Wellcentive has developed a software platform that aids physicians in complying with ICD-10 requirements and also helps improve the overall health of patients.
The Wellcentive Advance platform delivers an end-to-end solution for managing and tracking health data. It allows aggregation of information across healthcare partners, including connecting EMR, clinical and claims systems.
The Altanta-based company has thousands of providers and end-users in all 50 states, including more than 1,300 live interfaces that exchange more than 750 million healthcare data messages annually. It allows information to be interfaced with any health information technology system or vendor, with prognostics and health management that can be managed from web-based tools.
Users can track and report on 20,000 medical conditions and diagnosis, and can configure care gap alerts and point-of-care clinical decision support.
Many vendors claim that they offer population management systems (PHM), making it a complicated market. Wellcentive is making a name for itself with its experience, product features and data management capabilities. It is a system to consider when looking for solutions to help succeed with patient-centered medical home, pay-for-performance, accountable care, and other other clinical and financial outcomes improvement programs. It has integration and interfacing teams in place that help connect the Wellcentive system with EMR, e-prescribing, hospital, lab, payer, and other systems.
"Wellcentive solutions can help you attract new patients, with higher publicly reported quality rankings and an enhanced image as a physician who is using today's most advanced HIT tools to take a proactive approach to care," says Dr. Paul D. Taylor, Wellcentive's CMIO and a practicing physician.
While government agencies and payers develop new outcomes reporting requirements and create new reimbursement models, many physicians find that the data they need is stored in many different systems. It appears that Wellcentive is one strong choice to consider to put data to work in your practice and improve the financial health of your group.
