As a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, several healthcare systems have asked how they can use Frontive Health to better support these patients while also reducing the strain on overwhelmed healthcare resources.

The simple answer: we provide an easy-to-use, automated platform to make it easier for patients to “stay on task” with respect to protocols and instructions. This relieves scarce clinical resources for more urgent, hands-on activities.

More specifically …

For patients with COVID-19 who do not require hospitalization, Frontive Health can:

  • Provide patients with up-to-date answers on what to do, what to avoid, and what are signs / symptoms of deterioration or complications
  • Provide detailed instructions and support with respect to all prescription medications included in the patient’s record PLUS major OTC products
  • Give physicians confidence to avoid admitting certain patients, knowing that patients have access to current information and self-service support through the Alexa app’s intuitive voice interface
  • Allow providers to easily update answers to any FAQs and instructions to reflect new information and learnings about COVID-19

For patients with COVID-19 who do require hospitalization, Frontive Health can:

  • Provide consistent discharge instructions using our “Frontive Health Briefing” daily project plan, focusing on key actions and items to avoid
  • Provide up-to-date answers to key FAQs, reducing inbound calls to clinical staff while also reducing readmissions and suboptimal outcomes
  • Provide detailed instructions and support with respect to all prescription medications included in the patient’s record PLUS major OTC products
  • Give physicians confidence to reduce LOS, freeing up valuable beds for patients needing to be admitted
  • Allow providers to easily update answers to any FAQs and instructions to reflect new information and learnings about COVID-19

For non-COVID-19 patients (such as CHF patients), Frontive Health can:

  • Provide easy-to-use, self-service support to keep these patients out of the hospital / ER during the crisis
  • Provide up-to-date answers to key FAQs and instructions, freeing up clinical staff for COVID-19 cases
  • Provide detailed instructions and support with respect to all prescription medications included in the patient’s record PLUS major OTC products
  • Give physicians confidence to reduce LOS, freeing up valuable beds for patients needing to be admitted
  • Improve adherence in support of important risk-based contracts

What’s needed to use Frontive Health?

  • Patients – a smartphone + the Amazon Alexa app; wifi access improves the user experience, but it is NOT necessary
  • Providers – content in the form of protocol instructions and simple answers to FAQs, i.e., what you normally provide patients
