Developer organizations share solutions with Allscripts to solve unique challenges in serving diverse patient populations
The challenge winner, Patient Orator, has created an easy way for patients and providers to address bias and health inequities by bridging the communication gap between patients and their health teams and facilitating meaningful conversations using technology. Its team of experts has standardized how patients identify their health concerns, care preferences, and social needs through its HIPAA-compliant mobile app. The organization is also aligning high-risk individuals with unmet socioeconomic and medical needs to social care organizations and healthcare providers to improve patient and community engagement, leveraging technology to improve health outcomes.
“Patient Orator was created by underserved people for underserved communities and is designed to make it easier for historically marginalized groups to gain access to needed resources and to help empower the voices of the unheard,” said Kistein Monkhouse, MPA, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Patient Orator. “We are so grateful that Allscripts acknowledges how important advancing health equity is and want to thank the company for the opportunity to share our solutions with care providers across the continuum of care.”
