AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- e-MDs, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHRs) and practice management (PM) solutions, and Lightbeam Health Solutions, LLC, a leader in end-to-end population health management, announced today the selection of their integrated platform by Princeton HealthCare System. The integrated solution will enable Princeton HealthCare System's outpatient practices to replace several other disparate systems with a single, powerful tool.
Princeton HealthCare System will leverage the system to better identify the needs of its patients based on select, detailed criteria – especially those patients at higher risk who require advanced levels of chronic care management. The system will also enable providers to access and track when a spectrum of health parameters and quality metrics have been achieved for a defined patient population.
"The new tool will give our clinicians the ability to address questions across the disease spectrum, keep track of attributed patient populations, track risk stratification and ensure quality performance," said Dr. Tobe Fisch, a practicing physician and director of practice innovation for Princeton Medicine, the employed physician practice of Princeton HealthCare System. "We expect the e-MDs and Lightbeam solution will help facilitate better team-based care by providing an immediate overview for identifying gaps in care for individual patients."
The integrated solution delivers a comprehensive and affordable population health management platform that has successfully been leveraged in more than 40 accountable care organizations (ACOs) nationally. By drawing on data from e-MDs' EHR and practice management software, the solutions give clinicians a rapid overview and streamlined insight to cost and utilization from payers. It then leverages Lightbeam's analytic and cloud solutions to transform that data into actionable information to better determine areas for improvement.
"e-MDs is thrilled to showcase its partnership with Lightbeam Health Solutions by supporting Princeton HealthCare System's clinicians as they make the transition to value-based care," said David L. Winn, MD, FAAFP, chairman of the board and CEO at e-MDs. "It gives their physicians the power to enhance the point of care experience so the right patients are getting the right treatments in a timely manner."
"Lightbeam has a valued partnership with an elite EHR provider, e-MDs, helping clients to rapidly implement quality projects and accommodate alternative payment models" said Jerry Shultz, president of Lightbeam Health Solutions. "Together our solutions will arm Princeton HealthCare System's physicians with clinical integration across multiple systems delivering a patient-centric view to providers in their native workflow."
