Brigham Women’s Physician Organization Partners with IKS Health to Modernize the Patient Experience and Improve Clinical Outcomes

Sponsored by Businesswire

Brigham Women’s Physicians Organization (BWPO), a leading global
healthcare provider, today announced its new partnership with IKS
, a premier healthcare solutions organization, to address the
demand for more detailed documentation, enable better patient and
physician engagement, and increase practice efficiency.

Through this partnership, BWPO will begin implementation of IKS’
Scribble services in June 2019. Scribble allows more time for
physician/patient interaction during clinical visits, frees up the
physician schedule for additional patient access and reduces time spent
on administrative tasks—giving doctors more time to care for both
patients and themselves. Leveraging this technology, some physicians can
spend up to 60 percent less time documenting data, saving 1-2 hours per
day, and enabling them to see more patients.

“We are working to identify solutions that allow providers to focus on
taking care of patients,” said BWPO’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jessica
Dudley. “By removing the burden of documentation requirements, IKS’
Scribble program will enable doctors to be more present and engaged with
patients, rather than focusing on the computer.”

“IKS has always been focused on the future of healthcare and worked to
provide quality care to all patients, while reducing administrative
burden,” says Sachin Gupta, founder and CEO of IKS Health. “Working with
Partners HealthCare and BWPO, we believe we’ll see this vision become
reality as we effectively reach and improve even more patient lives
through innovative technology, ensuring all stakeholders in the
healthcare continuum continue to push forward and see quality improve
for both patients and providers.”
