The integration with DrChrono allows the scores, answers and data on confounding factors to be automatically pushed from the patient’s device into the clinician’s EHR medical note
DrChrono, the company enabling the medical practice of the future, and OutcomeMD, a company revolutionizing medical outcome tracking, today announced its partnership that gives practices using DrChrono’s EHR the seamless ability to incorporate patient reported outcomes into their clinical flow.
OutcomeMD is a software solution that uses literature validated patient reported outcome instruments to score and track a patient’s symptom severity and inform treatment decisions. The platform’s outcome collection process uniquely enhances both the doctor and patient experiences and unifies them as a team. As care progresses, patients remotely track how their symptoms change, and notifications alert clinicians or care managers of patients who may need attention. The integration with DrChrono allows the scores, answers and data on confounding factors to be automatically pushed from the patient’s device into the clinician’s EHR medical note, which strengthens documentation and saves time for both patients and clinicians. Since the data is generated with the same instruments used in the medical literature, the data is scientific, and can be used to easily generate powerful studies. OutcomeMD on DrChrono’s EHR supports 20 medical specialties from cardiology to orthopedics.
“OutcomeMD’s fitness-tracker-like experience for the patient integrated with DrChrono’s flexible EHR platform is disrupting digital health for physicians and patients by delivering transparency, shared decision-making, best practices and evidence-based medicine in one easy to use solution,” said Dr. Justin Saliman, Founder and CEO of OutcomeMD. “The patient reported outcomes and confounding factors, combined with DrChrono’s EHR data, empowers clinicians and administrators with a real-world tool for predictive analytics across all medical conditions. This technology combination enhances both the doctor and patient experience in ways never before possible and enables the delivery of true Value Based Care.”
“We are thrilled that OutcomeMD selected DrChrono as its only EHR partner,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono. “OutcomeMD is a perfect example of an innovative digital health startup that built on our API. Dr. Saliman and his team produced an intuitive patient and physician friendly app to better track and analyze patient outcomes while putting that data to work in our EHR.”
