The ability to gather information directly from patients supports wellness and preventive care through enhanced technology, an issue of growing importance to patients and physicians
Columbia, SC (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
Primetime Medical Software, Inc., announced today that MDVIP, Inc., the national network of physicians specializing in personalized preventive medicine, has selected Instant Medical History's medical knowledge base and questionnaire platform. The integration of the Instant Medical History solution will provide the most comprehensive patient history questionnaires available to the myMDVIP patient portal, which provides a secure communication link between healthcare providers and their patients.
Instant Medical History™ from Primetime Medical Software is designed to gather patient medical history and history of present illness information. Patients respond to branching, multiple-choice questionnaires from an extensive medical knowledgebase. This provides physicians with more accurate and consistently presented preliminary information, resulting in a more focused interview in support of better patient care and faster documentation.
"The ability to gather information directly from patients supports wellness and preventive care through enhanced technology, an issue of growing importance to patients and physicians," said Matthew Ferrante, CEO, Primetime Medical Software.
"Having interviewed numerous vendors, we selected Instant Medical History as the most comprehensive and flexible questionnaire tool. Since we've adopted IMH, our physicians have been extremely pleased with the patient information," said Kevin Offel, Senior Vice President, Operations, MDVIP, Inc.
