GetWellNetwork launches patient engagement tool

Bethesda, Md.-based GetWellNetwork will roll out its Person Engagement Index to measure patients' ability to actively participate in their healthcare.

The index generates a patient-specific score reflecting the likelihood the patient will engage with his or her healthcare based on an 18-question survey. The survey assesses and scores four factors — engagement, technology use, proactive approach and psychosocial support.

"Ultimately, we envision PEI scores sitting front and center in clinical charts and EHRs for millions of patients across the world," said Michael O'Neil, founder and CEO of GetWellNetwork. "Armed with this unique, patient-centered data point, clinicians will be empowered in real time to prescribe more personalized interventions and meet patients where they are in their care journey."

The company will unveil the product March 21 at the 2017 Beryl Institute's Patient Experience Conference in Denver.
