Patient Engagement Systems
Patient Engagement Systems (PES) delivers platform technology solutions that enhance communication between providers and patients. This solution improves coordination, compliance and the overall management of chronic conditions by supporting physician decision making with enhanced clinical information, and engaging patients through clear, concise, pertinent care information that activates desired behaviors. Patient Engagement Systems was founded on the now proven theory that timely, effective communications between provider and patient are critical to improving adherence to chronic care regimens, and ultimately reducing emergency room and inpatient utilization. PES understands that medical groups and health systems are increasingly at risk for excessive and redundant costs that can occur when chronic patients do not get timely, routine treatment. When you consider these risk costs along with available P4P or shared savings payments, the PES platform presents a strong business proposition for organizations that are involved in developing ACOs, PCMH projects, or extending primary care networks.
