San Francisco startup Innovaccer said it will announce a new alerting tool that integrates with EHRs at HIMSS18.

The software, dubbed InAssist, is compatible with browser-based electronic health records platforms to make health data more transparent by employing algorithms that let clinicians know when a specific patient needs attention.  

“Actionable insights like records found through multiple clinical systems, care gaps, CDI gaps, patient's previsit summary and other information is directly sent as a notification to EMR's web view without altering the EMR experience,” Innovaccer CEO Abhinav Shashank said.

Shashank said pulling that data into an EHR is more effective than two-way interoperability because there are no additional workflows and clicks to access the information, meaning physicians do not have to navigate through multiple records to find out information for every visit.

He added that the software can include more data, such as coding gaps, risk scores, markers, vitals, lab results, medications, recent visits and care teams. And InAssist can be integrated with additional software systems that support RESTful APIs.

“Our goal is to support value-based reimbursements with a reduced physician burnout. On an average, 1 risk point equates to an $8,000 opportunity, and if CDI gaps are covered, these opportunities can be realized,” Shashank said. “Additionally, it improves quality as physicians close identified gaps in care.” 

At HIMSS18, Innovaccer will be in Booth 12752 at the Venetian Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
