The U.S. healthcare system does not make it easy for providers to coordinate with one another. A combination of poorly designed financial incentives and disconnected information systems often leaves care teams in the dark when it comes to their patients' past medical encounters. PatientPing is looking to tackle this problem with its national care coordination network which includes physicians, nurses, case managers, and care coordinators across hospitals, emergency departments, accountable care organizations (ACOs), physician practices, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, inpatient rehabilitation centers, and payers. The system delivers real-time clinical notifications, called "Pings," whenever and wherever some provider's patient receives care. In other words, the company is looking to connect providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care. PatientPing believes this could improve care quality, lower costs, and enable safer, more seamless care transitions. Its users include case managers from across the spectrum, as well as skilled nursing directors, home health administrators, bundled payment nurses, and many others. With PatientPing's insights, they could proactively act to improve outcomes.
