Chicago-based remote patient engagement provider joins national effort dedicated to bridging communication gaps, improving information flow, and empowering the patient experience with health care
Washington, DC, April 9, 2020 — Population Health Alliance (PHA), the industry’s only multi-stakeholder professional and trade association solely focused on population health, today announced that TapCloud (tapcloud.com) has joined the organization as a new member. TapCloud provides a new approach to remote patient engagement and monitoring, connecting patients, caregivers and clinicians in real time to share crucial information that is often unknown or overlooked.
“We are excited to welcome TapCloud’s innovative team to PHA’s family of members and their unique perspective to our work” said Jaan Sidorov MD, President & CEO for the PA Clinical Network at the Pennsylvania Medical Society and President of the Population Health Alliance. “Clear communication and optimized information flow are the digital bedrock of population health management in 2020 and user experience, where TapCloud specializes, is perhaps the most critical piece to get right for patients, providers and payers.” Sidorov added.
“The need for virtual patient care has never been clearer than it is today” said Phil Traylor, CEO at TapCloud. “We are thrilled to engage in the kind of industry collaboration that PHA enables and look forward to working with the thought leaders and diverse membership to continue to improve the lives of patients and reduce the cost of healthcare.”
In recent weeks, TapCloud launched a series of COVID-19 focused solutions to support not only the immediate needs of patient and employee screening and telehealth visits, but the full continuum of virtual treatment and ongoing monitoring of coronavirus cases.
