Cranbury, NJ (PRWEB) October 16, 2015
BluePrint Healthcare IT launched a program to help pediatric hospitals and health systems prove the value of engaging families and care teams through mobile health software. The program offers two packages, based on the company’s award-winning platform, Care Navigator™. Care Navigator: Engage and Care Navigator: Activate each offer specific features – like secure texting, video conferencing, photo sharing, knowledge assessments and multimedia education – in a 90- or 180-day program.
“Pediatric hospitals serve a special mission to provide highly personalized care to each of their children and families. In today’s environment, this means finding new and innovative ways of creating connected relationships that are seamless regardless of the setting in which care is provided. They are looking to mobile health tools to help them engage families especially when serving the needs of an ever-increasing population of medically complex children whose parents and caregivers face significant challenges on a daily basis. These two Care Navigator™ packages lets them prove the value of mhealth for their families in as little as 90 days,” said Vikas Khosla, BluePrint Healthcare IT President & CEO.
The largest pediatric rehabilitation hospital in the United States, Children’s Specialized Hospital of New Jersey, along with BluePrint Healthcare IT, received the Microsoft Health Innovation Award in the Patient Engagement category at HIMSS15 in April, 2015. This honor reflected the power of personalized care coordination and mobile communication tools for pediatric organizations. Christopher Haines, DO, Chief Medical Officer, Children’s Specialized Hospital stated after receiving the award, “The work that we are doing together, through their Care Navigator™ platform and our PCMH, is another crucial step in our efforts to provide the most efficient and effective care for our patients – who make up some of the most medically complex children in the region – as well as their parents and family caregivers.”
