CINCINNATI, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PatientPoint® today announced its membership in National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) to drive national awareness and adoption of patient engagement strategies. PatientPoint is the leader and innovator in patient engagement solutions including a care coordination platform, patient education programs and tools to support and facilitate patient-provider communication.

PatientPoint joins an esteemed group of healthcare stakeholders and a growing number of NeHC members working to support and accelerate the use of health IT for the advancement of health and improved patient care. Secure and reliable electronic information exchange and direct engagement with consumers are two of the most transformational strategies in healthcare today, shown repeatedly to improve quality, enhance patient satisfaction and improve efficiency.  NeHC and members such as PatientPoint focus attention in these high priority areas.

NeHC CEO Kate Berry said, "We are very excited to welcome PatientPoint as an NeHC member.  PatientPoint will be a valuable collaborator on patient-centered technology solutions and will help to fuel the growth in deployment of forward-thinking consumer strategies."

With the rapid growth and progression of meaningful use and new accountable care initiatives, how physicians connect, communicate and empower their patients to take a more active role in their care is quickly becoming a significant driver of successful care coordination and patient navigation. NeHC's Patient Engagement Framework outlines a model for healthcare organizations seeking to use eHealth tools and resources to improve communication and coordination with their patients. The NeHC Consumer eHealth Readiness Tool (CeRT) provides the hands-on support needed for organizations to quantify and focus their improvement efforts and measure their progress toward consumer engagement in eHealth.

PatientPoint is an excellent example of the strategies suggested in the Patient Engagement Framework. PatientPoint solutions provide a comprehensive care coordination and patient engagement platform aimed to improve the physician-patient partnership, improve clinical outcomes and reduce the cost of care.
