Navio Health, LLC today announcesPractice Unite, the first customizable, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant smartphone application designed to improve hospital-physician alignment and deliver the right message, in the right format, at the right time, to the right physician.
As today’s healthcare environment becomes more complex, and the demands for higher quality at lower cost increase, it is more important than ever to create an aligned and efficient hospital workforce. Poor communications, especially with the medical staff, is the major obstacle to achieving this. “Improving communication between hospitals and doctors, and having secure, timely communications among physicians, are two of the most critical issues in U.S. healthcare today,” said Joseph Scott, president and chief executive officer of Liberty Health.
According to Dr. Stuart Hochron, chief medical officer at Navio Health, “The increasing demands on physicians’ time, and the move away from hospital-based practice, makes it harder for physicians to find and communicate with consultants and colleagues. Hospital CEOs also tell us that they find it impossible to get the right message through to their medical staff. Practice Unite solves both problems by making it easier for physicians to find and communicate with each other and by creating a more effective channel for hospital physician communication.”
In designing Practice Unite, the team at Navio Health have combined deep expertise in digital communications with twenty five years of practicing medicine to create a tool that is both addictively useful to physicians and creates a bridge to he hospital administration.
Practice Unite improves hospital-physician communications in three ways:
Over 800 doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners and other members of Liberty Health’s Jersey City Medical Center staff can now use Practice Unite’s encrypted app to communicate with each other. With Practice Unite, the hospital has a unique channel to reach its staff using a device that everyone has with them at all times – the smartphone.
“Our hospital staff, and medical staff at large, has been rapidly downloading and using the Practice Unite app.” added Scott. “The doctors love being able to find and communicate with each other, and I have a direct line to the medical staff. We are already seeing a positive return on investment and we are excited about the relationship-building potential of the app.”
