These days we almost expect any large metropolitan, well known hospital, clinic or integrated delivery network to have sophisticated Web portals and on-line tools for patients. We may not expect to find such sophistication at a small community hospital. But, there are exceptions. An example is Mason General Hospital in Shelton, Washington. Mason General is one of the highest rated, most-wired small hospitals in the United States. It is truly on the leading edge of connected healthcare.
On our newest episode of Microsoft Health Tech Today, I speak with Mason General Hospital’s chief administrative officer, Eric Moll. We explore how Mason General is proactively reaching out to patients and community members. As an early adopter of HealthVault Community Connect, Mason General is able to meet a key component of ONC’s “meaningful use” criteria – sharing care information with patients.
Find out how they did it and why their investment is paying off in better care and higher patient satisfaction. And if you think all this Web connectivity stuff is just for tech savvy young people, think again. Mason General is using technology to address the needs of people of all ages.
Here is a short preview of our show that will be featured on the Health Tech Today landing page starting Tuesday, July 12th.
