As Appriss CEO Krishnan Sastry and Appriss Health President Rob Cohen express in our new videos, the impact of the acquisition spans countless groups and individuals.
By now, you may have heard that Appriss Health acquired PatientPing. Appriss Health delivers point-of-care and data-sharing solutions that improve public health outcomes, particularly related to prescription drug monitoring and behavioral health. PatientPing leverages technology to simplify care collaboration by connecting providers and supporting whole person care.
While the two companies have separate histories of impacting American healthcare in many ways, leadership from both expect to be better together.
As Rob recently stated, “Through our combined technology solutions, clinicians and care teams will be able to connect and collaborate on a common platform to better support their patients’ whole physical and behavioral healthcare experience.”
It is that collaboration that results in more patient knowledge, and, ultimately, better outcomes; And it is those outcomes that result in increased collaboration. There is a clear full-circle effect here that benefits so many parties, including not only clinicians and patients, but also health plans, health systems, and states.
Health plans will be able to efficiently coordinate care in real-time, resulting in reduced costs for the health plans themselves and members alike. Health systems will be able to see more complete pictures of patients’ histories and provide better care across the continuum. And states will be equipped with the aggregated data and analysis they need to tackle big public health issues such as the mental health crisis and opioid epidemic.
For more on the impact of this acquisition and how it will impact all of us, hear what Krishnan and Rob have to say in our new videos.
