Wellcentive chosen by The Physician Alliance to help physicians improve quality of care.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
Wellcentive, an Atlanta-based provider of innovative Population Health Management and Data Analytics solutions with a national footprint, announced the expanded use of Wellcentive by The Physician Alliance in St. Clair Shores, Mich. to manage a wide range of quality improvement and data analytics activities.
The Physician Alliance (TPA), one of Michigan’s largest physician organizations with more than 2,200 physicians, will deploy Wellcentive Advance™ to create a comprehensive quality improvement registry to help streamline the ability to capture, aggregate, manage and report critical patient and physician data. Wellcentive’s robust data aggregation platform allows TPA to integrate patient data from multiple electronic medical records and other HIT systems into a central repository.
The registry can flag patients who meet certain criteria, search for specific diagnoses, report specific measures in chronic diseases and more. The capabilities delivered by Wellcentive will allow TPA to proactively monitor clinical goals for its entire patient population for chronic disease management and wellness, and participate in various pay-for-performance programs available through Michigan payers. TPA will also exclusively employ Wellcentive’s Outcomes Manager to aggregate, analyze and activate information from complex and disparate programs, providers, practices, hospitals and EMRs for its numerous quality programs.
“The data shared in the (Wellcentive) registry provides valuable information for establishing next steps in improving quality through the continuum of care,” said Michael R. Madden, president and CEO of The Physician Alliance. “Thanks to Wellcentive, this robust source of information will assist our physicians with improving the quality of care they provide to their patients.”
“The Physician Alliance is a model client and a great partner,” said Paul D. Taylor, M.D., Chief Medical Information Officer and Wellcentive co-founder. “The Physician Alliance maximizes the value our solutions provide, underscoring the power of activated data to drive significant improvements in patient care and practice quality. The Physician Alliance is not only interested in reporting on past performance, but it is also committed to proactively improving future outcomes. We are excited to expand our partnership with such a progressive and well-regarded organization.”
