MedStar Health, a non-profit, community-based health system serving the Baltimore/Washington region, has selected Kryptiq's CareManager and Connect IQ Suite in an effort to enhance chronic care management and enable secure online communication with patients.

According to Kryptiq (Hillsboro, Ore.), a provider of healthcare connectivity solutions, its products will allow MedStar to support patients in actively managing their own care by providing them with personal health updates.

Kryptiq contends its CareManager solution will enable MedStar providers to assess the health of patients with chronic conditions and know what treatment and services each patient needs. In addition, Kryptiq's Connect IQ Patient Portal solutions will allow patients to request appointments, access key elements of their medical record, and message with their physicians' offices online, says the company.
