The patient check-in process needs to be streamlined. DrChrono Inc., a platform operator for medical practices, has announced a new partnership with Ricoh to automatically scan patient IDs and medical documentation right into the electronic health record (EHR), as well as Explanation of Benefits (EOB) into the practice management system (PMS).
OptimizeRx Corp. has established a new partnership that expands its digital communication platform by more than 300 health systems and 75,000 healthcare providers that utilize Electronic Health Records (EHRs) Epic and Cerner. Prescribers within these health systems will now have instant access to real-time patient savings information through OptimizeRx’s cloud-based platform as they are evaluating and prescribing treatments. In addition to Epic and Cerner, the OptimizeRx platform also integrates with Allscripts, NextGen, New Crop, and Amazing Charts, reaching more than 675,000 prescribers directly within their existing digital workflows.
Confidence in patient engagement technology's (PETs) potential remains high as health systems continue to invest in a more digital health care experience - focusing on connecting with, communicating with, and monitoring patients outside the walls of the health system. While it's encouraging to see health systems being proactive by embracing the growing demand by consumers for a more digital health care experience, successful patient/health system adoption is much more than investing in and implementing new technology.
Successful adopters of PET have started with buy-in at the senior leadership level, redesigning the organizational strategy to become more consumer/patient-obsessed.
