How Rhinogram is Revolutionizing Healthcare Costs

Updated: Jan 30



In our previous blog, we reviewed the concept of the Quadruple Aim in healthcare and KLAS. Today, we'll take a closer look at one of the components of the Quadruple Aim, "Reducing Costs" and review Rhinogram, a Digital Communication & Virtual Care solution, was awarded the 5th place in the KLAS Top 20 Emerging Solutions, showcasing its dedication to cost-efficient care.


The Imperative of Cost Reduction in Healthcare

Reducing the cost of care is a critical element of the Quadruple Aim. The ever-increasing healthcare expenses are a burden on both patients and providers. It's essential to find innovative solutions that will work with your facility to improve operational efficiency, reduce the risk of burnout, mitigate the impact of staffing shortages on patient care delivery, improve the quality of care, and ultimately decrease the associated costs.


Rhinogram: Pioneering Cost-Effective Care

Rhinogram's recognition as the 5th place winner in KLAS Top 20 Emerging Solutions underscores its commitment to cost efficiency. But how does Rhinogram achieve this?

  • Telehealth Solutions: Rhinogram provides a robust HIPAA-compliant telehealth tool that enables healthcare providers to reach patients remotely, reducing the need for in-person visits. Offering hybridized care saves time for patients and providers and reduces overhead costs associated with physical infrastructure. Providers can increase their practice's capacity and revenue without the need for additional physical space. Historically, accessing patients in far-reaching or remote areas with virtual care was not an option due to a lack of broadband/WIFI. This impacts approximately 30% of all patients. Thankfully, the Rhinogram Telehealth feature accommodates this by utilizing cell service or broadband/WIFI. Telehealth solutions can benefit your facility in ways that are nonclinical as well. Many administrative tasks can be virtually guided with the patient pre-visit, saving time when they arrive in the office, clarifications of instructions, or post-visit check-ins are a few examples. Having a simple-to-use, on-demand telehealth /virtual care solution at your fingertips allows for both clinical and administrative use cases. Further enhancing the impact telehealth/virtual care can have on reducing the cost of care. 

  • Streamlined Communication: Effective communication is key to cost reduction. Inefficient communication and administrative burdens ultimately lead to revenue reduction. Rhinogram empowers healthcare providers to focus more on patient care and less on administrative overhead by providing unique messaging capabilities and automation tools that facilitate seamless interactions between patients and providers, avoiding costly delays and inefficiencies. Patients quickly become loyal to a healthcare facility that recognizes the value of their time and communicates the way they prefer to, via messaging. Patients prefer not to waste time waiting on hold or playing "phone tag" to schedule an appointment. Utilizing artificial intelligence to smart route messages and other key automation, Rhinogram will streamline your healthcare facility communications before, during, and after your patients' journey with you.

  • Enhanced & Customized Workflow: Rhinogram's belief in building robust features and functionality yet allowing the healthcare facility to determine "how" they want their business to run, is a core Rhinogram value. Every healthcare facility's workflow is unique. Rhinogram believes the vendor's job is to build the functionality that is needed to be more operationally efficient and reduce the risk of burnout, but not require a box for them to stand in to use it. Integration with existing EHR/PMS systems, leveraging artificial intelligence to smart route messages, automation, workflow optimization, KPI, and analytics, empowers healthcare providers to focus more on patient care and less on administrative overhead. 

  • Patient Engagement: At Rhinogram, our ethos revolves around enhancing patient-provider interactions, driven by the understanding that effective communication is at the core of successful healthcare facilities. How does a healthcare facility accomplish this when your patient population can be diverse in age, socio-economic status, technology comfort, language spoken, etc? The answer is, by keeping it relevant. Empower both patients and healthcare facilities with an easy way to stay engaged ultimately transforming the landscape of healthcare communication. Downloading apps is complicated and annoying for patients, and remembering passwords adds another challenge that patients do not want. Rhinogram sends a direct SMS/MMS message same as communicating with friends and family. When the patient wants to communicate with the practice, they simply message the practice phone number. It doesn't get more simple than that. Facilitating simple and seamless HIPAA compliant communication with Rhinogram can help prevent costly readmissions and reduce complications.


The Impact on Quadruple Aim

Rhinogram's emphasis on cost-effective care directly aligns with the Quadruple Aim. By reducing costs, they make healthcare more affordable and accessible for patients, contributing to a positive patient experience. Additionally, healthcare providers benefit from streamlined processes and reduced administrative work, enhancing their well-being.
