Proliance Surgeons Selects Andor Health

Andor HealthAndor Health has announced that Proliance Surgeons, one of the nation’s largest multispecialty surgical practices, has signed a contract to deploy the ThinkAndor™ mobile care team collaboration platform to make it easier for physicians, nurses and care teams to collaborate across multiple facilities and care settings.

“Proliance Surgeons annually treats more than 650,000 patients at more than 100 care centers in Washington state,” said Mark Barnhart, CEO of Proliance Surgeons. “Given the huge volume of patients we help, every minute of every day counts. ThinkAndor should enable our clinicians and staff to spend less time on unnecessary tasks and have more time for taking care of patients. The system will also proactively notify front-office staff of missing patient information that would result in a schedule delay or procedure cancellation. As a result, we anticipate an improvement in patient and physician satisfaction, as well as a decrease in canceled appointments.”

ThinkAndor delivers critical, context-sensitive intelligence from disparate electronic medical record (EMR) systems across multiple care settings, enabling real-time, mobile clinical team collaboration. ThinkAndor continually surveils all of the signals across these systems, and pushes critical intelligence to providers just in time. Providers will now have a single view of relevant information, regardless of EMR or care setting.

“Andor Health is proud to partner with Proliance Surgeons to improve care team communication and collaboration across its high-volume surgical practice,” said Marlin Hutchens, President of Andor Health. “With ThinkAndor, their physicians and staff can now personalize workflows and messages from EMRs so they receive only the signals they use to provide care, resulting in increased operational efficiency and care capacity.”
