BOSTON – Hospitals and post-acute care providers throughout Connecticut have partnered with health technology provider PatientPing to better coordinate care of patients. The health systems are using Patient Ping’s real-time platform to connect thousands of providers to improve care outcomes for patients. “This statewide effort is all about improving patient care,” said Jennifer Jackson, CEO of the Connecticut Hospital Association, in a statement. The initiative ensures patient privacy yet gives providers real-time information about where a patient is being treated, and allows providers to see the patient’s full story upon arrival at a healthcare facility, including prior visit history, care instructions from other attributed providers, and any care programs to which the patient belongs. As a patient passes through the health care system, this information is shared in real-time with other members of their care teams across the entire continuum-acute, ambulatory and post-acute facilities. Since adopting the technology in May 2016, PatientPing has partnered with 25 Connecticut hospitals to send more than 455,000 notifications to more than 300 post-acute providers, Accountable Care Organizations and provider organizations across 10 states.
