Allscripts dbMotion Population Health Forum Reveals that Move to Population Health Management Adoption is Happening "Much Faster than Anyone Expected"

CHICAGO, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Caregivers from around the country came together to share examples of how population health management is already transforming their organizations, allowing them to develop better clinical protocols while dramatically reducing costs at the Allscripts dbMotion Population Health Forum, dbU, held in Pittsburgh last week.

Presenters and attendees at this year's dbU shared best practices about connecting and sharing data to drive population health initiatives and how they're applying care coordination and analytic tools, such as Allscripts FollowMyHealth™ patient portal, Care Director outpatient coordination solution, analytics and more.

Allscripts President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Black addressed the attendees providing his vision for Population Health Management and outlining Allscripts leadership role in empowering clinical decision-making and patient engagement through aggregated analytics and patient portal technology.

"We have all the components in place to begin delivering on value-based care and specifically population health management for our clients," Black said. "Caregiver involvement, analytics and patient engagement through leading-edge portals such as our FollowMyHealth™ solution are all key to delivering the most effective treatment at the best cost point."

dbU's more than 200 attendees, a Forum record, were from some of the nation's largest health systems, several of whom shared their experiences about how data exchange and population health initiatives are transforming their organizations.

"The move to population health is happening much faster than anyone expected," said Peter McClennen , president of dbMotion. "Nearly all of our attendees focused on the value that population health will bring to their organizations, through an open approach. The adoption curve is moving along the lines of connectivity, HIEs, care coordination, patient engagement and analytics."

Bill Spooner , senior vice president and chief information officer of Sharp HealthCare, said, "I found this year's dbU to be stimulating, with some terrific client testimonials on how they were able to improve the quality of care and patient satisfaction while controlling costs."

Applying analytics to population health data was a dominant theme at dbU. One presenter was able to aggregate clinical data with financial data to determine that too many back surgeries were being performed in various care settings where other alternative treatments could have been effective.

Allscripts dbMotion facilitates the move to population health management by integrating patient data from disparate health information systems and delivering it to clinicians at the point of care. dbMotion organizes the data to allow physicians and other caregivers to easily access and manage information within familiar workflows.

Cumulatively through the inception of the technology, more than 1.6 billion health events had been shared through dbMotion across 227 health information technology system interfaces, including Electronic Health Record systems, Health Information Exchanges, laboratories, and imaging communication systems. dbMotion's solution was accessed more than 660,000 times over the last 12 months, with one provider organization exchanging 2.2 million messages per day between affiliated and unaffiliated facilities.
