Patient Communication Services Help Clinics Meet Stage II Meaningful Use

Help patients find education services by text messaging reminders.



    DALLAS, TX, January 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- AdTel International, Inc.'s Doctorconnect.net is an interactive patient communication service using two-way text/SMS, voice, and email communications to increase patient and family engagement. The core meaningful use requirement of using relevant medical information to remind patient of reventative/follow-up care and provide messaging in a secure electronic format are core Stage II requirements that doctorconnect.net can help the practice achieve.

In addition clinics with EHR that provide access to the objectives of patient access and transfer of records must show utilization of the patient information portal. Doctorconnect.net messaging is an excellent platform to drive traffic to the patient portal and demonstrate meaningful use.

Bob Manley, President for AdTel, said, "Current EHR often provides the links to labs, pharmacies, government reporting requirements. However, because of the structure of many EHR systems, text messaging and emails for directing patients to secure websites for a summary of each office visit and provide relevant patient education services is not included. Both of those functions must be utilized for Stage II incentive payments."

DoctorConnect.net is a subsidiary of AdTel International, Inc. that provides text, voice or email reminders to patients of upcoming scheduled appointments, reminders of vaccination schedules, re-care reminders, notices of availability of test results, notices of prescription refills, and notices of appointment schedule changes. The system allows patients to confirm appointments automatically or request a change in appointment time if necessary. The service is used by a variety of healthcare providers in a wide range of specialties and general medical practice as well as dentists, veterinarians, chiropractors, therapists, and home health providers.

AdTel International, Inc. is a privately held corporation based in Dallas, Texas that has been providing communication systems through innovative technology since 1992. AdTel may be contacted at 972-503-0717 or via our website www.doctorconnect.net.
