Health system simplifies process for medical providers to leverage its digital health portfolio, elevating the patient experience
Xealth, the leader in enabling digital health at scale, today announced that Montage Health, a nonprofit family of organizations across Monterey County, Calif., is using Xealth’s digital health platform system-wide to power its digital strategy across several clinical lines. Centralizing tools, leveraging automation, and integration into care team workflows will enable faster and easier distribution of mobile apps, patient education and additional resources to promote greater wellbeing.
Digital health programs, including remote patient monitoring (RPM), help fill a necessary role in extending care options for patients, and making them simple to find and bring into treatment plans is essential for success. Centralizing these resources and integrating with Montage Health’s electronic health record (EHR) system, Xealth supports care teams by automating distribution to help elevate the patient care experience. Hospitals and providers also gain insight into how each tool is performing with patients.
“Montage Health works across our communities to keep people healthy and connected,” said Jill Reyes Tiongco, MD, FAMIA, chief medical information officer at Montage Health. “We currently have several digital programs that support our patients between visits. Xealth brings them all together across our system, increasing efficiencies by our clinical staff and enhancing the patient experience.”
Beginning with digital health programs that support orthopedics, behavioral health, patient education and consumer wellness, Montage Health care teams will benefit from the centralized, digital approach, that will reduce the time-consuming task of finding the right information for patients at the right time and improve its ability to measure program impact.
“Patients have been seeking more flexibility and health systems are under pressure to expand care teams without placing additional burdens on clinical staff,” said Mike McSherry, CEO and co-founder of Xealth. “Digital health offers this simplicity without requiring significant resources. Xealth helps reduce steps for the provider, freeing them to do what they do best – care for their patients. We are thrilled to work with Montage Health, making it easier to leverage digital resources, and deepening the connection between patients and care teams.”
Xealth makes it easier for medical providers to order and monitor digital health solutions by integrating custom content management systems, third-party education and digital health vendors with the customer’s EHR system and patient portal.
