- MEDai Hosts Free Web Seminar -
ORLANDO, Fla., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDai, Inc., headquartered in Orlando, FL, a leading provider of advanced solutions for healthcare that utilize award-winning predictive analytics, announced today that it will be hosting a free web seminar on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 1:00pm ET addressing chronic care management and the importance of having current information around evidence-based medicine guideline compliance.
Addressing a clear market need, MEDai developed Risk Navigator Guidelines, a web-based portal that enhances communication between health plans, physicians and consumers, by quickly identifying when a patient's care may have deviated from evidence-based medicine's best practices and enabling real-time guideline revision and real-time guideline compliance monitoring.
Utilizing best practice standards established by organizations like AHRQ, NCQA, The American Diabetes Association and many others, MEDai has created over 140 evidence-based medicine guidelines for over 25 conditions and preventative measures. Utilizing a user-friendly web interface, designated stakeholders have the ability to edit existing MEDai guidelines and/or create their own based on specific pay-for-performance initiatives, disease management programs or care management efforts. The alerts generated around gaps in care provide physicians with real-time decision support at point of care and provide consumers with timely information regarding their health state and areas for improvement.
"MEDai designed this application around the need of health plans, physicians and consumers to have real-time access to information regarding treatment protocols and compliance to those protocols while something can still be done to improve the outcome," said Swati Abbott, President of MEDai. "Monitoring member compliance to evidence-based medicine guidelines is necessary and Risk Navigator Guidelines provides the information sharing necessary to accomplish this."
