CHICAGO, IL – January 5 2022 – PatientIQ, a leading healthcare technology company deriving actionable insights from patient outcomes data at scale, today announced the implementation of its platform by American Orthopedic Partners (AOP), a national orthopedic practice headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. AOP is leveraging the platform to unify patient data across the enterprise and to identify clinical quality improvements that impact care.
The implementation of PatientIQ comes from a leadership-driven strategy to create a database for the collection of patient-reported outcome scores. Despite data being collected on separate electronic health record (EHR) systems across the physician-owned enterprise, AOP will gain access to unified patient health information through PatientIQ. AOP will also have access to educational video content and patient satisfaction surveys to inform its value-based care initiatives.
“As we continue to grow and partner with new orthopedic practices, we will use our patient-reported outcome data to demonstrate clinical excellence across our practice and providers when compared to national averages,” said Ted Schlegel, MD, Chief Medical Officer at American Orthopedic Partners. “Now that we are gathering and assessing this data, we can use it to validate our clinical treatment programs and continue to hold ourselves to the highest standard that our patients know to expect from us.”
American Orthopedic Partners offers orthopedists an opportunity to maintain local control, collaborate on national initiatives, and access resources to grow their practices. With clinics in the West, Midwest, and Northeastern United States, AOP uses a physician-owned partnership model that enables AOP to fuel value creation, clinical innovation, and orthopedic excellence.
“Patient data is the most valuable asset a practice has — so long as they have the tools to be able to leverage that data to make informed decisions,” said Matthew Gitelis, CEO, PatientIQ. “We are impressed with AOP’s dedication to providing value to its practice partners, and we’re proud to come alongside them to make this a seamless and successful process.”
The addition of AOP to PatientIQ’s customer portfolio follows news of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons selecting PatientIQ to power its Fracture & Trauma Registry and continues the healthcare technology company’s fast-growing adoption within orthopedic care. The platform has onboarded over 1,500 orthopedic surgeons in the last six months alone.
