“Philips Patient Navigation Manager does a great job helping providers communicate with patients while improving outcomes, while MedChat helps make that HIPAA-compliant conversation two-way, real-time, and an enhanced experience,” said Matt Yagey, Founder and CEO at MedChat. “We are excited to bring our integrated solution to Philips customers and also see an enormous need for Patient Navigation Manager among our hundreds of customers.”
The Philips-Medchat collaboration follows a similar enhancement to digitally connect patients to practitioners outside the hospital or clinic. Earlier this year, Philips teamed with openDoctor to integrate real-time patient self-scheduling capabilities into Philips Patient Navigation Manager. The customizable, single-vendor solution for radiology patient management aims to reduce lost slots, improve speed of scheduling, optimize appointment preparation, and improve patient and staff satisfaction.
Philips Patient Navigation Manager, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, will be highlighted at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting (November 28 - December 2, 2021, Chicago, U.S.A.). Join Philips at RSNA 2021 where the company will spotlight its latest portfolio of radiology workflow solutions and smart connected imaging systems to increase efficiency and diagnostic confidence in precision care and treatment, and follow @PhilipsLiveFrom for updates throughout RSNA.
