Grand Round Table Partners with athenahealth’s ‘More Disruption Please’ Program to Simplify Patient Huddle Preparation for Patient Centered Medical Homes
Application Saves Time and Helps Providers Achieve PCMH Compliance
Philadelphia, PA – June 21, 2016 – Grand Round Table (GRT), a provider of clinical decision support solutions, today announced a partnership with athenahealth, Inc. through athenahealth’s ‘More Disruption Please’ (MDP) program. The company’s Clinical Assistant is now available as part of athenahealth® Marketplace offerings. This newly integrated application offers athenahealth’s growing network of more than 78,000 healthcare providers the ability to conduct more efficient patient huddles to better prepare care teams for the day ahead and meet value-based care objectives for Patient Centered Medical Homes.
“Clinical Assistant delivers a valuable service for primary care providers and their care teams,” said Eric King, co-founder and CEO of Grand Round Table. “We are very excited to be part of athenahealth’s Marketplace because it is empowering healthcare professionals to adopt new best practice solutions faster than ever before. Greater than 80% of primary care providers and their staff report that patient huddles improve communication, patient safety, and continuity of care. By facilitating these huddles, the Clinical Assistant is saving the care team 20-30 minutes a day by reducing paperwork and helping keep high-risk patients out of the hospital during patient visits. During the pilot phase, the response from athenahealth providers was tremendously positive and we look forward to replicating this success throughout the athenahealth network.”
athenahealth is a network-enabled services company with a vision to build a national health information backbone to help make healthcare work as it should. As an MDP partner, GRT joins a network of like-minded healthcare professionals who are looking to disrupt established approaches in healthcare that simply aren’t working, aren’t good enough, or aren’t advancing the industry and help providers thrive in the face of industry change.
