Leawood, Kan.-based TransforMED, a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) software provider, and Atlanta-based RelayHealth, a clinical, financial, and administrative health care connectivity provider, announced a strategic alliance to offer solutions that will improve healthcare delivery within the PCMH model of care.

Recognizing that the alignment of people, processes and technology is essential to the PCMH model, TransforMED and RelayHealth are committed to helping primary care practices implement patient-centered technology to address the complex communication needs of patients, doctors, payors and pharmacies. RelayHealth and TransforMED offer the most comprehensive and experienced support on the market to practices working to become patient-centered medical homes, while also helping them streamline time-consuming administrative tasks, such as appointment scheduling and prescription fill requests.

TransforMED will support providers as they work to achieve PCMH accreditation through hands-on facilitation, team-building and collaborative retreats, and tailored training to help practices measurably improve in three critical areas: patient care, financial sustainability, and increased physician and staff satisfaction. RelayHealth’s web-based solutions provide a secure and interoperable platform to support the developing HIT infrastructure necessary to fundamentally change the delivery of care going forward.
