"The annual HIMSS event gives us a wonderful opportunity to meet one-on-one with people who are looking for the right technology solution for their specific situation," Mason said. "In this session, we intend to introduce attendees to a novel solution that is bridging the gap between the hospital, providers and health plans to provide the best possible care for patients."
MyHealthDIRECT provides a comprehensive service solution to assist healthcare organizations in increasing access to care, facilitating care management and improving quality measures. Whether it is a patient arriving in the emergency room for non-emergency treatment, a health plan member calling for a physician referral, or a patient in need of chronic disease management, MyHealthDIRECT’s solution ensures that patients connect with the most available–and appropriate–care provider for their unique health concern. Patients are automatically directed to the right health professionals offering the right services the right time and location. Its proprietary web-based software requires no additional hardware or software, no capital investment and minimal technical commitment.
The solution not only facilitates appointment booking at the point of service but also provides reminders, locates available public transportation and follows up with patients to ensure the appointment was kept or rescheduled. The system is well suited for call center and/or care/disease management environments within managed care organizations and hospitals, hospital emergency departments and discharge planning units. The solution integrates with any portal or client website for easy access.
