Zocdoc Announces New API-based EHR Integration with Allscripts®
NEW YORK, NY– October 17, 2017 – Today, Zocdoc announced a new integration with Allscripts, a leading Healthcare IT provider. The solution, now offered through Zocdoc’s participation as an Integrator in the Allscripts Developer Program, will enable a connection via API between Zocdoc’s patient-friendly online scheduling platform and Allscripts clinical scheduling software. The integration will improve real-time booking for patients through Zocdoc and allows offices to enjoy synced schedules and appointment information. The integration is available for new and existing practices using both Zocdoc and Allscripts.
“At Zocdoc, we believe in creating open, interoperable technology that provides value for patients, providers, and the greater healthcare industry,” said Joaquin Gamboa, Chief Legal Officer, Head of New Business and Government Affairs at Zocdoc. “We’re proud to work with Allscripts to help physicians maximize their time, create efficiencies for office staff, improve access, and deliver the simple, connected experience patients expect and deserve.”
Zocdoc’s digital marketplace surfaces unused appointment inventory in real-time, dramatically improving patients’ access to care. According to a recent Merritt Hawkins survey, the average wait to see a new primary care physician is 24.1 days. The typical Zocdoc appointment takes place in under 24 hours.
“From independent physicians to large health systems, all providers need EHRs that are complete, connected, and tailored to their needs,” said Allscripts General Manager, Open Business Unit, Tina Joros. “We’re pleased to work with Zocdoc to help streamline booking for innovative practices across the US.”
With this new integration, Zocdoc continues to streamline experiences for patients throughout their medical journey. Over the last decade, Zocdoc has introduced services built to solve patient problems and improve access throughout the patient experience, including physician search, digital medical forms and appointment reminders. For providers, this means greater efficiency in appointment scheduling and more satisfied new patients.
Zocdoc is the tech company at the beginning of a better healthcare experience. Each month, millions of patients use Zocdoc to find in-network neighborhood doctors, instantly book appointments online, see what other real patients have to say, get reminders for upcoming appointments and preventive checkups, fill out their paperwork online, and more. With a mission to give power to the patient, Zocdoc’s online marketplace delivers the accessible and simple experience patients expect and deserve. Zocdoc is free for patients and available across the United States via Zocdoc.com or the Zocdoc app for iPhone and Android.
