ATLANTA & LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
HIMSS 2018--Value-based care programs continue to expand, and the results are proving to be positive for providers and their patients. Clinical data management is a requirement to succeed in the most basic value-based care program arena. However, as programs mature, more risk is required and comprehensive analysis of clinical data becomes a necessity. Without it, practices can’t get a complete picture of their population to identify gaps in care and make the changes required to improve quality.
Clinigence and MedConnect understood that a collaborative partnership between the electronic health record (EHR) company and the analytics platform would greatly benefit providers. The advantages of this relationship include improved insight into patient care and greater transparency of clinical quality performance.
“EHR’s were not designed to calculate quality measures,” said Jimmy Chapman, CEO of MedConnect. “Our strength is to provide a reliable and high-quality cloud-based healthcare software solution that was designed by and for physicians. So, it made sense to take the next step of partnering with a software team with proven quality measures management. Clinigence can provide actionable clinical data analytics to help close gaps in care and measure quality across the population.”
Jacob Margolin, CEO and Co-Founder of Clinigence said, “Supporting MedConnect’s robust offerings like their latest 2015 ONC Certified application suite, which includes electronic health records, billing management, and patient portal solutions was an exciting proposition for Clinigence. Our goal is to support care improvement by giving providers a platform for clinical quality that is simple and relevant.”
