Medical Integration Precepts Part III
Do You Know How to Securely Integrate Provider Technology and Fitness Center Systems? We Do.
Involving physicians and other providers through the establishment of a robust and active Medical Advisory Committee, or MAC, was the first step towards building your medically integrated fitness offerings. Integrating provider technology and fitness center business systems is the next step towards creating a medically integrated fitness center.
Many hospital-based fitness centers operate independently from local, independent providers, hospital-based providers and other key referral sources such as physical therapists. This disconnect means there is no structured process to receive patient referrals or to share patient progress with referring providers.
Integrating technologies ensures physician referrals are effectively captured. Prescriptive fitness participants don’t “fall through the cracks,” and most importantly, their progress is securely and safely tracked and reported via HIPAA-compliant channels.
Offering comprehensive fitness assessments is the next step towards building a medically integrated fitness center. Stay tuned for our next blog post, to learn more about the importance of gathering this baseline information.
