CT hospitals using app to coordinate care

Twenty-five Connecticut hospitals have partnered for a year with a Boston-based health tech company called PatientPing that helps healthcare professionals coordinate care for patients, according to the Connecticut Hospital Association (CHA).

"This statewide effort is all about improving patient care," said Jennifer Jackson, CHA CEO. "The system empowers providers to manage patient care in a way that ensures patients get the right care in the right place at the right time."

The real-time, patient-centered app allows providers to better coordinate with one another to achieve higher levels of care for Connecticut patients. The platform gives providers real-time information about where patients are being treated. Patient information also can be shared via the app through the healthcare system.

The technology was adopted in May of 2016 and has relayed more than 455,000 notifications to more than 300 health care providers across 10 states, said Jay Desai, co-founder & CEO of PatientPing.
