Digital Health

Accelerating Patient Reported Outcomes

On a special edition of the Accelerate Health podcast, we continue our series of spotlights on unique digital health startups that are changing the face of healthcare. Each of these companies will also be featured at the hybrid event for HIMSS Global Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas this August.

Collecting patient information via paper forms is often time consuming for both patients and care providers. It is often difficult for patients to answer these questions because they are in pain or not feeling well. In this episode, Accelerate Health's Mary Sheridan speaks with Rami Elsabeh, the chief product officer of DTX Med, a patient reported outcomes (PRO) platform that is expanding to include additional messaging and communications functions.

This type of platform allows clinicians to automate and digitize the capture of patient-generated information, both pre- and post-visit, that is often collected via paper forms today. In use for research and clinical care, the platform allows users to customize questions, presentations, and logic to accommodate a variety of clinical scenarios and includes analytics tools to help triage and report collected information to streamline workflows.

Elsabeh offers several use cases where current users have deployed the platform, including for diabetes care and a spinal surgery clinic. Elsabeh and Sheridan discuss a look ahead at the growth of PRO and other patent-generated health data likely to continue in the post-COVID care world. Platforms like DTX are positioned to help practices whose digitization has been driven by COVID streamline these new workflows as care settles into a new normal.
