We are happy to welcome Cadalys Care, Informed by MCG for Post-Acute Care, onto the AppExchange, as they provide customers with an exciting new way to intelligently manage and optimize patient care.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) May 31, 2018
MCG Health, a leading provider of informed care strategies and part of the Hearst Health network, and Cadalys, an innovator which provides Salesforce expertise, have teamed up to offer an app on the Salesforce AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with their customers, partners, and employees in entirely new ways. Cadalys Care, Informed by MCG for Post-Acute Care, is designed to enhance communication and streamline workflow across organizations, leading to more efficient use of medical resources and improved patient satisfaction and health outcomes.
Built on the Salesforce Platform, Cadalys Care is currently available on the AppExchange at: https://appexchange.salesforce.com/appxListingDetail?listingId=a0N3A00000EOGwjUAH
Cadalys Care, Informed by MCG, is available on Salesforce Health Cloud and makes evidence-based care guidance readily accessible to those invested in a patient’s health journey. This means multiple providers can get a complete view of patients in one location from within Health Cloud and access information across the care journey, including everything from current conditions to medications. A single platform for information sharing enables smarter care decisions and better care coordination, along with the opportunity to engage more deeply with patients. Care team members can access daily task/patient prioritization dashboards, interact with other care managers via Chatter, quickly identify patient progress using a timeline view of events, and customize dashboards for high-level views of relevant information. Because this is all built on the Salesforce Platform, the application can be easily customized to extend the workflow, provide automation, and leverage other custom or AppExchange applications in a unified way.
The app incorporates MCG’s Home Care and Recovery Facility Care content, which provides comprehensive decision support to help clinicians practice to a standard of care. Post-Acute Care guidance offers evidence-based criteria to select the appropriate level of care following a hospitalization, such as Skilled Nursing, Inpatient Rehabilitation, or Home Care, to enable optimal transitions and reduce avoidable complications that could lead to readmissions. This solution empowers clinicians to make informed decisions that optimize the level-of-care and ensure an effective path to patient recovery.
Once a patient is transitioned to the appropriate care setting, MCG’s proprietary benchmarking information provides a simple way to monitor patient progress and set customizable targets around skilled nursing length of stay, discharge date, and number of home care visits. Cadalys Care presents MCG Benchmarks and Data in an easy-to-use, interactive format that allows for quick comparisons against national and regional statistics for commercial and Medicare populations (based on large national claims databases).
An early adopter and contributor in the development of this solution is Access Innovations. While piloting post-acute care redesign programs, they recognized the need for an integrated solution that provided access to evidence-based content and allowed for coordination of care around the patient. Bryce Henson, VP of Value-Based Programs for the Access Companies, commented on the experience, “As a BPCI awardee convener we’ve identified the core indicators of success that are shared in all value-based payment models—communication and patient tracking across a patient’s health journey coupled with a consistency in the quality of care delivered. We found Salesforce to be the ideal platform for the former and MCG’s post-acute evidence-based guidelines to accomplish the latter. Leveraging Cadalys’ expertise for the development of our solution was a decision we’ve never regretted!"
Jon Shreve, President and CEO of MCG, said, “We are happy to offer risk-bearing organizations the clinical guidance they need right at their fingertips. This solution enhances communication by centering conversations around the evidence and leads to better outcomes for patients and all those involved in the care journey.”
“We are happy to welcome Cadalys Care, Informed by MCG for Post-Acute Care, onto the AppExchange, as they provide customers with an exciting new way to intelligently manage and optimize patient care," said Mike Wolff, SVP, ISV Sales, Salesforce. "The exponential growth of the AppExchange underscores the enormous opportunity the entire Salesforce ecosystem has in creating cutting-edge solutions and driving customer success."
