Pulse Systems, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management (PM) and Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) solutions, announced today it has selected InteliChart, a leading provider of patient engagement and outcomes technology, as their new patient engagement solution, enabling Pulse clients to increase revenue while also improving engagement among patients.
Pulse leverages InteliChart’s application programming interface (API) to seamlessly integrate the InteliChart Patient Portal with PulseCloud EHR. As a result of this strategic partnership, medical practices using PulseCloud EHR can offer patients access to InteliChart’s Patient Portal. The new patient portal helps PulseCloud EHR clients increase revenue and enables their patients to engage in their own care.
“We are confident our clients’ patients will enjoy using the new InteliChart Patient Portal offered by Pulse,” said Chris Walls, president and CEO of Pulse. “This easy-to-use online portal gives patients quick access to their healthcare information and allows them to feel empowered and ask questions. The patient portal makes scheduling and communicating with patients faster and more effective, streamlining daily operations at physician practices. PulseCloud EHR clients can also benefit from an increase in revenue as their patients are encouraged to make payments online in a quick and secure way.”
InteliChart’s Patient Portal provides patients with safe, secure 24/7 access to their health information via the Internet. It allows patients to view their health records, including lab and diagnostic test results, educational material, discharge instructions and other health information. This direct line of communication with providers gives patients the opportunity to manage their health more effectively. The InteliChart Patient Portal also assists physician practices to fulfill Meaningful Use requirements.
“We are excited about this opportunity to partner with Pulse and bring our patient engagement platform to PulseCloud EHR users,” said Gary Hamilton, CEO of InteliChart. “Establishing this partnership further expands our ability to help hospitals and healthcare organizations increase their engagement with patients through the InteliChart Patient Portal.”
