We just found out this past week that UW Medicine is one of 39 health care collaborative networks selected to participate in the CMS Transforming Clinical Practices initiative! The mPOWEr team is thrilled to be a part of this award and to contribute to this unprecedented coordinated effort to improve the quality of health care delivery.
What does this mean for mPOWEr? Thanks to this award, we will have the funds to expand the reach of our platform and continue to focus on enhancing the communication between patients and their surgical providers in the post-discharge period about their surgical wounds. Our goal is to improve the support and information exchange for patients in this most vulnerable time, and to tailor “just right” care for surgical patients as they need it with an easy to use mHealth app. Exciting times for mPOWEr, as we begin our first clinical implementation in the UWMC Center for Reconstructive Surgery this month, and look to rolling out to other clinics in UW Medicine later this year!
