"With Jiva PHM, we can not only aggregate and share information from disparate sources, but also provide actionable intelligence with greater visibility into critical events, including outcomes and readmissions," said Murray Laidley, program manager at MIN-NS. "This directly enables us to deliver more patient-centric care and allows our entire network to operate more effectively and efficiently. Having both HIE and PHM capabilities gives us the necessary bookends for a complete solution."
MIN-NS has also extended its available Jiva HIE resources by adding two new capabilities. The first, Care Transitions, helps coordinate care continuity as individuals move across care settings. The other, eHealth Exchange, will enable MIN-NS to connect with a larger nationwide HIE involving federal government agencies and other healthcare organizations – which is central to its ultimate vision. The rollout of both new Jiva HIE functionalities has already begun and is expected to be finished later this year, as is the addition of Jiva PHM.
"With the Jiva HIE framework well established and highly functioning, MIN-NS can easily integrate Jiva PHM to quickly overcome the limitations of electronic medical records and manual processes," said Christopher Mathews, senior vice president and chief medical officer at ZeOmega. "MIN-NS will stand apart as an industry thought leader by offering a truly end-to-end solution with all of the resources necessary for achieving Triple Aim goals."
