LifeBridge Health is adding support for doctor scheduling app Everseat, allowing patients at more than 30 of its practices to book appointments from a smartphone or tablet. Moreover, like ZocDoc does, Everseat’s mobile app also notifies users when someone cancels an appointment and allows them to get that, newly-found time slot.
And that’s just a start; beyond expanding to additional doctors’ offices and practices, LifeBridge Health and Baltimore-based Everseat have also entered into a multi-year development partnership to create potential new technology that would facilitate coordinated patient care among LifeBridge Health providers, including primary care doctors and specialists.
“We have already seen how the Everseat technology enhances communication between patients and their physicians. Now, we are excited to see how this new partnership can build on our existing technology to find new benefits for patients, as well as benefits for a health system and its physicians,” Jeff Peres, CEO and cofounder of Everseat, said in a statement.
Preliminary work includes focus groups with LifeBridge Health doctors who are providing first-hand knowledge and input into how the potential technology might benefit their practices and their patients.
Later this month, Everseat will also be available as a web application so patients can access the app from any Internet connected-device.
In October 2015, athenahealth providers agreed to use Everseat’s doctor booking services.
