Jardogs and Healthland Announce Patient Engagement Collaboration

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Jardogs, a leading provider of patient engagement and health management solutions, has partnered with Healthland, the nation's largest provider of fully integrated solutions to rural community and critical access hospitals, to make their FollowMyHealth(TM) Universal Health Record solution available as Healthland's exclusive patient engagement portal. This collaboration will provide deep integration with Healthland's electronic health records (EHR) solutions, as well as help their 500-plus clients across the country meet Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements.

FollowMyHealth(TM) (FMH) combines the global connectivity and patient management aspects of a personal health record with the integration of a patient portal to create the only true Universal Health Record. FMH integrates directly into established workflows to provide a seamless, uninterrupted work process. For patients, FMH provides a single point of access to their medical records, a secure online connection for interaction and communication with their providers, as well as a tool that enables them to take a proactive role in managing their own personal health and wellness.

"An intuitive, robust patient portal is a cornerstone of any successful strategy to increase patient engagement, especially as the industry moves toward accountable care models," said Michael Karaman, Healthland senior vice president for product. "Jardogs' singular focus on patient engagement and their proven record of success in managing patient records were important considerations in our decision to integrate their FollowMyHealth Universal Health Record patient portal into our solutions. Jardogs delivers all of the features and functionality a patient could want in a personal health information portal--managing appointments, prescriptions, bills and payments online--as well as the best user interface and workflows that we encountered in our extensive evaluations." "Jardogs is very pleased to be partnering with Healthland," said Jim Hewitt, CEO of Jardogs. "The addition of the FollowMyHealth Universal Health Record to Healthland's already strong offerings creates even more value for Healthland's customers and for patients in those communities. In addition, we believe in working with companies whose goals align with ours, and both Jardogs and Healthland are dedicated to moving patient engagement forward in a smart and focused direction."
