MultiCare Connected Care, LLC (MCC), an Accountable Care Organization with a comprehensive Clinically Integrated Network (CIN), has selected RelayHealth’s FuseTM to create an electronic information exchange platform that will support care coordination and financial insight amongst network members.
This platform will connect various electronic medical record systems, combining clinical, financial and operational data, to achieve a single information source. This single view of the data will be valuable in managing the health of populations and achieving the financial goals of MCC.
“We know that understanding the data is an important piece of our work to improve the quality of health care while lowering the costs,” said Zak Ramadan-Jradi, MD, MBA, Executive Director and Vice President of Accountable Care at MultiCare Connected Care. “We are excited to find a partner with a robust platform who can help elevate our capabilities through a single-data source. This will allow for the exchange of patient information across our network of providers and enable us to properly benchmark and identify opportunities to meet current and future business needs.”
FuseTM is a data foundation, acquiring and aggregating clinical, financial and operational insight across care settings to provide data-driven insights to make confident decisions along their journey to Value Based Care. The foundation enables organizations to address their need for scalable data acquisition across care settings and establish toolsets that offer structure and flexibility which will highlight potential roadblocks on the journey to value. At MCC, the overarching goal is to help patients get, and stay, healthy through highly coordinated, accessible care. With the roll-out of FuseTM, the organization will address the following:
- Longitudinal record for care coordination among disparate EMRs
- Policy creation for network structure
- Outline both current and future business needs
- Identify data required for population dashboards to meet those needs
“To succeed in the current and near-term reimbursement market, healthcare systems need a clear understanding of their clinical, financial and patient data across their entire network. A part of this problem is bringing together these various data sets, as well as working off their current enterprise data warehouses and existing analytics platforms to achieve it,” said Ken Tarkoff, senior vice president and general manager of RelayHealth. “FuseTM will help MCC quickly create a cohesive data foundation that provides accurate, consolidated insight into revenue, cost and quality across all payments models.”
As health care reimbursement models evolve and the focus on value-based care increases, FuseTM will provide deeper insight and help the organization succeed in the changing business landscape. The platform will be implemented in December.
