Allscripts closes acquisition of HealthGrid
Allscripts will integrate the HealthGrid capabilities into its FollowMyHealth platform, enabling provider organizations to reach 100% of their patient populations without requiring their healthcare consumers to sign into a portal. The new functionality will leverage existing patients’ contact information, grow the use of FollowMyHealth, connecting providers with patients, creating opportunities to reach new heights of patient outreach and engagement.
Raj Toleti, CEO, HealthGrid says, “We are excited about this new chapter in our pursuit of bringing leading patient engagement technologies to market. Unparalleled solutions that improve the patient-provider relationship for our customers remains our highest priority.”
“The growing adoption of value-based care combined with only relatively modest patient portal adoption across the industry has prompted healthcare providers to seek more effective approaches to patient engagement solutions,” said Allscripts Chief Executive Officer,
