CHICAGO, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Allscripts unveiled plans for a new telehealth solution to expand convenient access to care while enabling patients and providers to save time and money. The solution will integrate the American Well ™ Online Care telehealth platform into the Allscripts Electronic Health Records (EHR) platform, taking another step toward Allscripts vision of a Connected Community of Health ™.
Integrating telehealth with Allscripts EHRs will give patients new ways to access care, whether they are at home or on the road. Healthcare providers will benefit by offering high-quality online voice and video interactions documented via their electronic health record, enhancing care coordination across providers.
University of South Florida (USF) Health, a partnership of USF's colleges of medicine, nursing, public health and pharmacy as well as USF Physician Group, is planning to use this new offering in a unique relationship with The Villages, the country's largest over-55 residential community, located near Tampa, Florida. USF Health announced a partnership with American Well to make Online Care part of its integrated patient-centered healthcare system for The Villages.
"USF Health's mission is to establish a care model that represents the future of health, a university-community partnership with a specific focus on patient-centric and collaborative care," said Stephen Klasko, MD MBA, Chief Executive Officer of USF Health. "We are delivering tomorrow's healthcare today by combining the most innovative EHR and telehealth platforms as a significant step toward ensuring continuity and delivering care directly to the homes of the residents of The Villages."Consumers are used to online voice and video services to communicate with family and friends, paving the way for patients to be comfortable accessing healthcare online. And, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services identified telehealth as one solution for Accountable Care Organizations to improve healthcare outcomes and satisfaction.
