We are thrilled to collaborate with MedCurrent to implement evidence-based guidelines for all chronic conditions, starting with diabetes.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) May 02, 2017
Healthy Interactions, LP and MedCurrent Corporation are pleased to announce a ten-year license agreement to provide Clinical Decision Support (CDS) solutions to manage chronic conditions, starting with diabetes.
“Last year, the CEO of a leading health system said, ‘Our patients progress significantly when they participate in the Healthy Interactions Diabetes Program. Their biometrics, treatment adherence, quality measures and economics dramatically improve. How do I get all my patients into your programs?’” says Paul Lasiuk, CEO of Healthy Interactions. “This question inspired us to figure out how we can help our health system partners identify the appropriate patients for corresponding Healthy Interactions programs. How do we help them ‘fill the funnel’?”
The Healthy Interactions Integrated CDS Platform connects into electronic health record (EHR) systems to seamlessly capture relevant patient data and provide real-time, evidence-based decision support to healthcare professionals. The CDS solution immediately informs the healthcare professional if the patient has a chronic condition, provides the diagnosis, and automatically develops recommendations based upon individual patient care plans and medical prescriptions.
Lasiuk continues, “We are thrilled to collaborate with MedCurrent to implement evidence-based guidelines for the most prevalent chronic conditions, starting with diabetes. Healthy Interactions will be the first and only one-stop-shop providing CDS with our proven patient education and digital connectivity platforms to support chronic care patients across the continuum of care.” The Integrated CDS platform simplifies physician workflows while improving the standard of care, resulting in more timely diagnosis, improved biometrics, enhanced patient engagement and improved economics.
“Clinical Decision Support continues to expand across various clinical conditions and medical specialties,” says John Adziovsky, President of MedCurrent. “We are excited to develop a solution that supports Healthy Interactions in improving care for patients with chronic conditions by helping clinicians provide the best quality of care. Our OrderWise™ platform not only identifies every transition of care point to optimize care plans, it also enables providers to monitor the improvements and challenges patients have with managing their health.”
