Elmhurst, Illinois, March 24, 2020 – To help healthcare organizations stay connected with their patients and educate them about the Coronavirus through this critical time, PatientBond is offering its digital engagement services at no cost.
For the next several months, PatientBond will manage a weekly email campaign on behalf of participating healthcare organizations with patient education on preventing, detecting and treating COVID-19.
Providers have two options: 1) Use PatientBond’s proposed content; or 2) Provide PatientBond with the healthcare organization’s own content to be formatted to template communications. Emails will be branded with the participating provider’s logo, contact information and other customizable features. PatientBond will also provide a two-way, interactive text messaging capability for virtual triage.
Importantly, PatientBond will offer these capabilities at no cost, with no further obligation, to healthcare organizations until June 2020.
“There is a lot of uncertainty regarding COVID-19 among patients and providers, and healthcare organizations are working at capacity to manage through this challenge.” stated Anurag Juneja, Chief Executive Officer. “PatientBond wants to be a high value solution that promotes patient care, maintains a connection between providers and patients beyond the practice and relieves provider staff resources.
