CHICAGO, February 27, 2018 – Patient experience software provider, Oneview Healthcare, PLC (ASX:ONE) announced today that they have partnered with EPAM Systems (NYSE: EPAM), a leading global provider of digital platform engineering and software development solutions, to meet growing demand for better digital tools for patients.
Oneview’s digital experience platform enables healthcare systems to innovate the experience of care for both patients and care teams. With the full US market launch of Oneview’s Connect mobile platform, the platform now seamlessly supports the patient journey before, during and after acute episodes of care. The platform enables patients to manage their appointments, prepare for their visits, communicate with their care team, access care information and education, and report experience and outcome data back to the provider. The first implementation of a Connect-powered smartphone app in the US market, for a pediatric hospital, will go-live in Q2 of this year, including integration with the hospital’s Cerner EHR.
A major feature and differentiator is the ability to extend the platform, using the open API to integrate third-party content and data. Examples of use cases include incorporating patient travel information, or telehealth. This ability addresses a growing need in the US market for healthcare systems to build mobile solutions for patients, rather than simply using the “tethered” web portal or app provided by their EHR vendor.
“As the healthcare industry faces increased pressure to deliver patient-centric and value-based care, providers need to leverage technology solutions, like Oneview’s platform, to help educate and entertain patients before, during and after a hospital stay,” said Eladio Alvarez, VP, Head of Healthcare Solutions and Business Development. “Our partnership with Oneview allows our healthcare customers to remain competitive and ultimately, improve the patient experience.”
Under this partnership, EPAM will leverage its digital platform engineering expertise to deliver solutions for clients on the Connect platform, integrating the solution with existing provider systems, accelerating time to market and ensuring ease of maintenance. “We are excited to partner with a company that has such deep expertise in digital transformation and the implementation of digital experience platforms in other consumer-centric industries,” said Niall O’Neill, VP Global Business Development, Oneview. “Consumers are bringing high expectations of service and digital experiences from these other industries to their healthcare encounters, and we believe healthcare systems must look beyond the low bar of Meaningful Use to meet the needs of their customers.”
