Harnessing the Power of Data to Deliver Better Care Management – Spotlight on Partnership with VIP Vendor: The Garage

Knowledge is power, and with a network that connects thousands of organizations and facilities throughout New York City and Long Island, Healthix strives to empower its customers. Healthix provides vital, aggregated clinical data to better inform medical treatment, enhance collaboration and improve patient care coordination. With the launch of the Healthix Vendor Interoperability Program (VIP), customers can tap into exceptional data solution vendors powered by Healthix data. The integration is already complete, they meet the standards of New York State privacy policies, and the solutions are HIPAA compliant.

Healthix is excited to introduce a VIP collaboration with The Garage, which offers Healthix participating organizations actionable health data using Municipal, a population health management platform created by The Garage and powered by Healthix. Municipal is designed to meet the needs of value-based community care providers.

Municipal maximizes the effectiveness of Healthix’s secure, aggregated records available through the HIE by allowing participants to easily share and analyze data from the exchange, as well as their own clinical information, to better serve patients. With this information available at their fingertips, providers can better track trends in patient care and health, facilitating early intervention and continued monitoring of areas of concern. This approach to care management can improve patient outcomes, better manage performance on value-based contracts, and help reduce overall cost of care.

Healthix customers who become Municipal subscribers will benefit quickly with proven tools for care management, infused with industry Social Determinants of Health information, capabilities for patient communication, and even telehealth. More options for communication with patients means more opportunities for providing regularly scheduled care, which is key to ensuring overall health and well-being, and for providing more frequent touch points with those who need it.

As a VIP vendor, The Garage is already integrated with Healthix, which means participants can be up and running on Municipal in just 24 hours, and see ROI for their teams and their patients within months.

“Our goal is to change healthcare for good by encouraging the adoption of the value-based care model, and this new joint venture with Healthix allows its participants, from small practices to large health systems, to adopt these strategies on the front lines,” remarked Joshua Cowan, vice president of growth and market development for The Garage.

An established Healthix VIP vendor, The Garage is a healthcare technology company, serving providers in more than 30 states, with an exclusive focus on advanced population health management for value-based care providers. The Garage’s healthcare partners have achieved more than $608 million in gross Medicare savings to-date, including nearly $178 million in 2020.

Healthix participants interested in learning more about Municipal can register for a demo by calling (407) 730-2286. Through this VIP collaboration, an exclusive introductory rate is offered for all subscribers.
