iPatientCare Positions First-of-its-kind Wellness Focused Patient Engagement Platform
iPatientCare, Inc., a pioneer in mHealth and cloud-based ambulatory EHR and integrated practice management solutions, announced today broadening of its commitment to serve patients through its innovative Patient Engagement Suite founded on the concepts of Wellness and Chronic Care Management.
‘The greatest wealth is health’. We all have heard this. However, the quote from Josh Billings is more appropriate in recent time that “Health is like money. We never have a true idea of its value until we lose it.” US healthcare reforms, therefore, ride high on engaging patients on issues that matter the most in managing their own health.
“Fifty-five percent of physicians do not plan to attest for Meaningful Use Stage 2 in 2015, according to a survey of nearly 2,000 physicians by Medical Practice Insider in partnership with SERMO. Respondents stated the MU requirements for patient engagement are extremely difficult to achieve due to the cumbersome user experience of patient portals and the large number of older patients. We knew, we had to address this barrier for our iPatientCare users, and hence, this innovative platform to engage patients.”, said Kedar Mehta, CTO, iPatientCare.
iPatientCare, known for its innovative products and ease-of-use, perceived the challenges of engaging patients much ahead, and that has been helping Eligible Providers in attesting for the MU reporting.
Susan Fili, RN and Officer Manager, Yuil Medical Center, has been always ahead of the pack that claimed MU and PQRS incentives. She commented enthusiastically, “I love iPatientCare simply because they put themselves in our shoes and approach the bottlenecks we experience. It started with the ease of documentation in 2003. Then, numerous interfaces with third-party systems and medical equipments. Now, it is all about getting patients to talk back to us, and iPatientCare’s mHealth and Web based tools integrated with telephony have given us what we needed at the right time!”
iPatientCare plans unveiling some of its innovations at the upcoming HIMSS 2015 at Chicago. “Seeing is believing. Do visit us at booth 2491.”, said Nehal Ramani, Marketing & Sales Manager, iPatientCare.
