IngagePatient partners with Texas EHR developer

Patient engagement partnership preparing for national rollout

Patient-oriented software developer IngagePatient, which is partly run from Cool Springs, has signed a deal to integrate its mobile engagement platform with Spring Medical Systems, a Texas-based electronic health record software provider.

IngagePatient, which has a regional office in Franklin where COO Justin Neece is based, will extend Spring Medical Systems' SpringCharts software to patients by letting them use a tablet or smart phone to make appointments, refill prescriptions, pay bills or receive reminders or referrals. The partnership, terms of which were not disclosed, is in implementation mode and is in the process of a national rollout.

"We have a tremendous relationship with Spring Medical and are excited about their enthusiasm in launching our combined fully integrated solution," said Neece. "The combination of SpringCharts and IngagePatient creates a differentiated service that extends the reach of physicians beyond the doctor's office through mobile technology."

Spring Medical CEO Mark Benvegnu, whose team works with thousands of doctors across the country, said practices have been asking for patient engagement tools "and are very excited about the rollout."
