“With a shortage of primary care physicians, it is vital that we find lean ways to scale quality health care across large patient populations,” Coelius wrote in her review. “Medivo is building a sophisticated patient panel management toolset that is a significant step towards this goal.”
In comparing the Medivo programs with others, Coelius noted that Medivo’s “data display interface is significantly more intuitive and colorful than other common panel management products, not to mention EMRs.” She also commended the Medivo reports for making it easier for physicians to identify “which patients are not at goal values.”
Additionally, she gave Medivo “likes” for the robustness of its patient-engagement feature and its potential to address the symptom-tracking “workflow integration challenge” prevalent among health care professionals.
And, perhaps most importantly, she noted the Medivo offering is “free.”
