A few months ago, I flew out to Chicago to shoot a Patient Experience Video, working with the folks at Outcome Health to launch their re-brand and showcase the latest advancements in their point-of-care technologies. I blogged about the company (then called ContextMedia) awhile back, when I encountered one of their handy exam room tablet at a doctor's visit. You can read and see pics of the technology I blogged about here.I posted a few shots from the production once it wrapped in November - here and here. I had a great time working with the Outcome Health team during the process. They were relaxed, super accommodating, and were genuinely interested in hearing how and why a patient's positive experience in a doctor's office can make a difference in their overall healthcare. Their name "Outcome Health" really says it all.
Want to check out my brief moments in the spotlight?
Click here to hear what I had to say about the exam room tablet on their Product landing page. Just click "See Our Impact" once you're there.
While I didn't get a chance to work alongside the other patient or doctors directly (only one starred dressing room, so we had to take turns :), the videos work really well together. They show what an impact these exam and consultation room technologies can have. The doctor-patient relationship will be changed forever!
In addition to their Digital Wallboard which you see me with here (my favorite!), Outcome Health also developed an infusion room tablet, specifically for folks on treatments like lupus patients' beloved Benlysta. They even have a dedicated space within their Chicago office (which is one of the best work spaces ever) where they've recreated realistic point of care scenarios in which their technologies would be used, one of which is complete with infusion chair.
As for the view from their office, I think I know where they get their inspiration:
And somewhere to the left or right of me is the In-house Coffee Bar. Clearly, Outcome Health has figured out how to keep its employees motivated, inspired, and ready to innovate. It really shows when you're touring the office...and is evident when you look at the amazing strides they've made in making the doctor's office a more engaging, educational space for patients and doctors alike.
