Empowering Healthcare Consumers
“PrimePATIENT is an important step forward in the advancement of consumerism, giving patients a convenient and effective means of involvement and responsibility in the management of their own health,” said Tee Green, president and chief executive officer of Greenway. “Because it provides patients with direct access to their health information and streamlines their communication with physicians, PrimePATIENT also improves provider workflows, cost-efficiency and both patient satisfaction and engagement.”
PrimePATIENT was built on Salesforce.com’s award-winning Force.com cloud platform, benefiting from the technology’s reliability, scalability and performance. “The future of apps in healthcare is all about the connected experience for the patient,” said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president of Global ISV & Channel Alliances at salesforce.com. “Applications such as Greenway’s PrimePATIENT are leveraging the power of the Salesforce Platform to give patients and providers the connected experience they need to improve patient care in this new connected era.”
