Halfpenny Technologies integrates clinical decision support platform to enable Health Plans to improve chronic care

Halfpenny Technologies has selected Patient Engagement Systems’ (PES) platform as a feature enhancement to its ITF-HUB solution, a cloud-based clinical data exchange solution enabling health plans to access members’ clinical data from a wide variety of hospital and commercial labs through only one data connection. The enhanced solution will now leverage PES’ expertise in developing patient centric clinical decision support tools and utilities for member engagement, enabling health plan clients to manage chronic care programs down to the clinic level to improve quality and cost.

Halfpenny CEO Tim Kowalski commented, “We are pleased to be partnering with PES to further enhance our unique clinical data exchange offering to Health Plans. As Health Plans strive to improve the quality of care of their members and reduce their cost, they need improved tools and data to make the right decisions at the right time. Our ITF-HUB solution, which will now have PES’ modeling capabilities imbedded, offers Health Plans the best solution to solve their quality of care and cost challenges.”

Halfpenny's proven method of clinical data capture, aggregation, normalization and archive & retrieval are being used to bridge the gap between claims information and discrete clinical data. Additional benefits of the collaborative solution for Health Plans include:

  • Improves management of patients with chronic diseases can help drive reduced costs and support overall population health.
  • Provides significantly more complete actionable information than plans and ACOs receive today.
  • Combines claims and chart data can help improve performance on Medicare Five-Star Ratings, NCQA, and HEDIS scores.
  • Better supports shared savings and risk based collaborations.
  • Benchmarks performance within and across regions.
  • Enables high performers to use core capabilities to better leverage laboratory data in a meaningful way.

“We are very excited to be partnering with a leading provider of data interoperability and health care intelligences services,” explains Stanley Goldstein, President and CEO of Patient Engagement Systems. “With health organizations assuming more financial risk for the total health of their patients, we expect the growing urgency to improve care coordination for chronic care patients to increase dramatically over the next few years. For Accountable Care Organizations, this will be a necessity.”

Halfpenny Technologies will be attending the 2013 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition in New Orleans, LA on March 3-7; and representatives will be available in booth #5223 to discuss this lab data interface solution.
