Healthcare Information and Management System Society (HIMSS) defines patient engagement as “Providers and patients working together to improve health.” Patient engagement has been one of the hottest healthcare IT topics for the past three years and will mark the headlines next week at HIMSS19. Regarding the topic, HIMSS added: “A patient’s greater engagement in healthcare contributes to improved health outcomes, and information technologies can support engagement.”
We believe those who are engaged as decision-makers in their care tend to be healthier and have better outcomes. That’s why we created AdvancedMD patient engagement technologies to work in unison with our EHR and practice management. Bundled into a unified suite, our platform is called Rhythm. Rhythm enables you to offer all the latest patient engagement tools in a single, full-office and integrated bundle that is easy for you and easy for patients.
And we also believe engaging patients should not cost you an arm and a leg. Most technology companies charge per encounter, meaning you are forced to pay per booking. With AdvancedMD, all you pay is a fixed and predictable monthly subscription for our entire Rhythm platform. We also offer custom packages with bundle discounts.
