Enterprise EHR vendor MEDITECH has announced a collaboration with Arcadia Healthcare Solutions to integrate aggregated data into MEDITECH’s Web EHR and Analytics solution for improved population health management. This integration is a major step forward in the blend of MEDITECH’s enterprise clinical database, which spans across the healthcare continuum, with claims data, other-vendor EHR data, and additional Arcadia-derived elements.
MEDITECH chose Arcadia based on its leadership position as a population health management technology company serving provider groups, hospital systems, and health plans across the country. Arcadia has extensive experience aggregating data from over 40 EHR vendors and various claims databases, giving providers a comprehensive picture of patient care delivered in and out of the network. Through its sophisticated approach to driving the quality necessary to earn provider trust, data from Arcadia will help MEDITECH customers improve care delivery and financial viability as the shift to value-based reimbursement becomes a reality.
Arcadia-supplied data elements will be sophisticatedly embedded into care delivery workflows within the MEDITECH Web EHR to actively improve care by arming clinicians with the complete picture of patient risk and utilization, a level of integration not commonly seen within the industry. These data elements will also provide powerful analytic insights to understand the construct and risk stratification of the patient population, utilization of resources, costs, and related impact on achieving quality outcomes. This will translate into more effective decisions at the point of care and a greater capability to proactively manage disease and promote wellness.
“As healthcare systems take on risk-based contracts, they need visibility into care provided across complex networks,” said Arcadia Chief Executive Officer Sean Carroll in a statement. “Arcadia delivers high-quality aggregated data to support care management and analytics within the MEDITECH platform, giving healthcare organizations the tools they need to succeed under risk. By selecting Arcadia, MEDITECH will be able to provide its customers the ability to push actionable data in the EHR at the point of care, accelerating performance under risk.”
