Primary Care Practices in 5 States Select the Hello Health Platform Over Traditional Electronic Health Records
NEW YORK, Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Myca Health Inc. announced today that in the past month primary care practices serving over 10,000 patients have contracted to implement the Hello Health® Patient Management platform. The company recently signed agreements with family practice, internal medicine, pediatric and integrative medicine practices in five states. Hello Health is a free Patient Management platform integrating an electronic health record, an online patient health portal and a suite of secure, web-based communication tools designed to connect patients with their health information and their physician. Primary care physicians generate incremental income from the platform through Hello Health's revenue-sharing patient subscription model.
"We are very pleased to welcome more primary care practices to the Hello Health community," said Nat Findlay, CEO and founder of Myca Health. "Our message to overworked and financially-challenged practices that they do not have to settle for a traditional electronic health record, even if it is free, is resonating. Hello Health is unique in today's market not only for its ability to add much needed revenue to a practice but by building a cloud-based platform that engages patients with their health information and their care team."
"The promise of a free EMR first got our attention," said Mike Segarra MD, a partner in North Brunswick Pediatrics, a four-doctor pediatric practice in New Jersey. "And as we reviewed the Hello Health platform in depth we recognized the potential to bring a new level of convenience and access to our patients. We look forward to offering online scheduling, prescription renewals, lab requests and even virtual visits to our practice. That we can generate incremental revenue as we enhance the service we provide our patients and their families while reducing the workload on our staff is truly remarkable."
Hello Health includes training, implementation and patient communications as part of its no-cost business model for established primary care practices. Practices generate income through revenue sharing of the patient subscription dues and online consultations including video visits billed directly to patients.
Recently Myca Health released version 5.0 of the Hello Health platform which is Surescripts® certified for prescription routing. Additional features improve task management, claims and billing and document management leveraging the breadth of the Hello Health platform as the operating system of today's family practice, internal medicine or pediatric office.
