Collaborative Community CareCoordinated, ongoing care between providers, hospitals, labs, radiology centers, and other healthcare facilities for the population of patients they serve.
Coordinated Continuum of Patient Care
In this age of MIPS/MACRA, the pressure is on to fulfill the 4 components of MIPS: Quality, Promoting Interoperability, Improvement Activities and Cost. These core elements of MIPS are really the essence of what we call Collaborative Community Care. To us, it means providing high quality care by sharing information between care providers and the patient throughout their lifetime, all while working to contain costs. Whether you are located in a large metropolitan area or a highly rural setting, we can connect your community and support the continuum of care for your patient population.
What We Do
Provider to Provider
The key to providing excellent care to your patients is having all the information you need at the time you need to make a decision about care. Connecting providers within a community supports that decision making process which has the benefit of reducing the number of duplicate procedures and thus a reduction in costs. Whether the connection is point to point between providers or part of a larger information exchange, we can build the right solution.
Hospital to Provider
Reducing the number of patient readmissions to hospitals is one of the critical goals stipulated in government incentive programs. To stay on top of patient discharges, a practice needs to have a connection to the hospital system. We’ve got you covered.
Provider to Exchange
Though many “public” health information exchanges have come and gone over the years, semi-private and private exchanges are proving more resilient. These exchanges truly support the concept of collaborative community care and are increasingly turning to us for help in bringing them to fruition.
Provider to Patient
Another critical component to collaborative community care is communication with the patient. MIPS requirements not withstanding, more and more patients are looking to have greater access to their provider. Connecting your EMR to a portal of some sort is still generally the most effective method. However, native EMR portals still tend to lack the functionality needed by providers and patients alike. That is why we recommend a patient portal solution with all of the functions needed for true patient engagement along with the expertise to interface it with your system.
Provider to Lab & Radiologist
When it comes to primary care providers virtually all have an important relationship with a reference lab or radiology group. The challenge many practices face is efficiently submitting orders and receiving results electronically. We specialize in the connectivity, transformation and delivery of lab orders and results.
Provider to Registries
Submitting clinical data to the various registries is becoming increasingly important, which is why we have developed so many connections and add more each week.
And So Much More
Of course there is much more that contributes to collaborative community care, but you shouldn’t have to burden yourself with all the details. We understand that you want to focus on giving your patients the best care possible. We are happy to take on the technology portion and provide you, as well as your community of peers, a clinically integrated network that supports your collaborative community care efforts.

Info sharing increases time efficiency and reduces costs
Having the information you need, when you need it makes visits with your patients much more efficient. Knowing when your patient was discharged from the hospital and what instructions they were provided makes your decision making process so much easier. Having the history before speaking with the patient reduces costs for the patient not to mention your own time savings. Your patients will experience a greater sense of comfort and confidence in your practice when they experience less waiting, fewer procedures, and no more interviews regarding past visits to specialists or walk-in clinics.
