It is important, as the HealthCAWS name implies, that we drive accountability but also provide support tools so consumers and providers can be successful in this new model of care.
Farmington, CT (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
HealthCAWS views consumer engagement critical to its organizational focus on Combining Accountability With Support - “the CAWS”™. HealthCAWS has developed tools and technology to help providers drive progression along the consumer engagement continuum as well as advance quality and improve cost within an Accountable Care Organization or Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).
Rose Maljanian, CEO of HealthCAWS along with her colleagues, has recently been lending her thought leadership in meetings across the nation to raise awareness about the importance of leveraging technology to engage consumers working with their providers to improve their health and be active participants as they interact with the health care system; with the goal of improving quality and cost outcomes.
On August 19th, the Ms. Maljanian was among participants in the Dartmouth ACO Learning Network Clinical Transformation Webcast. “The Accountable Care audience is particularly important to us at HealthCAWS because these organizations represent the pioneers in transitioning health care to a pay for value system of care of the future that can truly benefit consumers,” says Maljanian. “It is important, as the HealthCAWS name implies, that we drive accountability but also provide support tools so consumers and providers can be successful in this new model of care.”
“The ACO Learning Network is focused on working with organizations committed to creating value-based care delivery systems that are patient-centered. Having informed and engaged patients, the care pathways and care teams designed according to patient needs, are key components of success for such organizations. The work by NeHC and HealthCAWS is an excellent resource for organizations that aim to deliver value for the patients they serve and we look forward to collaborating with NeHC and HealthCAWS in the future," says Greg Kotzbauer, Information Architect at Dartmouth.
Among the audiences addressed by Ms. Maljanian are large technology companies serving the health system and accountable care community. “It is important that health care technology companies understand the need to support providers in their efforts to engage consumers effectively as they are building next generation electronic health records, health information exchanges and especially consumer health portals,” says Maljanian.

By Combining Accountability With Support in an adaptable technology Platform, HealthCAWS mobilizes consumers and providers in a unified effort to achieve the common goal of high quality, affordable care – “the CAWS™.” For more information about HealthCAWS, please visit http://www.healthcaws.com/.
