Dallas based digital care coordination software company Blockit has established a contract with Beaumont Health, Michigan’s largest health care system. Blockit will provide provider referral and online patient self-scheduling solutions for patients for the entire system, which includes eight hospitals with 3,429 beds, 145 outpatient sites, 23 urgent care centers, and nearly 5,000 affiliated physicians.
“Providers like Beaumont work tirelessly to coordinate their patients’ care and arrange appointments, generally through countless phone calls, faxes and even email,” said Blockit CEO, Jake McCarley via releaese. “Our technology helps put an end to those manual processes, allowing them to not only focus more on their patients’ health, but to also dramatically improve the delivery of care.”
Blockit was founded two years ago to provide digital tools to help health systems follow up on patients and prevent patient leakage, give patients tools to follow up on their own care, and help address social determinants of health. The platform has been used by two million patients so far, and was the winner of a D CEO magazine Innovation Award. The partnership with Beaumont was established late last year.
“It is important for Beaumont to offer our patients a continuum of care,” Beaumont Health Chief Operating Officer Carolyn Wilson said via release. “Our patients are at the center of everything we do. And, our patients have asked for the ability to schedule follow-up appointments, on the spot, regardless of what electronic health record system their health care provider uses.”
