IT services provider Accenture on Tuesday launched Accenture Intelligent Patient Platform, designed to support the healthcare system.
The platform, which is a suite of integrated cloud-based, analytics-driven technologies, will enable life sciences companies to provide complete awareness of illness and treatments to patients.
Moreover, it allows companies to rapidly deploy precise patient services based on the requirements. The platform is designed to evolve with the addition of new applications aimed at delivering supplementary services to meet patients’ changing needs.
It is built on Salesforce 1 including Salesforce Fullforce Solutions and the Accenture Insights Platform.
The Accenture platform helps
# Patients can start a therapy faster and easily get the help they need to manage their condition;
# Providers can receive increased support in their patient care goals of quality, affordability and engagement;
# Payers can more rapidly get the information they need for reimbursement; and
# Pharmacies can get the correct information they need to fill prescriptions eliminating unnecessary follow-ups with physicians and patients.
“Now companies can have real-time insight into the full patient journey and work across the healthcare system to effect meaningful change in support of the patient,” said Tony Romito, managing director, Accenture Life Sciences.
In July, Accenture has bagged a five-year contract from the Department of Health in England and NHS National Services Scotland to deploy cloud-based NHSmail service.
According to the deal, Accenture will assist in offering secure communication to users of less secure systems such as non-NHS partners and patients. The IT services deal will benefit almost 700,000 health and care workers across the National Health Service (NHS) in England and Scotland.
