Know what’s happening with your patients in real time
Today’s focus on value-based care delivery demands that providers monitor patients across the care community at all times, not just when they come in for an appointment.
Medicity Notify makes it simple by alerting providers when patients are involved in a care event, such as a hospital discharge or readmission, enabling proactive responses that support improved outcomes, higher reimbursements and lower costs.
Flexible, customizable solution
- Use as a stand-alone solution or integrate with existing EHR and HIE systems
- Choose the type of alert trigger (patients, conditions or care events), the preferred format (SMS text, HL7 or secure email), and when they’re received (real-time or at specified scheduled times)
- Medicity Organize users can also tap into Medicity’s Master Patient Index to improve patient matching and gain one-click access to the patient’s longitudinal health record; a URL added to the secure notification takes providers straight to the patient’s Community Health Record
Improved outcomes for seamless care transitions
- Enables easy patient monitoring and follow-up—especially for high-risk, high-utilization populations—to enhance care coordination, shorten time to treatment/intervention and improve outcomes
- Supports seamless care transitions and enhanced provider communication/collaboration across the care community
- Allows payers and providers access to daily reports about patient admissions and discharges across the network
Higher reimbursements with lower costs
- Maximizes reimbursements under a variety of value-based payment models by supporting achievement of quality goals
- Helps providers qualify for incentives based on meeting requirements for delivery of Transitional Care Management services under new CPT codes
- Lowers costs by supporting strategies to reduce high-cost, low-value utilization (such as ED visits for non-urgent care), and decrease hospital readmissions and length of stays
- Prevention and management of disease outbreaks: The state registry in Mississippi receives clinical information—including immunizations, labs and symptoms—to help state public health agencies improve syndromic surveillance and better manage disease outbreaks.
- Inmate care coordination during and after incarceration: Providers responsible for clinical oversight of South Dakota inmate populations receive notifications of inmate hospital admissions to help reduce hospital utilization, minimize gaps in care and ensure continuity of care post-incarceration.
- Home health providers improve efficiency: In North Carolina, home health agencies are alerted in real-time about client hospital admissions, readmissions and deaths, enabling proactive planning and management of care visits and staff scheduling.
- Non-urgent ED utilization reduced: Also in North Carolina, emergency department case managers are able to identify patients who chronically utilize the ED for non-urgent care, allowing them to intervene and redirect patients to more appropriate levels of care.
