Patient Reported Outcome Measures for Clinicians and Hospitals

Every doctor wants to know how their patients are doing. Every hospital needs to understand the impact of their services on patients’ quality of life. Collecting the right information at the right time can pave the way for more efficient delivery of care.

By collecting Patient Reported Outcomes

doctors are able to:

  • Better understand patient profiles and select the best care of treatment
  • Identify best practices
  • Involve patients in their own care, which increases adherence
  • Make efficient use of face-to-face consultation time
  • Collect data for research purposes

and hospitals can:

  • Reduce unnecessary costs
  • Improve quality in a measurable way
  • Foster trust between patient and institution
  • Demonstrate high-quality care to payers

Go digital with heartbeat

Heartbeat offers digital solutions to optimize workflows, save time in the daily clinical routine and automate the tracking of Patient Reported Outcomes (PROMs).

Our system enables healthcare organizations to collect the data that makes the difference.

Digital patient screening

Heartbeat collects all the necessary information to assess a patient’s health status so that clinicians can review diagnostically relevant information before even seeing the patient. It saves valuable time and helps identify risks at a glance. Using our system, health care providers can identify the best course of treatment, document its implementation in real time and track patient outcomes following the procedure.

Automated Follow-Up and Patient Monitoring

By automatically following up with patients, our system ensures that doctors learn from their cases. Patients are surveyed on their health at pre-determined time intervals. Our automatic return rates are up to 83%.1

Analytics & Benchmarking

Patients’ quality of life improves when care teams use PROMs to make decisions.2,3

Our system allows real-time reporting at individual and group-level, enabling care teams to identify what works and what doesn’t and take immediate action.
