Phoenix, AZ: Smart Clinic, one of the most promising new mobile health (mHealth) technology companies, announces the signing of Cary Gastroenterology Associates, the latest medical clinic to employ Smart Clinics HIPPA-compliant, web-based patient engagement platform. Cary Gastroenterology is a leading private GI practice in North Carolina, and the oldest in the Cary region, consisting of seven physicians who are board-certified in Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
Cary Gastroenterology will utilize the Smart Clinic platform to provide mobile procedure preparation protocols and appointment reminders for its patients. The technology will be used to educate patients about their procedures and simplify the preparation process. The physicians at Cary Gastroenterology are committed to improving patient health and longevity by providing high-quality, compassionate and dedicated digestive care that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Its great using the Smart Clinic application in our office, said Stephen Furs, Cary Gastroenterology Managing Partner. The platform is having a positive impact on patient care and operations and it integrates well with our EMR. Patients are more accountable for their procedure preps and the push notification feature has greatly reduced calls to our office due to lost paper instructions.
Smart Clinics effectiveness continues to be validated by medical care providers, with a clinically-proven 35% increase in patient preparation. An extraordinary industry achievement, this increase in patient preparation has resulted in a growing number of endorsements from leading gastroenterology doctors and organizations, including the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG). ACG has selected Smart Clinic as their official patient engagement application and continues to promote the platform to their more than 13,000 members nationwide.
