Vidyo Integrates with Allscripts FollowMyHealth Patient Engagement Platform

Vidyo, an integrated video collaboration technology leader, announced Tuesday that Allscripts — an agnostic provider of electronic healthcare record technology — has chosen the platform to power virtual consultations directly embedded into the FollowMyHealth patient portal.

The on demand video visits can be launched directly from the patient portal workflow, simplifying remote consultations between physicians and patients.

“Allscripts strives to continually provide a fully engaged patient platform, giving patients and their families the ability to stay connected to their physicians, allowing them to be active contributors to their care,” said Kim South, General Manager of Allscripts. “Vidyo’s integrated video collaboration platform embedded into the Allscripts FollowMyHealth workflow is the ideal solution for patients and physicians to conveniently connect face-to-face over the web or our mobile app.”

According to IDC, “patient convenience is becoming more critical as they take on more financial accountability and are demanding levels of service they experience in other industries.”* Vidyo’s ability to tightly integrate into EHR workflows to provide high-quality remote consultations creates greater accessibility and increased communication for physicians and patients. The Vidyo integration with FollowMyHealth streamlines collaboration, improves patient care and satisfaction, and provides better health outcomes.

“We are thrilled to announce our integration with Allscripts’ FollowMyHealth patient engagement platform,” said Vidyo CEO Eran Westman. “Vidyo helps create a system of connected care that is more accessible to more people, and is highly interoperable with any EHR system and patient portal. Vidyo’s technology is easily embedded into any application in order to make engagement continuous and simplify the widespread clinical adoption of telehealth.”
