OnDemand: Healthcare Delivery Design
Duration: One hour
Healthcare Delivery Design from the Patient's Perspective
After battling COVID-19 for almost two years, health systems have made tremendous gains in testing, treatment and protective measures such as masks, social distancing and vaccines. Event as the pandemic continues, our health care systems strive to deliver safe, efficient, coordinated, quality, cost-effective care, and are incorporating metrics and algorithms to measure effectiveness. What would we find if we looked beyond metrics and algorithms and saw health care through the eyes of an actual patient? Have you ever wondered what lessons you could learn and insights you could gain from examining our health care design from the patient's perspective?
This session discusses the COVID-19 journey of one patient: the presenter. It begins with the COVID diagnosis in the ED, through hospitalization and discharge to a "hospital at home" monitoring program, and concludes with a primary care follow-up visit. Ms. Ali shares lessons learned and insight gained through retrospective reflection and analysis of events as a patient and health care professional. She highlights how efficient quality processes, care coordination and remote monitoring (telehealth) contributed to her recovery as she engaged with two health systems.
