This article refers to the people that respond with condition-specific data to CareSignal text messages or phone calls as 'patients'. Your team may call them, members, consumers, customers, people, etc.
- 'Interventions' are now known as 'Programs'
- Our programs collect data from patients and trigger alerts that can inform the interventions that you or your team make
- The Epx- prefix will be going away
- e.g.) EpxDiabetes is now Diabetes
- Unengaged patients will now be known as Less-Engaged patients to better encompass people who fall into that category
- Reporting will be updated to reflect this change
How Epharmix and CareSignal Dashboards Work
Both dashboards are web platform are comprised of three, major parts:
- The UI/UX or the website you see and interact with when you view patient data, resolve alerts, update prescriptions, etc.
- The web technology or the technology that powers the website, making it possible to click around the site and perform those actions
- The data store or the database that houses your user credentials, custom account settings, or program (fka intervention) data that comes from your actions or your patients' actions
To enable the transition from Epharmix.com to CareSignal.health, we significantly improved the web technology for the platform. But we kept the UI/UX very similar to what you are used to and the data store is the same.
That boils down to:
- Improved, yet familiar dashboard
- New, faster web technology
- Same, exact data from Epharmix.com powers CareSignal.health
That means you'll have access to the same user login and access to the same Event Notes, Provider Contacts, Patient Detail data, Account Presets, Account Thresholds, and more. You really don't have to do anything to transition to the new dashboard except login at https://app.caresignal.health.
A Demo of the new, CareSignal Dashboard
The video below will demonstrate the similarities (and few differences) between the two dashboards.
Here are the cliff notes:
- The dashboards are very similar visually
- The CareSignal dashboard loads faster
- You can now delete Patient Views
- There are fewer clicks with CareSignal, the site now uses less-disruptive 'Toast' notifications
- Snooze, Resolve, Patient Detail workflows are the same
- To better accommodate colorblind and low-vision users, the red, yellow, and green status circles are now icons that say, H, M, or L. Statuses are now as follows:
- Red is High-Risk
- Yellow is Medium-Risk
- Green is Low-Risk
- Admins can update certain terms on the site: Patient, MRN, and Provider
Pages In-Progress or Going Away Soon
Based off of our analytics and current partner use-cases there are some items that are either In-Progress or Going Away Soon. If you are concerned about these pages going away because they are part of your daily workflow, pleases let firstname.lastname@example.org know.
Many of these items will be completed soon. You may not even encounter any of these items. If you encounter an in-progress page at CareSignal.health, it will a button that will send you to the exact, right Epharmix.com page. There you can make updates. Since both sites share the same data, any change you make to Epharmix.com will be reflected on CareSignal.health and vice versa.
This list is up-to-date as of 2/28.
