NEW YORK – June 8, 2017 – Outcome Health, which partners with healthcare providers to serve actionable health intelligence at the moment of care to improve patient outcomes, today announced that it has partnered with United Rheumatology. Through this preferred partnership, Outcome Health will deliver digital health information from United Rheumatology to its member providers within Outcome Health’s network of outpatient facilities and across existing United Rheumatology practices.
“Rheumatology providers who are well-informed and with the most up-to-date information in their practices are positioned to improve practice efficiencies, and deliver better health outcomes to patients,” said Dr. Max Hamburger, Founder and Executive Chairman of United Rheumatology. “Our organization believes that the physician-patient relationship is stronger when both patients and physicians have access to credible, actionable health intelligence. Outcome Health’s platform offers United Rheumatology an unique opportunity to deliver credible, patient-centered rheumatology information from our organization to these rheumatologists in an engaging and effective way – right before and during the consultation.”
In addition to the delivery of United Rheumatology’s digital information to relevant offices, United Rheumatology members will have the option to link their patient portal sign-up to Outcome Health’s interactive consultation room technologies. Physicians in these practices can also receive insights and analytics on how patients and providers are engaging with the interactive information.
“We are thrilled to feature United Rheumatology’s best-in-class network of community physicians across the country in pursuit of better health outcomes,” said Matthew Garms, Outcome Health’s Director of Association Partnerships. “By bringing this information to its integrated network of independent physicians, we have the opportunity to advance the standard of care for patients, while improving business outcomes for the practices themselves.”
