Welcome to Shared Decision Making

Hospital patients and family members want shared decision making, they need real-time information combined with clinical care team communication.  

By listening, Somml Health created a new approach – a collaboration platform connecting patients, family and clinical care teams for shared decision making and effective long term care management

Times are changing and so are the conversations
Hospital patients want family members to join the conversation
Hospital patients want access to real-time information
