BLUE BELL, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Halfpenny Technologies Inc. and Pulse8, Inc. announced today that they have signed a partnership agreement that will enable the delivery of seamless care coordination and clinical data exchange to enable improved quality measures and risk score accuracy.
The combined solution will streamline and automate the collection of clinical data to improve patient outcomes by enabling broader and deeper analysis of patient-level medical data. Patient chart information is typically difficult and expensive to access and retrieve. Halfpenny Technologies applies advanced data acquisition algorithms to securely access and transmit data to Pulse8 for improved risk adjustment and quality analytics, resulting in the transmission of actionable data back to participating providers in order to better document the risk factors of their patient population, demonstrate the quality outcomes of their practice, and ultimately support the delivery of improved patient care.
“We are pleased to announce our partnership with Pulse8 for use of Halfpenny Technologies’ industry-leading Clinical Data Exchange Solutions. We feel our strategic partnership will rapidly accelerate the expansion of Health Plans and Providers into deeper analytics never before possible. This will help to improve patient outcomes by providing near real-time alerts for gap closures for advance patient management programs,” said Tim Kowalski, President and CEO of Halfpenny Technologies.
Pulse8 is driven to improve the efficiency of provider and patient engagement initiatives and eliminating unnecessary and wasteful gap closure efforts by adopting innovative data acquisition methodologies and incorporating non-traditional data sets. Electronic Medical Record (EMR) integration represents a quantum leap forward and Pulse8 is working with Halfpenny Technologies to help Health Plans and Providers share data more efficiently, communicate more effectively, and address the myriad of quality measures and chronic disease gaps more completely.
“Delivering meaningful data within a provider’s workflow ultimately improves quality, risk score accuracy, and patient outcomes while reducing waste. Our partnership with Halfpenny Technologies couples an impressive integration platform technology with our Big Data and Advance Analytics covering over 95% of the EMRs in the market. We are excited to leverage the efficiencies of working with Halfpenny Technologies on behalf of our Health Plan and Provider customers,” said John Criswell, Founder and CEO of Pulse8.
