EMERYVILLE, Calif., Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- MedeAnalytics, a leading provider of healthcare performance management solutions, today announced the launch of its Accountable Care Solution for healthcare provider and payer organizations.
The new solution addresses the needs of Medicare accountable care organizations (ACOs), as described in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, Section 3022 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as well as commercial ACOs involving health plans.
The Accountable Care Solution features essential technology components common to both Medicare and commercial ACOs, including data aggregation, clinical data exchange, performance management and role-based security.
"MedeAnalytics has the proven technology and experience aggregating data from healthcare's disparate sources, thereby bringing together the necessary data that providers need to effectively and efficiently manage care. Our data aggregation experience covers all the relevant data sets, including inpatient claims, pharmacy, laboratory, ancillary, outpatient, demographic and membership data. Effective population health management requires that all participants have access to the relevant information in a timely, accurate and prescriptive manner," said Terry Fouts, MD, MedeAnalytics' chief medical officer. "It is what we refer to as 'data democracy,' and that is what we do—ensuring access to the relevant information for caregivers. This level of transparency and timeliness brings accountability to the system no matter what it is called."
MedeAnalytics' web-based, hosted platform provides the necessary HIPAA compliance and role-based security along with ready access to information. "Our singular focus on healthcare and experience with hospitals, physicians and payers uniquely equips us to assist organizations pursuing the notion of accountable care," said Dr. Fouts.
MedeAnalytics has created an extensive Accountable Care Organization Resource Center that includes background information and reference materials, as well as links to leading online resources.
