CINCINNATI and FORT MYERS, Fla., Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- American Oncology Network, LLC (AON) has selected PatientPoint® as the exclusive point-of-care education and engagement partner for its rapidly growing network of community oncology practices. With this new partnership, AON providers join approximately 4,100 oncologists nationwide leveraging PatientPoint solutions to educate, inform and improve communication among oncology patients, care partners and providers.

AON is an alliance of physicians and healthcare leaders partnering to ensure the long-term success of community oncology. The AON network was launched in 2018 by the leadership team responsible for the success of the nation’s largest independent community oncology practice. The AON network currently represents more than 54 physicians and 15 nurse practitioners/physician assistants across nine states.

The PatientPoint-AON partnership is an expansion of a partnership forged in 2011 between PatientPoint and Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute.

“PatientPoint allows us to customize information at so many different touchpoints to ensure patients, caregivers and providers alike are receiving the specific and appropriate information they need to know to feel truly informed,” said American Oncology Network Chief Marketing & Sales Officer Shelly Glenn. “Based on our previous success, we are confident that PatientPoint solutions will help AON practices foster that same personalized, engaged and informed experience that is the hallmark of community oncology.”

The PatientPoint offerings in AON practices include digital waiting room screens featuring award-winning, empowering education and custom messages within which AON locations can inform patients of key services and support programs, patient portal access, events and more. PatientPoint interactive exam room touchscreens are also available, featuring videos, 3D anatomicals and other multimedia learning tools for more than 20 cancer types. Providers can easily text and email information from touchscreens to patients and families, extending engagement beyond the four walls of the physician office. PatientPoint digital screens featuring the latest practice and medical news and information in the back office enable AON to highlight key practice initiatives, quality scores and keep providers and staff up to date.

“PatientPoint is proud to offer cutting-edge digital engagement solutions to AON to help their practices educate and inform patients in the waiting room, exam room and beyond the four walls of the office to help ensure better outcomes,” said PatientPoint Chief Provider Officer and President, Hospital Chris Martini. “We look forward to partnering with AON to make a positive impact on patients, care partners and providers at these key touchpoints and beyond for many years to come.”
