MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zipnosis, the first virtual care solution that empowers health systems to launch their own branded virtual care platform, is expanding its offerings with the launch of ZipTicket™– a virtual boarding pass that gives patients front-of-the-line access to in-clinic lab tests.
"Health systems use our platform to expand access to care by leveraging their own clinicians, and with ZipTicket, we are further streamlining the process by improving the patient experience and increasing efficiencies," said Jon Pearce, co-founder and CEO of Zipnosis. "Unlike other out-sourced telemedicine providers, ZipTicket extends a provider's integrated care delivery model, resulting in better medicine, better patient experience and a more sustainable economic model."
Twenty health systems around the country including Fairview Health Systems, University of Alabama-Birmingham, Group Health and John Muir Health utilize the Zipnosis platform.
Patients may be treated for more than 90 conditions using our pioneering adaptive interview, triaged directly into a phone or video encounter if needed, or directed to visit a clinic for faster service using our ZipTicket® boarding pass for rapid tests like strep.
"Over the past seven years, we developed the technology, trust, experience and playbook to help health care systems launch a best-in-class virtual care service in 60 days or less," Pearce said. "We've been testing the ZipTicket concept for nearly two years and have used our extensive retail clinic experience to ensure it is easy for patients to use and for providers to implement."
ZipTicket seamlessly integrates the in-clinic workflow, lab tests and clinical decision support to offer a faster, better patient and provider experience. Zipnosis' software also integrates with a health system's electronic medical record and patient portals, allowing health systems to serve both existing and new patients.
Zipnosis recently raised $17 million in Series A financing led by Safeguard Scientifics, Inc. with participation from Ascension Ventures, a subsidiary of Ascension, the nation's largest non-profit and Catholic health system; along with existing investors Fairview Health Services, Hyde Park Venture Partners, Arthur Ventures, Waterline Ventures and Omphalos Ventures.
