Braidio, the creator of the award winning WorkStream platform that threads all critical information, people, and business tools into a single point of productivity, announced its partnership with Arkos Health. Arkos was formed from the merger of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s (UPMC) Curavi Health, VIZI Healthcare/Carepointe, and U.S. Health Systems. Arkos Health will utilize the Braidio WorkStreams low-code/no-code platform, powered by the AT&T API Marketplace providing voice, messaging, chat, and video capabilities to create turnkey customer engagement mobile applications. Braidio integrates with Arkos Health’s clinical data warehouse, EPIC, Five9, and other remote patient monitoring service devices to create an intuitive engagement layer. This engagement layer helps empower new access to health services through on-demand virtual care during an unprecedented global pandemic.
The combination of Arkos Health and Braidio will provide virtual care and remote patient management solutions to patients in UPMC’s region-leading hospital network. Together, the partnership will give healthcare professionals the tools to better serve patients, while lowering costs both in UPMC’s extensive patient network, as well as across other regions. UPMC integrates more than 90,000 employees, 40 hospitals, 700 doctor’s offices and outpatient sites, and serves nearly 4 million members in the Pittsburgh region.
“The healthcare industry has been slow to embrace unified digital transformation strategies, resulting in fragmented data management that limits the quality of care a patient receives. In today’s post-pandemic world, we are constantly looking for opportunities to consolidate data and services around patients to improve the quality and access to care, while correspondingly reducing costs. When we are successful, we find our solutions also increase provider revenue while lifting their administrative burden,” said Aaron Duerksen, Executive Vice President and Board Member of Arkos Health. “With Braidio, we are able to provide a new patient engagement experience that consolidates their information and links them to needed concierge health services, whether those services are in-person or virtual. This is the future of healthcare where the power of unified communications, workflow interoperability, and service access can be focused around an integrated patient engagement, as opposed to just delivering services in silos. We are shifting from a static experience to a dynamic, collaborative experience that dramatically enhances care for vulnerable populations and reduces waste.”
“Telehealth solutions have been critical to halting the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and helping providers deliver the care that patients need when walking into clinics isn’t an option. We could be witnessing a shift in expectations for receiving care,” said Rich Shaw, Vice President, Voice and Collaboration for AT&T Business. “By pairing developers like Braidio with capabilities from the AT&T API Marketplace, applications like these can use the power of AT&T’s highly secure network and leading cloud infrastructure to be in a better position to adapt successfully.”
Braidio’s solutions unify data and knowledge silos to create a dynamic and integrated view of patient care. Care providers now gain real-time patient access and insights to create a smarter ecosystem, maintaining a fluid digital journey for patients, and delivering a more agile and tailored concierge approach to patient care. Using Braidio’s My Health Concierge, patients can easily connect with a Care Team professional using live chat, reducing inbound phone calls and providing additional concierge touch points for the patients.
“In this unprecedented time in all of our lives, this pandemic has given all of us a glimpse into the future of healthcare – which will require new tools that are built specifically to enhance patient and revenue automation workflows and embed real time communications that produce results,” said Iain Scholnick, Founder and CEO of Braidio. “Braidio WorkStreams was built with this in mind, eliminating click fatigue and time lost looking for information across data silos, freeing more time to provide better patient care through intuitive experiences that unlock productivity across the entire patient journey. Braidio’s applications are very modular, allowing them to be malleable based on a healthcare partner’s operational needs, and can add other components such as online pharmacy, remote patient monitoring, or be stripped down so it’s very focused on just a few workflows.”
