St. Luke’s University Health Network Goes Live With Caradigm Care Management to Support Bundled Payments for Care Improvement
|By Business Wire
|September 22, 2016 09:00 AM EDT
a leader in enterprise population health, today announced that St.
Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) has implemented Caradigm
Care Management software to support its participation in the Bundled
Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) program.
SLUHN is one of the largest BPCI participants in the country, having
signed up for 44 of 48 available episode bundles. To better serve the
needs of residents across the Lehigh Valley and to prepare for
value-based care delivery, SLUHN required tools for care coordination
that would span both inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as
combine its claims data with clinical data from its Epic EHR system.
The central challenge for bundled healthcare services is to make care
more coordinated and efficient across multiple settings and
organizations. Organizations must bring together data from across the
continuum and better collaborate with other providers in order to drive
improved patient outcomes and eliminate unnecessary costs. Caradigm Care
Management addresses these requirements by enabling multi-disciplinary
care teams to share information and streamline workflows as patients
move from acute to post-acute settings.
According to Chad Brisendine, CIO, SLUHN, “Through our partnership with
Caradigm, our teams are already seeing benefits that include quicker
turnaround times to initiate patient care, improved transitions of care
workflows and enhanced sharing of clinical and claims data from
in-patient and out-patient systems. We will continue to roll out
Caradigm’s enterprise care coordination software across our organization
as we scale our BPCI efforts.”
Intelligence Platform powers Care Management for SLUHN, aggregating
and normalizing clinical, operational and financial data from systems
across the community — including EHRs, billing systems, payers, pharmacy
systems, labs and health information exchanges.
Neal Singh, CEO and president of Caradigm, said, “We are proud to
partner with St. Luke’s, an innovative national leader among BPCI
participants, and are excited that it has achieved a rapid time to value
with our integrated population health solutions. The initial deployment
will serve as a great springboard to help St. Luke’s build momentum for
its broader population health initiatives.”

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates.
