Xerox Corp. has landed a $28 million contract with PatientPoint LLC to help doctors improve patient engagement and delivery of health care.

The deal calls for Xerox to work with hospitals and physician practices to introduce PatientPoint’s digital check-in and population health management software. The technology collects information from multiple sources into a single view to help doctors identify and address gaps in a patient’s care, in and out of the exam room.

In addition to integrating PatientPoint’s technology into existing systems in health care provider facilities, Xerox will train and support clinical staff in use of the software, the company said.
 
“As the leader in patient engagement, we’ve seen a strong demand for our mobile-enabled technology solutions,” PatientPoint CEO Tom McGuinness said in a statement. “We are thrilled to partner with Xerox, a clear leader in IT implementation services.
 
“Together we will be able to extend our leadership in creating meaningful value for providers and the health care system as a whole.”
 
Xerox supports more than 1,700 hospitals and provides business process outsourcing services to industries, including health care.
