Santa Rosa, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
A pioneer and leading provider of Population Health Management solutions,i2i Systems announced today that Greenville Rancheria Tribal Health Center/Dental Facilities has selected i2iTracks to support their effort to provide more proactive care, generate reports to meet regulatory compliance and varied grant funding requests, and manage its expanding service line. i2iTracks will play a key role in Greenville Rancheria’s goal to attain full Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) status.
As a tribal Medical Clinic, Greenville Rancheria is part of Indian Health Services (IHS), under the purview of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Greenville Rancheria serves their CHDSA areas of Plumas and Tehama County. Originally set up to serve the Plumas County Maidu Tribes, Greenville Rancheria has evolved from serving the tribal population, to the geographic region. Originally a general primary care family practice, it now offers multiple sub-specialties, including cardiology, psychiatry, pain management, orthopedics, rheumatology, dental physical therapy, ENT, OB/GYN and Internal Medicine. In the last three years, Greenville Rancheria has grown from a small clinic to three facilities and 27 providers, with more expansion on the way.
“Growth and expansion of services offer both opportunities and challenges,” explains Greenville Rancheria’s IT Supervisor Scott Harding. “Under Indian Health Services, our reporting and grant writing needs are quite varied, complex and extensive. Our electronic health record system was effectively meeting our individual patient, point-of-care needs; however, we found it too labor intensive, too time-consuming to pull the data for required reports. We needed a reporting solution that was flexible and would not tax our internal resources. We needed a population health management solution.”
Greenville Rancheria chose i2iTracks Population Health Management solution to support its demand for generating a wide range of reports. According to Harding, “i2i Systems came highly recommended by several other tribal health systems as someone who can produce reliable reports quickly and easily. We apply for many grants, all having unique data requirements. These grants often ask for non-conformed data on different populations within the communities we serve. We need to identify these populations with varying date ranges. It can be an intense effort. With i2iTracks, you can pull the necessary data for each of these grants with just a few clicks. We have found generating reports using i2iTracks so much easier.”
Featuring powerful yet intuitive analytical and reporting tools, supported by the industry’s most dynamic interface engine, the i2i Systems Population Health Management platform facilitates efficient and effective referral tracking and patient outreach. Previously, Greenville Rancheria kept separate logs to do maintenance and provide reminders to patients. However, once the referral and patient go out the door, the program lacked the capability to confirm if the patient made the appointment and actually saw the referring physician. With i2iTracks, Greenville Rancheria now has the capacity to manage patient follow up for preventive care and disease management.
According to Harding, “i2iTracks enables us to take advantage of the huge increase in data collection – from billing to clinical – since implementing our EHR. Because we can identify, organize, sort and pull specific data, we can, for example, easily identify, outreach and monitor our diabetic patients’ HbA1c. We can also use i2iTracks to document conditions related to diabetes – obesity and hypertension, for example. The power of i2iTracks is that it helps us connect and document all these conditions, which promotes better care. And even with our expansion, i2i Systems provides a solution where reporting doesn’t take us weeks but just hours to produce. This is especially important as Greenville Rancheria seeks to qualify for full FQHC status, which involves a new set of data requirements.”
“We are both excited and gratified to be playing a key role in supporting Greenville Rancheria’s growth and evolution to a full FQHC status,” said Janice Nicholson, i2i Systems President and CEO. “Greenville Rancheria is building a solid data-management foundation to support its expansion of services, delivery of proactive, quality care and maximize revenue opportunities.”
