ATLANTA – December 16, 2013 – Digital Assent, the
leading provider of real-time patient satisfaction surveys and online
reputation marketing solutions for the United States healthcare market,
today announced it has joined the Greenway Medical Technologies online
Marketplace of value-added partners for users of Greenway’s integrated
electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solutions.
Being named a Marketplace approved partner signifies cooperative
efforts between Digital Assent and Greenway to provide comprehensive,
mission-critical health IT solutions that support the delivery of
high-quality, cost-effective care.
Patient satisfaction is becoming a front-and-center issue in the
healthcare conversation. Last year, the Centers for Medicare &
Medicaid Services finalized details of a new reimbursement method that
adjusts payments based on patient satisfaction scores — a measure also
being adopted by private insurers. And patient satisfaction scores
often appear as the only scores on public websites designed to help
patients make more informed choices about where to seek healthcare.
Digital Assent’s tablet-based PatientPad® solution is the healthcare
industry’s first in-office solution for capturing online reviews and
testimonials from patients. Patients use an iPad® tablet to rate their
visit and share their feedback at the time of service and, with each
patient’s consent, the reviews and testimonials can be automatically
published online to the doctor’s website, Facebook page, Google search
results and a growing number of established doctor review sites.
“Membership in the Greenway Marketplace showcases our expertise in
helping doctors improve patient satisfaction and grow their online
reputation, and demonstrates our ability to complement Greenway and its
solutions,” said Andrew Ibbotson, founder and CEO of Digital Assent.
“Our award-winning PatientPad platform and ReviewCatcher technology are
ideally suited to help Greenway customers compete more effectively in
today’s rapidly changing healthcare marketplace.” .
“The Greenway Marketplace showcases partners like Digital Assent that
have developed innovative solutions highly complementary to Greenway
solutions,” said Jared Lisenby, Greenway vice president of business
development. “Greenway customers now have the option of adopting
PatientPad® and ReviewCatcher™ through the Marketplace with the
assurance that it adds value to their Greenway implementation and is
ready to help them navigate healthcare’s future.”
