Orlando, Fla., April 23rd, 2012 — PatientPoint®, a leading provider of
care coordination and patient care management solutions, today announced that it has been selected by
Miami Children's Hospital to provide consulting services and to implement its patented HealthSync
Care Coordination Platform.
Miami Children's Hospital is a world leader in healthcare with over 650 physicians providing comprehensive
services in over 40 pediatric specialties and sub-specialties. “We signed with PatientPoint® in February
and went live within 6 weeks with over 40 check-in points across the hospital and with complete integration
to our new ADT systems. Based on the iOS platform, HealthSync offers best-in-class patient tracking,
patient care coordination and a complete set of mobile applications for patient engagement. We believe
it will provide a highly effective, end to end, enterprise-level solution for care coordination and
patient engagement during pre-care, point of care and post care”, said Ed Martinez, CIO of Miami Children's.
PatientPoint® will deploy the HealthSync Care Coordination Platform to the Miami Children's physician network
across multiple care settings. Data will be aggregated from Electronic Health Record registries, Pharmacy
Benefits Managers, and patient self-reported information to identify and resolve clinical care gaps.
Various patient engagement technologies, including wellness digital gaming and mobile and online
applications will be leveraged for pre-and post-care reminders and to ensure medication and treatment
adherence. In addition, tablet based check-in and check-out solutions will be used to simplify
administrative processes, address medication and clinical gaps in care, and facilitate clinical
surveys and screenings like ADHD. By providing the most relevant clinical intelligence at the right time,
Miami Children's will be able to better align physicians and care teams with their patients, resulting in
higher quality of care at significantly lower costs.
“When we first met with the leadership at Miami Children's Hospital and heard their vision of coordinated,
patient-centered care, we felt that there were many synergies between our organizations and a great
opportunity to partner and bring to market a patient engagement platform second to none.” said Raj
Toleti, CEO of PatientPoint®. “We are truly fortunate to be partnering with this prestigious organization
and committed to ensuring they are successful in achieving their strategic objectives.”
