Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
LaunchMed, LLC, a healthcare information technology company, announced that it is offering free trial access to its cloud-based LaunchStar™ ACO Solution to ACOs and their physicians and participants through the end of the year.
LaunchMed’s intuitive, cloud-based LaunchStar™ ACO Solution provides a complete financial and quality picture of all services rendered to ACO beneficiaries, by ACO and non-ACO participants. The financial and quality dashboard highlights the most important ACO metrics.
Additionally, LaunchStar™ provides a variety of metrics to identify patient and physician outliers based on financial and quality data. Physicians can access actionable data and patient report cards with all claims, encounter, and pharmacy data at the point of care via the physician portal. Physicians can also view their own quality and financial performance against the rest of their ACO peers.
“As 2013 comes to a close, ACOs are working earnestly to identify and close key clinical care gaps for their ACO beneficiaries,” said Jenisse Ouellette, Esq., LaunchMed’s Chief Operating Officer. “However, what we often hear from ACO executives is that they haven’t yet accessed or utilized the claims, encounter, and pharmacy data made available to them by CMS. These CMS data files contain a wealth of financial and clinical information, including that of care provided outside of the ACO, such as hospitalizations and specialist care, and is information to which the ACO otherwise would not have access from any other source, including their own EHR. This information is critical to developing a full picture of the ACO and managing the ACO’s financial and quality metrics.
“Also, one of the primary reasons we decided to offer a trial of LaunchStar™ to ACOs participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program in the critical fourth quarter, is because it is the ACO’s last chance to close clinical care gaps and improve quality metrics that will be reported to CMS in the first part of next year. Using the CMS data to identify open care gaps means ACOs will have a more accurate picture of the patient’s history, and won’t be chasing patients to provide care that has already been provided elsewhere outside of the ACO.”
The solution requires no special data formatting or mapping, or any software downloads, and is accessible via any web-based browser. LaunchStar’s fast and flexible data solution empowers clients to manage their ACO by integrating data from disparate sources into one place for all ACO executives, participants, and physicians.
“We typically can turn the monthly CMS data files around for the client in as few as two business days”, says Ouellette. “We encourage ACOs to try our solution with no obligation, to see if it is the right fit for their organization.”
