Xealth, the leading platform for scaling digital health, today announced that it has joined Epic‘s App Orchard online marketplace. This integration enables health care organizations running on Epic to utilize the Xealth platform natively within the electronic health record (EHR), streamlining provider workflow and simplifying access to digital health assets.
As health care organizations turn to digital health tools to supplement care plans by delivering patient education, digital programs, and device monitoring, they require a way to simply and securely manage these programs from within the provider workflow. Having Xealth’s platform available via the App Orchard helps clinicians quickly incorporate this functionality, so they can prescribe and monitor digital health content, apps, devices and services to patients’ desktop and mobile devices. Xealth also delivers analytics to inform program success and allow for evaluation and optimization of digital health programs.
“Xealth drives engagement and utilization of digital health tools. By integrating digital solutions into the clinician workflow within the EHR, we make it easy for clinicians to both order and monitor engagement with the digital tools that can ultimately help deliver the best results,” said Mike McSherry, chief executive officer of Xealth. “With Xealth’s presence in the App Orchard, health care organizations will be able to easily launch new digital health programs and understand their impact faster and more completely than ever before.”
Xealth powers more than 30 digital health solutions, connecting patients with educational content, transportation, meal delivery, e-commerce product recommendations and other services needed to improve health outcomes. Monitoring and analytics capabilities assist health care organizations in determining which digital health strategies are working and how to optimize results. Originally incubated and launched at Providence St. Joseph Health in 2017, Xealth works with Atrium Health, Cleveland Clinic, Duke Health, UPMC and other leading health systems.
Xealth is a platform for digital health that enables health systems to easily organize, integrate, deploy and activate digital health tools for measurable clinical and financial results. Through the secure Xealth platform, clinicians can find and order the right digital health tools and programs for patients direct from the EHR workflow, send these digital health orders to the patient’s smartphone or computer, and then monitor patient engagement and analyze the effects of more engaged patients. Xealth spun out of Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH) in 2017, and investors include McKesson Ventures, Novartis, Philips, and ResMed as well as Atrium Health, Cleveland Clinic, Memorial Care Innovation Fund, Providence Ventures, UPMC and the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Health Network.
