BroadReach Group, a health technology and social enterprise firm has announced its partnership with the recently launched Microsoft Cloud for healthcare through its integrated cloud platform for population health management, Vantage.
BroadReach, in its announcement on Monday, said it sees the future for healthcare where employees can be individually empowered and supported to be more efficient and effective, saving more lives across the health ecosystem.
According to John Sargent, co-founder of BroadReach Group, a key issue that Microsoft Teams integration addresses are the need for greater, quicker collaboration to help staff be more effective.
“Our partnership personifies our motto to empower action and change lives. Vantage is the future of how the healthcare industry will work. Through its integration with Microsoft Teams, we combine the collaborative power of Teams with Vantage’s world-class management decision support and workflow tools, supporting the industry where they work and how they work.
“The breakthrough is in its ability to get teams of co-workers to collaborate in real-time wherever they are in the world so that they can make decisions and take action when it matters most. Vantage democratizes AI-enabled predictive and prescriptive management recommendations and distributes targeted workflows to specific employees using natural language (plain English) via Microsoft Teams, while the chatbot – Vantage Assistant – can join a meeting or Microsoft Teams Chat to respond to key questions as a virtual team member,” Sargent disclosed.
Also commenting on the partnership, Chris LeGrand, group chief executive officer, BroadReach Group, said the company’s strategic partnership with Microsoft will enable the social enterprise firm to advance the mission to harness health technology and innovation that empowers human action.
“Our mission is to harness health technology and innovation that empowers human action. Through our partnership with Microsoft, we are able to advance this mission through tech-enabled solutions that help payers, providers and health systems optimize health outcomes and resources by enabling timely and informed action,” he concluded.
