consumers In Healthcare?

Every CEO that we talked to, patient engagement is one of their top three objectives. They have their mindshare around consumer engagement. One thing I say to CEOs is you need to have a roadmap of how to implement your patient engagement strategy. There are so many points of entry. You can do check ins, you can do gap-in-care outreach…there are multiple capabilities for a patient that you can automate. Having a clear patient engagement strategy for their own organization is going to be key. The way that they can actually get to that is to look at the current initiatives that are already in play and then  put that against the backdrop of a comprehensive patient engagement strategy. If you have 20 things that you can do in this comprehensive patient engagement strategy, maybe you’re already doing five things and how do you take those five things that you’re already doing and bring to bear the best of their capabilities without any disruption? That’s really how they should be thinking about embarking upon patient engagement.

Allscripts CEO Paul Black On Navigating Healthcare’s Major Changes

In his first few months on the job, Allscripts CEO Paul Black made a few big splash acquisitions and set the company on the path towards single product integration.

“We spent a lot of money on research and development for internal growth that yielded us several applications [within our main electronic health record product] around ambulatory, emergency room, patient accounting, records management, and radiology uses. In the first part of this decade, all those things weren’t necessarily sourced from Allscripts and now they are. We have a single platform capability that didn’t exist [when he first got to Allscripts],” says Black, who was brought onto the Chicago-based health IT company in late 2012.

More than that though, Black understood that the tide shifts in the healthcare industry meant that patient encounters weren’t necessarily going to be limited within the four walls of a hospital or doctor’s office. The company developed and invested in software platforms around population health, consumer, and precision medicine—to create a fuller picture of the patient’s health.

As healthcare providers get paid for their outcomes—rather than the number of times they see a patient—this kind of data will be integral to improving someone’s health. “From a leadership standpoint…the number one thing for us is to have a bold and accurate vision about not only what we need to do to be relevant, but also how to help our clients get to where they are today to where they need to be in the future,” he says.

Consumer Foucs

A big part of this future is consumer-driven healthcare. When Black came to Allscripts in late 2012, the health IT industry was very much focused on meaningful use compliance, as part of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) of 2009. In that sense, “consumer health” was simply a matter of getting patients to be able to view, download and transmit their patient record.

A lot has changed since then. Whether its traditional health IT companies like Allscripts or consumer tech companies like Amazon, there is a movement to connect patients to different data points at all times. This goes beyond the Fitbit and steps trend, but includes tracking data around physical AND behavioral health, nutrition, diet and exercise.

 

 “All the things that have to deal with the mind, body and soul of a human,” Black says. In a sense people are adopting these data points anyway. One research report indicates the mobile health app market was valued at $28 billion last year and will grow to $102 billion by 2023.

But even more than just tracking data, Black says his vision is an easier experience for the patient, to be able to access this information in one set place, rather than logging into “15 different apps that do and say the same thing.”

“It may have started with meaningful use and connecting to the patient record, but to me it’s a broader idea of once you get that information, what else can you do to provide more efficient and effective care for the patient?”

Collaborations and trust

In an industry suddenly flush with large-scale collaboration from non-traditional players, Allscripts announced at least one major partnership with a consumer tech company this year. In January, Allscripts and Microsoft agreed to work together to help connect patients with clinical trials at the point of care.

As an industry insider looking at some of these high-profile collaborations, such as CVS-Aetna, Black says companies are repurposing the assets they already possess to extend their networks and capabilities. It’s not uncommon to see this kind of collaboration in other industries, he notes. But Black says these new companies have to scale, while still being able to maintain a close connection with consumers. This will be no easy task.

For CEOs trying to navigate this changing landscape, Black offers a few pieces of advice. “I think it’s important to be agile, it’s important to be entrepreneurial. You have to have an environment and culture where you innovate. You have to have an eye for what’s going to happen in the future. Not just a vision for your company, but in the context of where healthcare is going and how you can have a longstanding imprint.”

He also says it’s important to have an element of trust with the teams you’re working with—not just internally and with clients, but with those outside collaborators. “That’s been one of the things about our company, if you’ve talked with people who’ve worked with us…that’s something we stress a lot…I asked my people to hire trustworthy people and we have a culture that rewards that.”

Allscripts plots growth in health IT

Chicago-based Allscripts Healthcare Solutions has further solidified its position in the connected health platform space with its acquisition of HealthGrid — and an Allscripts executive says more M&A activity is ahead.

Allscripts — which provides physician practices, hospitals, and other health care providers with practice management and electronic health record technology — acquired the health care IT division of McKesson for $185 million in cash last fall before laying out another $100 million to pick up Silicon Valley's Practice Fusion electronic health record platform earlier this year. The company closed its $60 million cash deal for HealthGrid in May. Improving the level of patient engagement with providers – while boosting Allscripts' customer base and product portfolio — was the driving force behind each of these deals, according to Jim Hewitt, executive vice president of solutions development for Allscripts, who sat down with Crain's last week to discuss the string of acquisitions — and hint at what's ahead.

"We firmly believe there will be continued consolidation in the health IT market, down to maybe three to four major players," Hewitt said. "We're doing what we need to do to make sure we are one of those three." The deal with McKesson represented a synergistic fit, he said, while the HealthGrid acquisition was all about snapping up a patient-engagement tool that will be valuable to Allscripts going forward.

That tool was the brainchild of Raj Toleti, the co-founder of HealthGrid who was recently honored as "Entrepreneur of the Year" for Florida in the health care technology category. Toleti previously founded (and later sold) two other companies in this same field of patient engagement technology, Galvanon and Cytura. He launched HealthGrid in early 2015 with an emphasis on incorporating smartphone technology into the provider-patient equation.

Patients are becoming more and more comfortable with communicating with their health care providers and their office staffs online — and especially via smartphone. Integrating HealthGrid with Allscripts' existing platform, called FollowMyHealth, will make life easier for patients and health care workers, providing a single platform for accessing test results and medical history, booking appointments, paying outstanding bills, and completing myriad other functions.

"We truly believe patient engagement is going to be a platform play," Toleti said. "Patients want one, unified platform across care settings."

From point of care to mobile communication: Patient engagement spans the entire healthcare journey

A healthy patient might spend as little as 15 to 30 minutes with his or her primary care doctor during the course of a year.

Add chronic health conditions to the mix, and that same patient will spend an average of 15 hours with his or her doctor out of 8,760 total hours in a year. Whether 15 minutes or 15 hours, point of care visits are critical milestones in a patient’s health journey.

Changing the Default: Using Human-Centered Design to Boost Patient Engagement

Too often, health systems put up a patient web portal, pass out instructions, and then ― like the builders in the “Field of Dreams” ― wait for people to show up. But the vast majority of patients never make the trip.

That’s because the web-based portal doesn’t meet today’s healthcare consumers where most live, which is on their phones. Only 5 to 10 percent of patients interact with web portals, while up to 90 percent instead engage via messaging pushed to them via texts or other mobile methods. More than 80 percent of patients prefer to interact via mobile devices today. As a result, today’s healthcare providers need a solution that changes the default. They need solutions that do not require patients to log in to a patient portal. They need solutions that deliver SMS messages “just in time,” with weblinks making it easy to execute specific care tasks for pre-care, point-of-care and post-care.
