ORLANDO, Fla. – ColumbiaDoctors will use HealthGrid to allow physicians in the multi-specialty practice to connect with their patients through any mobile device.
“This collaboration with HealthGrid is part of our commitment to deepening the patient-provider connection and serving their diverse needs through thoughtful and proactive engagement,” said Dr. George “Jack” Cioffi, president of ColumbiaDoctors, in a statement.
HealthGrid will enable ColumbiaDoctors’ physicians to connect with their patients to provide actionable care coordination, access to critical health information and to enable self-care management.
