Johnson City, Tenn. (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Integrated Solutions Health Network (ISHN) through its business verticals, AnewCare Collaborative, a leading Accountable Care Organization and CrestPoint Health Plan, Provider-owned Health Plan, announced a partnership with Performance Clinical Systems to implement the Symphony clinical workflow management platform. ISHN, AnewCare Collaborative and CrestPoint Health Plan are divisions of Mountain States Health Alliance (MSHA), the largest health care system in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.
Using a patented interactive clinical checklist engine, the cloud-based Symphony will support MSHA and ISHN care teams throughout their delivery system with consistent patient- and health plan-specific decision support, seamless transitions from one care setting to the next, critical downstream messaging, automated encounter documentation, and real-time clinical performance reporting. Go-live is expected to be in less than 60 days.
“Our mission is to provide every patient with world-class care,” said Thomas Lundquist, MD, President & CEO of MSHA’s AnewCare Collaborative and Chief Clinical Integration Officer at MSHA’s Integrated Solutions Health Network. “Symphony gives us the ability to focus precisely on each patient’s needs and personal circumstances while coordinating the nuances of contracted arrangements we have with various health plans,” Dr. Lundquist added.
MSHA is the most recent winner of the National Quality Healthcare Award, presented by the National Quality Forum, for its commitment to providing quality patient-centered care while working to lower costs.
“We’re excited to be working with the forward-thinking team at MSHA to assist with their transformation to value-based healthcare. Symphony accommodates a wide range of variables that have a significant impact on health outcomes—such as clinical, social, behavioral, and environmental factors,” said Performance Clinical Systems chairman and co-founder, Jeremy Nobel, MD, MPH. “Symphony’s unique cloud-based perch over multiple workflows, data systems, and locations will help MSHA clinicians and care coordination teams meet their quality and health outcomes goals while satisfying performance requirements that many new reimbursement models are demanding,” he added.
Designed by physicians, Symphony supports diverse clinical roles with a highly intuitive user experience. It is rapidly adopted by staff, learned in under an hour, and makes an immediate impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of patient care.
