ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Appian360 Healthcare Innovations ("Appian360") and Cordata Healthcare Innovations ("Cordata") announced today a new partnership to deliver a comprehensive oncology care platform that integrates Appian360's outcome-focused clinical pathways with Cordata's robust care coordination platform and is designed to improve diagnostic accuracy, increase patient retention and reduce costs.
"We are pleased to partner with Cordata and its care coordination and patient engagement system, which we believe to be the best-in-class," said Stan Grice, Co-Founder, CEO and President of Appian360. "Our solution will allow doctors to standardize care paths in order to quickly identify and manage at-risk patients, empower care teams to implement and track care plans, engage patients in care management and provide improved communication with patients and their families."
"With Appian360's Algorithm Generator™, oncology care teams can now create standardized diagnostic and other pathways informed by current standards and evidence-based knowledge," said Robert Bridwell, MD, MBA, Appian360's Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer. "We are building the next-generation care coordination and patient engagement platform for people with cancer."
The use of Cordata will help ensure that patients are engaged and motivated to stick to treatment plans, take the right steps at the right time along their care paths, and navigate the unique challenges of oncology care from screening to survivorship. Hospitals and providers will also benefit from the capture of better data about outcomes.
Additional platform enhancements include Roadmaps to provide a longitudinal view of care over time, the AcuSym™ system to manage disease specific symptoms, features to address co-morbidities with severity/acuity indexing at diagnosis, and analytics to proactively monitor patient satisfaction and measure care outcomes.
"Early, accurate and comprehensive diagnosis is the foundation of effective care for people with cancer. Fundamentally, the combination of care coordination and clinical algorithms can promote better outcomes for both patients and providers," says Gary Winzenread, CEO and President of Cordata Healthcare Innovations. "This partnership between Appian360 and Cordata will help the oncology service line by improving clinical and financial outcomes in the near-term, while paving the way for smooth transitions to value-based care in the long term."
