Patient portal gives providers and patients new options for delivering and managing care
PITTSBURGH & CHARLOTTE, N.C., Apr 14, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Askesis Development Group, a leader in software solutions for the behavioral health, addictions treatment, and social service markets, today announced that it has partnered with InteliChart, a leading provider of patient engagement and HIE technology. Through the partnership, Askesis will add the 2014-ONC certified InteliChart Patient Portal as its exclusive patient engagement solution, giving Askesis clients a secure way to exchange health data in accordance with Meaningful Use Stage 2 standards.
The patient portal’s advanced technology allows patients and their providers to stay connected and share critical health information, helping providers become more efficient and empowering patients to take an active role in managing their own healthcare. In addition, by leveraging InteliChart’s application programming interface (API), Askesis will be able to seamlessly integrate the patient portal into its software offerings and ensure that clients receive ongoing feature upgrades.
“We wanted a proven patient portal technology vendor-partner to help meet our needs as well as those of our customers and their patients,” said Askesis’s Bob Teitt, Vice President of Technology and Business Development. “The InteliChart Patient Portal does all of that. It integrates perfectly with our software while helping our customers achieve Meaningful Use. Most important, the patient portal enables patients to take ownership of their own healthcare, which can lead to improved care and better outcomes.”
With a rich set of features, the InteliChart Patient Portal enhances the care experience for both patients and providers. For example, patients and practice staff can communicate with each other online 24/7 through the patient portal’s HIPAA-compliant secure messaging. Moreover, patients can use the portal to update their medical records, request appointments, and receive and pay their bills.
Gary Hamilton, president of InteliChart, said: “We’re delighted that the InteliChart Patient Portal technology will now be complementing Askesis’s behavioral health solutions. With the patient portal, Askesis customers can offer patients even more opportunities for connection and engagement.
