"Coastal Medical is excited to collaborate with PatientWisdom, Inc. to implement the PatientWisdom solution for patients of all ages," explains Edward McGookin, MD, MHCDS, FAAP, Chief Medical Officer. "Patient experience and patient engagement are at the core of Coastal Medical's mission of delivering high-quality, patient-centered care. With PatientWisdom, we can do an even better job of caring for our patients by helping providers learn more about what is most important to them and their families."

Before a visit, patients or family members complete templated stories to securely share information about themselves or their children, with a focus on what matters to them as people. PatientWisdom then distills the information into an at-a-glance inSIGHT summary that helps care teams better understand goals, challenges, and preferences.

"Coastal Medical has been an ideal innovation partner, and we are grateful to collaborate on this first-ever pediatric application of PatientWisdom," said Dr. Gregory Makoul, Founder and CEO of PatientWisdom, Inc. "The clinical team is highly engaged in incorporating PatientWisdom into their workflow to transform the experience and delivery of care for their patients and families."

Coastal Medical joins other innovative health organizations using PatientWisdom, including Allina Health, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, OSF HealthCare, and Yale New Haven Health.
