New Consumer Site and Clinical Portal Provide Foundation for Comprehensive eHealth Services
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 its engagement to develop and deploy Sierra View District Hospital’s new consumer website, as well as its clinical portal, as part of the healthcare system’s efforts to enhance quality of care throughout its community.
“We are very excited about our plans to enhance the appearance and functionality of Sierra View’s site, but our real focus is the bigger picture,” said Ramona Contreras, Marketing and Community Relations Director for Sierra View. “We are concentrating on our future and where Sierra View needs to be in five years. The MEDSEEK system will allow us to sync all these components together for an integrated patient and physician experience.”
Sierra View expects to realize a number of benefits from the MEDSEEK consumer website engagement, including the ability to manage content at a departmental level. “By allowing individual departments to maintain and update their own content, we can all save time, provide the freshest possible content, and put the content in the hands of the experts,” said Contreras.
“Sierra View hosts a number of support groups, seminars and other events,” added Contreras. “Our new website will offer online registration and payment options for our patients. It also gives us the opportunity to collect data from our online visitors so that we can provide them with other related information going forward.”
With the addition of MEDSEEK’s clinical portal, Sierra View expects to satisfy physician demand for faster, more efficient access to information. “We hope that our efforts toward a 100-percent electronic clinical experience will help us to enhance both physician satisfaction and recruiting initiatives,” added Contreras.
“MEDSEEK is pleased to be working with Sierra View to help accomplish its goal to improve healthcare through eHealth. Healthcare organizations like Sierra View clearly understand the importance of looking beyond the minimum requirements of Meaningful Use to find a way to achieve the rule’s intent: to provide patients and physicians with meaningful access to healthcare information,” said Peter Kuhn, MEDSEEK CEO. “Our eHealth ecoSystem was created specifically to accomplish that objective.”
