Single Sign-On Between WISHIN and PatientPing is Live
Joint clients of WISHIN and PatientPing now have the convenience of accessing the WISHIN Pulse Community Health Record directly from the PatientPing portal or worklist.
WISHIN recently enabled single-sign-on (SSO) functionality to allow care coordinators and others to seamlessly access detailed, real-time clinical information from WISHIN Pulse about patients or members who have had an event outside their health care organization or network.
“We know SSO functionality is critical to an efficient workflow,” said WISHIN CEO Joe Kachelski. “Now there’s no need for PatientPing clients to separately log into WISHIN and search for a patient. If your organization has received a “ping,” a single click from that screen will bring your care coordinator into the patient’s community health record within WISHIN Pulse.”
PatientPing clients interested in enabling SSO access into WISHIN Pulse should contact WISHIN at
. There is no additional charge for this service.
