A First for the Industry, ZipPlus Gives Health Systems the Flexibility to Build and Launch Nearly Any Virtual Care Service
Minneapolis, MN – April 16th, 2019 — Zipnosis, a leading virtual care software company, today launched ZipPlus, a services and tech enablement program that creates a multi-year, integrated virtual care roadmap for health systems using Zipnosis’ virtual care chassis while leveraging 10 years of virtual care leadership and experience.
“We continue to hear from our health system customers that virtual care deployment is narrow and integration is a challenge and in many cases prohibiting widespread adoption,” said Jon Pearce, CEO, Zipnosis.
“ZipPlus breaks down these barriers in two ways. The first barrier is technology. Within the ZipPlus program, we can fully integrate the patient and provider experience via FHIR or API’s into Epic, Cerner and Athena. The second barrier is an aligned strategy for virtualizing care. With ZipPlus, Zipnosis and our partners sit down to create a multi-year roadmap for clinical business lines, such as behavioral health, post-surgical follow-up, travel medicine, hypertension – or any service using our powerful virtual care technology platform as the foundation. These unique roadmap partnerships are truly a first for the industry and position us well as the undisputed standard in virtual care.”
Research from Zipnosis’s recent benchmark report shows that health systems are not fully realizing the benefits of virtual care as they struggle to overcome disparate technologies that are designed without the patient at the center and implemented without provider workflow and integration considerations. Specifically, 54 percent of health systems say they expect integrating virtual care with existing technology solutions to be a challenge and 61 percent expect roadblocks when it comes to gaining provider acceptance. That’s in addition to the 64 percent who report that patient utilization has been a challenge since deploying their virtual care solution.
ZipPlus directly addresses these challenges by combining Zipnosis’ leading edge technology with unparalleled consultative support. “We’re leading the transition from siloed, cumbersome telemedicine, into integrated value-driven virtual care. ZipPlus will accelerate our partner’s success in building their digital front door,” added Pearce.
