What is Revon and what does it do?
Revon is a physician-centric, health data capture system that helps physicians efficiently manage patients and helps patients take better care of themselves. Revon allows you to:
- Quickly assign a health data capture plan to your patients.
- Monitor your patient’s health in between scheduled visits.
- Analyze the health of each individual patient.
Revon can be freely accessed through the Revon website (https://app.revonsystems.com)
Revon has several main features:
- Patient State Object (PSO) – a backend module that models the patient holistically within the Revon application. The patient’s profile picture will be outlined with a colored circle. The color of the circle shows current estimated patient health state. This circle can acquire 3 colors: Green (good), Yellow (caution), or Red (bad).
- Patient Outcome Graph - the graphic representations of patient captured outcomes, physician captured outcomes, physician visits, SST activations, and hospitalizations over time.
- Smart Symptom Trackers (SSTs) – a triage service that is activated if Revon detects an abnormal body measurement that the patient has entered or if the patient presses the “Am I OK?” button in the patient app. The SST asks the patient a series of questions to determine whether the patient is experiencing a disease exacerbation or not. There are four outcomes from the SST: 1) “You don’t need medical help right now based on what you’ve told us. If you feel worse, or if you still think you need medical help, please call your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room” 2) “Call your specialist in 24 hours if no improvement” 3) “Call your specialist today” or 4) “Call 911 and notify your doctor”
- Education Modules – these are reading materials that are designed to teach patients about their disease and how to manage it better. Each medical condition has one or more disease focused educational modules associated with it; for example the Moderate Persistent Asthma medical condition includes the “Asthma in Adults” and “Identifying and Controlling Asthma Triggers” educational modules.
What is the patient outcome graph?
This chart displays multiple outcome data series of the patient in a single time series chart. The purpose of the chart is to allow the physician to make a quick assessment of how the patient’s health has changed over time. Revon captures patient health data continuously. The data is reported both by patients and physicians and becomes part of the patient data file. This data is very valuable in evaluating patient health status, trends and risks and also for research and analysis. There are several important components of the outcome graph:
- Health score – this is a risk score computed by Revon to reflect the overall health of the patient. By examining whether the health score has increased or decreased over time, you can determine whether the patient’s health has improved or deteriorated since their last appointment.
- Compliance score – this is a score computed by Revon which reflects the patient’s adherence to the outcome schedule
- Physician captured outcomes – the chart displays physician reported outcomes on the left axis. The physician is responsible for updating the necessary outcomes at each visit. The physician diagnosed medical condition determines the physician-captured outcomes.
- Patient captured outcomes – the chart displays patient captured outcomes on the right axis. The patient is responsible for updating the necessary outcomes between office visits. The physician diagnosed medical condition determines which outcomes the patient is responsible for tracking.
- Events –include SST activations, physician meetings, and hospitalizations. SST activations and physician meetings will be represented by a vertical line on the chart. Hospitalizations will be represented on the chart by a thick red vertical line with a bed icon above. Hovering over the icon/vertical line will bring up a small popup window giving details about the event.
The outcome graph is designed to give the physician insight into the progression of the patient’s disease between visits. The physician is able to modify how he or she views the chart using the legend at the bottom allowing the identification of areas within the patient’s health management that need to be addressed.
