Press Release: Spring Medical Systems selects IngagePatient
Spring Medical Systems, a Leading Provider of EHR Software, Selects IngagePatient, the Premier Patient Engagement Platform
Adds Meaningful Use 2 Certification Features and Product Differentiation
IngagePatient, the premier mobile patient engagement platform, is integrating its comprehensive solutions platform with Spring Medical Systems, a leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) software provider offering SpringCharts. IngagePatient will extend SpringCharts’ current software offering beyond the doctor’s office directly into the hands of patients. The relationship will also provide Spring Medical with broader coverage for Meaningful Use Stage 2 criteria, including those related specifically to patient engagement.
"We have a tremendous relationship with Spring Medical and are excited about their enthusiasm in launching our combined fully integrated solution," stated Justin Neece, Chief Operations Officer, IngagePatient. "The combination of SpringCharts and IngagePatient creates a differentiated service that extends the reach of physicians beyond the doctor’s office through mobile technology."
The partnership is in implementation mode and is in the process of a national rollout.
IngagePatient’s Mobile Health solution allows providers to interact with patients outside of the clinic. Using a tablet or smart phone, including both iOS and Android, patients can access a virtual physician’s office to make appointments, refill prescriptions, pay their bill and receive helpful reminders regarding appointments, referrals and care plan requirements. These features help support care plan compliance and improve patient satisfaction. In addition, staff and clinicians will benefit from the operational efficiencies of the new platform, which helps to attract new patients, retaining existing patients and reduce no-show rates.
"Rather than just meet the basics of meaningful use, we were looking to offer patients a more robust patient engagement solution with features that they access in other areas of their lives," stated Mark Benvegnu, CEO, Spring Medical Systems. "Our practices have asked us for this functionality and are very excited about the rollout."
