MEDSEEK, the provider of the healthcare industry’s only enterprise strategic patient engagement solution and GetWellNetwork® Inc., provider of the industry’s leading interactive patient care (IPC) solution, today announced their partnership to provide healthcare facilities with a powerful patient engagement solution that will deliver patients greater access to personalized health information, interactive tools, educational materials and customized care plans throughout their healthcare journey. Well ahead of the time when Meaningful Use Stage 3 requires them to do so, hospitals and health systems will be able to leverage the combined solution to empower patients to serve as active participants in their care pre-admission, during their hospital stay and post-discharge.
By incorporating Get Well@Home into MEDSEEK’s certified enterprise patient portal, provider organizations can extend personalized, educational content and Interactive Care Plans™ to patients outside the hospital walls via the web and mobile devices. The technology facilitates a patient-centered care approach to help achieve population health and wellness, improve care quality and outcomes, reduce readmissions and better contain costs.
