Proficient Health Merges with Firm Specializing in Mobile Communication Apps
Expands its portfolio of solutions linking healthcare providers across incompatible systems and networks
GREENSBORO, N.C. – July 17, 2019 – Today Proficient Health, an information technology company specializing in the secure exchange of referrals and other protected healthcare information, announced it has merged with MD Interconnect, a Raleigh-based company specializing in secure mobile communication solutions for healthcare providers.
Separately, today, Proficient Health announced that David Hoover, MD, a practicing pediatric surgeon and founder of MD Interconnect, is joining the company as its new chief medical officer. Karen Hohenstein, CEO and cofounder of MD Interconnect, is joining the Proficient Health board of directors and will support the company as a business development consultant.
“MD Interconnect is a great fit for us,” says Robb Hutchison, Proficient Health CEO. “We both focus on secure referral management and other web-based solutions that eliminate the technology barriers created by incompatible devices, systems and networks – linking people and practices securely across any inpatient or outpatient setting. And with MD Interconnect’s mobility experience, we now have the opportunity to offer an expanded set of capabilities to both our new and existing customers.”
MD Interconnect’s flagship solution is RapidConnect, a secure mobile messaging solution that helps clinicians reach the right provider right away. Industry-leading intelligent routing capabilities eliminate the lag time associated with phone tag, unanswered pages and answering service call queues.
PH Connect (formerly RapidConnect) joins a Proficient Health solution portfolio that includes:
PH Exchange, a web-based referral management platform that lets any accountable care organization or health system work seamlessly across a community of providers to coordinate care.
PH Capture, a web-based solution that converts any paper-based healthcare process into a highly efficient, digital workflow – eliminating faxing and scanning.
“We are excited about the synergies between our two solution platforms,” says Hohenstein. “Together we can streamline communication between providers and positively impact the delivery, quality and cost of care.”
Proficient Health is headquartered in Greensboro, N.C., with a satellite office on N.C. State University’s Centennial research campus. All MD Interconnect employees have transitioned to the Proficient Health team and are expected to remain in their current locations.
