HSTpathways, an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) clinical and financial management software platform and CareWire, Inc, a mobile, patient engagement solution provider announced today that they have entered into a partnership that provides HSTpathways customers access to a solution to easily and immediately connect with patients through both traditional and secure text messaging.
“CareWire recognizes that in today’s mobile-centric world patients expect communications regarding their health to be timely and accessible,” states Tom Hui, President and CEO of HSTpathways. “The improvement opportunities with text messaging are boundless and we see the partnership with CareWire as consistent with our mission and vision to continually improve upon our information technology and reflect best practices. Together, we deliver a solution that brings value to both our customers and our respective organizations,” Hui said.
“HSTpathways is an industry leader in the ASC management software space,” states Ken Saitow, President and CEO of CareWire. “Their seamless and closed-loop automation of the data file transfer from HSTpathways to CareWire allows implementation to occur very quickly. This automation translates into ambulatory surgery centers and their patients rapidly realizing the benefits of CareWire. Benefits that include more efficient use of staff, improved show rates, better prepared patients and an enhanced experience.”
Tina Mentz, Vice President of Business Development at CareWire and former administrator at Elmhurst Outpatient Surgery Center commented on the power of the combined solution. “I had the opportunity to implement both CareWire and HSTpathways during my tenure at Elmhurst. While we had many successes as a result of implementing CareWire, HST’s automated data transmission process was the final step in achieving operational efficiency. To me, the ultimate partnership of these two industry leaders seemed natural,” Mentz said.
