PatientPing partners with Hackensack Meridian Health to bring care coordination to health care providers in New Jersey

PatientPing, a health technology company that connects providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care, announced today that it has partnered with Hackensack Meridian Health in New Jersey, marking PatientPing’s seventh state where it’s achieving higher quality care through better patient care coordination. This partnership with New Jersey’s most integrated and comprehensive health care system will ultimately encompass full data sharing across all of Hackensack Meridian Health’s 13 hospitals, meaning that providers in the state will be able to see where patients are admitted, discharged or transferred to/from a Hackensack Meridian Health Hospital.

“Hackensack Meridian Health is dedicated to providing well-orchestrated, quality care to our patients,” said Patrick Young, president of Population Health, Hackensack Meridian Health. “Our relationship with PatientPing underscores this commitment by offering a simple yet powerful solution that enables the delivery of coordinated care across our continuum from our hospitals to our outpatient and post-acute facilities.”

PatientPing aims to advance medical information transparency between health care providers by applying its technology to improve patient care. Upon joining PatientPing, providers receive “Pings,” or real-time notifications, whenever their patients receive care at a wide range of facilities in NJ and beyond. At the facility where patients are getting care, providers receive care instructions that include contact information for others on the patient’s care team as well as patient visit histories. By sharing this information in real time, providers are able to apply timely interventions, avoid unnecessary readmissions, and ensure safer care transitions for their patients.
