Wesley Chapel, FL, United States, 2014/02/03 - The collaborative healthcare solution is recognized for building meaningful communities for patients, their family, and care teams - CareSync.com.
CareSync announced today that they’ve been selected as a finalist in the Community category for the 2014 SXSW Interactive Awards. Highlighting new innovation and trends, the SXSW Interactive Awards celebrate solutions that push the boundaries of what’s possible in digital content. In the community category, the finalists are recognized for their products that change the way people connect and interact with each other.
“We are honored to be recognized by SXSW, and humbled to be among this group of amazing organizations focused on building digital communities,” said Travis Bond, CEO of CareSync. “The CareSync platform was built around the concept of community, giving patients, their family, and care teams access to important medical information, and collaborative tools to manage and selectively share it with the community they build. The opportunity has come for people to manage their health like great companies manage their customers, which means accurate data and tools to collaborate around it whenever and wherever.”
Just last month, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that 79% of patients want to share information and collaborate with spouses, family members, and friends to make healthcare decisions, but limitations with hospital and doctor systems, coupled with strict regulations stifle the ability to effectively include these care partners.
The CareSync approach has completely shifted how this is done, combining web and mobile applications with comprehensive managed services to facilitate building private social networks where the patients, family & friends, caregivers, providers, and patient advocates work as a community to coordinate care, access and share important information, provide social support and reinforcement, and create increased levels of accountability and overall engagement in managing and improving health.
CareSync (caresync.com) is a patient-centered engagement platform that solves the communication problems in healthcare. Combining web & mobile applications, comprehensive medical record services, and enterprise solutions CareSync facilitates real-time communication between patients, care teams, and providers. Built with medical databases, the platform empowers patients to securely & selectively share their information as structured data with families, care teams, and healthcare providers.
