SAN FRANCISCO, FEB. 07, 2023 - Memora Health, the leading intelligent platform for virtual care delivery and complex care management, today announced a partnership with Virtua Health, the largest health system in South Jersey, to streamline care delivery and improve the patient experience. The partnership will leverage Memora’s clinical intelligence platform across specialties to automate clinicians’ routine care tasks and streamline care management operations with the goal of removing unnecessary barriers and making it easier for patients to connect with their care teams.
“We’re proud to partner with Virtua Health to further the system’s mission to streamline the care journey for both providers and patients,” said Manav Sevak, co-founder and CEO of Memora Health. “Our platform is designed to simplify complex care delivery in order to allow care teams to engage existing patients and support more patients, both inside and outside of hospital walls.”
Memora’s platform simplifies complex care delivery for patients and their providers by automating care journeys. The platform provides 24/7, two-way communications with patients around their care, and intelligently triages patient questions and clinical concerns to the appropriate care team members. Seamless integration with Epic's EHR allows Memora's automated platform to capture and log vital patient data from every interaction, keeping providers up to date and enabling coordination and collaboration among care team members. This partnership will enable clinicians and providers at Virtua Health to automate tasks that they would normally complete manually so they can prioritize the most critical patient needs.
“At Virtua Health, we continually strive to create patient experiences that are easy to navigate, informative, and built on trust. Memora has the tools to help us ensure a first-class experience by answering patients’ questions and guiding them each step of the way,” said Tarun Kapoor, MD, MBA, senior vice president and chief digital transformation officer at Virtua Health.
“In-turn, Memora empowers our clinical and support teams by resolving straightforward patient concerns and elevating those that require a human touch. Everyone benefits,” added Jennifer Khelil, DO, MBA, senior vice president and chief medical officer at Virtua Health.
The enterprise-wide implementation will begin with care programs for colonoscopy procedures, specialty pharmacy, and congestive heart failure, with expansion to additional programs by the end of the year. Virtua Health’s service portfolio includes five hospitals, 25 primary care practices, seven urgent care locations, and 350 facilities/campuses in all.
