This is Part One of the posting covering our new release. Part Two, upgrading the vaunted Quizzify2Go ER Sticker Shock Prevent Consent, will be posted Feb 28.
There are some fine navigation vendors that navigate specialist referrals, find the best venues for tests and procedures, manage postacute cases in a timely manner, help employees use their benefits, and generally walk people needing high-intensity assistance or considering elective surgery through the maze that is US healthcare.
But what about for routine low-intensity medical encounters, and also emergency visits/admissions, both of which are far more common than their counterparts above? The former can’t justify the expense of nurse intervention (and most employees won't think to phone in before routine doctor visits) while the latter are too time-sensitive. That’s where Quizzify2Go comes in. it fills the missing links in traditional care navigation.
Together with one of those vendors or another care navigator, you can create 360-degree navigation support for your employees who are using healthcare. Add the Quizzify Classic ten-question monthly quizzes, and you also reach employees who aren't using the healthcare system right now, giving you complete access to your full workplace and their dependents...all for $12/year or less in most cases.
Quizzify2Go Release 2.0 surpasses not just its predecessor, but also any release from any vendor ever at this price point: it is the first affordable and comprehensive vendored solution to achieve Minimum Acceptable Amazingness. Imagine a "Virtual GPS" for clinical encounters of all kinds, other than elective tests and procedures already covered by your care navigation.
Here is what pops up on their phones. You can see both the ER Sticker Shock Prevent Consent and the Doctor Visit PrepKits.
Each component comes with a brief explainer video. Each has a follow-up too – an ER billing literacy quiz for the Consent and FAQs for the PrepKits.
And we will look at each separately. This post covers the PrepKits, while the next will cover the Consent. (You can get a headstart on the Consent part right here.)
Doctor Visit PrepKits
Part One, this post, will cover the PrepKits, because doctor visits are ubiquitous. While even your full range of "point solutions" applies to comparatively few employees, most employees have multiple clinical encounters every year. The average is 4, plus family members averaging the same. So an employer with 1000 employees will be covering perhaps 8000 doctor, dentist and NP encounters. Right now most are uncoached, unguided and often unsatisfactory. That's because who amongst us knows exactly what to prepare, ask and expect in these situations?
Not all are covered by the PrepKits, but with 188 of the most common ones, from acne to zoster, Quizzify2Go's PrepKits far surpass the "80-20 rule" of relevance for clinical visits. This screenshot shows a small snippet of the range of visits covered. Most of these 188 topics are simply not addressed by any vendor...and yet these are where most of your employees interact with the healthcare system – frequently, quietly, without guidance, and under your radar.
Here's how you use the PrepKits. Just enter a symptom or keyword or (if you have one) diagnosis on the left, and the search will reveal one or more PrepKits. If it doesn’t, use the “Suggest New Topics...” on the right, and we will have a PrepKit turned around in a week or two, based on the Quizzify Classic Q&A material.
The "Suggest" feature also prompts suggesting questions, and a good deal of our PrepKit content is now user-generated. (There will be dramatic examples of user-generated content in our February 22 webinar.) User experiences creating user-driven content is one of the many reasons the PrepKits far surpass an internet search of expert sources. These "many reasons will be summarized at the end.
Let’s try searching on back pain, one of the most common reasons to seek medical care. This is what pops up. First and of more importance than you would expect, is "PS If you're reluctant to ask, blame us." Many people are intimidated by doctors – the forms to complete, the white coats, the diplomas, the queues to see them, and of course the bills. They need an excuse to ask the questions, and we provide it. Then, quite a number of back pain matches pop up.
