Direct Messaging technology has opened the door for secure and instant communication amongst providers and healthcare organizations. Yet, an article in Health Data Management, “Why the inability to exchange data stands in the way of accountable care”, states “only 49% of physicians with EHRs said that they can share patients’ records electronically with clinicians outside their practice.” The failure to adequately share data causes many unnecessary gaps in the continuity of patient care. The article summarizes the problems of gaps in care coordination:

  • Additional and unnecessary healthcare expenses
  • Compromised patient safety
  • Incomplete patient records

As doctors and healthcare organizations look to adopt certified technology vendors, such as RXNT, it is important to understand the vendor’s commitment improving care coordination. Does the organization promote continuity of care by providing direct messaging technology, allowing healthcare organizations to work together to provide better patient care? The benefits of care coordination as defined in the article include:

  • Prevention of illness/sickness
  • Healthcare services available when need
  • Evidence-based medicine
  • Reduce unnecessary healthcare expenses

RXNT is committed to improving the continuity of care through direct messaging capabilities. Direct messaging allows providers to communicate with a patient’s entire care team, whether the care team is in the same office or across the country.

With direct messaging technology available and ready for use, providers should be aware of solutions that improve coordination of care across many healthcare organizations. RXNT offers a fully integrated EHR, PM and E-Prescribing solutions that enable physicians to streamline their workflow.
