The entire health care delivery system is becoming more focused on collaborating and sharing accountability for patient health
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 24, 2011
CureMD Healthcare, the leading provider of Healthcare information technology, announced today two new features to support Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), the new model for delivering health care services emphasizing collaboration between participating physicians, hospitals and other providers to improve care and service to patients.
CureMD, the New York based health information technology company has introduced two new features to support ACO operations.
ProtocolPath™ overlays the best practice treatment plans developed by provider organizations to real time patient test ordering, referral and treatment plans, enabling the organization to monitor compliance with protocol, while allowing treating physicians to adapt to individual patient needs.
Perform/ACO™ converts extensive data on services being provided by all providers in the system into measures of performance for the organization in the aggregate, and drillable down to the provider level, including across locations, disease states, and treatment patterns. Perform/ACO enables the organization to create key performance indicators throughout the system, allowing management and medical leadership to measure, monitor, and act to enhance the care and services being provided. This technology will enable physicians to: Identify patients who will need the most complex care management and create care intervention strategies to benefit these patients, improve coordination of care, evaluate actual health care delivery against evidence-based medicine guidelines, assess, and predict future care delivery resource utilization and costs
"The entire health care delivery system is becoming more focused on collaborating and sharing accountability for patient health," said Kamal Hashmat, CEO of CureMD, "these new features, combined with CureMD's systems for physicians and hospitals, will gain insights from clinical data to support health delivery transition -- including efforts to create ACOs with clinical partners--by providing physicians with valid clinical data that helps them understand how to make quality and cost improvements in the care they provide, and that complements the data management capabilities or the organization".
CureMD Healthcare delivers a superior combination of all-in-one EHR, practice management & patient portal solution with innovative services like discrete reportable transcription (DRT), compliance advisory and billing services to help providers practice meaningful use, increase collections, receive incentives and subsidy payments to maximize value and returns.
