BOISE, Idaho, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kno2™, the company that optimizes patient document exchange for everyone in healthcare, today announced its entrance into chronic care and transitions management through its partnership with America's, MHT, Inc. (MHT), a healthcare management company delivering comprehensive and coordinated primary care to Medicare seniors in their homes. Kno2's exchange platform will remove fax from the process of coordinating care for this patient population, enabling MHT care teams to exchange interoperable patient documentation simply and securely with all stakeholders involved in serving chronic and transition care patients.
"Anyone in the trenches of managing patients with chronic conditions and those navigating through the spectrum of services knows that faxes fly thick and fast as home health practitioners, primary care providers, specialists, diagnostic centers and other members of the care team do their best to coordinate care," explained Debra Wertzberger, President & COO of MHT. "At MHT, we determined that eliminating fax and optimizing care coordination was the key to delivering superior care to the Medicare seniors we serve. Kno2's platform allows us to do that without disrupting the workflow of any member of the care team. We are now equipped to deliver the best, most-coordinated care in the chronic care and transitions management space."
Kno2 solves a critical aspect of chronic care and transitions coordination by optimizing the complex (yet common) document-centric workflows found throughout the care continuum. Its cloud-based platform leverages each provider's existing technology infrastructure to create structured and interoperable clinical document exchange from unstructured content.
Now MHT can not only connect disparate data and documentation sources between the referring providers, care teams and supporting provider community to coordinate care for its patient population but also submit data directly to the population health platform tasked with analyzing and reporting on chronic care conditions. Closing this loop ensures that organizations have accurate information with which to assess their performance in chronic care management.
"At Kno2, we are passionate about bridging the gaps that prevent patient information from flowing securely across the continuum," said Jon Elwell, CEO of Kno2. "Chronic care management is a place where these gaps are prevalent and have the greatest consequences. We are excited to ensure that MHT and the providers they coordinate with have the insights and tools they need to serve this population well."
Kno2™ optimizes patient document exchange for everyone in healthcare. The company's cloud-based platform improves the healthcare experience for providers and their patients by making sharing documents easy, affordable and secure. Even healthcare providers with limited resources can participate in the simple, structured exchange of patient documents—without changing their workflow or technology infrastructure. The Kno2 platform captures and exchanges documents from virtually any source ranging from a fax machine to an EMR. The innovative platform is smart enough to determine the most interoperable format and method of exchange for a document. All of this functionality is available through a simple set of APIs or through Kno2's provider portal. Learn more about how Kno2 adds value to patient document exchange at www.kno2.com.
