Allscripts plots growth in health IT
Chicago-based Allscripts Healthcare Solutions has further solidified its position in the connected health platform space with its acquisition of HealthGrid — and an Allscripts executive says more M&A activity is ahead.
Allscripts — which provides physician practices, hospitals, and other health care providers with practice management and electronic health record technology — acquired the health care IT division of McKesson for $185 million in cash last fall before laying out another $100 million to pick up Silicon Valley's Practice Fusion electronic health record platform earlier this year. The company closed its $60 million cash deal for HealthGrid in May. Improving the level of patient engagement with providers – while boosting Allscripts' customer base and product portfolio — was the driving force behind each of these deals, according to Jim Hewitt, executive vice president of solutions development for Allscripts, who sat down with Crain's last week to discuss the string of acquisitions — and hint at what's ahead.
"We firmly believe there will be continued consolidation in the health IT market, down to maybe three to four major players," Hewitt said. "We're doing what we need to do to make sure we are one of those three." The deal with McKesson represented a synergistic fit, he said, while the HealthGrid acquisition was all about snapping up a patient-engagement tool that will be valuable to Allscripts going forward.
That tool was the brainchild of Raj Toleti, the co-founder of HealthGrid who was recently honored as "Entrepreneur of the Year" for Florida in the health care technology category. Toleti previously founded (and later sold) two other companies in this same field of patient engagement technology, Galvanon and Cytura. He launched HealthGrid in early 2015 with an emphasis on incorporating smartphone technology into the provider-patient equation.
Patients are becoming more and more comfortable with communicating with their health care providers and their office staffs online — and especially via smartphone. Integrating HealthGrid with Allscripts' existing platform, called FollowMyHealth, will make life easier for patients and health care workers, providing a single platform for accessing test results and medical history, booking appointments, paying outstanding bills, and completing myriad other functions.
"We truly believe patient engagement is going to be a platform play," Toleti said. "Patients want one, unified platform across care settings."

From point of care to mobile communication: Patient engagement spans the entire healthcare journey
A healthy patient might spend as little as 15 to 30 minutes with his or her primary care doctor during the course of a year.
Add chronic health conditions to the mix, and that same patient will spend an average of 15 hours with his or her doctor out of 8,760 total hours in a year. Whether 15 minutes or 15 hours, point of care visits are critical milestones in a patient’s health journey. It’s where providers diagnose and treat patients, but it should serve as just the beginning of the provider-patient relationship.

HealthGrid Introduces Industry's First mobile, enterprise patient engagement Platform - "Meeting Patients Where They Are"
The statistics are startling. Large Health Systems and Provider Organizations leveraging HealthGrid's mobile CRM platform for patient outreach, registration, and care coordination have experienced a:
- 200% increase in patient engagement compared to their traditional patient engagement tactics.
- 40% improvement in quality through closure of gaps in care.
- 20% reduction in administrative costs; and increased patient portion collections.
"As consumers are moving towards on-demand access, nothing is more important than enabling the immediacy, convenience, and connectivity of mobile technology to deliver actionable health information. We've found that less engagement is more, if you activate the patient with precise timing and context" - said Raj Toleti, co-founder of HealthGrid.
From pre-care notifications to point-of-care registration, and finally, to patient-specific, post-care follow up, HealthGrid enables care teams to reach patients and their families instantly with valuable health information—and patients can respond instantly with the touch of a fingertip. It's the only enterprise platform of its kind allowing providers to engage patients at any point in the care continuum using one mobile platform:
Gap in Care Identification, Intelligent Notifications, Pre-visit Education and Prep, Mobile Check-in and Automated Secure Messaging
Check-in, In Patient Notifications/Campaigns, Patient Family Engagement, Patient Education and Discharge Prep
Discharge Instructions, Care Summaries, Clinical Follow Ups, Referral Management and Automated Secure Messaging
"Each HealthGrid service is designed to solve a particular challenge," said Edward Martinez, SVP and CIO of Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital. "Connecting patients, families and care givers with one mobile platform is essential today, Healthgrid's platform gives patients and their families everything they need to know about their care journey and at the same time the platform ensures that every staff member has the same actionable information"
