Wayne Health, the health care arm of Wayne State University in Detroit, is partnering with Florida digital health solution provider Qure4u to create population health services for patients throughout southeast Michigan.
The partnership will provide Wayne Health with enhanced digital services to improve the patient experience while helping better connect patients with their providers before, during, and after clinic visits.
Among the many services that soon will be available to Wayne Health patients are a streamlined patient portal for on-line scheduling and appointment reminders; telehealth and at-home remote monitoring programs; HIPAA-compliant communication platform between patients and their providers; digital health screenings and more.
Wayne Health is a nonprofit, multi-specialty academic group practice with 400 dedicated physicians and advanced practice providers in 50 medical specialties offering a full spectrum of care, from birth to end-of-life, for individuals and families.
“Our overarching goal is to mitigate health disparities and control chronic condition risk factors in our populations,” says Dr. Phillip Levy, chief innovation officer at Wayne Health. “I believe that the future of medicine lies in the area of community health, to engage people where they live, work and play.
“By enhancing access to medical care and social services, and incorporating convenient digital-health services to improve patient engagement, we are able to improve lives and health outcomes. Our partnership with Qure4U allows us to effectively and efficiently accomplish these goals.”
Dr. Monica Bolbjerg, CEO and founder of Qure4u, says, “We are very excited to begin this new partnership with Wayne Health. The strength of Qure4u is evident throughout our many trusted and collaborative partnerships that inspire innovative healthcare solutions and impact the lives of millions of people.
“Our digital health platform is designed to enhance the entire patient journey by improving workflows and practice efficiency, and enhancing clinical insight. I look forward to helping Wayne Health continue to redefine the delivery of integrated care throughout southeast Michigan.”
