Meet Matt. He’s an avid rock climber, and unfortunately got into a bit of an accident that left him with a broken foot.
So, Matt makes an appointment with Dr. Jones to get it checked out. Dr. Jones provides him with quality care, but there’s a problem.
You see, during the appointment, Matt has a lot going through his mind, such as what he’s going to do on Saturday afternoons when he can no longer go rock climbing with his friends. So, like 80 percent of patients, he forgets what Dr. Jones tells him by the time he gets to the parking lot.
Did he say to stay on crutches for six or eight weeks?
Uh, which bone did he say I broke again?
And when doctors aren’t sure how patients are doing, it can be hard to deliver care.
This is why communication is important in healthcare – and how technology can play a big role in that.
Duet Health is solving this problem by developing a patient communication software that makes it easier for doctors to stay in touch with their patients.
Matt’s journey doesn’t stop when he leaves the doctor’s office, which is why he’s able to receive reminders for his next appointment. After all, someone needs to remind him what time his surgery is so he’s not late that morning.
Even when his surgery is over, he can track how his foot is doing with care journals and easily communicate when something isn’t feeling right.
Duet Health benefits Dr. Jones as well by reducing patient admissions, collecting patient outcomes, and giving him a way to easily communicate with patients. Plus, using technology lets him focus on higher priority patients.
The right technology creates a better healthcare experience for both patients and providers. Just ask Matt and Dr. Jones.
