UCHealth Leverages PatientIQ to Quantify the Effectiveness of Orthopedic Procedures

How CU Medicine Leverages PatientIQ to Maintain a Center of Excellence Designation

To achieve a Center of Excellence designation, our partners at the University of Colorado Medicine (CU Medicine) go above and beyond to provide advanced, specialized care for patients with complex medical conditions and continue to set the bar for healthcare organizations across the country. To best serve their patients, CU Medicine providers must collect the right information at the right time to ensure patient safety, quality of care and optimize patient engagement.

Since October 2019, we have been working with CU Medicine to empower their clinical teams with a modern, electronic health record (EHR) integrated platform with solutions for outcomes, patient engagement, research, and analytics. Care teams can remotely monitor patients’ healing and recovery, send timely information related to treatment plans, and gain data-driven insights into how to best treat patients over time. UCHealth needed a solution that quickly integrates into their existing system and starts providing value for their team right away to ensure the highest level of care. We built our platform for the in-demand clinician who cannot afford any disruptions to their workflow. From streamlined EHR-integrations to an easy-to-use interface for both patients and care teams, we significantly decrease the time it takes to collect outcomes on every patient who walks through the clinic doors. We integrated our solutions into their instance of the Epic EHR in just thirteen business days from kick-off to our go-live date.

In less than 18 months, CU Medicine providers have now enrolled over 50,000 patients into over 50 custom digital care pathways to automate patient-reported outcome measures, satisfaction surveys, and custom forms, paired with educational content, reminders, and more. Our solutions adapt to nearly every area of medicine where the quality of care metrics are essential. UCHealth has quickly realized the value our solutions bring to other departments and has since expanded beyond just orthopedics into neurosurgery, physical medicine & rehabilitation, and physical therapy.

“As medicine evolves from a fee for service, volume-based care to how your patients are doing or quality of care metric, PatientIQ and collecting the status can be essential to prove that different interventions are effective and should be coverable by insurance. It's going to be an essential part of the orthopedic pathway moving forward,” says Dr. Jamie Genuario, an Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist at the UCHealth Steadman Hawkins Clinic.

We are incredibly grateful to work alongside some of the top-tier medical professionals in the country who are as passionate as we are about pushing the boundaries of medicine, and we’re honored to play a role in continuing to define CU Medicine as a Center of Excellence.
