MUSC Children’s Health Selects Proficient Health for Provider-to-Provider Communications
Last Updated: On July 22, 2021
GREENSBORO, N.C. – May 26, 2021 – Today Proficient Health announced that MUSC Children’s Health in Charleston, S.C., has signed a multi-year contract with Proficient Health for their use of PH Connect™, a HIPAA-compliant software solution for community-wide, provider-to-provider communications.
Part of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) health system, MUSC Children’s Health specialists often field consultation requests from physicians across the southeast.
Now, rather than dialing into a call center, providers can use their PH Connect app to reach the right physician, practice or service line at MUSC Children’s without having to figure out who is on call or available. Integrated call schedules and intelligent routing always directs calls and messages to the appropriate provider, complete with any supporting notes, images and test results.
“Over the last several months, MUSC has seen improvements in our communication with providers community-wide with PH Connect,” says Dr. Mark Scheurer, Chief of MUSC Children’s and Women’s Health. “The overall goal is to make it easier for clinicians statewide to reach MUSC providers, all while reducing call center volumes and operating costs.”
“We are eager to see the continued success of MUSC Children’s Health as they are opening the doors for providers to engage with one another through communication tools they already use on a daily basis,” says Robb Hutchison, CEO of Proficient Health. “PH Connect was designed for physicians, by physicians to support better patient care.”
