Improving the patient experience

Mercy worked hand in hand with World Wide Technology (WWT) to extend their mission beyond the confines of traditional care. For example, Mercy Virtual’s Engagement@Home program gives caregivers a vastly superior sense of how patients are doing—no matter how far away they are from their physician's office or hospital. Better care with fewer trips away from home result in happier, healthier patients.

The modern house call

Everything in an Engagement@Home kit connects patient data with Mercy Virtual’s network.

130,000

Americans die from stroke each year. Blood pressure monitors can detect signs early on.2

58.1 MIN

is the average U.S. emergency room wait. An iPad allows for quick triage 24/7.3

90%

is the minimum safe oxygen saturation level. A pulse oximeter alerts doctors to dangerous drops.4

2-3 LBS

in sudden weight gain suggests fluid retention. The scale can uncover daily fluctuations.5

Within a year of introducing the Virtual Care Center, Mercy Virtual started seeing results:

50%

reduction in preventable readmissions for Engagement@Home patients.

35%

fewer days spent in the hospital with virtual care.

60%

fewer septic shock deaths occurred in patients being treated remotely.
