DALLAS and BOISE, Idaho, April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Phynd Technologies, Inc., a leading provider information management vendor, announced a strategic relationship with Healthwise, a trusted provider of patient education for nearly half a century. Healthwise accelerates Phynd's solution as an essential pillar to support health systems' clinical, financial and marketing transformation in an era of consumer-focused healthcare.
Phynd's solution actively consolidates, curates and shares provider information as a single source of truth, a trusted source of high quality, continuously curated profiles. Phynd provides health systems a 360-degree view of providers that are shared with patients, clinical and financial teams to ensure better care and improve the billing process.
Phynd's national directory of more than 4 million provider profiles, merged with the attributes of a health system's unique provider community, is intelligently categorized using Healthwise's taxonomy. The result is the creation of a complete representation of clinical expertise, previously locked in silos inside the health system, but now accessible by patient search, patient engagement, revenue cycle and transitions of care teams.
"Phynd is excited to be bringing Healthwise's world-class taxonomy to both consumers and health care professionals through our Phynd solution," said Tom White, CEO of Phynd. "Enhancing Phynd's robust provider profile management with Healthwise's taxonomy will help health systems' find a doctor, patient access, patient referrals and other processes achieve best-in-class performance."
"Our taxonomy is the result of millions of interactions with clinicians and consumers and understanding how they search for health-related information," said Dave Mink, chief client officer at Healthwise. "We're thrilled to see how Phynd has been able to use the taxonomy, part of Healthwise® Content as a Service, in an innovative way to improve the care experience."
