San Diego, CA / Baltimore, MD – September 5, 2013 – HealthCare Anytime, a leading provider of enterprise patient portal technology, announced today that it has signed a contract with Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH) in Baltimore, Maryland, to include its entire Enterprise Patient Portal Suite. The full suite will provide patients and their authorized representatives with complete, interactive online access to their health information through a single view portal, and offers such features as secure messaging, online pre-registration, appointment requests, prescription renewals and online bill paying capabilities.
MWPH was founded in 1922 as a convalescent home for children and grew into a 102-bed children’s hospital now affiliated with Johns Hopkins Medicine and University of Maryland Medical Center. It is a comprehensive sub-acute care facility for children from birth to young adult and provides transitional and support care for a variety of conditions, including premature birth, serious and chronic illness, traumatic injury, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, childhood obesity, diabetes, feeding problems, among others.
“We are very happy to provide Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital with the system it needs to engage patients and families in their healthcare through a comprehensive online experience,” said Brady Klick, HealthCare Anytime chief executive officer. “Our Enterprise Patient Portal Suite will support MWPH’s mission of improving the health and well-being of children in its area who are ill, injured, or in need of help by providing a clear window into the clinical information associated with their own care. Our suite will make it easier for parents and caregivers to understand and follow up on their children’s care and ensure better outcomes.”
Tim Brady, Director of Information Systems at MWPH, added, “We chose HCA for many reasons. We liked the fact that HCA’s portal suite was SaaS-based and hosted in the cloud, thus reducing implementation time and enabling easy maintenance. We liked the look and feel of the portal when we saw it and tested it. We felt it was very user-friendly for our patients and the families of our patients. We also wanted to create greater efficiencies in our organization and HCA’s portal, including online bill paying capabilities and pre-registration, helps us accomplish that. And finally, it was very beneficial that HCA easily interfaced with MEDITECH’s EMR because that is our primary installed system.”
HealthCare Anytime’s full solution suite gives patients specific tools that allow them to help manage their own health better. It gives them the ability to access their health information online real-time, exchange secure messages with MWPH staff, pre-register for appointments as well as handle appointment and prescription renewal requests online.
