Greenway Medical Technologies' PrimePatient Solution Transforms Physician/Patient Relationship Through Enhanced Communication Channels and Improved Workflows
Date:5/27/2009

CARROLLTON, Ga., May 27 /PRNewswire/ --

Core News Facts:

  • Increased waiting room times and inability to interact with care providers online are leading causes of patient dissatisfaction
  • Patients are taking a consumerist approach in choosing providers that can make their visits as efficient as possible
  • More than $31 billion of direct adoption incentives are available through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for "meaningful use" of certified EHRs, which will include functionality that enhances the physician/patient relationship
  • PrimePatient improves patient/caregiver interaction, enabling patients to request appointments, view lab results, interact with caregivers and request prescription refills via a secure online channel

Greenway Medical Technologies' state-of-the-art patient portal, PrimePatient(R), is revolutionizing the way care providers and physicians interact with patients to manage a variety of tasks.

PrimePatient is the integrated patient portal solution of Greenway's complete physician's infrastructure that includes the electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution, PrimeSuite(R).

A Wall Street Journal/Harris Interactive Poll conducted online between November 12 - 14, 2007 revealed that 63 percent of U.S. adults agreed that the electronic sharing of medical records could decrease medical errors. Another 55 percent agree that this would reduce healthcare costs. Three-quarters of the 2,153 adults polled agree that patients could receive better care if physicians and researchers were able to share information more easily via electronic systems.

With PrimePatient, patients are able to request appointments online, complete registration and health history forms in advance, view lab results, interact directly with their care providers, request prescription refills and manage their personal health record (PHR) all through a secure patient portal.

From a physician and practice management workflow standpoint, PrimePatient helps reduce front-end disruptions and wait times by taking online the process of registration, insurance verification and form/medical history completion; all which are notorious for bogging down front office workflow. By electronifying the process, practices experience reductions in telephone calls, as well as decreases in printing and postage costs. The streamlined and interactive workflow also helps improve patient satisfaction as they spend less time in the waiting room and are able to play a larger role in managing their healthcare through improved contact with caregivers.

PrimePatient, powered by Medfusion, which provides easy-access communication solutions for medical practices including secure patient self-service portals and Web site development, integrates into PrimeSuite so that patient information automatically transmits from the patient portal and populates the patient's health record. Physicians can securely communicate with patients and inform them of test results and other health-related notices. If a patient needs to refill a prescription he/she can simply make the request electronically and the practice can electronically place the order.

"With PrimePatient integrated into PrimeSuite, we are able to quickly process prescription refills and communicate with our patients in a secure electronic environment," said Dr. Mark Ebert of the Stillwater Women's Clinic of Stillwater, Oklahoma. "More and more of our patients are choosing to use our patient portal and prefer the electronic option to communicate their needs instead of the phone. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We are very happy we chose to go with PrimePatient."

"Practices that utilize PrimePatient as part of their HIT infrastructure are providing an invaluable service that not only enhances the way they are able to manage patient workflow but can also enhance the overall level of patient satisfaction," said Scott Fannin, vice president of on demand services at Greenway Medical Technologies. "As health IT becomes a focal point in our nation's healthcare transformation and practices begin to adopt EHRs at the point-of-care, it is the integrated solutions such as PrimePatient that will empower practices to embrace the consumerism trend and truly become pioneers and healthcare leaders in their communities."
