Caradigm debuts risk stratification tool for care management workflows
Population health IT vendor Caradigm today unveiled at HIMSS17 the Caradigm Risk Stratification system, a patient list application that’s integrated with the vendor’s suite of systems including Caradigm Care Management, an enterprise care coordination workflow application.
Because the new risk stratification system is integrated with the Caradigm suite, provider organizations using the suite can realize a variety of benefits when looking to identify and manage the care of patients in value-based care programs, Caradigm said.
The risk stratification tool, for example, can aggregate data from multiple EHRs in real time, create segmented patient lists using clinical indicators, identify patients that meet defined criteria, and streamline enrollment into programs within the care management tool so that care teams can engage patients more quickly to drive better outcomes, the vendor explained.
Caradigm said that the risk stratification tool can be implemented rapidly as an add-on to already deployed Caradigm systems. The application also includes a standard set of out-of-the box lists, and can support the creation of custom lists, with plans to plug in third-party predictive risk algorithms, Caradigm added.
“For value-based care to impact the quality of healthcare delivery, data from across the healthcare community must be aggregated for use in reporting and analytics, which then must be connected to care workflows,” said Caradigm president and CEO Neal Singh. “Caradigm Risk Stratification bridges the gap between disjointed patient lists and care management workflows for high-risk patients, with a vision to include claims data, behavioral indicators, social determinants and financial indicators. Linking the analysis of real-time clinical risk indicators to population health workflow applications like Caradigm Care Management enables your team to work more efficiently and deliver care to your patients more quickly.”
HIMSS17 runs from Feb. 19-23, 2017 at the Orange County Convention Center.
