Healthcare platform acquires SecurePass hardware and software suite
Dynamic Health Strategies LLC, a healthcare platform for employers, health plans, patients and healthcare providers, has acquired Connect, a patient information network and suite of healthcare software and hardware products known as SecurePass, from Ohio-based CrossChx Inc., according to a press release.
The DHS SecurePass app gives patients the ability to refer to their health data as needed and check in for appointments via the SecurePass kiosk, biometric reader or website, speeding up the registration process and eliminating the need to provide manual and repetitive information through paper forms.
"Any physician office, clinic or hospital can access patients' information from a DHS Group website using the SecurePass app," CEO Jim Pritchett said in the press release. "Whether registration is via kiosk, key entry or biometric scanner, the patient's identity is protected and the process is quick and easy. With SecurePass, DHS Group elegantly links patients' key data with hospitals and healthcare providers. Furthermore, SecurePass identifies duplicate medical records, helps protect against medical identity theft, transfers patient information between departments, sends appointment reminders and more."
For greater connectivity and expanded offerings, hospitals can use SecurePass in conjunction with employers who use DHS Group's HealthSpective platform, an employer wellness and benefits system. By linking with HealthSpective, health systems can find and attract employers and clients for direct contracting purposes.
