Maine’s Northern Light Beacon Health Partners with PatientPing to Coordinate Care for Patients Throughout the State — and Beyond

BOSTONNov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — PatientPing, a health technology company that connects providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care, today announced it has launched in the state of Maine through its new partnership with Northern Light Beacon Health, the population health and accountable care member of Northern Light Health, formerly known as Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems (EMHS). This partnership will help the statewide healthcare system enhance care coordination for providers, care teams and patients throughout Maine.

Northern Light Health’s system includes nine hospitals with locations throughout the state, as well as ambulatory care centers, long-term care facilities, and home care and hospice agencies. With the PatientPing platform, Beacon Health’s specialized nurse care managers are able to access and share patient information, both inside and outside Northern Light Health’s system, through Pings—real-time notifications when a patient receives care—and Stories—important patient context at the point of care.

Beacon Health, one of Medicare’s original Pioneer Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), continues to lead the transformation of healthcare throughout the state. A current participant in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, the ACO will benefit from PatientPing’s ability to share ADT (admit-discharge-transfer) alerts from hospitals in real-time and to share critical patient information during transitions of care.
