Partnership allows pager users access to secure, two-way care coordination and messaging
New York, NY - September 15, 2015 – Cureatr, Inc. today announced a new partnership with American Messaging Services, LLC, making Cureatr’s capabilities for enhanced, real-time care coordination and communication available to healthcare providers that use American Messaging at more than 1,400 hospitals across the country.
The unique combination of a trusted pager interface with Cureatr’s innovative mobile care coordination platform offers healthcare providers access to patient-centric secure messaging and dynamic clinical workflows. Using this product, the full care team of doctors, nurses, social workers, care managers and operations staff will benefit from direct person-to-person outreach and response. Providers will also be able to receive their American Messaging pages on their mobile phones using the Cureatr application, allowing seamless delivery and response across all platforms. Implementation of the Cureatr care coordination platform is currently underway by several American Messaging customers.
“As a physician, I relied on receiving critical care communications through a pager. With this partnership, we are leveraging two best-in-class platforms to support the complexity that healthcare providers face when seeking to respond to the right care team members with fast and relevant information,” said Joseph Mayer, MD, co-founder and chief executive officer of Cureatr. “By integrating Cureatr’s care coordination platform with the functionality of the American Messaging pagers, we give healthcare providers an advanced, yet easily actionable notification and communication system. There is nothing else like this in the market today.”
As Cureatr continues to build new networks of Care Transition Notifications™ (CTN) across the country, this partnership with American Messaging, located in Lewisville, TX, will both accelerate and enhance the creation and connection of the network effect, allowing providers immediate notification of patient events and enabling effective care coordination across multiple provider groups. The partnership also extends Cureatr’s on-going efforts to make affordable care coordination solutions available to DSRIP performing provider systems in New York state.
“We did extensive research to determine what we felt was the best product and partnership for our customers – and Cureatr is it. We are very pleased to be able to integrate the AMS platform with Cureatr’s secure care coordination platform. Our customers now have the flexibility to receive notifications and communicate across five distinct platforms across pagers, mobile devices and the web,” said J. Roy Pottle, chairman and chief executive officer of American Messaging. “We are looking forward to the next step in launching Care Transition Notification™ services, which will help facilitate the effectiveness and efficiency of patient care.”
