Marathon Health Releases Enhanced Integration Tools for Onsite Health Clinics

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwire - September 21, 2009) - Marathon Health today announced the release of its Health Engagement System™ V2.8 technology platform that improves clinical workflow and outcomes at employer-based onsite health clinics.

The Health Engagement System (HES) new integration features include:

--  Health history questionnaire that auto-populates the clinical record
    with a full medical history
--  Patient lists for chronic disease and medical risks to facilitate
    outreach programs
--  Patient instructions embedded into the clinical record for easy
    dissemination
--  Flu shot clinic management and documentation
    

"Implementing an integrated clinical technology platform at a worksite health clinic provides assurance to employers that they are offering high-quality care to their employees," said Chris Stuart, MD and medical director for Marathon Health clinics in Minneapolis. "The process driven workflows, problem-oriented medical record, decision support, and integrated patient information, protocols, and patient list management are important tools that support the clinicians so they can focus on coaching and healthcare. The web-based design of the HES makes it easy to audit and review the care decisions and processes documented in the clinical record."

The Health Engagement System™ V2.8 became available to Marathon Health customers September 14, 2009.

"An additional benefit to the integration features in our clinical automation tools is the ability to better identify the health risks and chronic disease in the employee population," said Barbara Swan, MSN, NP-C, Marathon Health chief nursing officer. "Our clinicians can quickly review patient lists based on data in the system and design outreach strategies and programs customized to their specific needs. This capability allows the clinicians to proactively outreach to patients with the highest number of risks or diseases. The population health management features in the system provide employers with carefully documented reporting on health status, participation levels, and financial performance of the health center."
