IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mirth, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a global leader in health information technology, announced today the launch of Mirth® Care Enterprise, a comprehensive population health management suite that bridges the gap between population health management and individual patient care.
Mirth Care Enterprise can help healthcare organizations manage patient populations, reduce costs, and improve outcomes – for individual patients – as they refine best practice population management to ensure success with value-based and accountable care models.
Mirth has architected a vendor-neutral, cloud-based chronic disease and care management platform that engages patients and drives population health outcomes using clinical, financial, claims, and other diverse data integrated across the entire healthcare community. With the insights gleaned from data available to each care manager at the point of care, providers can distinguish between high-risk and low-risk patients; tailor care plans for patient complexity; better manage care team performance; and ultimately reduce the cost of care for a positive impact on the health of a defined population.
Organizations can combine data from disparate sources with this central data repository, proven interoperability, and chronic disease management offering. The agile data warehouse platform can help measure outcomes, standardize best care practices, and eliminate harmful, ineffective, and costly waste. Evidence-based care plans, combined with underlying business process management technology, support the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective care across the continuum to help improve outcomes and increase both patient and provider satisfaction.
As one of the fastest-growing ACOs in the market designated by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Level 3 Patient Centered-Medical Home (PCMH), Crystal Run Healthcare is proving that high-functioning solutions like Mirth Care Enterprise can support providers and organizations through growth and transformation to succeed as healthcare providers of tomorrow.
“As a value-driven organization, our executives and providers want a unified and flexible view of data from EHRs as well as other clinical and financial applications, both from Crystal Run as well as our partners. Having these data allows us to optimize the care we provide while maintaining cost effectiveness and patient safety,” said Dr. Gregory Spencer, chief medical officer for Crystal Run Healthcare. “By combining data sources from our organization and our trading partners, population health management, chronic disease management, interoperability and data warehousing technology with sophisticated analytics applications at Crystal Run, we have established something quite unique in the healthcare industry. It’s this type of innovation and collaboration that will propel healthcare transformation forward and we are pleased to be a part of that process.”
“The ability to manage the health of the entire patient population is key to moving healthcare to a value-based delivery model. But to manage a population, providers need to manage the individual patient first – make healthcare personal,” said Jon Teichrow, senior vice president of research and development for Mirth. “Personalized medicine requires a platform that enables data liquidity and provides meaningful analytics based on comprehensive information and complete patient data. We’ve done that with Mirth Care Enterprise and we’ve developed a platform from which organizations, care managers and patients alike can benefit. Our analytics-driven solution is extensible, transparent and designed to provide patient-centered care. It has the essential design characteristics to help users measure the highest value activities that reduce costs and improve outcomes for the patient, the organization and the growing value-driven healthcare market.”
