Torrance Memorial Physicians adopt population health
Here is Health Data Management’s weekly roundup of new health IT contract wins and go-lives.
- Torrance Health IPA and Torrance Memorial Integrated Physicians in the Los Angeles metropolitan region will implement the Identifi population health and risk adjustment software of Evolent Health. The organizations expect to enhance performance across Torrance’s network of 500 providers as they collectively manage more than 20,000 Medicare Advantage and Next Generation ACO lives.
- Yale New Haven Health System has renewed and extended a managed print services contract with incumbent vendor CynergisTek. The health system selected the vendor in 2015, and the program now supports 10,856 devices that include printers, copiers, faxes, scanners, and thermal and specialty printers for labels and wristbands across 230 locations. The vendor also has improved device support and integration, and Yale New Haven Health System expects to realize continued savings through a program to reduce color volume.
Hunt Regional Healthcare in Greenville, Texas, has signed a contract to purchase Streamline Health Solutions’ Health eValuator, which is cloud-hosted automated pre-bill coding analysis software. “Every healthcare provider today wants to optimize their revenue by preventing under-coded cases from going to billing and reduce risk exposure by catching over-coded cases that would overbill payers,” says Jennifer Cooper, director of health information management at Hunt Regional.
- Software vendor Allscripts in recent times has had success in signing contracts with healthcare providers in the United Kingdom and recently got another client. Maidstone and TunBridge Wells NHS Trust is the 17th provider in the UK to buy from Allscripts as it will implement the Sunrise electronic health record in a phased implementation that starts with order communications, test results, clinical documentation, patient tracking and vital signs. The trust runs two large hospitals and a regional cancer center.
- Augusta University Health in Georgia will deploy a service-oriented chronic care and transitional care management program from NavCare supported with software that includes a population health dashboard and business intelligence tools. The vendor’s technology integrates with electronic health record systems to assure coordinated treatment and documentation, says Janis Coffin, D.O., chief transformation officer at Augusta University Health.
