The award winning patient-centric solution now offers secure HIPAA compliant messaging between hospital clinicians and affiliated physicians for consultation and comprehensive patient care
Silicon Valley November 13, 2014
AGNITY Healthcare (AHI), a rapidly growing provider of Integrated Clinical Communications for healthcare providers today announced the addition of AnyDoc™ feature as a part of its patient-centric clinical communications solution, APTUS MobileCare™.
APTUS MobileCare™ is the industry’s most advanced care-team coordination and collaboration solution for healthcare providers across the continuum of care. It combines secure text, voice and video consultation with clinical data through simple and easy-to-use mobile and web clients.
AnyDoc™ is an extension of APTUS MobileCare™ that enables MobileCare subscribers to communicate with affiliated physicians in a secure, HIPAA compliant patient-centric manner. Any doctor who does not work directly for a hospital, physician group or ACO can be provisioned as an ‘affiliate’ that the MobileCare subscriber can consult or communicate with, in a secure fashion, specific to their patient’s need. All messages sent between MobileCare subscribers and the affiliate are sent securely through MobileCare via a URL link. The MobileCare subscriber and affiliate can then communicate in a secure manner compliant with HIPAA privacy and security regulations.
“Clinical consultations are a big part of arriving at the best decision and outcome for patients. It often involves the need for clinical consults within and outside the organization. An example would be a need to consult with specialists not on the patient’s care team, or not local to the attending physician. With AnyDoc™, that consultation can be instantly established with the specialists wherever they are. And, the specialists can engage with the MobileCare-enabled attending physician using the mobile phone they carry,” says Dr. Aseem Saklecha, Chief Medical Officer, AHI.
“Healthcare providers should not be limited by how or who they can securely consult with on behalf of the patient. With AnyDoc™, the possibilities with clinical communications are limitless, whether for patient referrals, consults or status,” says Ken Epps, President & CEO AHI. “We believe solutions that extend their reach beyond the boundaries of their own organizations in a secure HIPAA compliant fashion are essential to a healthcare provider organization’s mobile communications strategy, and that AnyDoc™ meets this need.”
APTUS MobileCare™ is a proven award-winning solution improving the state of clinical communications & collaboration across the US and Asia.
