Family Medicine Education Consortium, Inc. Endorses PatientCarenet.Org
Date:10/29/2009

Offers Physicians Peer Networking, Patient Record Sharing, and Secure Messaging to Facilitate Instant Collaborative Patient Care Among Physicians

DAYTON, Ohio, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Family Medicine Education Consortium, Inc. (FMEC) and Human Science, Inc. (HSI) announce an effort to create virtual teams that connect primary care physicians with the sub-specialist physicians with whom they share the care of patients, improving the quality and safety of care while reducing costs and frustration. As a result of this relationship, FMEC has endorsed and its members utilize PatientCarenet.Org, an Internet-based inter-physician communication platform that allows physicians to securely and directly connect in virtual teams where primary care physicians and sub-specialist physicians with whom they share the care of patients can share information quickly and efficiently. HSI will present information on the PatientCarenet.Org during the Innovator's Network Workshop Oct 30, 2009 at its annual conference in New York.

PatientCarenet.org allows physicians to engage in immediate and secure dialogue with colleagues through threaded messages, virtual conferences, and discussion boards. This new health care technology tool improves the quality of health care and patient safety, while increasing the efficiency of a doctor's practice. It reduces peer-physician communication challenges enabling real-time, direct doctor-to-doctor communication -- enhancing professional relationships, freeing up doctor's times and improving care and inter-physician relationships which ultimately leads to the improved treatment of patients and fosters collaboration and practice growth.

"Currently, HSI is the only company that has developed and tested a tool that supports physician collaboration," said Steven M. Schwartz, MD, FAAFP, Associate Dean for Informatics, Associate Professor, Family Medicine Georgetown University School of Medicine and member of the Family Medicine Education Consortium. "PatientCarenet.org overcomes the realities of our disconnected practices and changes the way we practice, meaning less hassle to deliver the highest quality care to our patients," he added.

"We know that Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) promise to deliver these results, but we have yet to find an EMR that provides the capabilities and efficiencies that match this service," said Y.K. Son, Founder of HSI. "Today, most medicine is practiced outside of the hospital, often in small office practices. In fact, nearly 80% of physicians provide care in practices with fewer than 5 in-house physicians. This creates a "silo effect" -- small systems that cannot exchange information with each other incapable of reciprocal communication. Current means of information transfer include phone, e-mail, and written reports which are cumbersome and inefficient. Callers waste time navigating answering services, secretarial staff, and endless 'on-hold' times. On the receiving end, such items interrupt patient visits, workflow and physician concentration, and extend patient wait times. E-mail has not been adopted by many physicians mainly to security and privacy concerns, costs of implementation, workflow changes, and potential incompatibilities with patient records. Written documents, such as discharge summaries, are often lengthy, and may miss critical information. Many communications vehicles offer no easy way to respond or clarify issues. Our system was designed to meet these needs and provide physicians with a secure, multi-directional communications vehicle for the health care professional to exchange key patient information."

In addition to being endorsed by the Family Medicine Education Consortium, HSI has also been selected to present on October 30, 2009 at its annual conference at the Hilton Rye Town Hotel in Rye Brook, New York. The conference hosts workshops and seminars of current interests in family medicine. HSI will present PatientCarenet.Org at the Innovator's Network Workshop, moderated by William Terry Kane, MD.

About PatientCarenet.Org

To improve relationships with colleagues and collaborate among peers, physicians need a system in which key information (consult request, status report and test results) is transmitted, and received, allowing for multi-directional exchange. To meet the challenges of collaboration, HSI has developed PatientCarenet.Org, Internet-based software that offers a comprehensive solution to the problems of physician networking, patient record sharing and secure messaging.

Within PatientCarenet.Org, virtual collaboration teams may be built amongst primary care physicians and the sub-specialists to whom they refer patients. Physicians can quickly dialogue with structured messages that ensure a complete circle of communication. This collaborative ability results in better care of your patients and less stress and confusion for the physicians involved. PatientCarenet.Org (a web software) and Physicians' Digital Messenger (a Windows software) provide you and your network of colleagues the following communication solutions: build your own virtual team with whom you refer and share patients; quickly dialogue with structured messages that ensure a complete circle of communication between the primary care and sub-specialist physicians; coordinate complex care plans through the patient conference board.
