Use case example: Gain Efficiencies and Improve Care Using Big Data
Access information as it’s needed, on reliable and secure devices.
Healthcare providers can gain a competitive edge with smarter networking, devices and logistics.
A large healthcare provider wants to make its mobile caregivers more efficient in order to help improve patient care and remain competitive in the home care industry. The provider’s strategy of assigning caregivers to patients based on workload—not taking into account caregiver specialty or appointment time frames and locations—was not meeting the needs of either group. Additionally, caregivers were required to submit several manual reports following each patient visit, slowing down the process even more.
The Verizon Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) solution delivers an easy way to track and monitor home care visits and patient services. This can also help providers address the 2020 and 2023 EVV mandates for Medicaid programs.
By deploying our Workforce Management solution, healthcare providers can speed up and streamline communications processes. Workforce Management simplifies communications because it includes an electronic mobile forms app for use with 4G LTE devices and a Mobile Device Management solution.
In addition, Verizon Intelligent Locator can help improve how providers manage logistics and collect data on assets and staff workflow. With Intelligent Locator, the provider can keep track of and manage high-value equipment, supplies and inventory. Caregivers can locate the equipment they need when they need it, and quickly and more effectively connect doctors with patients.
The provider can also expand its IoT portfolio using Verizon ThingSpace to develop, manage and market a healthcare-device monitoring solution.
