Improve Patient Satisfaction 

Offering a wide array of capabilities, Medix connects and empowers patients during their healthcare journey. Connectivity starts by opening the Medix | Journi application on a personal mobile device which provides access to pre-registration checklists and connection to care teams. Documentation can be exchanged, educational content and wayfinding information viewed. Following hospital registration patients can utilise managed medical devices to access Medix | Link which delivers television, movies, radio, Internet, e-mail, games health information and services.

Medix Link used for Clinical connectivity

Healthcare organizations can capture patient feedback, on any topic, at any time during the patient journey. This feedback can be used to improve the delivery of care and further boost patient satisfaction scores and support CQUIN (commissioning for Quality and Innovation) targets which also have a direct impact on hospital reimbursements.

“We see patients actively engaged and empowered throughout their care journey providing a better care experience, knowledge and overall satisfaction, which positively influences their clinical outcomes,” adds Otto. “From this perspective, Medix directly impacts patient satisfaction scores, such as HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems), which are becoming more important than ever.”

Providing healthcare workers with access to a wide range of applications directly at the bedside, Medix helps improve clinical workflow and productivity. The ability to instantly access a patient’s electronic medical records (EMR) and the hospital information system (HIS) – while safeguarding patient privacy – results in improved efficiencies and better decision-making at the bedside.
