CINCINNATI, OHIO—With the goal of reducing readmissions and improving patient care, the regional health information exchange serving Maryland and the District of Columbia has selected Doc Halo as the secure texting vendor of choice for the State of Maryland.

Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) is centralizing secure clinical communication to better coordinate care between the hospital and ambulatory settings. The Doc Halo clinical communication platform will allow quick collaboration by connecting authenticated users from hospitals and long-term care facilities across the state with one community-based directory.

Doc Halo’s domain expertise in healthcare has enabled the development of healthcare-specific features that solve the industry’s unique communication challenges. In addition to secure texting, Doc Halo was selected for its capabilities for future integrations for CRISP, including automating admissions and discharge notifications.

“We are excited to leverage our technology to help the State of Maryland improve patient outcomes,” says Jon Jansen, Chief Integration Officer for Doc Halo. “Having a health information exchange at the center of a project like this is a great example of collaboration and care coordination.”
