Enterprise adoption ensures improved quality of care and patient experience through more efficient care coordination.
INDIANAPOLIS – Community Health Network announced today the expansion of the Diagnotes’ secure communication platform to their entire organization, which includes more than 250 care locations across Central Indiana. Both organizations are headquartered in Indianapolis. To streamline care coordination across their network, Community users will begin using Diagnotes for secure texting and real-time management and access of provider on-call schedules.
“Patients expect a high degree of care coordination across the continuum,” said Michael Shrift, MD, chief medical information officer and senior vice president for Community Health Network. “Diagnotes allows clinicians throughout Community’s integrated care network to communicate with each other using any device, and identify who is on call for any speciality.”
Community cardiologists were the first to use Diagnotes for more efficient handling of after-hours calls, followed by Community Hospital East’s emergency department for on-call scheduling. The popularity and use of the Diagnotes platform steadily grew to include additional Community emergency departments, prompting Community and Diagnotes to formalize an enterprise-wide agreement.
“We’ve collaborated with Community for several years to develop a clinical communication platform that meets the real-world demands of caring for patients with tools we’re comfortable and familiar using,” said Dave Wortman, founder and chief executive officer of Diagnotes. “We take great pride in this expansion agreement because it demonstrates our ability to listen to our clients and build tools that add value for the enterprise and improve care for patients.
