Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
Wellcentive, an industry leader in population health management and analytics solutions, announces an agreement with Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization (FDRHPO) to develop a disease registry to track and monitor COPD in their region by the end of 2012.
Serving the military and civilian populations of Jefferson, Lewis and southern St. Lawrence counties, FDRHPO provides a platform that analyzes existing healthcare delivery options and seeks new opportunities to leverage healthcare resources. This approach is expected to significantly strengthen the healthcare system, which serves more than 44,000 DoD beneficiaries and 120,000 civilian residents in the Fort Drum health service area.
Wellcentive Advance will enable FDRHPO to access regional and community level data via reporting and care alerts. This access and visibility will provide greater ability to monitor patient care needs and to proactively target providers and patients – all with a single goal of improving the value and efficiency of care and medical outcomes. Once the Wellcentive solution is in place to help collect, report and make informed population health decisions regarding COPD, FDRHPO plans to expand the program to other chronic diseases in 2013 and beyond.
According to FDRHPO Program Director Corey Zeigler, “It was extremely important to choose a partner with a solution that aligned with the goals of our region, and Wellcentive met all of our criteria. Wellcentive Advance is a complete solution which addresses disease registry, case management, and predictive analytics.”
Frank Murphy, Wellcentive President, CEO & Chairman, views the FDRHPO collaborative community as a prime example of responsible population health management by a progressive organization. “We understand how important it is to achieve the participation of a physician organization to achieve responsible population health management. By working with the Jefferson Physician Organization to build the framework for a regional population health management solution, FDRHPO has created a clear path for success. We are pleased that they placed their confidence in Wellcentive Advance Outcomes Manager to help them achieve their goals.”
Dr. Steve Lyndaker, practicing internal medicine physician and medical director for the North Country Health Information Partnership sees great value in Wellcentive’s data-driven solution. “Wellcentive’s solution offers clinicians rigorous and relevant data that can be used confidently in the care of individual patients or patient populations. I was very impressed by their method of collecting and structuring patient information and their clinically oriented use of the data which enables case based disease management and predictive modeling. Compared to the other vendors we evaluated, Wellcentive's product is clearly driven by physicians for physicians.”
