PatientKeeper and HCA Awarded U.S. Patent for Technology that Underlies Physician Workflow Automation System
Patent recognizes proprietary method for data aggregation and presentation within PatientKeeper applications
WALTHAM, MA, Feb. 20, 2018 -- PatientKeeper®, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has awarded the company and its corporate parent, HCA Healthcare, Inc., a patent for technology they invented that underlies PatientKeeper’s physician workflow automation software.
The patent, entitled “Contextual Assessment of Current Conditions” (U.S. No. 9,779,611), describes the mechanism by which PatientKeeper aggregates disparate sources of patient data and presents the most relevant components for the patient’s current condition to individual users based on their clinical specialty and personal preferences. As implemented in PatientKeeper software, the result is an information system that enables physicians to make more informed and actionable care decisions directly at the point of care.
PatientKeeper’s EHR optimization software solutions streamline clinician workflow, improve care team collaboration, and fill functional gaps in existing hospital EHR systems. With PatientKeeper as the “system of engagement” complementing the EHR, clinicians can easily access and act on all their patient information from PCs, smartphones and tablets. PatientKeeper has more than 70,000 active users today. For more information about PatientKeeper, visit www.patientkeeper.com or call (781) 373-6100.
