4 Benefits Hospitals & Health Systems are Seeing with PatientPing’s COVID-19 Flag

To help support the provider community amidst these challenging and trying times, we’ve added a COVID-19 flag to our product. Providers across EDs, ERs, hospitals, post-acutes, health plans, ACOs and more can now flag potential COVID-19 patients, in real time, on all patients care encounters across the continuum. Additionally, providers will be able to set up real-time text or email alerts on potential COVID-19 care events. With these real-time insights and notifications, care teams can better collaborate with one another on how to best prepare for, treat, allocate resources towards, and deliver care to COVID-19 patients.

“The flag will certainly help us quickly identify patients and work with our internal screening process.” – PatientPing community member

“We are in some stressful times but it is good to know we are all working together for our patients. I am very happy to see this new Ping COVID-19 Flag and will work on getting it put together for our groups. Thank you for your dedication and hard work!” – PatientPing community member

4 benefits for hospitals & health systems:

  1. Monitor out-of-network presentations:  Monitor and report on out-of-network presentation for patients with COVID-19 for population health while surfacing patients seeking testing and/or care across multiple care settings
  2. Ensure quarantine procedures: Ensure all quarantine procedures are followed and appropriate resources are allocated for patients presenting to the ED who may be positive for COVID-19
  3. Follow up scheduling: Inform any follow up appointment scheduling for COVID-19 patients
  4. Care Management: Triage care management resources appropriately

We hope that we can continue to provide support to our provider community, and those working to keep patients safe during these times. If you’re interested in learning more about how PatientPing can help support your organization, click here.
