FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Aug. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Managed Health Care Associates, Inc. (MHA), a leading health care services and software company focused on the alternate site health care provider marketplace, is pleased to announce the launch of new patient engagement platform MHALink™ powered by Citus Health. This innovative solution to help specialty and infusion pharmacies build operational efficiencies and drive optimal patient outcomes is enabled by an exclusive partnership between MHA and Citus Health, a digital health company that provides a platform and suite of software applications to help post-acute care providers transform business processes into streamlined digital workflows.
Accessible through any mobile device or computer, MHALink™ powered by Citus Health streamlines the patient support process by providing prompt answers to common questions and enabling real-time staff-to-staff and staff-to-patient communications. This eliminates many of the cumbersome, manual and costly inefficient processes that otherwise can hamper the provision of care, and empowers patients, caregivers and care team members to communicate in a timely manner. This collaborative, secure and HIPAA-compliant communication environment often results in less stress for patients and greater therapy compliance. As adherence rates and satisfaction scores climb, home infusion providers and specialty pharmacies are better positioned to drive revenue from their referral sources and confidently take on value-based reimbursement contracts.
