Indicia for Care Coordination closes care gaps by leveraging informed care strategies to manage transitions and ongoing chronic care of even the most complex patient populations

Indicia for Care Coordination’s built-in logic enables providers to complete disease-specific assessments and care plans very quickly, and all of the providers involved in a patient’s care journey will have the right information.

MCG, part of the Hearst Health network and a leading provider of informed care strategies, has launched Indicia for Care Coordination. Powered by MCG’s Transitions of Care and Chronic Care guidelines, the tool allows providers to conduct assessments quickly and easily share the patient’s plan of care to effectively close care gaps.

Providers can take on risk-bearing contracts with confidence, as Indicia for Care Coordination puts informed care strategies in care navigators’ hands to manage transitions and ongoing chronic care of even the most complex patient populations.

The interactive, evidence-based assessment tool allows providers to conduct consistent patient assessments. The content is customizable and it addresses transitions from admission to discharge, and supports effective, personalized self-care for disease management. Building care plans is quick because the tool highlights patient-specific problems, and suggests relevant disease-specific goals and interventions. Also, goals can be quickly prioritized with drag-and-drop functionality. Best of all, the patient’s plan of care can be shared with providers across the care journey to ensure the right care is delivered.

NorthShore University HealthSystem was the first MCG customer to implement Indicia for Care Coordination and they saw immediate results. Jennifer Kosturik, Manager, Ambulatory Case Management, says “It used to take us an hour to complete a paper assessment. Now, we can quickly choose which assessments we need and the whole process takes half the time.”

“MCG is proud to offer a solution for a need that hadn’t been met in the market until now,” says Jon Shreve, President of MCG. “Indicia for Care Coordination’s built-in logic enables providers to complete disease-specific assessments and care plans very quickly, and all of the providers involved in a patient’s care journey will have the right information.”
