ColumbiaDoctors Selects HealthGrid’s Mobile Patient Engagement Platform to Enhance Patient Experience and Care Delivery

Technology Helps Providers and Patients Connect Anytime, Anywhere.

ORLANDO, FL– HealthGrid, a mobile patient engagement leader, today announced a new initiative with leading national multi-specialty healthcare practice ColumbiaDoctors. HealthGrid will enable ColumbiaDoctors’ physicians across the enterprise to connect with their patients anytime, anywhere, and through any mobile device, to provide actionable care coordination, access to critical health information, and to enable self-care management. HealthGrid offers the first patient engagement platform to help providers activate, acquire and retain patients while simultaneously complying with demanding regulatory requirements such as Meaningful Use and Medicare’s Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

As part of the initiative, ColumbiaDoctors will fully integrate HealthGrid’s patient engagement platform into its workflow to coordinate care delivery via mobile technology. The solution will also enable ColumbiaDoctors to enhance the patient experience through:

  • Timely pre-and post-visit communications
  • Access to care information to promote collaboration between ColumbiaDoctors’ care teams and care settings
  • Mobile check-in to improve office wait times and free up staff for more effective workflow activities
  • Personalized patient education to patients’ mobile devices
  • Instant patient feedback through real time assessments and surveys

Patients can connect with physicians using HealthGrid’s mobile patient engagement platform. This will help streamline operations and allow providers to spend more time caring for their patients.

“It is an honor to collaborate with one of the country’s leading, forward-thinking health systems,” said Raj Toleti, co-founder and CEO of HealthGrid. “We are committed to ensuring that organizations like ColumbiaDoctors have an integrated approach to patient engagement, ensuring patients and care teams are in sync at every care touchpoint, while also achieving the highest levels of MU attestation for patient-facing measures. Our intelligent, mobile platform not only continuously delivers actionable health information to patients, but is a perfect complement to the high-tech, high-touch care philosophy at ColumbiaDoctors.”
