New Marketing Cloud integration with Health Cloud enables caregivers to personalize patient content to improve digital engagement
ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HIMSS 2019 - Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, today delivered new innovations to Salesforce Health Cloud that improve healthcare through connected, intelligent patient engagement. Health Cloud brings the world's #1 CRM to healthcare, enabling providers like Piedmont Healthcare and 180 Health Partners to personalize patient interactions and improve outcomes. With new Social Determinants of Health capabilities, care teams have a complete patient profile, empowering them to connect the care journey and deliver the personalized experiences that patients expect.
Healthcare and life science organizations are awash with data, thanks to years of heavy investment in EHR systems. While that has improved operations and offered new opportunities for patient care, surfacing the right data at the right time to the right provider remains a challenging process. Capturing and surfacing data to caregivers is an important step to personalizing patient experiences and helping address preventable conditions or mitigate chronic disease.
"As a not-for-profit, community health system, it is critical that we put the patient experience at the center of everything we do," said Andrew Chang, Executive Director of Marketing and Physician Outreach at Piedmont Healthcare. "Salesforce has enabled us to engage with our patients and help them get easier access to care, on their terms, by personalizing how we connect with them and using new ways to book appointments online."
Introducing Salesforce Innovations for Healthcare
Salesforce Health Cloud's new capabilities power complete patient profiles, relevant patient communications, and convenient, connected in-home care, including:
-- Social Determinants of Health: While medical care continues to improve
at a steady pace, that alone cannot address the 80 to 90 percent((1)) of
modifiable contributors to healthy outcomes, such as living conditions,
socioeconomic status and environmental factors. These social
determinants of health are frequently not identified by care providers,
as systems for tracking and surfacing them are siloed in electronic
health record (EHR) systems that require manual updates and are
difficult to use.Now care providers can capture critical social
determinant information - such as a patient's transportation options,
housing status and care network, and access it in a patient profile -
directly within Health Cloud. This gives the provider a more complete
view of the critical factors that influence wellness, adherence and
outcomes, all on one connected platform. For example, a care provider
that wants to limit a patient's risk for readmission can know if the
patient has access to transportation, or the ability to purchase healthy
meals. Similarly, a life science organization that wants to help
patients adhere to their therapies or properly use their medical devices
can see a patient's employment status and living arrangements, and thus
offer the necessary level of financial and in-home support. A payer
organization can deliver personalized preventive or wellness materials
to members based on the member's education or reading level.
-- Mobile-First In-Home Care Collaboration: Large groups of care providers
are increasingly working together to address patient needs, with care
frequently extending into patient homes. Yet disparate systems used to
manage and connect care coordinators, dispatchers and in-home care
providers limit collaboration. Field Service Lightning can help bring
healthcare teams together on a single platform that meets the strict
standards for sensitive patient data protection, covered by our HIPAA
BAA.With Field Service Lightning for Health Cloud, home health
organizations can connect their entire workforce. Dispatchers can
schedule and send on-site specialists to a home by automating scheduling
based on skills, availability and location. Home nurses can manage cases
in real-time by connecting with other providers using the Field Service
Lightning mobile app.
-- Personalized Patient Journeys: Connecting with patients via the channels
they use most is essential to providing them with a personalized
experience. With a new integration between Health Cloud and Salesforce
Marketing Cloud, providers can personalize campaigns and patient
journeys at scale. Now, providers can segment and enroll patients into
campaigns and journeys, allowing them to monitor clinical and
non-clinical engagements all within Health Cloud. For example, if a
provider is holding a skin care clinic and wants to provide additional
information about sunscreen to patients, they would build a patient list
within Health Cloud, and then use the power of Marketing Cloud to engage
across email, mobile and social channels. Additionally, enhancements to
Health Cloud now display when patients have been added to campaigns,
helping a provider understand every touchpoint in context of the patient
journey, improving the consistency and quality of patient engagement.
In addition, KLAS recognized Salesforce with the Category Leader Award in CRM for Healthcare in its 2019 Best in KLAS: Software and Services, acknowledging Salesforce as the top-ranked solution for providers.
"Our research shows it is increasingly important for healthcare organizations to be patient-centric," said Adam Cherrington, Research Director, Patient Engagement at KLAS Research. "Bringing together social determinants and other data sources to enrich patient profiles and increase care team collaboration is a crucial step for organizations in this regard."
