Overview

The client currently manages their clinical practice using multiple systems, which became cumbersome with the expansion of services. Seeking efficiency, they looked for an all-inclusive EHR software solution. Additionally, acknowledging the significance of patient engagement, they desired a mobile app enabling seamless connection for consultations and health document sharing. Patients also seek secure access to their personal healthcare records stored within the EHR.

To address these needs, the client entrusted Thinkitive with developing an integrated EHR system. This system would seamlessly integrate with a patient mobile application, offering comprehensive functionality to enhance clinic operations and patient-provider interactions.

Business challenges

    1. System Fragmentation:

    Managing clinical operations across multiple systems led to inefficiencies and duplication of efforts, hindering workflow optimization and staff productivity.

    2. Limited Patient Engagement:

    Without a dedicated mobile application, patient engagement opportunities were limited, impacting communication between patients and providers and potentially affecting patient satisfaction and outcomes.

    3. Risk of errors and non-compliance:

    Data fragmentation and manual processes increased the risk of errors and potential non-compliance with regulations.
