The communication platform helps us be proactive with the physician-in-charge and manage the patient’s condition more holistically, ultimately improving outcomes
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) March 07, 2012
Pentec Health Inc., today announced the launch of its proprietary, confidential, and secure online electronic communication platform, called myPentec. myPentec already contains the previously launched Physician Portal and now includes the newly created Patient Portal. The Patient Portal provides patients with 24/7 access to their own records and two-way HIPAA-compliant electronic messaging with their Pentec Health care team.
This announcement demonstrates Pentec Health’s continued dedication to investments in technologies that enhance the quality of healthcare in today’s fragmented system. With the addition of the Patient Portal to myPentec, Pentec patients can take a more active role in their continuum of care, thereby improving their overall satisfaction with the services provided.
Feature-rich Patient Portal
“Some of the most compelling features available through the Patient Portal include: the ability for patients to contact their primary care nurse via email or text messaging; and, a direct line of sight into their pain and/or spasticity outcomes versus their goals displayed in an attractive graphical layout,” stated Tim Leffler, Chief Information Officer.
Michael Abens, General Manager and Executive Vice President, further explains, “The addition of the Patient Portal to myPentec is one more step in our evolutionary process to improve the care provided across a multidisciplinary team. It allows everyone to be on the same page regarding complete and accurate medical information.” Abens continues, “Our patients generally have several physicians addressing complex health concerns. myPentec can serve as a central repository for all the medications a patient is taking, whether for diabetes, hypertension, depression or any other condition. Some of these medications may affect the pain and spasticity management that Pentec provides. The communication platform helps us be proactive with the physician-in-charge and manage the patient’s condition more holistically, ultimately improving outcomes.”
A series of future enhancements to myPentec are currently in development for release later this year designed to further engage patients with their caregivers and physicians, and improve the overall healthcare experience for all users.
