Alisa Hughley from enBloom discusses how Hello Health is helping physicians provide better care with Steven Ferguson, Patient Management Officer.
Myca Health, a Canadian-based company led by Nat Findlay decided to focus on the solo practice primary care physician and small group practices. Unlike sub-specialty physicians, many of these practices are struggling to remain solvent. Last month at Health2.0 Springfling: Matchpoint Boston, Myca featured their subsidiary, Hello Health in a “deep dive” presentation by Patient Management Officer, Steven Ferguson. Hello Health is a cloud based patient management platform that includes an electronic medical record (EMR) certified for meaningful use, a patient portal (PHP) and a telemedicine feature. It is designed so that a primary care provider can completely monetize their workflow and communication. In our current insurance reimbursement model physicians are not compensated for the cognitive or thinking and consultative care they coordinate and deliver. Rather they are compensated for the procedures and interventions they perform. With Hello Health, primary care physician communication with the pharmacy, the laboratory, various specialists and patients, all become fee-for-service transactions.
