Keona Health, creators of automated patient communication software, announced their role in the Primary Care Office of the Future.
The Primary Care Office of the Future is a simulation of primary care transformations that work. It runs from May 20 – May 30 in Hartford, Connecticut. Emerging companies were selected based on having already demonstrated the ability to improve the workflow of primary care.
In practices using the Online Health Advice application, patients can go to the clinic’s website, patient portal, or call in to complete their health history through an intelligent, automated interview process. The practice responds back to patients with recommendation and education as soon as possible.
“We are honored to be selected for this simulation,” said Oakkar Oakkar, CEO of Keona Health. “Primary care doctors are expected to deliver better care to more people with less. The primary care office of the future will deliver evidence-based guidance to the patient in a fraction of the time, helping practices filter through the noise of phone calls to determine urgency and provide optimal care. Keona Health has already solved an important piece of that puzzle.”
