SOUTH BEND, July 7 /PRWeb/ --South Bend Orthopaedics(SBO), a nationally recognized orthopedic practice, announced today it has expanded its partnership with PatientIQ,a leading healthcare technology company that derives actionable insights from patient outcomes data. The expansion will enable SBO to facilitate continuous quality improvement and enhance the patient experience.
High-quality care delivery is a strategic priority for SBO and a key driver of its initial interest in PatientIQ. SBO first partnered with the healthcare technology company to facilitate research and understand how treatment decisions, medical devices, and other variables impact clinical outcomes. By expanding use of the PatientIQ platform across the organization, SBO will now be able to leverage analytical insights at the point of care, provide patient education, benchmark outcomes, and more comprehensively assess the quality of care it provides patients across Indiana.
“Modern clinical care is a two-way exchange,” said Dr. AJ Mencias, President of South Bend Orthopaedics. “We need to holistically understand how our actions impact patient outcomes, and that requires the ability to collect and provide patients with important health information. PatientIQ is an invaluable partner in that effort.”
The PatientIQ platform automatically enrolls patients into digital care pathways that collect and measure patient-reported outcomes at key points during the care journey. These pathways also proactively provide patients with educational materials relative to conditions, procedures, diet and lifestyle modifications, and more.
“Improving patient outcomes requires empowering the patient with the information they need to be successful, and our platform was built on that understanding,” said Matt Gitelis, CEO, PatientIQ. “We are eager to help SBO extend its reach with its patient population and further its ability to comprehensively assess the quality of its care delivery.”
Expansion with South Bend Orthopaedics follows a $20 million series b fundraise for PatientIQ, as well as the addition of Aligned Orthopaedics to its customer portfolio. PatientIQ customers include multi-specialty practices, hospitals and health systems, healthcare payers, and industry partners across the country.
