Press Release · April 8, 2019
BOSTON — par8o, a leader in physician referral management solutions, and AdventHealth, one of the nation’s largest faith-based health care systems, are announcing the launch of the par8o platform to create better care coordination and enhance the consumer experience through more effective referral management across the health system’s network of care.
“We are working throughout AdventHealth to more deeply engage the consumer by providing solutions that help them be connected to their health journey,“ said Duncan Grodack, senior vice president of AdventHealth and chief information officer for its hospitals across Florida. “Part of the transformation to a more consumer-focused system is meaningfully connecting them to our providers and services throughout the system, and par8o acts as a centralized mechanism to do that.”
Through the partnership, par8o will be AdventHealth’s referral management system across its employed and affiliated provider groups. par8o’s deployment will include a provider directory, integrations with AdventHealth’s electronic medical record systems and integrations with other systems used by the organization’s member experience centers.
In addition, consumers will benefit from more seamless transitions between care settings and referrals to appropriate providers across the AdventHealth network, based on important variables such as location, quality, insurance, specialty and network participation. In many cases, referral coordinators will be able to query real-time appointment availability when making patient referrals and schedule appointments directly into AdventHealth’s scheduling system from par8o.
“We are proud to partner with AdventHealth to improve care coordination and the consumer experience,” said Dr. Daniel Palestrant, CEO of par8o. “par8o believes that directly engaging and empowering the frontline and referral center staff across AdventHealth’s network is the best way to maintain data fidelity and improve network performance.”
