OTTO Partners with MDS Medical

OTTO Health Signs Partnership Agreement with MDS Medical, Serving Providers Across the Nation

3/2/2017

DENVER, March 2, 2017 -- OTTO Health LLC, an integrated care delivery platform, has signed a partnership agreement with MDS Medical, a technology solutions and financial consultancy for ambulatory physician organizations, to provide OTTO's advanced technology solutions to the MDS client-base.

OTTO Health supports MDS with its proprietary communication platform that connects patients to physicians to deliver enhanced care opportunities outside of the traditional face-to-face consult. With OTTO's telehealth technology and workflow strategy, MDS care providers and clinical staff will be able to integrate into their practices easily and effectively. Due to regulatory reform, new payment models, and swift progress on parity laws across the nation, physicians have financial and legal incentive to adopt and use telehealth care options provided by OTTO Health.

MDS, a clinical and financial solution for ambulatory clinics throughout the country, identified OTTO Health as a partner that provides telehealth and advanced network management solutions to their clients in a seamless manner. OTTO anticipates leveraging their searching, grouping, and matching algorithms to create network-specific communities of connected providers that offers patients greater access to the ideal provider at the correct time.

"As the healthcare landscape continues to change and evidence is growing in support of telehealth outcomes, we anticipate that more physician networks and practice management solutions will adopt OTTO Health as a remote care solution," said Evan Frankel, VP of Product, OTTO Health. "OTTO is excited to be partnered with such a successful and highly innovative organization like MDS. OTTO and MDS share a common vision to improve clinical workflow, cost-saving measures, and overall health outcomes."

"MDS is committed to delivering the most efficient, and technologically integrated telehealth solution in the market with OTTO Health," said Bill Schroeder, CEO, MDS Medical, "Through a careful, thoughtfully crafted, and measured integration process, MDS providers will be presented with a solution that will help streamline virtual care visits, saving providers and patients valuable time in care encounters, and lowering the cost of care."

To kick off the partnership between OTTO and MDS, OTTO will sponsor and present at the MDS user conference, mdsNOW, March 8-11 in Phoenix, Ariz. Mr. Frankel and the OTTO Team will conduct Round Tables with users on Friday, March 10 to review and discuss the national and state-specific legislative and billing telehealth landscape for mdsNOW attendees.
