“MEDSEEK has a proven track record of providing industry-leading strategic patient management solutions.”
--Ed Vos, CEO and President of OnX
Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
MEDSEEK, the provider of the healthcare industry’s only enterprise strategic patient engagement and management solutions, has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with OnX, a leading North American enterprise data center IT solutions provider. OnX will leverage MEDSEEK’s strategic patient management solutions and OnX’s Federated Cloud Framework to help healthcare organizations optimize their IT investments.
“MEDSEEK has a proven track record of providing industry-leading strategic patient management solutions,” said Ed Vos, CEO and President of OnX. “Their experience and track record aligns well with OnX and we share a common focus on reducing the cost of health care, delivering more responsive patient services, and addressing the challenges of delivering the highest quality patient care across the entire continuum of care.”
As part of the agreement OnX will provide local support for MEDSEEK’s Canadian customers. With 13 offices in Canada, OnX is ideally positioned to support the more than 5,000 physicians who rely on MEDSEEK’s clinical software that provides them a safe, secure and complete view of health records for more than 5.5 million Canadian patients at the point of service.
According to International Data Corporation (IDC), Canadian healthcare information technology spending was understood to be more than $40 billion in 2011. MEDSEEK estimates that Canada’s 700+ hospitals represent a $200 million market opportunity for its clinical solution, which is at the core of the highly successful ClinicalConnect project in Ontario.
The deal allows OnX to distribute all of MEDSEEK’s enterprise strategic patient engagement solutions, including clinical, consumer, employee and patient technology, to provide a 360-degree digital health experience. By reselling these solutions and supporting referral business, MEDSEEK and OnX will expand MEDSEEK solutions throughout Canada and enable OnX to continue to expand its healthcare practice.
“It’s the right partnership for both of our organizations,” said Peter Kuhn, MEDSEEK CEO. “There is a need for more Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) to provide physicians with access to an integrated view of patient records. Today, MEDSEEK provides Canadian physicians a unified view of more than 5.5 million patient records in the Ontario region and that success, together with the accelerating deployment of digital health solutions, demands that we increase our presence in Canada. With their deep expertise in this area, OnX is ideally positioned to help us achieve this.”
The partnership also allows OnX to resell MEDSEEK’s state-of-the-art predictive analytics tools that help hospitals find valuable patients who are more likely to use services that are relevant to them, create and execute cost-effective, personalized marketing campaigns, and provide a consistently higher return on marketing investment.
