PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kryptiq Corp. announces the release of CareManager 4.0. Co-developed with leading healthcare organizations, and curated in collaboration with a 42-member customer advisory group, Kryptiq's CareManager aligns the care team with the decisions made at the point of care. Unlike the alternatives, CareManager is deeply integrated within the EHR, is informed by real time clinical data, and provides integrated patient engagement.
Color-coded dashboards present a simple and easily recognizable view into patient risk across the population. Treatment protocols are recommended via CareManager's customer curated guidelines, enabling all providers to practice at the height of their licensure.
"The color-coded dashboards present meaningful data in a very clear way. Providers can walk into the room and assess the patient's risk and care opportunities in 30 seconds," said Jon Michael Vore, DO, Foundation Medical Partners. "Now we can spend our time actually engaging with the patient, and be confident that we're identifying and closing treatment gaps. In return, the dashboards create an educational opportunity for our patients, improving comprehension and leading to greater engagement."
According to Cynthia Burghard, Research Director, Accountable Care IT Strategies for IDC Health Insights, this deep integration of care management tools in the provider's EHR system is the primary differentiator between a tool that enables population analytics and a tool that advances care delivery.
"Delivering the patient's complete health profile to the point of care enables providers to make informed decisions about the patient's health profile, their health risk, and the appropriate treatment protocol, and only a few vendors can provide this functionality," said Burghard.
CareManager extends the provider's workflow to the patient by generating individualized care plans and patient-friendly, color-coded scorecards. Providers use the scorecard to engage patients in the encounter room, and the opportunity for personal involvement is enhanced because their scorecards are automatically delivered via their patient portal. Additionally the population registry enables quick identification and management of patients that are at risk or symptomatic of a chronic illness, but lack a formal diagnosis.
"In the brave new world of value-based payment, healthcare organizations must shift care delivery from seeing 25 patients per provider per day, to managing 2500 patients per provider," said Malcolm Costello, General Manager of Population Health Management at Kryptiq. "CareManager synthesizes available data to provide actionable insights. This enables providers to focus on the patients they are seeing today, and support staff to reach out to the patients who should be seen. By coupling these capabilities with automated tools for stronger patient engagement we're enabling organizations to improve the health of populations with a more personal patient experience while controlling costs."
