Multiple treatment points along the healthcare continuum present challenges to primary care doctors. The need to monitor patient visits to EDs and other specialty sites is critical with the growing emphasis on value-based care. Effective patient management demands improved communication and coordination among care team members, so patients are treated appropriately.
Healthix real-time Clinical Alerts serve as an immediate source for patient information. Primary PartnerCare, a Long Island-based ACO, receives alerts whenever their patients are admitted to or discharged from a hospital and other facilities. These notifications help fulfill the triple aim of improved care, patient satisfaction and reduced costs.
With alerts conveniently accessible via cell phones or other devices, physicians can contact patients or providers and determine the right intervention at the right time.
“Health information exchange is critical to how we practice medicine. If you don’t have this feature, it’s going to be virtually impossible to maintain continuity of care with your patients.”
— Ryan Cahill, DO, Medical Director, Advanced AfterCare
“Healthix has been very helpful in improving the care of the patient on a daily basis. Alerts have also helped to reduce admissions and readmissions to hospitals.” stated Harry Jacob, MD, Chief Executive Medical Officer.
Sometimes, hospital admissions can’t be avoided, but with Healthix Clinical Alerts your primary care provider will provide you with the best care to keep you healthy and enjoying life.
