Valley Health System said it will be implementing Rx.Health’s flagship Digital Therapeutics Prescribing Platform and EHR integrated RxStitch Engine.
The partnership marks Rx.Health’s entry into the New Jersey health care market.
Ridgewood-based Valley Health has implemented RxHealth with its electrophysiologic patients.
Dr. Robert Brenner, president, Clinical Integration & Physician Enterprise at Valley Health said the app benefits patients because it helps with timely communication and it is engaging.
“For example, if someone is going for a procedure like a colonoscopy, the app would send information on the pre-procedure diet, when to start the prep, potential complications of a prep and what you can expect when you do the prep, as well as the post-procedure instructions,” said Brenner.
Brenner said that not only has this raised patient satisfaction but it can also decrease no shows by as much as 30 percent.
“Partnering with Valley Health System confirms that sophisticated health systems are ready to engage Digital Medicine and Digital Therapeutics to offer patients the best care plans,” said Gaurav Narang, Rx.Health vice president of Strategic Partnerships. “Currently, digital health is quite fragmented and unaffordable. Our mission statement has always been to support enterprise-wide digital transformation and address fragmentation in digital health by supporting multiple-use-cases under one umbrella, so implementing at Valley Health is in direct alignment with that goal,” said Narang.
Brenner said the partnership with Rx.Health is a natural extension of Valley’s commitment to provide continuous and comprehensive care to all patients through innovation.
Rx.Health was founded as a spinoff from New York’s Mount Sinai Health System.
