SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, and HealthFeed, a multichannel, embedded patient engagement platform, have partnered together so providers will have access to over 10x more educational content within the DrChrono EHR platform.
As part of DrChrono’s EHR platform, providers can now use the HealthFeed module to give patients medically validated health education illustrations and articles within the mediums that they use the most, such as emails and text messages. The module also includes video and Spanish content, and uses simple language patients can read and understand and will be able to access from the patient view of the EHR.
For providers, the HealthFeed module is a one stop shop to add various medically validated patient education content libraries, enhance current patient education programs and save clinical time identifying, administering and sending education content to patients. Providers can share digestible, instructive content designed to engage and empower patients to become active participants in their care. A medical practice can also track the percentage of their patients who received education resources for Meaningful Use reporting through detailed analytics dashboards.
“Patients remember about 80% more information when presented with both a visual aid and verbal instruction, rather than just verbal instruction, and research also shows that the moment of diagnosis is an ineffective time to teach overwhelmed patients the details of self-management,” said Sai Ganesamoorthi, Co-Founder and CEO of HealthFeed. “HealthFeed libraries are giving providers using the DrChrono platform ten times the amount of education content to offer their patients, and we’re excited to reach many more practices across the country so they can better inform their patients on self-care for a variety of chronic conditions.”
“Adding informative, educational content to our EHR is a priority for DrChrono, and HealthFeed has done an excellent job gathering medically validated content to share with practices,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono. “HealthFeed has also made it easy for providers to text and email these articles and videos to their patients, so patients don’t have to log into a portal and remember passwords to review it. And as Meaningful Use requirements expect more details on patient education programs, the HealthFeed module has an effective way to track this for providers. We are thrilled to add HealthFeed to our EHR platform.”
