SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, announced today that its research collaborative, the Experience Innovation Network, is increasing awareness for new models of care. On a mission to accelerate human-centered approaches to healthcare delivery, the Experience Innovation Network is co-hosting a webinar with Stanford’s Clinical Excellence Research Center (CERC) and exploring a New Model of Care to Serve Complex Patients. This online discussion, moderated by Liz Boehm, research director at the Experience Innovation Network, will take place May 9, from 1-2 p.m. ET.
“Patients living at the confluence of significant physical illness, mental illness, and poverty need more than just good medicine to meet their needs. They need care that meets their human and health needs in a coordinated and caring fashion,” Boehm said.
Research fellows at CERC isolated three widely underutilized methods to serve these patients cost-effectively. In this webinar, Stanford Professor and CERC Director Arnie Milstein will lead the discussion of these three methods, presented by Stanford research fellows Chuan-Mei Lee, MA, MD, Danielle Rochlin, MD, and Claudia Scheuter, MD.
“In most states, healthcare systems lose money and clinicians sense futility in caring for high-need, high-cost patients that cycle through hospital EDs and often the criminal justice system. Dedicating almost a year to immersion in the problem and diverse solutions, these three fellows helped me see three unharvested healthcare system opportunities to do much better with less,” Dr. Milstein said.
Stanford’s CERC and Vocera’s Experience Innovation Network are working to advance new models for higher value care that improve the lives of patients, families and care teams. To register for this complimentary webinar, click here.
