Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
CoCENTRIX, a leading provider of coordinated care technology solutions to state Health and Human Services and community providers, announced today that 10 Texas Agencies are implementing the CoCENTRIX Coordinated Care Platform (CoCENTRIXccp) to connect, collaborate, and coordinate services; manage their clinical, financial, and administrative operations; and enable them to address the requirements established through the Texas Medicaid Transformation Waiver.
CoCENTRIX delivered the Coordinated Care Platform to the Topaz Software Authority, an organization founded by two of the largest Mental Health Mental Retardation Agencies in the state, the Mental Health Mental Retardation Authority of Harris County and Mental Health Mental Retardation of Tarrant County. As part of the project, CoCENTRIX and Topaz teamed together to develop a common taxonomy, “the Texas Best Practices.” Texas Best Practices provides organizations across the state with access to shared clinical and administrative best practice content and the ability to more readily comply with Texas-based state assessments, state reports and payer requirements.
The CoCENTRIXccp, combined with the Texas Best Practices, provides a rapid deployment methodology with the ability to leverage cloud technology to reduce costs, interoperate with other networks and structure a data repository available for data mining and outcome-based analyses. Built on Microsoft Dynamics technology, the CoCENTRIXccp enables communication, information exchange, and collaboration among providers of all disciplines, state and county oversight authorities, and participants across the entire healthcare continuum.
To date, 10 Texas Agencies have signed on as CoCENTRIX partners providing services in 53 Texas counties serving an estimated 1.5 million consumers each year. The participating agencies are: Mental Health and Mental Retardation Authority of Harris County, Mental Health Mental Retardation Authority of Tarrant County, Andrews Center Behavioral Healthcare System, Central Plains Center, Gulf Coast Center, Denton County Mental Health Mental Retardation Center, Heart of Texas Region Mental Health Mental Retardation Center, Helen Farabee Center, Pecan Valley Centers for Behavioral & Developmental Healthcare, and StarCare Specialty Health System.
“Through our partnership with CoCENTRIX, we have built a coordinated care platform that can be effectively implemented by any Behavioral Healthcare or Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities provider in the state,” said Dr. Steven Schnee, CEO of MHMRA of Harris County. “It is more than just an Electronic Health Record – CoCENTRIX’s patient-centered approach to cross-system care planning and coordination will help ensure consistent, quality care for all Texas residents.”
Leigh Orlov, President of CoCENTRIX, stated, “By participating in this broader user community, individual Texas Authorities will create a powerful singular voice to influence product enhancements as well as advancing the causes important to them at the state level. CoCENTRIX gives them immediate access to critical information, state-of-the-art care coordination and case management tools, and easy integration with third party and mobile applications.”
CoCENTRIX provides innovative coordinated care solutions to Health and Human Services. Our flagship product, the CoCENTRIX Coordinated Care Platform (CoCENTRIXccp), optimizes the behavioral care continuum for the best clinical and fiscal outcomes, resulting in a cascade of benefits for state and local government agencies, behavioral health providers, and consumers – all possible through collaborative information exchange and open technology architecture.
