    • 1. Patient Digital Design & Services: The Next Generation of Quality Susan Woods, MD, MPH Oregon Health & Science University Portland VA Medical Center
    • 2. Points • Consumer rise of digital tools • PHRs = consumer meaningful use • Portal use driven by value, access • Patient & healthcare team benefit • Participatory care is PHR 2.0
    • 3. What do people want?  Access  Great care  Avoid costs 3
    • 4. Information & Services Transforming

    • 13. Observations on Secure Email • Drives team-based care • Great for patients • Great for front-line staff • Know more between visits • Better in-person visits • Respectful of time • Rare inappropriate use (they call)

    • 16. Patient-Facing Digital Services - Impact Evidence Likely More accurate information Better experience More knowledge of problems Greater self-care More prepared for visits More efficient in-person visits Greater trust in clinicians Improved quality measures Improved outcomes More preventive services Less no-shows Need to mitigate digital divide Patients Improved adherence Better caregiver knowledge/skills Fewer tests Better care coordination Increased use of digital services Healthcare Teams: Shifting work Need different communication Care Delivery: More visits for some Less visits for some
    • 17. Shenkin B, Warner D. New England Journal Medicine 1973 A 40-year old idea…. • Enhance patient autonomy • Improve patient-physician relationship • Serve as educational tool
    • 18. 23 J Med Internet Res 2013;15(3):e65
    • 19. Communication “I can go in and ask more intelligent questions and we don‟t have to spend as much time with them explaining everything to me.” “I could see my results. I could see what was going on and didn‟t get stressed out waiting to hear back from somebody who might never call.”
    • 20. Knowledge Doctors aren‟t real gabby and never tell you everything. Even if you ask questions, they‟ll sort of slide around them. They don‟t have time. I found stuff out that I was just truly amazed at about myself. “You could pop over to Google….and see what it‟s saying instead of sitting there sweating it out.”
    • 21. Self-Care “Made me feel more responsible for myself, like there‟s no excuses. You know, it‟s right there, you know. You can‟t use „the doctor didn‟t tell you‟.” “You could pop over to Google or the library, and see what it‟s saying instead of sitting there sweating it out trying to figure out what it is.”
    • 22. Patient Participation in Care Quality “I had an ultrasound on my liver and saw the results. It said, „Re-do in 6 months‟. Six months came and nothing happened. So I called the doctor. He says, „Yeah, they did say that‟. So, if I hadn‟t reminded him, I wouldn‟t have got it.”
    • 23. “I‟d like to know, what you think and what you know, and what you‟re predicting. Rather than just write it in there, tell me and then write it.” Patient Participation in Care Quality
