Predictive Patient Management Platform Expands Real-Time Mobile Capabilities
August 15, 2018 (San Francisco, CA) — Wanda is pleased to announce the release of its new digital health application Wanda CareLink™. The multi-platform application greatly expands the mobility of the Wanda Patient Management solution to be used on virtually any internet-enabled device including iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. The “bring-your-own-device” approach expands the ability for patients, doctors, and clinicians to improve care plan adherence producing better clinical and financial outcomes.
The Wanda platform empowers doctors and clinicians with the ability to know when patients will have adverse events before they happen, predicting 90% of rehospitalizations and emergency department visits seven days before they occur. The embedded predictive algorithms identify high-risk patients, alerting doctors and clinicians to the root-causes triggering the adverse events. These insights help clinical teams to assess care plans and proactively manage virtual interventions, which improve patient care plan adherence and resolve the adverse event before it happens.
“Wanda is proving to be a great solution for supporting preventative patient engagement with 74% of patients staying adherent to their care plan,” stated William Bassett, Chief Commercial Officer at Wanda. “As high-risk patients are identified, Wanda facilitates better decision making, empowering doctors and clinicians with the real-time insight that will keep patients from preventable emergent situations.”
The Wanda application was created from twelve years of research at UCLA, in a collaborative research project including the Medical, Nursing and Engineering Schools. After eight clinical trials yielding nine patents, the machine learning clinical algorithms have shown to predict 90% of adverse events, rehospitalizations and ED visits, seven days before the event will occur. Wanda warns of the pending adverse event detailing the risk triggers for each patient prompting the need for intervention and then facilitates clinical case management.
“Providers and payers can more easily identify and eliminate issues that have made population health and risk-based contracting a challenge,” said Ahsan Samiee, Chief Technology Officer at Wanda. “The embedded data science in Wanda can now be used across a range of mobile tools to expand the efficiency of real-time patient care.”
