Practice Portal Makes Patient-Physician Communication More Efficient
Dallas, Texas - May 21, 2007 - It was announced today that Sage Software Healthcare, Inc. has won 2nd place in the "Towards an Electronic Record (TEPR) Hot Products Awards" for its Intergy by Sage Practice Portal. Entries were rated on criteria including company profile, product profile, infrastructure and integration, and product differentiation.
Intergy by Sage Practice Portal provides a web presence for physician offices, enhances patients' online experience with existing websites, allows patients to actively participate in their care through online services, and instantly connects the physician to the patient electronically. Additionally, it can be easily customized for each practice, making its look, feel, and utility unique to the practice that uses it.
"Intergy by Sage Practice Portal is a product of our renewed emphasis on - and commitment to - innovation in service to our customers and their patients," said Andy Corbin, CEO, Sage Software Healthcare, Inc. "This culture of innovation will serve our company and our customers well for years to come."
The portal integrates seamlessly with the Intergy by Sage practice management system and Electronic Health Records (EHR) system. It enables patient self-serve for updating demographic and insurance information. It also streamlines communication between a patient and practice personnel, enabling refill requests, appointment scheduling and more - all within timeframes that better meet the needs of the practice.
Sage Software collaborated directly with Kryptiq to implement the Intergy by Sage Patient Portal using Kryptiq's Software Developer Kit (SDK). The portal is currently in final-phase quality control testing and is expected to be generally available to customers in July.
