Alegent Creighton Health Adopts InteliChart's Patient Portal
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
LLC, is pleased to announce the successful rollout of the
InteliChart patient portal at Alegent
Creighton Health of Omaha, Neb. Following a pilot phase involving 7
providers at 1 practice, Alegent Creighton Health deployed the portal to
an additional 221 providers located at 44 different practices. Key
functionality immediately utilized by patients includes secure
messaging, scheduling, prescription requests and alerts. Since the
InteliChart patient portal embeds a personal
health record, providers are also able to share clinical results and
documentation with patients upon request or demand.
"Patient-friendly solutions allow our patients to easily register and
immediately begin engaging in their care process," said Jim Burgart,
Alegent Creighton Health Operations Leader for Information Systems.
"Patient engagement is the foundation for success with many of our
health system initiatives."
"We know that patients who use our portal are not only engaged in
managing their own care, they are also loyal to their practtioners,"
said Gary Hamilton, President of InteliChart. "The portal makes it easy
for practitioners and patients to overcome traditional communication
barriers and become more closely connected. We're delighted to be
working with Alegent Creighton Health to bring the portal to their
providers and patients."
Alegent Creighton Health conducted a year-long search for a patient
portal with the expectation that it could meet both its strategic and
functionality goals. This included Alegent Creighton Health's objective
to continuously enhance the care experience for patients and families
through technology that provides value to the patient without additional
cost, and continues to improve the quality of care delivered.
