HIMSS15 Trade Show Vendor Highlight: PatientKeeper
In this series, we are featuring some of the thousands of vendors who will be participating in the HIMSS15 conference and trade show. Through it, we hope to offer readers a closer look at some of the solution providers who will either be in attendance – with a booth showcasing and displaying key products and offerings – or that will have a presence of some kind at the show – key executives in attendance or presenting, for example.
Hopefully this series will give you a bit more useful information about the companies that help make this event, and the industry as a whole, so exciting.
PatientKeeper provides workflow applications for physicians that transform hospital EHRs from what they typically are – a distraction or hindrance topatient care – into what they should be: an intuitive support system for physicians.
PatientKeeper, Inc. is a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians. PatientKeeper’s highly intuitive software streamlines physician workflow to improve productivity and patient care. PatientKeeper’s CPOE, physician documentation, electronic charge capture and other applications run on desktop and laptop computers and popular handheld devices and tablets. PatientKeeper’s software integrates with many existing healthcare information systems to help provider organizations drive physician adoption of technology, meet Meaningful Use, and transition to ICD-10. More than 60,000 physicians across North America and the UK use PatientKeeper software.
PatientKeeper plays in two different market segments: (1) EHR optimization, and (2) revenue cycle optimization. In the former, we target 100+ bed community hospitals and hospital networks that rely primarily on affiliated physicians (vs. employed physicians) for patient admissions – clinicians whose loyalty (and business) must be “courted” and competed for – and which have not deployed or committed to an Epic EMR system. In the “Revenue Cycle Optimization” side of our business, we target physician practices of 25 doctors or more (but typically larger academic medical groups), and hospitals with a significant corps of employed physicians.
