ORLANDO, Fla. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PatientPoint®, the leader and innovator of patient and physician engagement solutions at the point of care, announced today the release of their tablet-based next generation population health management dashboard. The new dashboard enhances PatientPoint’s award-winning Care Coordination Platform, which also includes best-in-class digital check-in and outreach technology. Combined, the product suite streamlines registration and collections processes, enhances the patient experience, and drives net new practice revenues through improved quality and performance.

PatientPoint sets a new standard for easily organizing care across patient populations and facilitating actions on gaps in care. Through intuitive design and tablet access, workflows remain uninterrupted, the PatientPoint population health management dashboard allows providers to segment, monitor and actively engage patient populations in real-time—supporting provider efforts to improve quality of care and health outcomes. “The ease of use of the mobile tablet dashboard supports expedited closure of care gaps and drives patient outcomes, and keeps costs down,” said Raj Toleti, president of Coordinated Care Solutions and CTO for PatientPoint. "As a result, physicians can be more proactive in prescribing their care plans, and patients have more information and knowledge to make better decisions regarding their own care.”

The new design of the PatientPoint population health management dashboard also supports improved practice operations. The tablet-enabled dashboard architecture has already demonstrated at premier healthcare organizations that it drives the revenue cycle because it not only monitors the care gaps and actions closing of the gaps, but also increases collections, augments the clean claim rate and drives improvement in quality and reimbursement through point-of-care screening and assessments. Practices can realize new efficiencies through ease of access to the latest patient information, and through real-time notifications on relevant patient information.

Additionally, sweeping changes in healthcare delivery and payment reform have made it necessary for providers to stand-up solutions that offer a complete view of their patient population. “The PatientPoint suite of solutions plays an important role in significant practice transformation efforts at Diagnostic Clinic that are aimed at engaging patients, differentiating their experience, and improving efficiency while at the same time improving care. PatientPoint’s population health management dashboard excels at tracking patients across the care continuum. We reviewed other solutions and selected PatientPoint as the best in class because of their overall excellence in a variety of solutions,” said Dr. James Rivenbark, chief medical and operations officer at Diagnostic Clinic, based in Largo, FL. “With the new design and tablet access, we know immediately when there’s a gap in care, but we also know where the gap occurred and have the tools to close it. That kind of visibility on the patient isn’t available elsewhere.”
