Dignity Health Key Developments

Dignity Health Improves Asthma Outcomes with Use of Digital Health Technology

Dignity Health announced results from a randomized controlled study which demonstrated that the use of digital health technology improved asthma control. The Propeller Health Asthma Platform utilizes sensors, mobile applications, and analytics to monitor short-acting ß-agonist (SABA) and inhaled corticosteroid use in real-time. The platform provides detailed information about patterns of medication use and notifications about patients with worsening asthma control. More than 495 adults and children enrolled in this study. The results found that the total amount of SABA use, and the total number of days when SABA was needed, was lower in the group using the Propeller Health Asthma Platform compared to the patients receiving routine care. Furthermore, a significantly greater increase in the Asthma Control Test was demonstrated in adults with uncontrolled asthma in the intervention group compared to adults with uncontrolled asthma under routine care.

Wanda Partners with Dignity Health to Launch OncoVerse to Deliver Advanced Oncology Decision Support

Wanda, Inc. in partnership with Dignity Health, announced the launch of the OncoVerse virtual care collaboration platform. OncoVerse is a digital health platform designed to enable the patient's care team to collaborate in real-time and allow clinicians across all disciplines to work together to determine the most effective treatment plan for cancer patients. As cancer therapies continue to advance, facilitating individualized cancer decision support is well-aligned with Wanda's mission: improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the management of chronic conditions. OncoVerse enables unprecedented information-sharing capabilities through geographically dispersed, structured collaboration of the multidisciplinary care team in real-time. Dignity Health can now expand the reach of its best available clinical decision-making support through OncoVerse to rural and remote areas, enabling patients in those locations to benefit from insights previously only shared at large medical centers. Wanda and Dignity Health intend to jointly market the Oncoverse platform available to other oncology programs across the U.S. later in 2016.

Dignity Health Partners with GoHealth Urgent Care to Bring More Accessible and Consumer Focused Urgent Care Centers to the Bay Area

GoHealthUrgent Care and Dignity Health announced a joint-venture to bring a new model of high quality, consumer-focused urgent care centers to the Bay Area. This partnership will provide patients with greater access to convenient care, where and when they need it most. As part of the joint venture's first phase, Dignity Health and GoHealth Urgent Care will open 12 urgent care centers in the Bay Area over the next 12-15 months. The centers will combine Dignity Health's clinical excellence and history of compassionate care with GoHealth's award-winning clinic design and track record of best in class patient satisfaction ratings. Dignity Health-GoHealth centers will operate seven days a week with extended evening hours and will welcome walk-in patients. Each center will also be furnished with a basic laboratory and x-ray equipment to streamline diagnosis and treatment of non-emergency medical conditions. Additionally, the seamless integration with Dignity Health's electronic medical record system will be a distinctive feature of the partnership, offering caregivers and patients a unified medical record, ensuring more consistent and informed care.
