DALLAS and SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – February 18, 2020: Beaumont Health, Michigan’s largest health care system, has contracted with Blockit Inc., a leader in digital care coordination. Blockit will offer provider referral and online patient self-scheduling solutions for patients served throughout Beaumont’s extensive care delivery system. Blockit’s solution facilitates patient referrals, helping ensure patients are appropriately followed up on to help patients stay healthy.
“Providers like Beaumont work tirelessly to coordinate their patients’ care and arrange appointments, generally through countless phone calls, faxes and even email,” said Blockit CEO, Jake McCarley. “Our technology helps put an end to those manual processes, allowing them to not only focus more on their patients’ health, but to also dramatically improve the delivery of care.” “Our patients have asked for the ability to schedule follow-up appointments, on the spot, regardless of what electronic health record system their health care provider uses.” — CAROLYN WILSON, COO, BEAUMONT HEALTH Blockit’s platform has served more than two million patients since its founding two years ago. Its award-winning platform will enable Beaumont to simplify care coordination and improve patient access through digital, seamless scheduling that navigates patients from one appointment to the next while keeping health care providers “in the loop”.
“It is important for Beaumont to offer our patients a continuum of care,” Beaumont Health Chief Operating Officer Carolyn Wilson said. “Our patients are at the center of everything we do. And, our patients have asked for the ability to schedule follow-up appointments, on the spot, regardless of what electronic health record system their health care provider uses.”
Created by technology and health care experts, Blockit’s solution is the only platform that is truly integrated across an entire health system, providing new visibility and insights into a patient’s care journey.
