Universal Health Records. Patient Activation. Population Health Analytics.

Coming Soon

A secure and authoritative system of record for personal health information

  • Patient centered care
  • 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.

    What if health records for everyone were stored in a secure, universally accessible system that gaurantees integrity and authenticity? What if all patients had a universal health identifier (UID) that was as nationally recognized as a social security number?

    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.

Universal medical records is a powerful concept with significant implications for the health care system.

  • Cost savings

    Savings, By the Billions

    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 Analytics

    Better Population Health Analytics

    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.

  • Patient Activation

    Improved Patient Activation

    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.

Why Now? Forces Driving the Need

  • Forces web6
    • The move towards value driven reimbursements and the need for better population health management
    • The need to reduce costly low-value or no-value care
    • Emerging industry consensus that systems interoperability and open standards are key for technical innovation: HL7 FHIR, LOINC
    • Desire to take advantage of rich data from consumer and medical grade connected devices with biosensors
    • Broad agreement that patient activation is key to lowering costs
    • Federal HHS/CMS incentives and regulations that require measurements of outcomes
  • Security

    Security and Compliance

    Technical, physical, and administrative safeguards ensure that PHI is always protected and access is fully controlled in a HIPAA compliant manner.

  • Integration

    Integration Through Open Standards

    Populace speaks the language of your EHR. We leverage open standards based architecture to integrate with most modern EHR systems.

  • Pro

    Patient Reported Outcomes

    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.

Universal Scale Architecture

  • More than just infrastructure for information exchange, our secure and open standards based integration platform is a key enabler for universal medical records. It's fully HIPAA compliant and scalable to millions.

    Going beyond EMR data, Populace provides a platform for integrating patient generated data like outcome surveys as well as device generated data from consumer and medical grade devices.

  • Health Information Exchange
  • A patient portal designed from the ground up with the goal of patient activation.

    Research shows that healthcare costs are significantly lower for patients who feel informed, engaged and in control of their health conditions. Poor medication adherence costs the health care system over $200 billion yearly. Populace's patient portal is all about activation and engagement.

    We take usability and UX design seriously. We go beyond informing users about their diagnoses, active conditions, immunizations, allergies, lab results and other personal health details. We aim to ensure that users feel empowered and in control to act on their health conditions.

  • Population Health Analytics

    The healthcare system is in a major period of transition. There is broad consensus to move towards value-based reimbursements. This is driving the need for better population health management.

    Population health management is key for providers moving to value based reimbursements. Populace analytics dashboards help care organizations analyze population risk, activation level, demographics, and behavioral profiles.

    We believe data from connected medical devices is a missing piece in current analytical solutions. Our platforms provides a more complete view of your patient population.

An Integration Hub For Mobile Health Data

  • An extensible architecture that integrates heterogenous medical devices, transforms inputs into standard data formats, and provides consistent reporting of results across device manufactures and care domains.

    More than seven million patients now benefit from remote monitoring and the use of connected medical devices as an integral part of their care routines according to Berg Insights. The use of remote monitoring is expected to continue its growth at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 47.9 percent to reach 50.2 million by 2021.
    The use connected medical devices and mHealth programs is growing rapidly but, to fully realize new value propositions, providers need an effective and HIPAA compliant way of integrating this new data into existing workflows and data systems.
  • Remote monitoring

We are committed to lowering the cost of care delivery by reducing duplicate or unecessary exams and procedures, improving patient engagement, and providing a fuller view of patient and population health to physicians and care managers.
