BSW Health provides emotional support for patients through a prayer wall with Amity Social

BSW Health uses Amity Social to create a prayer wall for patients dealing with health challenges. By allowing people to support each other, the company is able to generate more engagement and create a community around healing and well-being.

As the largest not-for-profit​ healthcare system in Texas and one of the largest in the United States, Baylor Scott & White Health was born from the 2013 combination of Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Healthcare. Today, Baylor Scott & White includes 52 hospitals, more than 800 patient care sites, more than 7,300 active physicians, over 49,000 employees and the Scott &​ White Health Plan.

Leveraging the power of communities to improve well-being

As trusted leaders, educators, and innovators in value-based care, BSW Health had their sights set on the opportunity to extend their programs beyond the walls and clinics of hospitals. From day one, the company knew that patients going into surgeries and procedures face major challenges, so they were searching for something that would make them feel less alone and distanced from others. The ultimate solution would, therefore, enable individuals to come together and support each other emotionally while being part of a healing community. 

Taking care of patients through a prayer wall 

Reflecting on this opportunity, BSW Health decided to partner with Amity by integrating Amity Social into their platform, both on web and mobile through react native.

By utilizing this module, the company was able to implement a feed so that users could post and send well wishes and prayers to patients and their close relatives, as well as those entering a procedure. Since the feed included messages from all other community members as well, users could interact with these posts and provide extra emotional support by sending likes, comments, and reactions.

This implementation made patients feel like they belonged in the community and weren’t going through their challenges alone. This benefit also had a spiral effect on all members of the BSW Health workforce, as doctors and staff could better care for their patients and make use of a more humanistic approach to their work.  ‍
