PatientPing partners with ACO in Houston

PatientPing, a health technology company that connects providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care, has partnered with Houston Methodist Coordinated Care, an Accountable Care Organization affiliated with Houston Methodist, the company said.

This partnership means that providers throughout Houston and its surrounding communities, as well as across states, will be notified when their patients are admitted, discharged or transferred to/from all eight Houston Methodist hospitals, allowing for timely intervention and overall higher quality care for patients.

PatientPing´s network includes tens of thousands of providers nationwide. In December 2016, PatientPing announced USD 31.6 million funding led by Andreessen Horowitz. PatientPing is rapidly accelerating its nationwide expansion so that any providers who share patients anywhere in the country can coordinate with one another.

Houston Methodist Coordinated Care (HMCC) is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) for Medicare Fee for Service patients.

PatientPing is a Boston-based health technology company that is building a national community of engaged providers who are sharing information, coordinating care, and working together to get patients healthier faster.
