Weston, FL and St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
LDM Group, LLC (LDM), the leading provider of behavior based health management programs, and gMed, the leading provider of Electronic Health Records for Gastroenterology, announced a partnership to bring LDM’s clinically relevant healthcare messaging programs to gMed’s EHR clientele.
In a recent study, the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics found that better adherence and more careful prescribing of antibiotics could reduce total annual health expenditure in the U.S. by an astounding eight percent. Through this partnership, gMed’s EHR users now have access to LDM’s real-time messaging programs which serve to improve patient medication compliance and health outcomes while preserving privacy. The programs enhance the physician-patient dialogue by providing the incentive needed for the patient to fill their prescription. LDM provides this information through its patented ConnectSys® 3.0 system, which supports the portfolio of messaging programs at the point-of-care. This partnership will help reduce costs for gMed clients, as well as further enable them to provide optimal patient care.
“Delivering a communication platform that is robust and informative is critical in terms of patient and physician education,” stated Matt Schreiber, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy at gMed. “Providing the right level and type of communication which will assist our clients and their patients in areas that can increase medication adherence and highlight therapy options falls in line with our focus as a leader in our space.”
“Both LDM and gMed understand that the key to the future of healthcare lies in more informed and involved patients and through this partnership great strides will be made toward achieving that goal,” stated Mark Heinold, CEO of LDM Group.
Moving forward, LDM and gMed will work together to improve their offerings, even developing new products in order to benefit clients and their patients.
