March 10, 2016 — Paxeramed Corp. has announced the release of version 2.0 of its patient engagement app CarePassport. The company highlighted the major update at the 2016 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibition, Feb. 29–March 3 in Las Vegas.

CarePassport, a next-generation patient engagement app, provides patients with a single-point to aggregate, store, share and manage their health data. The solution is now available for download in the App Store and on Google Play for both Apple and Android devices at no cost to consumers.

Only about 20 percent of U.S. adults currently have access to their medical records online, and 41 percent of U.S. consumers would be willing to switch doctors to gain online access to their own electronic medical records. A robust, one-point patient app is necessary to enable patients to have easy access to their health information and better support patients throughout their medical journey,

CarePassport is designed to engage users to take a more active role in their care and significantly improves patient satisfaction, outcomes and health service efficiency. The universal patient engagement app enables users to view their care team’s contact info, communicate with them via secure messaging, and request, change or cancel appointments. Patients can also view their medical images, lab and clinical reports, and share healthcare information securely with their healthcare providers.

The latest version further simplifies the patient experience by allowing users to complete and submit registration forms before arriving to the healthcare facility. Patients may view the facility location using Google Maps and request an Uber from within the app. Upon arrival to the facility, patients will be able to check-in from the app interface using a QR code, which will significantly streamline the check-in process and enhance the patient experience.

Healthcare providers’ version of the app, CarePassport-MD, allows caregivers to build quality relationships with patients and increases revenue through fostering patient retention and loyalty. CarePassport-MD features a dashboard that indexes the data content to be easily searched and mined. The advanced dashboard facilitates tracking of the vast amounts of intra-operative data and correlating that data with patients' outcomes. This allows healthcare providers to analyze patients' data, set medical and follow-up notifications, enable patient behavioral detection, and monitor patient risk categories, thus improving treatment.

CarePassport's back-end is designed to run as a stand-alone solution or seamlessly integrates with existing electronic medical record (EMR) systems to help streamline administrative routine tasks including scheduling appointments, registration and patient reminders.
