Sponsored by Businesswire

Forcura, a healthcare technology company that enables safer patient care coordination and transitions, announces its partnership with Kno2®, a purpose-driven company who has set out to connect all participants involved with patient care to enable the secure, effortless, and maximized exchange of patient information. This strategic partnership expands Forcura’s functionality for clients to receive, review, and accept all patient referrals in a single care coordination dashboard. Kno2’s Interoperability as a Service™ enables access to millions of healthcare providers via Direct secure messaging, patient information query and patient care networks guided by connectivity assessments and analytics.

Forcura delivers workflow and care team communication and collaboration solutions for over 600 post-acute healthcare providers in over 7000 locations across the United States. The company currently has integrations with seven leading post-acute electronic health records (EHRs) and now, through the partnership with Kno2, adds an additional 50+ integrations to EHR and digital health platforms. This partnership will enable Forcura, connected by Kno2, to expedite its strategy to optimize care transitions and coordination by creating a connected framework for all patient data. The result in post-acute will be:

  • A holistic view of patient information that makes it simple for the user to review and take action.
  • Safer care transitions as urgent data, such as current medications and high-risk comorbidities, are prioritized.
  • More efficient and effective care coordination and treatment, as internal and external providers exchange and synchronize clinical intelligence.
  • More modernized providers who can automate referrals and revenue cycle workflows and share back clinical outcomes to their stakeholders.

“The healthcare community has often incorrectly viewed Kno2 and Forcura as competitors. The partnership with Forcura demonstrates the discrete value both companies bring to healthcare and the exponential power of a partnership. Kno2 continues its passion for delivering the largest aggregation of networks, valuable end points, over 50 EHR and digital health platforms and growing natively integrated to Kno2 through one set of APIs. Forcura delivers a relevant and powerful end user experience that brings critical healthcare workflows such as managing the patient throughout their lifecycle into a powerful user interface,” stated Therasa Bell, President and Chief Technology officer at Kno2. “We are very excited to exhibit the power of Kno2’s broad connectivity to Forcura’s robust workflow engine.”

“One of Forcura’s top priorities is to source and make available to our clients patient data wherever patients are in their care journey, removing the complexity from this process and empowering better patient care,” says Annie Erstling, Chief Strategy Officer at Forcura. She adds, “Kno2 is the nation’s largest healthcare network aggregator and leading provider of interoperability, making them the perfect partner for us to achieve this goal.”
