The two organizations have partnered to build a robust healthcare delivery resource directory for Houston Methodist and leverage it to power a new strategy for identifying, scheduling and coordinating the right care experience.

Serving millions of patients across south Texas through a network of six hospitals and more than 1,890 physicians, Houston Methodist’s mission is passionately focused on improving the health of the people and communities it serves, and the health system is ambitiously leading the nation with their efforts to improve patient access through innovation.

To enhance both patient and provider experience, Houston Methodist started by leveraging Blockit’s referral solution to quickly and seamlessly integrate both employed and affiliated provider’s scheduling availability and workflow into one easy to use experience. Quick success from this phase led to significant improvements in reducing leakage and therefore high patient follow through while also improving patient and provider satisfaction.

Blockit’s sophisticated data management combined with proprietary EMR integration strength allows patient data and appointments to be normalized for improved user experience while also leveraging existing healthcare infrastructure and workflows.

“We are excited to partner with Blockit on these innovative access strategies. These tools will allow our patients faster access to our services wherever and whenever they want them,” said Cathy Easter, Senior Vice President and CEO at Houston Methodist.

In collaboration with Blockit, Houston Methodist has launched online appointment scheduling, referral management, lab and imaging scheduling solutions powered by the Blockit platform. Houston Methodist will deliver on its vision to lead healthcare innovation that improves patient care.

Through Blockit’s sophisticated integration with multiple underlying electronic health record systems, Houston Methodist is now able to provide a convenient and highly effective consumer scheduling and care coordination experience for both new and existing patients completely within existing health system workflows.

“Especially considering Houston Methodist leadership in innovating healthcare, it is a real honor for Blockit to be recognized by Houston Methodist as a strategic partner,” said Jake McCarley, CEO of Blockit. “We’re excited for the promise of our platform to be realized by Houston Methodist for their patients.”
