Augmedix Announces Partnership with Medical Advantage
Collaboration will Bring Augmedix’s Solution to Physicians Nationwide – Alleviating Burnout, Increasing Efficiency, and Improving Patient Experience
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Augmedix, a leading tech-enabled service that converts real-time clinician-patient conversations into precise medical documentation, and Medical Advantage, a leading provider of consulting services to improve medical practices’ clinical and financial performance – announced today a partnership to scale the use of Augmedix’s virtual documentation solution to physician groups across the nation.
The Augmedix technology platform enables physicians to attentively care for their patients while the visit is simultaneously documented in real-time. This improves productivity for physicians by shifting the emphasis away from complex documentation and allowing them to focus on what matters most: patient care. Augmedix is compatible with most existing EHR systems and industry workflows, allowing natural conversations between patient and provider to be easily transmitted into records. The tech service represents a natural addition to Medical Advantage’s robust portfolio of services offered to physicians throughout its extensive support network.
“We’re excited to work alongside Medical Advantage to offer a solution that will work within their existing workflows,” said Ian Shakil, founder of Augmedix. “We have a shared goal of alleviating physician burnout and increasing efficiency. Together, I believe Augmedix and Medical Advantage will substantially impact organizations by offering a solution that not only benefits physicians, but also dramatically improves patient-clinician relationships.”
“Across the majority of our EHR optimization engagements with provider practices, we see the traditional process of updating patient notes as a leading cause of frustration and burnout for the office staff,” said Chad Anguilm, vice president Medical Advantage. “We’re excited to launch the relationship with Augmedix and look forward to incorporating their best-in-class solution as we engage clients.”
