It was a busy summer! We wrapped up a successful upgrade of our embedded view within Epic and made great strides in handling remote monitoring at scale. On the operations front, we launched two studies at Penn Medicine focused on improving patient experience and outcomes among cancer patients. We also launched versions of Heart Safe Motherhood at other local Philadelphia hospitals.
After multiple conversations with our clinical users, our team focused our efforts to redesign the Way to Health (W2H) Epic Embed. The goal was to streamline the clinician experience. The new design makes viewing a patient enrolled in a W2H program easier and optimizes the experience for the clinician. Here are some changes you can expect to see.
From the very beginning of the COVID pandemic, Way to Health (W2H) has worked with Penn Medicine to implement numerous remote-monitoring programs across the health system. In implementing these programs, we scaled the number of people enrolled in a W2H program exponentially - going from ~70,000 to ~1,250,000 participant accounts in one year. This was a massive accomplishment for W2H, but it also meant that we needed to scale the platform to accommodate the change in user volume. Therefore, we focused our efforts in July 2021 on improving W2H performance at scale.
