Denver, Colo. (February 6, 2018)—Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals, today announced that its scheduling app is certified by the Allscripts Developer Program. The integration connects Healthgrades market-leading online appointment scheduling solutions with Allscripts clinical scheduling software and will provide real-time booking for patients on Healthgrades.com, automatically syncing schedules and appointment information for providers using Allscripts.
“In order to be relevant and accessible to consumers, hospitals and health systems must provide the ability for patients to schedule appointments beyond their own website,” said Nabeel Meghji, Senior Vice President, Product Management, Healthgrades. “On the backend, when appointment scheduling solutions integrate seamlessly with systems that hospitals and health systems are already using, staff members save time and resources and can connect patients and providers more quickly.”
“We believe making it easier for consumers to find and schedule an appointment with a provider using Allscripts helps us all get a little closer to our vision of a Connected Community of Health.™ We hope Allscripts clients will see this solution as an opportunity to leverage technology in a meaningful way to drive new patient appointments.” Tina Joros, General Manager, Open Business Unit.
This new integration is one of many recent enhancements to the Healthgrades site, which offers simple and convenient ways for millions of consumers each month to find and book an appointment with a doctor. The Healthgrades website now showcases providers top care areas, giving consumers the ability to determine if the provider they are researching is a match based on how frequently they perform a procedure or treat a condition.
