San Jose, Calif. – 30 August 2016 – VMDOC®, a cloud-based patient engagement platform, and HSTpathways, the leader in ASC surgery software and outpatient information systems, announced an interoperability agreement that provides high value to both patients and providers. This strategic partnership offers providers, anesthesiologists, and nurses a more efficient workflow, long-term cost savings, and a comprehensive view of the patients throughout the continuum of care.
With payment models moving toward value-based payment, interoperability between ambulatory surgery center (ASC) software and patient engagement platforms is the key to success in making healthcare more efficient and effective. By integrating VMDOC and ASC systems, the providers are now able to stay more connected with the patient and provide the highest quality of care.
Benefits of this interoperability include:
- Decrease in missed appointments
- Increase in direct patient-provider communication
- Reduction of preventable complications and hospital readmissions
- Minimized risk of HIPAA breach
- Rise in patient satisfaction
“We are really excited at this opportunity to change the future of healthcare in conjunction with HSTpathways. We are working together on forging a path forward to improve the future of patient care. VMDOC gives patients an active voice in their healthcare, and empowers providers to offer high quality, innovative care throughout the continuum of care. HSTpathways is a leader in ASC surgery management and outpatient information systems, and we are honored to work with them,” said Shahram Gholami, Co-Founder and CEO of VMDOC.
