Analytics tools: Prehypertension affects nearly 1 in 3 Americans and can lead to hypertension if ignored. Analytics software helps clinicians proactively search for hypertension risk factors such as elevated blood pressure, obesity and smoking — revealing at-risk patients who may benefit from early intervention.
Patient engagement tools: For hypertensive patients, having support to make better diet and exercise choices, reduce stress and break bad habits can be the key to success. Patient support tools, such as readily available health information and secure messaging with providers, can help them adhere to physician recommendations.
Appointment reminder tools: Automated reminders by phone, email or text help patients remember upcoming appointments and tests, so they get the continuing care they need.
Data exchange tools: Hypertensive patients often have more than a dozen appointments per year with primary care providers and specialists, creating a wealth of health information. By sharing those records electronically — using an information exchange solution — providers can have a more comprehensive view of a patient’s progress.
Patient engagement tools: Patients can also facilitate record sharing by sending blood pressure readings and other data to providers using a patient portal with secure record-sending functionality.
Electronic health records (EHRs): For the most effective data exchange, the information in the shared records must be comprehensive. Prime Suite, Greenway Health’s EHR solution, equips providers with clinical templates for hypertension, routine blood pressure checks and other hypertension-related visits, which helps providers document efficiently while providing effective care.
Eligibility verification: Medications, copays, tests and other hypertension treatments can be costly for patients, especially those with high-deductible health plans. Greenway Health helps manage costs by sharing financial insights at a clinical level — such as eligibility screening and formulary checks that reveal whether a treatment or prescription is covered by the patient’s insurance plan — so patients and clinicians can consider cost when making decisions.
Medical billing solutions: Greenway helps practices collect what they’re owed through financial services that include sending collections letters, processing payments and supporting practices’ billing procedures.
