HealthTap unveils its Health Operating System for healthcare facilities

HealthTap Hopes

HealthTap’s Health Operating System (HOPES) is now available for hospitals, clinics, and community-based programs around the world, enabling healthcare providers to manage the care for patient populations efficiently and cost-effectively.

HealthTap HOPES links the entire continuum of care to an individual patient’s Personal Health Record.The company is also partnering with New Zealand’s Waikato District Health Board (DHB) to “virtualize healthcare” by providing immediate access to New Zealand-based health service. This service is available from any mobile device or web-based interface for the more than one million people within Waikato’s population base as a tertiary referrals center. The partnership is expected to create “fundamental improvements” in clinical service delivery to the population through enhanced care and service, advanced health education, seamless medical communications, and advanced clinical engagement tools.

HealthTap HOPES links the entire continuum of care to an individual patient’s Personal Health Record (PHR) which patients can then share with doctors (if they choose to do so). The solution is being integrated with existing systems and services, including the Hospital EMR systems and current primary care Practice Management Systems, to provide “everything needed to create a seamless virtual healthcare environment” for patients, clinicians, and administrators. The HIPAA-compliant HOPES service includes apps for Health Content, Secure Communications, Services, Meds and Labs, Engagement, Analytics and Administration.

“For the past five years, we’ve worked with hundreds of millions of people and tens of thousands of doctors to create and perfect the first-of-its-kind query-to-cure experience for managing health from any mobile device or personal computer,” says Ron Gutman, founder and CEO of HealthTap. “Now, for the first time, our engineering, design, and product teams have taken this wealth of experience and proprietary knowledge and made them available to health services, hospitals, and clinics globally in an easy-to-install Health Operating System that does not require any software or hardware installation.”
