Philadelphia, PA – February 23, 2021 – HealthShare Exchange (HSX), an industry leader in making electronic patient-care information available to the greater Philadelphia healthcare community, and Quil, the digital health company helping people navigate health and care, today announced that Quil has signed on as an HSX MarketStreet™ partner. This partnership enables HealthShare Exchange members to implement the Quil Engage platform and leverage MarketStreet data to offer informed, comprehensive patient care, while giving patients access to guidance, education and tools from providers.
“At Quil, we believe that an educated and engaged patient leads to better outcomes at lower costs, and we are committed to providing patients with access to the digital tools they need to be empowered to take the next best step in their health journeys,” said Carina Edwards, CEO at Quil. “This partnership with HSX’s MarketStreet supports that commitment as it will enable patients, their caregivers and their care teams to access HSX’s real-time data streams and further personalize their care journeys.”
Quil Engage is a digital platform designed to help patients and their caregivers navigate their health and care. Healthcare providers on the Quil Engage platform can guide patients through “prescribed” clinical pathways with personalized digital care plans, step-by-step guidance, education and tools. Clinicians using Quil Engage can monitor how patients are doing at home, gather patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and focus on the highest-value activities.
“Clinicians are striving to deliver the highest quality care, as well as a positive health experience for patients. To achieve this, it is critical that healthcare providers have access to real-time patient data and a means to communicate directly with patients once they are discharged from care facilities,” said Dr. Richard L. Snyder, Executive Vice President, Chief Medical Officer at Independence Blue Cross and Founding Chair of the HealthShare Exchange Board of Trustees. “The combination of HSX MarketStreet’s data resources and the Quil Engage platform’s capabilities enable clinicians to deliver the highest quality care and provide individualized guidance to patients.”
“Real-time data sharing and collaboration between healthcare entities is critical to improving the overall health of our community,” said Martin Lupinetti, President & Chief Executive Officer of HealthShare Exchange. “HSX and HSX MarketStreet is proud to partner with Quil and other innovative companies that are using data to deliver the highest quality care to patients across the entire healthcare continuum.”
