EMR integration solutions, such as Integr8, help to bring many pertinent sources of data together to present a more complete picture of the patient that can be mutually beneficial for the patient, provider, and payer
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) March 08, 2017
Pulse8 is driven to improve the efficiency of provider and patient engagement initiatives and the confidence of gap closure efforts by adopting innovative data acquisition methodologies and incorporating additional data sets. Electronic Medical Record (EMR) integration represents a quantum leap forward in this vein and Pulse8 is working with the leading EMR vendors in order to help payors and providers share data more efficiently, communicate more effectively, and ultimately address the myriad of quality measures and chronic disease gaps more completely.
Integr8 utilizes advanced IT protocols to unite an ever-growing number of leading EMR systems with our Reveal8 engine to enable the bi-directional exchange of data: Integr8 embeds advanced analytics into the provider’s workflow and extracts patient data from the Provider’s EMR. Embedding analytics into the EMR enables the payor to push alerts to the provider for the closure of gaps in documentation, coding, and quality directly in the clinical setting. Getting data directly from the EMR enables the payor to leverage the EMR’s expansive data set and reduce the number of unnecessary interventions ultimately removing waste. Regardless of the direction of the data flow, the benefits are the same: greater efficiency for all parties and reduced administrative demands on your busy network providers.
“As providers, ACOs, and health plans take on more risk, there is a pressing need for care givers to have data at the point of care that help them identify and act on verified conditions or suspected conditions.” According to Pulse8’s VP of Product Strategy, Mark Brooks, “EMR integration solutions, such as Integr8, help to bring many pertinent sources of data together to present a more complete picture of the patient that can be mutually beneficial for the patient, provider, and payer.”
