Apollo Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
Today, LaunchMed, LLC announced the launch of their end-to-end CMS data handling service, a value added service that is part of the LaunchStar™ ACO Solution, designed for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
“There are a lot of vendors out there, so understandably, we are often asked to identify what makes us unique,” said Debbie Ouellette, LaunchMed’s CEO. “Certainly, we think our experience in large-scale software solution development, as well as extensive experience in managed care quality gives us a distinct edge. However, we also really understand the CMS data. We know that many ACOs are still struggling with accessing their CMS data, or being able to use it in a meaningful way. We have been able to consistently download and process the CMS data for our clients on a monthly basis, which is the frequency that CMS makes the data available. We have been very successful with providing our clients the data they need to identify clinical care gaps and improve their quality scores.”
LaunchMed’s cloud-based LaunchStar™ACO Solution retrieves data from CMS on behalf of the ACO, and presents 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, the management-reporting tool with drill down functionality provides for customized reporting. Physicians access actionable data and patient report cards at the point of care via the physician portal.
LaunchMed’s Chief Technology Officer, Jeremy Ouellette, added, “The LaunchStar™ ACO Solution is unique in that we are able to give our clients a 12-month history of all the claims, encounters, and pharmacy data for services provided inside and outside of the ACO, which is critical, especially at this point in the year. We can also supplement the CMS data with EMR or other data the ACO may have.”
The solution requires no special data formatting or mapping, or any software downloads, and is accessible via any web-based browser. For more information on the LaunchStar™ ACO Solution, visit: http://www.launch-med.com/solutions/launchstar-aco-solution.html
