MEDSEEK Launches Sprint to Meaningful UseTM Solution to Help Healthcare Organizations Quickly Achieve Stage 1 Requir

Rapid Deployment, Scalability and Enhanced Patient Experience Are Key to New Package

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MEDSEEK, the leading provider of enterprise eHealth solutions that give patients, clinicians and administrative staff an optimal 360-degree online experience, today announced the introduction of its Sprint to Meaningful UseTM solution, specifically designed to help healthcare organizations quickly achieve the objectives of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act).

“MEDSEEK recognizes the challenges that many healthcare organizations face in meeting Stage 1 requirements,” said Peter Kühn, MEDSEEK’s CEO. “The ability to quickly deploy this solution and leverage it to achieve other objectives – increasing revenues, establishing significant competitive differentiation, truly engaging patients in their own health care – is the real key to our Sprint to Meaningful Use solution.”

The Sprint to Meaningful Use solution is a streamlined version of the company’s 360-degree patient experience that facilitates several Meaningful Use goals around engaging patients and families, including both Stage 1 objectives as well as those anticipated in Stage 2. MEDSEEK’s extensive experience integrating back-end clinical systems provides the proven framework to share test results and health information. The solution facilitates secure online communication between patients and physicians, and the robust online health and medical record can be auto-populated by back-end systems or manually update by patients and physicians.

The abbreviated solution can be expanded at the time of installation or at a later date, making the package both scalable and configurable. “The Sprint to Meaningful Use solution is meant to grow with the healthcare organization, allowing them to keep pace with available resources and match their strategic priorities,” said Kühn.

“Based on the recent HealthLeaders’ survey, 93% of healthcare executives agree that the patient experience is among their top five priorities, but we believe that experience must extend beyond the four walls of the hospital, beyond construction and renovations,” added Kühn. “Patients want – and demand – an experience that meets expectations set by other industries, and that means access to their physicians and their own information. MEDSEEK’s goal is to help healthcare organizations improve patient satisfaction and achieve Meaningful Use goals with the same IT investment.” HealthLeaders Media Intelligence published its annual survey, “Patient Experience: Help Wanted,” in October 2010.
