San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2015 -- To improve the care of the thousands of patients it serves, CareSouth Carolina has selected i2i Systems Population Health Management Solutions, the company announced today.
CareSouth Carolina, a not-for-profit community health center, serves more than 30,000 patients at its 12 facilities across Eastern South Carolina. According to Randy Carlyle, Director of Health Services at CareSouth Carolina, many of those patients are uninsured and managed Medicaid patients with chronic diseases.
“The addition of i2i has transformed the integration of support services and improvements in process and outcome measures for our patients,” said Carlyle. “Everything from tracking and follow-up for well child visits and diabetic and hypertension wellness services to prenatal care, E/R utilization follow-ups and tons of others have all been dramatically accelerated. It has been tremendous.”
“We needed a way to pull the data out of our EMR and found i2i Systems. We are very excited about being able to better track our patients’ health and we have confidence that the information from i2iTracks is accurate. Once we have fully implemented the system, we will be able to demonstrate how we are improving care. That is what we are all about here at CareSouth. ” Carlyle continued.
To ensure they were providing better care for their patients, CareSouth Carolina redesigned the way their care teams practice. They have enhanced the integration of population management and team-based, person-centric patient care by adding Community Health Workers and Certified Medical Assistants. Providing everything from home visits to follow up and tracking ensures patients are accessing care and receiving needed services. Each care-team member has been trained on the use of i2iTracks and is proactively using it.
“With i2iTracks, the staff can quickly and easily run Morning Huddle Reports and other reports to ensure they are eliminating gaps in care, especially for our chronic disease patients,” Carlyle said. “We believe our efforts will lead to more continuity of care for these patients.”
“i2iTracks is definitely transforming our ability to provide quality care for our patients. I envision our quality outcomes rising exponentially over the next year,” said Carlyle. “With i2iTracks we can build a custom report in just a few minutes, and I can easily show anyone on our staff how to run a report.”
“We did look at a few other systems, but we never found the ease of use, reporting features or quality that i2i Systems offers” stated Carlyle. “No one else could touch i2i Systems.”
i2iTracks is the leading Population Health Management solution used in more than 1,000 healthcare facilities nationwide. i2iTracks, helps standardize data from disparate electronic health records, practice management and other systems, simplifying the path to actionable information for an entire patient population. This enables clinicians – and their teams - to proactively, rather than reactively, manage patients leading to increased staff efficiency and better clinical outcomes.
