St. Joseph’s Health Enhances Provider Communications with careMESH’s Healthcare Directory and User-Friendly Messaging Services

Reston, VA, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- careMESH, a provider data company focused on enabling seamless communication with any healthcare provider nationwide, today announced that it has implemented its services with New Jersey-based St. Joseph’s Health. careMESH services were selected to significantly expand the health system’s clinical communications reach to all community physicians, including digital access to electronic medical records.

St. Joseph’s Health, a world-class hospital and healthcare network, is one of the country's leading clinical teaching and academic centers, supported by over 5,000 leading and renowned physicians, nurses, and clinicians. The organization uses careMESH CONNECT messaging services, powered by its SEARCH national provider directory, to securely deliver admission and discharge summaries to primary care providers.

Using careMESH, St. Joseph’s will focus on several key areas, including:

  • Streamlining external communications with community physicians
  • Reducing reliance on fax to share clinical information
  • Ensuring all recipients have flexible options to receive and use clinical information to support patient treatment

“We are excited about the collaboration and possibilities with careMESH,” said Beth J. Kushner, DO, Chief Medical Information Officer and emergency medicine physician at St. Joseph's Health. “This new system allows us to send clinical communications from our Cerner electronic health record to share data and deliver time-sensitive care summaries, lab results, and medical records to any provider designated by our patients. The providers know they can rely on timely and accurate information to help them deliver the best possible care.”

Added Catherine Thomas, careMESH Vice President of Customer Success: “Establishing a communications infrastructure that effectively shares the right patient information with the right providers in the right way is challenging. careMESH messaging services, made possible through our provider data platform, provide St. Joseph’s with a cost-effective platform to deliver information across the community and relieve manual effort from their clinical and IT teams so that they can focus on the immediate needs of patient care.”
