ATLANTA, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Assent, the leading provider of real-time patient satisfaction surveys and online reputation marketing solutions for the United States healthcare market, today announced it has joined the Greenway Medical Technologies online Marketplace of value-added partners for users of Greenway's integrated electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solutions.
Being named a Marketplace approved partner signifies cooperative efforts between Digital Assent and Greenway to provide comprehensive, mission-critical health IT solutions that support the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective care.
Patient satisfaction is becoming a front-and-center issue in the healthcare conversation. Last year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services finalized details of a new reimbursement method that adjusts payments based on patient satisfaction scores -- a measure also being adopted by private insurers. And patient satisfaction scores often appear as the only scores on public websites designed to help patients make more informed choices about where to seek healthcare.
Digital Assent's tablet-based PatientPad® solution is the healthcare industry's first in-office solution for capturing online reviews and testimonials from patients. Patients use an iPad® tablet to rate their visit and share their feedback at the time of service and, with each patient's consent, the reviews and testimonials can be automatically published online to the doctor's website, Facebook page, Google search results and a growing number of established doctor review sites.
"Membership in the Greenway Marketplace showcases our expertise in helping doctors improve patient satisfaction and grow their online reputation, and demonstrates our ability to complement Greenway and its solutions," said Andrew Ibbotson, founder and CEO of Digital Assent. "Our award-winning PatientPad platform and ReviewCatcher technology are ideally suited to help Greenway customers compete more effectively in today's rapidly changing healthcare marketplace."
"The Greenway Marketplace showcases partners like Digital Assent that have developed innovative solutions highly complementary to Greenway solutions," said Jared Lisenby, Greenway vice president of business development. "Greenway customers now have the option of adopting PatientPad® and ReviewCatcher(TM) through the Marketplace with the assurance that it adds value to their Greenway implementation and is ready to help them navigate healthcare's future."
