Alegent Creighton Health Adopts InteliChart's Patient Portal

CHARLOTTE, N.C. --(Business Wire)--

InteliChart, LLC, is pleased to announce the successful rollout of the InteliChart patient portal at Alegent Creighton Health of Omaha, Neb. Following a pilot phase involving 7 providers at 1 practice, Alegent Creighton Health deployed the portal to an additional 221 providers located at 44 different practices. Key functionality immediately utilized by patients includes secure messaging, scheduling, prescription requests and alerts. Since the InteliChart patient portal embeds a personal health record, providers are also able to share clinical results and documentation with patients upon request or demand.

"Patient-friendly solutions allow our patients to easily register and immediately begin engaging in their care process," said Jim Burgart, Alegent Creighton Health Operations Leader for Information Systems. "Patient engagement is the foundation for success with many of our health system initiatives."

"We know that patients who use our portal are not only engaged in managing their own care, they are also loyal to their practtioners," said Gary Hamilton, President of InteliChart. "The portal makes it easy for practitioners and patients to overcome traditional communication barriers and become more closely connected. We're delighted to be working with Alegent Creighton Health to bring the portal to their providers and patients."


Alegent Creighton Health conducted a year-long search for a patient portal with the expectation that it could meet both its strategic and functionality goals. This included Alegent Creighton Health's objective to continuously enhance the care experience for patients and families through technology that provides value to the patient without additional cost, and continues to improve the quality of care delivered.
