NexJ and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to Digitize Passport to Trust Program
Apr 16, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
NexJ Systems, a provider of next generation enterprise customer relationship management solutions, announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Harvard Medical School affiliate, to digitize the Passport to Trust program.
In a release, the Company noted that the Passport to Trust program provides a blueprint for care for each patient and will become available through NexJ's Connected Wellness Platform as an online medical dashboard.
The Company said the approach will:
-Create two-way communications between patients and physicians
-Implement an interactive, step-by-step care plan
-Educate physicians and patients in real time
The program can be accessed by members of an individual's healthcare team.
The Passport to Trust program was developed under Steven Freedman.
"As doctors, we face many time constraints that often result in one-way communications with patients. This tool will transform the doctor-patient relationship, the focal point at which quality care, costs, health literacy and satisfaction intersect," said Freedman. "The Trust Passport creates a comprehensive care plan of action, listing potential diagnoses, how tests or treatments will change management and a step-by-step treatment plan. For the first time, we can standardize how healthcare is practiced and effectively and efficiently manage an individual's health through a true partnership between doctor and patient. And we can help advance real healthcare reform."
Camilia Martin, a member of the Passport to Trust team who developed the initial electronic prototype of the Trust Passport said: "Online accessibility to the Passport to Trust Program offers the unique ability for providers and patients to iteratively track follow-up interactions independent of proprietary EMR systems, ensuring quality care with greater efficiencies."
"Using NexJ Health Coach doctors and patients will be able to initiate a Trust Passport during or prior to a visit and update it with information about their conditions, including possible causes, tests and treatments and all of this will be available to them online," said Eric Gombrich, SVP and GM, Health Solutions Group, NexJ Systems. "NexJ is excited to be working with Dr. Freedman and his team on this project, as it exemplifies how patient-centered health care can improve the quality, safety, and cost of care, and enable patients to take charge of their own health and wellness."
