Leading New Jersey ACO to Discuss Improving Care Coordination with Imprivata Cortext during mHealth Summit
Thomas Kloos, MD will Highlight the Strategic Use of Imprivata Cortext to Increase Efficiency and Coordinate Care across the Optimus and Atlantic Health System ACOs
Lexington, Mass.—December 1, 2014—Imprivata®, (NYSE: IMPR), a leading provider of authentication, access management and secure communications solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that Dr. Thomas Kloos, Director of the Atlantic MSO, which provides services to the Atlantic ACO and Optimus Healthcare Partners, will discuss use of Imprivata Cortext®, the secure communications platform for healthcare, during the mHealth Summit. Titled “Coordinating Care with mHealth” (session M130PC), the panel will focus on the use of Imprivata Cortext to improve clinical communications, reduce unnecessary patient readmissions and increase clinical integration within the Optimus and Atlantic Health System ACOs.
“We initially deployed Imprivata Cortext to give our care providers a more efficient, secure communication tool, but we quickly realized that we had a powerful care coordination solution,” said Dr. Kloos. “Imprivata Cortext improves our care team approach within our ACO and helps us take a more patient-centric approach by allowing our providers to quickly identify and communicate with the correct specialist within the ACO. We are also seeing improvement in communications efficiency through reduction in physician response time. These are just some of the many benefits we get from Imprivata Cortext, and I encourage mHealth Summit attendees to learn more about how Imprivata Cortext helps improve the efficiency of healthcare delivery throughout Atlantic Health System.”
Imprivata Cortext enables HIPAA-verified mobile and desktop messaging across care teams and multiple healthcare organizations, and also supports native platforms for iPhones, iPads, Android-based devices and desktops. When a patient presents at the hospital, the emergency room physician can now quickly communicate with the primary care physician or home health agency to determine the best care plan and whether the patient should be admitted. Imprivata Cortext also improves the efficiency of pharmacy workflows at Atlantic Health System by allowing pharmacists to send fast, secure messaging to contact physicians with questions about medication orders instead of using pagers.
