Boston, Aug. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UbiCare, a health technology company that helps hospitals activate, engage and educate patients throughout a care episode, congratulates our 12 hospital clients who made the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals list for 2018–’19.

These hospitals use UbiCare’s SmarteXp™ technology to activate patients, lower care costs and improve patient outcomes.

“It makes sense that hospitals using innovative patient engagement solutions are also being honored as ‘Best Hospitals,’” says UbiCare Executive Vice President Debra Zalvan. “Healthcare leaders today are focusing on programs that drive value enterprise-wide, and patient activation technology is one of the ways that hospitals are doing this.”

U.S. News evaluated more than 5,000 hospitals and awarded winners in a variety of categories. The 12 awardees working with UbiCare break down as follows:

  • 3 made the Honor Roll – a category reserved for the top 20 overall hospitals nationwide.
  • 7 were honored as Best Children’s Hospitals, and these hospitals all work with UbiCare in the obstetrics, maternal health, pediatrics and autism service lines.
  • 2 were honored as Best Hospitals in Orthopedics, and these hospitals use UbiCare’s solution for total knee and hip replacement. 

“The best hospitals recognize that to impact clinical outcomes, you need to reach patients outside the hospital walls,” adds Zalvan. “Each of the hospitals honored is doing just that. The U.S. News’ honor reinforces that educating and engaging patients remotely over an extended period of time contributes to hospital success.”
