“That is where the dots are connected. Automated solutions have a challenge,
which is engagement – keeping patients engaged in the experience, and our assertion is that conversational AI bots take the interaction to a different level
to solve that challenge of engagement.”
-Treloar

“Across the continuum of patients that have chronic diseases, there
are patients trying to figure out how to manage their conditions and clinical
care teams need automated assistance to help patients gain better literacy
about their condition and better adherence to the disease management
program in which they find themselves.” 
-Haggard

EPISODE RECAP

During this episode, our host Nate Treloar (President at Orbita) explores the role of conversational AI in proactive outreach and remote patient monitoring with Orbita's Director of Sales for Healthcare & Strategic Accounts Jeff Haggard.

These technology solutions alleviate burden on clinicians, create meaningful efficiencies, help health systems and payers connect better with their patients/members, and provide patients with invaluable support and clinical resources on-demand, 24/7 in their homes. Proactive outreach and remote monitoring powered by conversational AI include voice and chat communication, personalized care suggestions and reminders, real-time data collection and reporting to the healthcare provider - and more. With this type of personalized support and outreach, patients are more likely to adhere to their care plan outside of the walls of the healthcare organization.

As you listen to this podcast episode, you'll gain insights on the following and more:

    • The difficulties patients face in maintaining communication with their care team from outside of the healthcare organization
    • The role of proactive outreach in reducing care gaps and connecting the dots in a patient’s care journey
    • How to transform remote patient monitoring strategies with a variety of digital tools to alleviate burdens on healthcare providers and fully support patients

Orbita’s virtual assistants empowered by conversational AI enable healthcare organizations to proactively deliver news, reminders, and other resources directly into the hands of patients through automated campaigns. Anticipatory reminders and educational reinforcement can help healthcare organizations get ahead of non-adherence and declining motivation. 

This outreach is one piece of a digital front door strategy that transforms one-way care communication into interactive and meaningful multi-directional information exchange by permanently opening a door for patients to access a wide variety of resources. With a defined, easily-accessible path to question-answering services, scheduling, and symptom-checking, patients can have the digital tools they need to at the start of their care journey to achieve success.
