Coordinating Healthcare in a Web of Providers
Patients have multiple touch-points across the healthcare community
But information doesn’t always seamlessly flow
Communication breakdowns can compromise patient safety, quality, and efficiency
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could monitor patient care throughout the healthcare ecosystem?
Healthconnect has steadily grown into a robust ecosystem at over 1,250+ venues of care, representing 95% of the community’s largest hospitals and health systems. All in, Healthconnect’s data repository reflects over 15 million unique patients. Ultimately, the integration of health information improves the delivery of healthcare by enhancing patient safety, improving quality, saving time, reducing costs, and enhancing efficiencies.
