Sarasota Orthopedic Associates Deploys IDS Patient Survey Technology

Sarasota Orthopedic Associates (SOA) has implemented a data gathering and analytics tool, as part of its quality initiative designed to improve knowledge of patient expectations and monitoring of SOA’s service and care.

The technology, developed by IDS, a pioneer in healthcare IT, offers an all-in-one survey process for data collection, data compilation and real-time reporting. The patient satisfaction survey is the latest healthcare application developed by IDS and joins the company’s suite of AbbaDox clinical reporting and workflow solutions in the cloud.

Although SOA did gather patient feedback previously, the manual process was “slow, labor-intensive and not technically sound,” said CEO Doug Badertscher. “This really is a game changer. It allows us to identify processes that may not meet customer expectations. It also helps us understand what factors patients find important when defining quality in care and rating their overall experience.”

Over 400 patients completed the questionnaire in the first month with the goal of obtaining at least 5,000 during the course of the year. That will provide a solid data pool for measurement and meaningful comparison. Feedback obtained in the first 30 days offered valuable insight into practice operations and allowed management to identify areas for improvement or procedural change, such as providing more detail on the billing statement about treatment delivered.

Badertscher uses the analytical reports to help physicians and staff recognize how their actions affect customer satisfaction. Over time, an outstanding score card can serve as a visiting card when marketing to referring centers. Plus, patients are more likely to refer their friends and family members if they have a positive experience.

“It’s important we develop applications that help providers better communicate and connect with their patients and ease the transition to a quality of care focus,” said IDS CEO Yaniv Dagan. “From a well-designed survey to automating alerts for negative feedback, we’re delighted to see what a strong impact actionable data has on aligning SOA’s objectives with patient needs,” he said.

SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. DatacenterDynamics is a brand of DCD Group, a global B2B media and publishing company that develops products to help senior professionals in the world's most ICT dependent organizations make risk-based infrastructure and capacity decisions.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
