Eebu Tracking and Patient Engagement
Eebu's software ensures patients comply with prescribed follow-up care. Between missed appointments, readmissions, and legal liability, patient follow-up is over a $150B problem. Eebu leverages automated tracking for healthcare providers to make sure nobody can be forgotten along with patient engagement to encourage patients to comply. Instead of appointment reminders, Eebu automatically reminds patients of appointments they need and educates them on why the follow-up is important.
Category of Innovation
Digital Health - A digital health solution is a technology-based solution whose user is caring for or providing care for themselves (think of a personal app) or another individual (such as a doctor using a tool to help their patient)
Intended End User
Patient - Individuals who receive health care
Provider - Individuals or organizations responsible for providing care to patients (e.g. doctors, nurses, hospital/clinic administrators, etc.)
Impactful Innovation Stage (Click Here for Details)
Impact
Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
Patients frequently don't follow-up as prescribed by their doctors. This can lead to lost revenue for hospitals for the required care and poorer outcomes for patients. Additional costs of care can occur due to hospital readmissions when patients experience preventable complications. In addition, patients often leave temporary medical devices and implants in their bodies too long, as is the case with about 12% of ureteral stents and over 70% of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters. This can result in higher costs of care, poorer outcomes, and legal liability for the doctor. Simply the fear that patients will have poor compliance can lead to doctors selecting more aggressive treatments as is the case when doctors decide that low risk prostate cancer patients cannot be trusted to follow their active surveillance.
Level of adoption (i.e. list of customers/users, testimonials, etc.), if applicable
Our solution is at:
- Michigan Medicine Interventional Radiology
- Michigan Medicine Endourology
- University of Alabama Medicine Endourology

"Eebu [is] more reliable than manual schedule review. IVC filters were placed at the time of procedures scheduled as IR Inferior Vena Cava Venograms, IR Angiogram Pulmonary, IR Bronchial Artery embolization, IR Angiogram Lower Extremity. These filter placements would have been overlooked by manual review of procedures scheduled without a review of procedure note."

"Eebu [is] more reliable than manual schedule review for bedside placements. There were four bedside filter placements. None were scheduled. All would have been lost to follow up."
Impact (i.e. measurable outcomes), if applicable
1. Tracking patients automatically that require follow-up.
2. Categorizing patients based on natural language processing of the operative notes.
3. Discovering patients with implants that were not found by nursing staff.
