FRISCO, Texas (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Private Social Networks® (http://www.PSN.net) announced today that it has been selected as one of only 10 companies chosen from nearly 100 candidates to present at MedVentures 2012 – the industry’s premier event for medical investors and educators.
“It is an honor to be selected out of so many companies as one of MedVentures Top 10 choices to present our innovative social media platform for Healthcare – the first and only HIPPA-compliant cloud-based platform enabling collaboration, communication and education across the entire continuum of care.” said CEO Len Chermack.
PSN, the developer of Connect2Health®, a device independent, integrated HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant, secured, Software-as-a-Service private cloud solution that uses social media features to enable hospitals, public health agencies, medical device manufacturers and other essential healthcare providers to communicate securely and directly with patients, families and caregivers while adhering to government mandates and timelines.
According to Don Fluckinger of SearchHealthIT, “Public sites such as Facebook, Google Groups, LinkedIn, Twitter and blogging sites carry with them many potential HIPAA compliance problems, despite their upside to potentially drive patient engagement, one of the overarching themes of meaningful use stage 2.”
This government program mandates that hospitals meet compliance by October 2013 or it might cost these institutions tens of millions of dollars in revenue annually.
“Private Social Networks timing could not be better, our solution addresses the core component of the government mandate for “patient engagement” and does so in a secure, compliant, hospital branded SaaS platform that can be delivered immediately;” Chermack said.
Other Private Social Networks products include: Connect2Thought®, Connect2Learn®, and Connect2Cause® and can be paired with Connect2Health®.
“Our device independent technology provides access to the critical healthcare information those members in a community need. I personally know the difficulties as a remote family member and caregiver how frustrating it is trying to communicate with all from a remote location.”
said Roy Gum, a former Silicon Valley executive, Co-Founder, and CTO of Private Social Networks who developed the product after a personal family experience.
