Supported by the Kansas Health Information Network's
technology vendor, ICA, SmartAlerts
uses clinical analytics to provide timely notifications to physicians and care coordinators regarding high risk patients when they are hospitalized or discharged from the hospital. As a result, SmartAlerts
informs the right caregivers at the right time with actionable intelligence that improve both the quality of care and patient satisfaction, which is increasingly being linked to reimbursement.
Prompt delivery of such critical information for a defined panel of high risk patients can help:
- Improve patient health outcomes
- Improve patient satisfaction and continuity of care
- Improve patient safety
- Facilitate patient follow up with their primary care provider
- Reduce the overall cost of care for high risk patients by reducing avoidable readmissions
is an important tool which will support physicians in their transition to performance-based incentive programs and alternative payment models.
Fees for SmartAlerts include an initial setup/implementation fee followed by an annual fee based upon number of patients included in patient panel.
