NEW YORK, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Hello Health® has launched a new version of its electronic health record (EHR) and patient portal that includes enhanced functionality and additional features for pediatricians. Hello Health Version 6.1 contains more than 90 pre-built sick and well-visit templates, immunization tracking capabilities, growth charts that support national guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other tools and features to meet the specific needs of pediatrics practices.
The Hello Health EHR is available to pediatricians at no-cost, and includes a robust patient portal. Patients pay a small monthly subscription for access to the portal, and the practice keeps a portion of subscription revenue.
“We have found that the Hello Health business model is well suited to pediatric practices, where patient portals are an ideal option for parents seeking additional flexibility and greater convenience for communicating with their child’s doctor, downloading standard forms or getting quick answers about common pediatric conditions,” said Nathanial Findlay, founder and chief executive officer ofMyca® Health, parent company of Hello Health. “Other EHRs may include a portal, but Hello Health is the only company where the portal not only enhances patient care, but also is a revenue source for the practice.”
Pediatrics practices account for nearly 30 percent of Hello Health’s client base, but the additional functionality with the V 6.1 release will support the company’s long-term growth strategy with this specialty segment.
