LVHN collaborates with health care technology innovator IKS Health

Lehigh Valley Health Network has announced a new partnership with IKS Health; a Burr Ridge, Illinois based health care solutions organization.

The partnership aims to bring innovative technology to LVHN that will improve physician and patient satisfaction through improved efficiency.

As a first step in the partnership, 50 LVHN providers will implement IKS’ Scribble technology. Scribble, a virtual scribe solution, pairs physicians with a “Virtual Physician Partner” to write clinical notes about patients.

The virtual scribe listens to and documents the doctor-patient encounter in real time, transferring data to the patient’s chart.

According to LVHN, the Scribble technology will enable physicians to more fully engage with patients and free up their schedules for more patient interaction. The decreased time needed for documentation could potentially save physicians 1 to 2 hours per day.

“We are excited to partner with IKS to further identify and explore ways to truly drive innovation as we continue to provide exceptional care simultaneously with the interest in recruiting the best talent to the area,” said Dr. Michael Rossi, chief physician executive of LVHN and president of Lehigh Valley Physician Group.
