July 12, 2016

CINCINNATI — PatientPoint, the trusted leader in patient education and engagement at the point of care, was honored with two golds, a silver and a merit award in the 2016 Spring Digital Health Awards. PatientPoint joins CVS Health and Johns Hopkins Medicine as the only three organizations to have multiple gold medal entries.

The PatientPoint Interactive Exam Room Program impressed the judging panel, earning gold awards for primary care and dermatology and a silver award for oncology in the Mobile Digital Health Resources category. PatientPoint also earned a merit award for its product showcase website in the Web-based Digital Health category.

PatientPoint Interact is a digital touchscreen device that provides specialty education to patients in the exam room based on their treatment phase from diagnosis to remission/maintenance. The multimedia education includes videos and 3D anatomical models that have revolutionized how patients communicate with their physicians about a disease and treatment options.

"PatientPoint was the first to introduce a digital platform in the exam room in 2012, and we continue to lead point-of-care innovation in this increasingly digital world," said Tom McGuinness, chief executive officer, PatientPoint. "This recognition showcases our commitment to patient education by providing digital resources that enhance the patient-physician discussion and deliver meaningful results."

The Digital Health Awards is organized by the Health Information Resource CenterSM (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields. Entries are judged by a panel of health technology professionals based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted health audience and overall quality.
