Mountain View, California, UNITED STATES

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, and Updox, an all-in-one healthcare collaboration platform, today announced a major update to its partnership that gives practices using DrChrono’s EHR access to Updox’s full collaboration suite. The Updox platform allows DrChrono providers to consolidate administrative tasks, patient engagement initiatives and provider communications.

“We are excited to make our full collaboration platform now available to DrChrono customers,” said Michael Morgan, CEO of Updox.  “They are tech savvy practitioners who understand the power of mobile platforms to enhance engagement and create the best possible patient experience. We’re excited to bring together what used to take several apps into one solution that eliminates multiple log-ins and makes care more efficient.” 

Now, by accessing the Updox app through DrChrono’s Healthcare App Directory, practices can eliminate staff fatigue associated with manual faxing, printing and scanning, phone tag with patients and providers, and the patchwork process of jumping between multiple systems to execute on daily tasks.

Updox’s communication platform within DrChrono’s App Directory includes features such as document editing, one-click provider signature, tags and queues for easy triage and prioritization, and inbound/outbound fax.  It also includes engagement tools such as secure text messaging, SMS Quicksend, broadcast messaging and will soon include video chat.  The platform includes a HIPAA-compliant inbox to manage all tasks, as well as an internal chat solution for staff and providers.

"Having all this functionality, including faxes, secure texts and reminders, inside a single application is the biggest reason we selected Updox for our practice,” said Shanice Carmenate, patient care coordinator for Synergy Naples, a DrChrono customer. “The organization and efficiency Updox offers was immediately clear. This is a great opportunity for DrChrono practices to replace the multiple systems they are using with one product that has so many options and is integrated with the EHR.” 

“We are expanding this relationship with Updox because it offers our customers a very powerful collaboration platform to better communicate with patients and improve efficiency for their staff,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono.  “Our Healthcare App Directory offers a wide variety of apps to help medical practices incorporate the best technology into their business, and we believe Updox is a great example of using technology to run practices more smoothly.”
