Amkai to provide portals for surgical patients

Amkai joins forces with Medfusion to provide surgical customers and affiliated practices patient-to-provider communication solutions

Waterbury, CT and Cary, NC ---March 9, 2010 --- Amkai  announced today that they have selected Medfusion, the forerunner in patient-to-provider online communication solutions, to provide ambulatory surgery centers, surgical hospitals and affiliated practices with a HIPAA-compliant patient portal to improve office efficiencies.

Amkai customers will now be able to redirect hundreds of hours of paperwork and phone time directly to patient care by allowing patients to use the Internet to set up an “account” to provide the facility with their demographic and medical history information. This will improve accuracy and streamline the entry of important information into AmkaiOffice, and AmkaiCharts, the company’s management and EMR systems.

Facilities will also be able to provide patients with “Protected Health Information “(PHI) using Medfusion’s Secure Messaging solution to expedite patient-physician communications like health maintenance, lab results and appointment reminders.  Plus, additional forms can be added to the portal to provide various types of information to a single patient, group of patients or to all of a center’s patients as a general broadcast.
“Our mission and focus is always about finding the right partnerships to enhance our comprehensive software solutions for outpatient healthcare. By adding Medfusion’s patient portal to our full spectrum approach, we are able to offer our customers a patient portal solution that will empower them to optimize their office efficiencies and provide value to their patients,” said Joe Macies, CEO of Amkai.

Web portal services are shown to reduce patient no-shows, decrease print and mailing costs and boost office productivity. Clinics offering interactive website options significantly enhance the overall experience for patients in a practice. Patients perform a number of self-service tasks without having to pick up the phone to reach the practice or fill out redundant paperwork.
