Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
Rise Health, the premier provider of fully integrated population health management solutions, and Integrated Health Partners, a physician hospital organization based in Michigan, are shaping a new relationship that will help IHP effectively provide care management and disease management services.
“If you’re going to move into disease management, you need population health tools to help you stratify risk,” says Dr. Mark Crockett, chief executive officer of Rise Health. “We have the data aggregation, analytics and proactive care management platform to support IHP in fully comprehending where patients are in the care process.”
Rise and IHP began working together in late 2013 to support data warehouse and reporting efforts for a quality improvement initiative for the IHP home health nurses. Rise Health, through its Stratus Population Health Analytics application, gives IHP the ability to customize the data analytics for greater transparency and management.
Rise Health is now helping IHP boost its data interconnectivity in preparation for a move into disease management. IHP data including claims, labs, hospital and EHR information are being moved through Stratus to create a fully integrated data exchange between IHP, Rise Health and a the IHP patient registry.
“When the data exchange is complete, our nurses will have the information they need to truly understand where patients are in the care process,” says April Kuehn, director of operations for IHP. “Through Stratus, we can drill down to the patient level to identify high risk patients and those who are more likely to have an ER visit or who may have a negative health outcome in order to create individual care plans for our patients.”
As IHP expands into new offerings, the physician hospital organization will require sophisticated reporting for administrators to help manage and validate the impact that programs are having on the target patient population. “We are likely to expand our services, and Rise Health offers additional applications that could facilitate program effectiveness,” says Kuehn.
