Over time, our personal health information gets scattered in isolated electronic medical record systems. When people move or change jobs, they can't easily take their medical history with them to share it with new care providers.
When visiting an outside ER, a patient could grant permission to an ER physician to access his/her medical history. Primary care physicians and care managers would have the ability to view a new patient's complete medical history and make more informed decisions about exams and procedures. Unnecessary costs associated with missing patient information would be avoided, and patients would be more likely to receive high value care.
Missing or incomplete health records lead to unnecessary procedures and lab tests. Unnecessary care accounts for an astounding 30% ($900 billion) in health care costs.
Universally accessible health records enable more informed decisions on procedures, prescriptions, tests, and have the potential of saving billions in national health care costs.
Population health management is key as providers move to value based reimbursement models. More complete patient informatoin enables more accurate and meaningful analytics.
Data from connected medical devices is a missing piece in current analytics solutions. A universal health record system that also aggregates mHealth data can provide unprecedented insights into a population’s health behavior.
Health care costs are significantly lower for patients who feel informed and engaged. Poor medication adherence costs the health care system over $200 billion yearly.
A single, consolidated source of personal health records can help patients feel informed and empowered to act on their health conditions.
Technical, physical, and administrative safeguards ensure that PHI is always protected and access is fully controlled in a HIPAA compliant manner.
Populace speaks the language of your EHR. We leverage open standards based architecture to integrate with most modern EHR systems.
With a move towards value-based reimbursements, measuring outcomes is more important than ever. Populace includes the tools to administer and report on standardized Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) to quantify symptoms and improvements.
