Alzheimer’s Association Announces Partnership with Mediprocity to
Provide Immediate Connection to Crucial Support Services 

 

St Louis (July 25, 2016) - The Alzheimer’s Association St. Louis Chapter today announced a partnership with local tech company Mediprocity to launch a new secure messaging system for doctors and healthcare providers to immediately connect newly-diagnosed Alzheimer’s patients with the Association’s critical support services. 

 
Direct Connect Rapid Referral is a HIPAA compliant communications application which enables secure messages to be sent either via a computer or mobile device – resulting in a more efficient referral process and more timely engagement with Association programming such as disease education, on-on-one care consultations and caregiver support.
 
“What’s key about Rapid Referral is the immediate connection,” said Stephanie Rohlfs-Young, Vice President of Programs for the Alzheimer's Association St. Louis.  “Too often individuals and families receive an Alzheimer's diagnosis and they don’t know where to turn for support. Even when a healthcare professional recommends they contact the Association, it takes on average, more than two years for families to voluntarily connect with us.” 
 
According to Rohlfs-Young, through Rapid Referral, outreach and subsequent engagement with Association services is much quicker. A primary reason for this is that families give their consent for Association staff to follow-up with them to initiate the process.        
 
Rapid Referral was test piloted earlier this year with nine area healthcare provider groups, resulting in more than 45 connections to the Alzheimer’s Association during the three month trial period.  Nearly 90 percent of these families received personalized care consultations, with 30 percent requesting ongoing monthly follow-up from a social worker.
 
"We received a great response from providers who used Rapid Referral during the pilot phase," said Mediprocity CEO Mason Rothert.  "Our hope is that more doctors and providers will see the inherent value in the system -- expedited engagement with the critical support and care provided by Alzheimer's Association services."

partnershipMissouri companies partner to save healthcare providers potentially thousands of dollars in fines, protect patient privacy St. Louis, MO (May 1, 2015) – Two Missouri companies have partnered to prevent potentially thousands of dollars in regulatory fines to healthcare providers and protect patient privacy by equipping a St. Louis-based phone answering service with encrypted text messaging.

St. Louis based Mediprocity, a provider of secure messaging software for desktop and mobile devices, and phone exchange/virtual office services company Business Centers of Missouri have integrated their software capabilities so that physicians, hospice, home health and other healthcare providers can receive protected patient health information via text messages from Business Centers Of Missouri’s answering service operation.

“The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is one of a number of stringent patient privacy protection laws that healthcare professionals must follow,” said Mediprocity CEO Mason Rothert. “Regulators are giving huge fines to providers that do not comply.  Text messaging is the fastest form of communication in today’s health community and it has to be encrypted to protect the public and the providers.”

With this partnership Business Centers of Missouri’s regional and national healthcare customers can sign on with Mediprocity and download the app to their desktop and/or mobile devices. Almost immediately customers can receive encrypted text messages from the answering service, eliminating hours of phone tag and improving response time.  The answering service receives documented confirmation via text when the message is read and can answer any ensuing questions via text.  

"For 40 years we have focused on providing solutions for our customers that work the way the customer wants it to work,” said Business Centers of Missouri President and owner Todd Kamp. “We are a HIPAA-certified company and Mediprocity’s app gives our customers access to even faster, secure and accessible communication and makes more efficient use of our staff time.”

The two companies envisioned the partnership when they realized they shared common clients.  One of them, Nurses and Company (N&C), a locally owned hospice, private services and home health provider has served as the pilot. Both companies were providing different aspects of HIPAA-compliant communication for N&C and they realized many other clients had areas of risk and needed the unique tools that each company offers. The cloud-based Mediprocity app is free to physicians and offers affordable plans for every size of health organization.  Data is encrypted in transit and stored on secure servers – not on mobile or desktop devices.

“Ensuring that our patient’s personal health information is protected is a priority for us. The partnership between Mediprocity and Business Centers helps our staff maintain compliance while allowing us to quickly and efficiently respond to on call messages from patients, family members, facilities and  physicians.” said Ann Byrum Groomes, President of N&C.

KEYSTONE IT ADDS MEDIPROCITY TO CLIENT OFFERINGS

Network Solution Safeguards Patient Health Information, Improves Physician Communications

St. Louis, MO, March 14, 2014 - Keystone IT today announced it is partnering with Mediprocity to bring end-to-end Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant communications to its healthcare clients. Mediprocity is a fully encrypted platform allowing secure transfer of patient information between physicians, healthcare providers and business associates on the web and mobile devices. The communications tool is offered free of charge to physicians and also two staff members for those that sign up by May 2014. Eric Humes, Chief Executive Officer of Keystone IT, says healthcare organizations cannot afford to risk potential data breaches, with stiff government penalties already being imposed.

“While patient privacy regulations have been part of medical practice for more than a decade, the HIPAA Final Rule of September 2013 enforces significant fines for violations due to reasonable cause and willful neglect alike,” says Humes. “We are so pleased to integrate the Mediprocity solution with our compliance support services in not only giving providers peace of mind, but improved communications regarding their patients.”

Mediprocity utilizes cloud and encryption technology to enable physicians to collaborate, connect and refer patients in a safe environment. The system includes a mobile app that works like texting on a smartphone or other mobile device, with audible alerts, priority referrals and other features, and can also be used on a desktop or laptop computer. Physicians are assured that messages and attachments are delivered securely in real time, enhancing workflow and patient continuity of care. More than 1,000 users have signed on to the Mediprocity platform to date.

“Delays in communication no longer represent a delay in care,” says Dr. Aaron Salyapongse, Director of Hip and Knee Surgery at Valley Care Hospital in San Francisco, CA. “Our pilot study with Mediprocity showed an average response time from doctors of one to two minutes, compared to 28 minutes when they used pagers and phones. Having fast, secure text messaging is critical for how my team and I relay doctors’ orders and changes in patient status, get nursing updates and therapy reports and communicate other important information.”

Humes says that Keystone IT will assist clients in implementing Mediprocity, training staff and associates and maximizing system benefits. Additionally, ongoing support will be provided through the Keystone IT Help Desk. More information on Keystone client offerings can be found on the company’s website.

Established in 2001, St. Louis-based Keystone IT is a leading provider of Healthcare IT consulting and technology support in the Midwest. Keystone also provides hardware, software, networking and “Kloud” based services. The Company offers personalized services to both solo physician practices and multi-hospital health systems.
