Hematology and Oncology Consultants, P.A. first partner to integrate branded patient portal, shifting their new patient intake process online

Seattle, WA and Orlando, FL, October 28, 2010 – Navigating Cancer introduces a white label version of their online care management tools to provide oncology clinics with a turnkey, branded and seamless patient portal. By shifting the patient intake process online, clinics can save money by improving the efficiency of the sign up process and freeing up administrative staff resources.

One of Orlando’s premier cancer clinics, Hematology and Oncology Consultants, P.A., is the first partner of six planned launches this year to integrate the branded patient portal into their website.

Patients can register from the comfort of home prior to their first appointment, saving them time spent in the waiting room. Navigating Cancer’s platform walks patients through the intake process, ensuring that their medical history is complete, and that any forms required by the clinic have been reviewed and signed.

“We’re saving money and reducing the workload of our staff, but I also like that I have more complete information in a digital format that I can read before patients come into the office. I’m better prepared to provide my patients with the best care” said Dr. Philip Dunn, President of Hematology and Oncology Consultants P.A.

With electronic medical record (EMR) integration, the Navigating Cancer platform enables clinics to qualify for up to $63,750 in incentives per provider for meeting the meaningful use objectives offered by the HITECH Act.

“Eighty-five percent of patients look for health information online, but still rely on their healthcare team as their most trusted resource. With our turnkey solution, clinics can offer their patients a robust package of care management tools and in-depth information under their own brand,” said Gena Cook, CEO of Navigating Cancer.
