Get Real Health’s InstantPHR® helps providers to enhance patient engagement and meet secure messaging requirements. In the accompanying video, Brandon Neiswender, senior director of health information exchange at St. Luke’s University Health Network, says meeting Meaningful Use requirements is like the “first step on a long ladder to population health and wellness,” and explains how the patient engagement platform is enriching the experience of St. Luke’s patients.
St. Luke’s uses InstantPHR in both its in-patient hospitals and its umbilical cord clinic. The platform also provides access to marketing materials, state-of-the-art software and a patient service/advice desk for community healthcare providers that aren’t owned by St. Luke’s.
Allowing patients to access and review their health information helps get them interested in managing their own health, which in turn will lead to a collectively healthier population. InstantPHR opens channels of communication between patients and hospitals, and builds a rapport that bridges the gap between healthcare providers and the community.
