Smartlink Mobile Systems: Patient/Provider Mobile Communication App Improves Quality of Care and Ensures Full Compliance with Medicare Chronic Care Management
With PHN, patients have a real-time, secure, mobile link to all of their providers. Unlike patient portals, which are typically unique to each physician and emphasize clinic information access, PHN enables bidirectional clinical and administrative dialog. Patients can manage all their family’s medical questions, appointments, refills, check-in, and share clinical documents with their providers, at any moment, from their mobile device.
Smartlink also offers the only single platform solution that ensures healthcare organizations are fully compliant with the Medicare Chronic Care Management (CCM) program’s technology requirements, including 100 percent community wide electronic document exchange, asynchronous patient communication, aggregate month to date time tracking, and auditable documentation. Smartlink’s innovative CCM solution was designed to optimize workflow efficiency, maximize available CCM billings each month, and minimize audit risk.
Our emphasis will continue to be around the role of the patient in the new world of healthcare, and maximizing their involvement in care
According to Siu Tong, healthcare organizations are turning towards robust, cloud-based and mobile technologies, because they are faster to implement and cheaper to maintain. For example, Smartlink is leveraging the latest healthcare IT standard to effectively exchange information with any 2015 MU2 certified EHR without costly integrations, achieving a near universal and rapid electronic exchange of patient information between virtually any EHR. The company is continuing to deliver innovations that ease the burden of value-based payment models, and sees mobile health as integral in a value-based world. “Our emphasis will continue to be around the role of the patient in the new world of healthcare, and maximizing their involvement in care,” concludes Siu Tong.
