Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
NextServices™ today announced that the company will be unveiling enki Patient Portal™, a dynamic two-way health bridge connecting patients to their doctors at the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) conference 2014. The portal adds to the growing suite of the enki ecosystem that is changing how healthcare is delivered.
The enki Patient Portal™ saves an enormous amount of time for staff members by allowing patients to update their medical history, allergies, insurance and demographic information and request medication refills instead of having to contact the center. It allows real-time sharing of medical records and communication with patients. Using the portal, patients can view present and historical medical records, lab results and refer to educational resources to better understand and track the course of treatment. The portal also integrates with 23andMe®, a DNA testing service and Fitbit®, an activity monitor, paving the way for a data-driven form of medical care.
“Our main focus while building the patient portal was to enhance patient engagement with their care givers. We wanted to provide centers and physicians a simple yet comprehensive platform and give patients access to an environment that would provide them better control of their health. The cohesion between the patient portal and enki EHR™ and enki ASC™ ensures a seamless flow of medical information,” said Satish Malnaik, CEO and Co-founder, NextServices.
The enki ASC™ solution features an integrated endoscopy writer which can be connected to an endoscope to capture real time procedure images. It serves as a clinical and management platform where a surgeon can document a patient’s record easily, in a clinically pertinent way. The operative note can be customized to include procedure images within minutes. Specific tracking modules help document a surgery prior to, during and post procedures. Administrators and clinical assistants can use integrated surgery safety modules and adhere to global standards of ambulatory care. The iPad app allows doctors to make notes on endoscopy images and retrieve medical records while on the move.
Being a cloud and mobile-based platform, enki does not require centers to invest in expensive servers and IT staff. The platform also integrates revenue cycle services offered by NextServices that include benefits, prior authorization, billing and compliance management.
“In the next 10 years, a significant number of physician visits will not occur in-person as medicine increasingly becomes data-driven. ASCA brings together thought leaders in ambulatory care. It’s the best place to introduce enki Patient Portal™ that would help surgery centers prepare for the future.” said Praveen Suthrum, President and Co-founder, NextServices.
Attendees can experience the enki EHR™, enki ASC™ and enki Patient Portal™ on the ASCA exhibit floor at booth 504, May 14-17, 2014.
