New partnership between ITelagen® and PhoneTree® provides bi-directional integration of patient reminders for clients utilizing a variety of EHR platforms.
Jersey City, NJ – February 18, 2016 – ITelagen, a technology support and services provider specializing in the healthcare industry, has chosen PhoneTree’s HealthWave Connect®, a cloud-based, automated messaging solution, as the preferred patient reminder solution to be integrated within EHR deployments. The partnership will allow ITelagen’s clients to quickly send patient appointment reminders – increasing patient compliance and supporting the audit trail for patient communication. Sending patient collection reminders to shorten the revenue collection cycle, inclement weather notifications, patient recall notices, and many more pertinent notifications and communications are included.
ITelagen selected PhoneTree for its excellent integration with leading EHR platforms and the multitude of patient communication options available. ITelagen intends to market its support and services packages with PhoneTree HealthWave Connect to its clients across the country and varying EHR platforms. CEO of ITelagen, John O’Keefe, said “Packaging our support and services with PhoneTree’s HealthWave Connect is going to make using EHR simple and efficient, not only for the providers we support, but their patients, and is a must-have for any practice.”
PhoneTree’s HealthWave Connect is a cloud-based patient reminder system that can be used to send appointment reminders, special pre-visit instructions, recall notices, pre- and post-care instructions and more. Reminders are sent according to patient preferences – by phone, text, email (or any combination), over a HIPAA-secure system. In addition to honoring patient preferences and privacy, the integration can also substantially reduce no-shows for those practices that have been relying on staff to deliver reminders manually, therefore saving time and increasing profits.
ITelagen will continue to provide integrated solutions, implementation, hosting, and support as part of the packages offered. According to ITelagen, this “one-stop shop package for EHR” provides a medical practice with a full-spectrum platform that ensures the technology is accurate, efficient, and current with clinical and technical terms within the industry.
