Affordable patient portal solution available to budget-conscious small- to medium-sized healthcare providers throughout U.S.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Rockville, Maryland – January 22, 2014 — Patient engagement just became easy, quick and affordable for small- to medium-sized healthcare providers, thanks to a new product from Get Real Health called InstantPHR™ Marketplace Direct.
InstantPHR Marketplace Direct enables providers to offer their patients an easy-to-use, secure online portal for communication, electronic medical record sharing, chronic disease management, care management messaging, alerts, journaling, symptom tracking and more. The portal can be set up in just a handful of clicks, allowing providers and patients to manage care securely via smartphones, tablets and computers.
“This patient engagement solution makes collaboration and communication with patients accessible for nearly any healthcare provider in the U.S., especially those who previously thought they couldn’t afford to make such a benefit available for their patients,” said Robin Wiener, Get Real Health president and founding partner. “So whether you are a small practice in rural Kansas or a start-up in Texas, InstantPHR Marketplace Direct will allow you to create your own patient engagement experience — and get it up and running in days instead of months.”
Great for Patients
From a patient’s perspective, having a secure portal through which they can track, organize, store and view their personal health information is a huge benefit — extremely helpful during emergencies, when traveling or seeing a new provider, or when managing care for family members. It streamlines care by preventing duplicate tests and procedures.
Simple for Physicians
With InstantPHR Marketplace Direct there’s no hardware to buy, no computer servers to maintain, no IT support staff to hire — just an elegantly designed patient or consumer portal solution that allows doctors and other small- to medium-sized healthcare providers with limited resources to invest in meeting their clinical needs instead of sinking money into complicated technology.
InstantPHR Marketplace Direct gives providers an online gateway to order an off-the-shelf “software-as-a-service” solution that will meet their patient engagement needs on a quarterly subscription basis. For an additional investment, providers can also order a version that helps them achieve federal Meaningful Use requirements.
The portal will be connected to the Microsoft® HealthVault® ecosystem for secure, readily available and trusted health information. With nine different color schemes to choose from, InstantPHR Marketplace Direct enables providers to select their portal’s look and customize the branding by inserting their own logo. For an additional cost, Get Real Health has also developed and pre-packaged a variety of marketing materials for educating patients on how to use the portal and its benefits.
“Because this solution is crafted specifically for small providers, it’s a wonderful way for small and rural communities throughout the U.S. to offer the patient engagement their populations deserve,” said Wiener.
