The future is now for Augmented Reality (AR) technology in healthcare. Unwavering commitment to enhancing the overall Patient Experience is the bedrock of Heritage Biologics (HB). We are constantly pursuing innovative solutions that can improve actual health outcomes for patients. Most recently our high-performance nursing team that specializes in home infusion therapy implemented AR venous access imaging. More simply, HB nurses can now use AR to map a patient’s veins before administration of an IV line for drug infusion. Visit: VeinViewer and AccuVein to learn more.
Heritage Biologics recently had the opportunity to support an important venue for rare disease patients called DISORDER: The Rare Disease Film Festival. This event takes place on October 2nd & 3rd in Boston and will feature over 30 films from around the world. Learning, sharing, and celebrating the rare disease patient experience is important to advancing the science for these disorders. We were fortunate to connect with Daniel DeFabio and learn about his inspiring story as a father of a rare disease patient.
I made a commitment to my sons that I would pick them up from their first day of school this week. I scheduled my return flight extra early to avoid the potential delay that is common out of Chicago airports. In fact, I gave myself a 5-hour cushion, but that wasn’t enough on this sunny day. They boarded all passengers and minutes later had us all exit the plane because it was “due for scheduled maintenance.” Scheduled maintenance? We were notified moments later that our new flight would not leave for another 6 hours. Yes, 6 hours. I refused to be stopped in my mission, and I escaped by taxi across town to O’Hare Airport in attempt to fly on a different airline.
Per Michael Porter at Harvard Business School’s Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness,
Per Heritage Biologics Rare Disease Outcomes Management (RDOM) approach,
In the past two weeks, I’ve encountered three different patient scenarios where competitive pharmacies are trying to block their patients from choosing an alternative provider. Give me a break.
It’s that time of year again when many parents like me will huddle around the baseball field to watch their kids enter the exciting world of T-ball. The fundamentals of baseball are thrown onto the field by coaches, umpires, and fans in hopes that a few might be absorbed by the unsuspecting children. It’s a significant challenge considering the butterflies, sandcastle material, and funny hats that easily captivate a 5-year-old. But it’s game time! Uniforms are on the kids, their gloves are on their hands (sometimes), a batter is at the plate, and the ball is on the T.
Health Outcomes walks into the hospital and says, “I got a major problem!” Patient Experience stands up, grabs some important data, and says, “I can help!”
