Allina Health Joins Forces with PatientWisdom, Inc. to Improve Patient Engagement

Digital health platform delivers actionable insights about what matters to patients

NEW HAVEN, CT, 06 March 2019 – PatientWisdom, Inc., the digital health company with a suite of solutions that improve health and care by listening to patients, providers, and community members – individually and at scale – today announced that Allina Health in Minneapolis, MN will launch the PatientWisdom solution.

“Knowing what matters to our patients is the key to delivering on our promise of Whole Person Care,” explains Dr. Penny Wheeler, CEO of Allina Health. “PatientWisdom is the effective tool we’ve been looking for.”

PatientWisdom is a mobile-responsive website that offers seamless integration with electronic health record (EHR) systems and patient portals. Before a visit, patients complete templated stories to securely share information about themselves, their health, and their care.  PatientWisdom distills the information into an at-a-glance inSIGHT summary that helps care teams understand what matters to patients as people.

The results are promising: Providers confirm that it only takes about 15 seconds to review the PatientWisdom inSIGHT summary in the EHR before seeing a patient; 90% of patients report that PatientWisdom improves communication with the providers who use it; 95% rate their visit as going extremely well, a marked improvement over baseline scores; and use has been associated with a meaningful reduction in new-patient no show rates.

Allina Health joins other forward-leaning health organizations including Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Healthcare Transformation Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, OSF HealthCare, and Yale New Haven Health in using PatientWisdom.

“We are delighted to be working with Allina Health – I’m a big fan of their vision for Whole Person Care,” said Dr. Gregory Makoul, Founder and CEO of PatientWisdom, Inc. “The interest in PatientWisdom at all of our partners reinforces the power of making it safe and easy to focus on what matters to patients.”
