Hello Health the web-based Patient Management Platform designed for independent primary care physicians announced the addition of 13 new practices to its growing client roster. Since January of this year, Hello Health has signed 13 practices in ten states, comprising a total of 20,000 potential patients with access to the Platform.
Hello Health makes it possible for independent primary care practitioners to engage with their patients via less traditional methods of communication (i.e. email, instant messaging, and video chats) while also providing patients secure and straightforward access to medical records. This patient benefit also becomes a new revenue stream for physicians as it is supported by a nominal patient-paid subscription fee.
13 New Practices Select Revenue-Generating EMR Solution for Thousands of Patients
NEW YORK CITY (March 27, 2012) – Hello Health® today announced that it has signed 13 new practices across ten states to the Hello Health Patient Management Platform which increases the number of patients who can subscribe to the Platform by more than 20,000 patients. Hello Health helps doctors generate an independent revenue stream, at no cost to the practice, while making the transition from paper to electronic medical records.
Hello Health’s Patient Management Platform makes it possible for independent primary care practitioners to engage with their patients via email and web chats while also providing patients with ready access to medical records. This patient benefit also becomes a new revenue stream as it is supported by a nominal patient-paid fee.
“Incorporating an EMR into my practice makes good clinical sense and is necessary to remain efficient in the long term,” said Joel L. Fine, M.D., of Fine & Associates in Snellville, Georgia. “The Hello Health business model not only provides the EMR-based technology platform we need, but this system also makes it possible for us to generate revenue without any upfront implementation fees. This really is the best of both worlds as this will allow for us to provide better access for patients and improve our clinical workflow.”
Traditionally, a large percentage of physician/patient interactions go unpaid with the largest culprit being unscheduled inbound calls to physicians requesting refills or access to medical documents. The Hello Health Platform solves this problem by providing patients with secure access to medical records, with the added benefits of scheduling appointments, renewing prescriptions, conducting video visits, and requesting lab and test results all within one streamlined, secure, and HIPAA-compliant Patient Management Platform.
“As physicians look to evolve their practices from traditional ‘doctors offices’ into more patient-centric practices, the need for electronic medical records, along with a secure means of communicating with patients, has become increasingly apparent,” said Nathanial Findlay, founder and chief executive officer of Myca® Health, parent company of Hello Health. “With Hello Health, patients receive 24/7 access to their medical information, while doctors benefit from a streamlined workflow so more time can be spent providing care to patients.”
