Our vision, principles and history
Based in San Diego, CA, Visiontree is a profitable, privately held company incorporated in 2003. Visiontree's strategic vision is to improve the transparency of information for patient wellness and care by delivering cloud-based, patient-centric data exchange, interoperablity and outcomes tracking across communities.
Visiontree recognizes that patient-centric healthcare system reform is being driven by several factors including consumer demand and the adoption of specific quality measures by payers & providers. The overarching need is to provide the best quality of care, delivered affordably, for optimal, long-term quality of life.
Our Guiding Principles
- Patient-centric data management workflow
- Private, secure data accessed by permissions & authorized role
- Data is held with trusted source
- Data is never sold, no advertising
- Web-based, cloud computing
- Connects to all clinical systems: inpatient, outpatient EMR, pharmacy, billing and imaging
- Deliver patient engagement for delivering quality and efficient patient care
As originally established by: Neil Martin, M.D., Visiontree Chief Medical Officer
Based on these factors, Visiontree is working closely with patients, providers, medical societies and payers to collect outcomes data, foster patient responsibility and aggregate quality measures for transparency on physician, hospital and specialty levels.
From the experience of implementing Visiontree solutions at over 600 sites to date, our team has learned to never underestimate the readiness and willingness of patients to embrace cloud-based communication and the physicians and staff to adopt new technology. By eliminating the paper process of patient's completing information and saving steps to input their data directly into a secure, electronic and easily accessible format, VTOC has been proven to improve the quality of patient care and the efficiency of staff workflows.
