Personal Health Record (PHR)
Central to Alanté’s spectrum of services is the personal health record (PHR). By using the PHR as the center of patient information, we solve for the communication problems faced in healthcare.
The PHR gives everyone involved in a care plan—the patient, their family, and their PCP—a summary of all physician orders, hospital events, medications, and doctors’ appointments in one accessible location.
Alanté healthcare coordinators help keep PHRs up to date, optimizing the connection between patients and providers.
PHR In Depth
In order to confidently deliver the best care, healthcare providers need access to accurate and up-to-date patient information. The PHR makes this a reality, providing a dynamic, current, and accurate report of each patient’s overall wellness and progress.
Enhancing communication between providers and patients, PHRs promote positive health outcomes with ongoing benefits.
Additionally, Alanté integrates with their many existing EMR systems. The PHR gives providers access to improved metrics for CMS reporting, more efficient billing, comprehensive medical profiles of patients, assistance in managing complex patients, and higher rates of patient adherence. Care coordinators keep the PHR up to date so providers can be confident they’re working with the most accurate patient information available.
Accessible to family members and patients, the PHR also eases the challenge of communicating effectively with family and other providers.
At its core, the PHR streamlines communication, allowing patients and providers with accurate information that often gets siloed with individual care settings. With the PHR, patients:
- Gain access to convenient care
- Experience closer relationships with their doctors
- Receive consistent feedback regarding their health
- Comprehend a holistic view of their health and care plan
- Experience an improved quality of life
The PHR gives families access to real-time, updated information about their loved one’s health. For families, the PHR documents:
- Changes in medications
- Physician orders
- Lab results
- Healthcare appointments
Through more efficient communication, Alanté reduces the risk of adverse events, relieves the stress placed on families, and creates better outcomes for patients.
