PatientPoint 360° Activates Physician-Patient Partnership through EHR-Enabled, Mobile-Ready Patient Portal

ORLANDO, Fla. --(Business Wire)--

PatientPoint® today announced the launch of PatientPoint 360°, a robust mobile-ready patient portal featuring advanced health management tools that provide patients with on-demand access to their physicians and health information. PatientPoint 360° complements the award-winning PatientPoint Care Coordination Platform and patient education programs to offer providers the most comprehensive suite of patient engagement solutions.

"PatientPoint 360° is a logical outgrowth of our core competencies," said Tom McGuinness, CEO, PatientPoint. "PatientPoint has best-in-class point-of-care patient engagement technology and programs, and now our product portfolio provides a bi-directional, contextual connection between patients and physicians."

PatientPoint 360° combines the power of market-leading patient education, payer information and patient electronic health record (EHR)data, enabling a personalized patient portal experience that closes gaps in care and drives medication management and adherence. And given its mobile-ready delivery-on desktop, tablet or phone-it provides a seamless continuity of engagement that strengthens the patient-physician partnership, while supporting population health management.


"Improving the patient experience and delivering care that supports better outcomes requires technology that keeps the patient in focus, but also facilitates good provider workflow," said Dr. David Levin, chief medical information officer at Cleveland Clinic. "PatientPoint 360° simplifies communications and information sharing to activate patients-wherever they may be-and that personalization and pervasiveness is critical to improving outcomes."

The core patient portal functions also automates processes that can be burdensome to staff and frustrating for patients-scheduling, bill paying and test result notifications among others. Plus PatientPoint 360° not only satisfies meaningful use Stage 2 criteria for patient portals, but also can trigger patient education and gap-in-care or treatment adherence information specific to each patient. This can deliver incredible value to practices working toward aggressive clinical quality, patient satisfaction and outcomes goals.

"There's an unprecedented need for health technology among patients, yet so many solutions create more data silos and hinder the patient experience," said Dr. Geeta Nayyar, chief medical information officer, PatientPoint. "Providers who offer PatientPoint 360° can use the secure technology to establish a collaborative and data-driven connection with patients. Health happens outside the walls of traditional care settings, and mobile health will be the lynchpin of improving the patient experience moving forward."

PatientPoint 360° is available to practices striving to elevate the patient experience, manage patient populations, improve outcomes and streamline operations. Patients of the practice will have instant access to their health information at home and on-the-go through this practice-branded website and mobile platform.
