Coordinating care is a challenge that affects every stakeholder in healthcare. Physicians, pharmacies, hospitals, emergency medical services, insurance companies, patients, their families, and caregivers all need to collaborate effectively and efficiently. Care collaboration is even more important during attempts to mitigate infectious disease exposure, support end of life needs, and facilitate transitions of care, where mistakes can be compounded, putting your patients and organization at risk.
Another key element of care coordination is sharing Protected Health Information (PHI) in a rapid, real-time, HIPAA-compliant, secure method to ensure patients receive timely and effective treatment. Lengthy phone calls, lack of HIPAA-compliant messaging, and siloed systems can lead to inefficiencies, patient safety issues, and delays. That’s why secure communications from anywhere at any time is critical to success in the Healthiverse.
