NEW YORK CITY and CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, October 2, 2018 —Ready Computing and InterSystems today introduced a product combination that will help Health Insurers, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) to help improve patient outcomes, streamline case workflows, reduce clinical costs, and further modernize the healthcare industry.
Ready Computing has built this new Clinical Program Management System (CPMS), known as Channels, on top of the new InterSystems IRIS for Health data platform.
Channels is a robust, feature-rich CPMS that has been custom-built for insurers and organizations engaging in shared-risk models. Channels provides a flexible, intuitive, and user-friendly platform that enables quality and care staff—not just programmers—to define and rapidly implement programs to support value-based care. The solution features a clinically-focused rules builder that is coupled with simplified, yet powerful workflow definition capabilities.
InterSystems announced the first-of-its-kind InterSystems IRIS for Health yesterday at its Global Summit 2018event. The product extends the power of its InterSystems IRIS Data Platform with healthcare-specific features, including an extensible healthcare data model, a FHIR-based application framework, and certified healthcare interoperability via every major healthcare data standard.
Channels provides users with the ability to create custom ‘Care Channels’ that can be based on HEDIS and Star Measure-based templates, with the ability to capitalize on existing plan calculated gaps in care or create programs from scratch to support event-based interventions. Ultimately, this helps staff focus on maximizing and aligning patient engagement efforts, identifying early interventions, and proactively influencing quality scores, in real time.
Channels leverages InterSystems IRIS for Health to enable the flow of clinical information and perform its built-in Complex Clinical Event Processing (CCEP) functionality. The extensible data model of InterSystems IRIS Data Platform allows Ready Computing to easily process non-clinical data from claims and financial information, in conjunction with clinical events and history from a variety of data sources such as EHRs, HIEs, and Claims Management Systems. This enables automatic patient identification for inclusion into improvement programs. Channels has the ability to show aggregated clinical, social/behavioral, and historical intervention data as well—all within the context of a patient’s case—allowing for a more integrated case management experience.
