|By Business Wire
|April 23, 2014 07:30 AM EDT
a leader in ambulatory healthcare IT solutions, today announced American
Health Network (AHN) is live using eClinicalWorks Care Coordination
Medical Record® (CCMR) for population health management to manage three
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) – American Health Network of Ohio
Care Organization, Franciscan AHN ACO and Indiana Care Organization.
These ACOs have a total of 51,663 Medicare members and 320 providers
across Ohio and Indiana. As part of this relationship, eClinicalWorks
provided the technology and resources to assist all three ACOs with
their successful submissions for Group
Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) in 2013, a requirement for Medicare
“At American Health Network of Ohio Care Organization, we strive to
improve the health of our patients and demonstrate our core values of
teamwork, accountability, acknowledgement and empowerment,” said Mike
Kirschner, CFO at American Health Network of Ohio Care Organization.
“Working with different ACOs that have disparate EHR systems required us
to find a vendor-neutral, complete solution. We selected eClinicalWorks
CCMR as one of the most comprehensive population health management
solutions available and it has been key in our successful GPRO
submissions along with reducing costs and meeting additional care goals.”
The ACO care delivery model coordinates care between patients and
members of the healthcare team with the goal of helping strengthen the
physician-patient relationship, leading to better care and reduced
avoidable costs over time. The AHN ACOs participate in the Medicare
Shared Savings Program, which has been created by CMS for facilitating
coordination between providers to improve the quality of care for
Medicare Fee-For-Service (FFS) beneficiaries, improve patient
satisfaction and reduce unnecessary costs. eClinicalWorks CCMR is a
Web-based, population health management platform for supporting ACOs
along with other shared-savings models and will aid AHN, and its partner
ACOs, in meeting its quality measures and performance metrics.
“AHN is taking tremendous strides to improve health in both Indiana and
Ohio,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks.
“eClinicalWorks has taken its extensive knowledge of clinical workflow
and created a top-rated, comprehensive population health management
platform. With eClinicalWorks CCMR, organizations can measure, analyze,
improve clinical quality outcomes, and leverage evidence-based care from
a single solution. We look forward to continuing our work with American
eClinicalWorks CCMR will be providing American Health Network of Ohio
Care Organization with visibility into a patient’s care across all
settings, facilitate smooth transitions of care, engage patients and
providers in preventative care, improve outcomes among populations and
reduce costs. A vendor-neutral, open network securely connects
ambulatory EHRs with hospital in-patient systems and payer claim feeds,
including CMS, to provide cost and utilization for services delivered to
Included in CCMR, eClinicalWorks Population Health Management Analytics
uses closed-loop analytics to deliver reporting, alerting and messaging
capabilities necessary to manage population health. Dashboards can be
shown at the community level to determine and monitor adherence of
clinical process and outcomes, including medication recalls and chronic
disease management. Care coordination and analytics work together for a
collaborative care framework.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.

There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
