Salt Lake City, Utah – July 21, 2022, – Health Catalyst, Inc. (“Health Catalyst,” Nasdaq: HCAT), a leading provider of data and analytics technology and services to healthcare organizations, today announced a partnership with MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach (“MemorialCare”), a leading, innovative nonprofit health system in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. MemorialCare stands for innovation in patient care and its children’s hospital is the only hospital in the region to offer Twistle by Health Catalyst’s (“Twistle”) communication capability to its pediatric cardiology patients.
Pediatric cardiology care is challenging and complex. With Twistle’s patient communication technology, MemorialCare will be better able to support the unique needs of some of the hospital’s most fragile patients and their caregivers. MemorialCare will have the ability to remotely monitor patients’ progress, automate and optimize patient communication, and engage in two-way communication with the patient and caregivers.
”It is imperative that we create better and easier communication with our patients and their families,” said Saar Danon, M.D., Medical Director, Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Cardiac Catheterization, Children’s Heart Institute, MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s. “This will allow us to remotely monitor our most complex and high-risk patients following discharge from the hospital and provide an easy way for families to communicate with their providers with any questions or concerns. This system is the future of medicine and will be crucial in improving the care to our patients and improve outcomes.”
MemorialCare Miller is a not-for-profit, pediatric teaching hospital that treats more than 8,000 children each year and has become a regional pediatric destination for more than 84,000 children, who need specialized care in outpatient specialty and satellite centers. More than 750 pediatric specialists and sub-specialists, as well as nearly 100 OB/GYNs, including 10 high-risk pregnancy specialists, ensure that the highest quality, compassionate care is given to each patient and their family.
