MEDHOST Takes 300th Hospital Live on YourCareCommunity Healthcare Engagement Platform
Threshold marks MEDHOST as one of the nation’s largest best-of-breed portal vendors
FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Dec. 15, 2014 –MEDHOST is pleased to announce that more than 300 hospitals have gone live on YourCareCommunity, making it one of the nation’s largest vendor-agnostic and only cloud-based, multi-tenant patient portals. These go-lives reflect the growing commitment of hospital executives to make patient engagement a cornerstone of their long-term strategies. The YourCareCommunity healthcare engagement platform provides the patient-centric ease of use and cutting-edge functionality that providers need as part of maintaining Meaningful Use requirements, and it delivers what consumers want as they move to new virtual habits within a population health framework.
YourCareCommunity shares information across locations and providers and makes data available on-demand throughout the continuum of care, resulting in better outcomes, safer care and increased patient engagement. Additionally, the health consumer is more likely to adopt this approach and integrate their wellness and other health information into one central, secure environment where they can control access and manage the delivery, both before they become a patient and throughout care.
“Hospitals must provide a conduit for continuous engagement by presenting patient data in one location from across the continuum of care, and that is exactly what the patient portal functionality in YourCareCommunity does,” said Rick Frederick, chief information officer for Cottage Hospital in Woodsville, New Hampshire. “YourCareCommunity is intuitive, and that helps foster rapid adoption among clinicians and patients alike. As a platform, YourCareCommunity is integral to both our patient engagement strategy . Also, our efforts to enhance the care we deliver to our community.”
As a Contributing Member of the CommonWell Alliance, MEDHOST designed YourCareCommunity to help redefine standards for a next-generation, vendor-agnostic portal platform. Its untethered and cloud-based architecture allows for the ability to roll out instant updates across all of a community’s hospitals and clinics and liberates providers from the burden of purchasing and installing onsite hardware or software. With this strategic engagement platform in place, hospitals can improve care, foster transparency and increase patient loyalty.
YourCareCommunity, which has been certified as both a modular inpatient and ambulatory EHR, positions hundreds of providers on the path to attestation for the 2014 Edition of Meaningful Use. Also incorporated into its platform, YourCareCommunity offers a Business Analytics solution, a physician portal, an enterprise master patient index (EMPI) and a health information exchange (HIE). Additionally, MEDHOST offers COMPASS, a comprehensive consulting program. It is specifically to help hospitals drive patient adoption while ensuring strategic alignment and success.
“Patient engagement is a key tenet of Meaningful Use and healthcare reform. We built YourCareCommunity to be patient-centric. This is a main reason why hospitals are choosing YourCareCommunity regardless of the EHR solution being utilized,” said Lionel Tehini, president of MEDHOST Cloud Applications. “Building connected care communities nationwide is a critical step in improving collaboration, provider operations, care delivery, and most important, clinical outcomes.”
