Xerox to Implement PatientPoint Technology to Improve Health Care
Xerox will train and support clinical staff in use of the PatientPoint software to help shorten the learning curve and ensure proficiency.Print management specialist Xerox will work with hospitals and physician practices to introduce PatientPoint’s digital check-in and population health management software, the result of a $28 million contract awarded to the company. The technology, part of PatientPoint’s patient-physician engagement suite of offerings, collects information from multiple sources into a single view to help doctors identify and address gaps in a patient’s care in and out of the exam room. In addition to integrating PatientPoint’s technology into existing systems in health care provider facilities, Xerox will train and support clinical staff in use of the software to help shorten the learning curve and ensure proficiency. "As the leader in patient engagement, we’ve seen a strong demand for our mobile-enabled technology solutions," Tom McGuinness, CEO of PatientPoint, said in a statement. "We are thrilled to partner with Xerox, a clear leader in IT implementation services. Together we will be able to extend our leadership in creating meaningful value for providers and the health care system as a whole."
PatientPoint’s system helps physicians continue engagement by enabling patients to opt for mobile and online communication related to their care, with the aim of easing a physician's ability to close the gap by offering to schedule an appointment for the procedure.
