The 2018 release enables healthcare organizations to strengthen their care management efforts by ensuring that their Jiva investment reflects the most current and relevant evidence-based best practices for patient-centered care.
Key highlights in the 2018 annual clinical updates include:
- Comprehensive evidence and clinical reference links to reflect 2018 NCQA guidelines for health plans, population health management, long-term support services, quality indicators, primary care medical homes, and managed behavioral health organizations as appropriate.

"ZeOmega strives for continuous improvement of our clinical content," says Sam Rangaswamy, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for ZeOmega. "Each year—by listening to our clients, paying strict attention to movement within the industry, and applying that knowledge to our solutions—we know Jiva is better than it was the last year. Its robust protocols and related content will empower healthcare organizations to achieve Triple Aim goals by holistically addressing the specific needs of each individual."
The integrated clinical protocols within Jiva transcend episodic patient care, with content and capabilities that facilitate a whole-person approach across care teams and delivery settings. They incorporate the seven domains of health—intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual, social/cultural, occupational, and environmental—to consider the individual's biopsychosocial context. Branching logic and care coordination triggers then deliver event-driven workflows to multidisciplinary care teams. This enables the collaboration needed to create and implement personalized care plans based on each person's unique needs and circumstances. The result is improved outcomes, controlled costs, and an increase in patient satisfaction.
Jiva, the HIE-enabled and powerful population health platform from ZeOmega, delivers high-value, strategic solutions enabling payers and care-delivery organizations to improve individual health and provider performance. With deep domain expertise and a comprehensive understanding of complex population health challenges, ZeOmega serves as a true partner for clients, offering flexible deployment and delivery models that leverage an innovative platform designed to integrate workflow, analytics, content, and communication capabilities.
