PatientPoint, as it is today, was created in February 2012 when Healthy Advice Networks, a Cincinnati-based company, acquired PatientPoint, an Orlando-based company. In September 2012, the new combined company took the name of PatientPoint because the name best reflected our mission of centering our product portfolio on the patient. The combined product portfolio of the new company offers an unparalleled ability to drive continuous patient and physician engagement along the entire continuum of care—pre-visit, at the point of care, and post-visit.
For more than 25 years, Healthy Advice Networks had led the point-of-care market as an innovator and leading provider of award-winning health information and patient-physician engagement programs. Healthy Advice Networks offered programs in the physician waiting rooms, exam rooms, and practice clinical areas, as well as in hospital settings. Today 61,000 primary care and specialty physicians have chosen PatientPoint programs for their practices. These offices represent over 456 million patient and caregiver visits annually. More than 550 hospitals across the U.S. have also chosen PatientPoint programs.
Before being acquired by Healthy Advice Networks, PatientPoint provided solutions that enhance patient engagement, care coordination and end-to-end billing, enabling healthcare providers to optimize management of clinical processes. The company also offers solutions to health plans and pharmaceutical companies to better connect them with their patients and providers.
Together PatientPoint and Healthy Advice Networks offer a full suite of digital, targeted products for continuous patient engagement to drive adherence, enhance patient satisfaction, reduce costs and improve outcomes. The new PatientPoint truly turns engagement into outcomes.
