Epic adds Healthwise's patient education resources to its App Orchard

Epic approved Healthwise's patient education app for its App Orchard, Healthwise confirmed Feb. 27.

Epic's App Orchard provides an online marketplace for third-party developers to showcase pre-approved reporting, visualization and content apps that run on Epic's software infrastructure. Through the App Orchard, Epic's hospital clients can now integrate patient education resources — such as videos and decision-making tools — from Healthwise into their EMR and patient portal platforms.

Healthwise, a nonprofit provider of patient education tools, also developed a solution to track patient activity on its resources. These metrics are reported to clinicians to provide insight into the level of patient engagement.
