Shared Health(R) Adds Practice Management Tools to Clinical Xchange(TM) Platform
Date:4/20/2009

Clinical Insight(TM) and Condition Tracker(TM) provide macro- and micro-views to help clinicians transform care

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Shared Health(R), one of the nation's largest public/private Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), launches two new technology tools, Clinical Insight(TM) and Condition Tracker(TM), combining patient data and evidence-based guidelines into a system that helps physicians operate their practice more efficiently, meet the increasing demand for performance accountability and provide the best outcomes for their patients.

Clinical Insight(TM) and Condition Tracker(TM) are new additions to the Shared Health Clinical Xchange(TM) platform, a web-based system that is the foundation of the company's Health Information Exchange technology enabling more than just data sharing. Condition Tracker provides a patient-centric view of a patient's adherence to evidence-based guidelines for specific medical conditions, regardless of who administered the care. Clinical Insight allows clinicians to generate reports that help them evaluate their adherence to quality and program-specific measures.

With Clinical Insight and Condition Tracker, clinicians:

  • Have a simplified condition management and wellness care process;
  • Can better track patients with chronic conditions and generate actionable lists;
  • Are able to quickly see other patient care opportunities;
  • Have more accurate performance metrics; and
  • Can offset the spiraling costs and declining reimbursements.

"Today's clinicians must focus on more than providing the best possible care for their patients. There's an ever-increasing need to provide more performance metrics for payers. Coupled with spiraling operating costs and declining reimbursements, it's more important than ever for physicians to find ways to maximize their practice's income and better manage financial and medical record-keeping systems," explains Adnane Khalil, Vice President, Technology, and Chief Information Officer. "With Clinical Insight and Condition Tracker, clinicians can focus on patient care, while Shared Health manages increasing demands for accountability and performance that practices face," he added.

Shared Health Clinical Insight

With Clinical Insight, clinicians can access a practice management tool that presents a broad view of the care delivered across their patient population. Clinical Insight allows practices to generate reports that determine opportunities to provide care for specific groups of patients and ultimately improve outcomes for all patients.

With Clinical Insight, clinicians can:

  • Drive incentive revenue;
  • Determine evidence-based care opportunities across populations;
  • Manage adherence to program and evidence-based guidelines; and
  • Generate action/call reports to contact patients that need to be seen

Shared Health Condition Tracker

Shared Health's Condition Tracker provides a simpler way to view each patient's history and key clinical indicators by condition. It's a collaborative registry that allows clinicians to add procedural and outcome indicators to each patient's record. As a result, they'll be able to determine the appropriate course of treatment, identify potential care opportunities and meet proper quality and performance measures.

Condition Tracker enables clinicians to:

  • Simplify the registry process;
  • Obtain source data from across the care continuum;
  • Sort records and filter by disease and condition; and
  • Complete the patient record to accurately reflect care delivered.

"With both Clinical Insight and Condition Tracker, clinicians can reduce costs, have more time to manage and treat patients, identify care opportunities and provide quality health care," Khalil said.

The Shared Health-supported HIE manages the data of more than 2.6 million patients, has more than 2,500 clinical users and has already shown a 17 percent improvement in efficiencies across clinical care. While many HIEs house, store and share data, Shared Health's HIE technology enables more than just data sharing. It offers physicians the ability to analyze the data to provide better patient treatment and care, improved health outcomes and less duplicate medical testing and procedures, all reducing overall health care costs.

Shared Health's technology is also available to hospital systems, offering the ability to connect with and integrate owned and affiliated community physicians. By developing a community medical network in which patient medical information can be shared in both directions, the hospital ensures highly coordinated, ongoing patient care.

About Shared Health

Shared Health was launched in July 2005 with the mission to transform health care by offering secure, innovative health information technology (HIT) solutions. With the records of nearly three million patients in its HIE, Shared Health's web-based applications securely share and connect medical information across a patient's network of clinicians, including 2,500 physicians in Tennessee. Shared Health strives to be the clinician's trusted partner for sharing relevant patient information at the point of care, enabling both health care professionals and consumers to improve outcomes.
