CareCloud Corporation and ZocDoc, Inc. Announce Partnership to Address Growing Challenges Facing U.S. Physician Practices and their Patients
Oct 29 13
CareCloud Corporation and ZocDoc, Inc. announced a partnership in which ZocDoc will fully integrate into CareCloud's platform via APIs. As a result, CareCloud practices using ZocDoc will have a more seamless experience in allowing patients to instantly book appointments online via ZocDoc.com or the free ZocDoc mobile apps. This new capability, available in the coming months, will help these two leading services' joint clients achieve greater efficiency and revenue, while ultimately improving their patients' experience and access to care. This partnership addresses a few growing concerns, the first of which is regarding a potential shortage of available physicians in coming years, exacerbated by the arrival of millions of newly insured patients associated with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The May 2013 Practice Profitability Index (PPI), which surveyed more than 5,000 U.S. physician practices regarding issues impacting the financial and operational health of their practices, revealed that 48% of participating physicians lack the resources to accept these new patients created under the ACA. In addition to new challenges brought about by the ACA, physicians are frustrated with an increasingly fragmented health IT landscape, and they are demanding more integrated solutions to address their practices' needs. Health technology companies have an opportunity to collaborate and provide a more dynamic and unified experience for their clients, delivering support that enables physicians to successfully run their practices and focus on providing quality care for their patients.
