Orlando, FL-HIMSS Conference 2017 – Feb 20, 2017 – Caradigm®, the leader in enterprise population health, today announced that the Palmetto Health Quality Collaborative (PHQC), the clinically integrated network affiliated with Palmetto Health is now live on Caradigm solutions to drive population health through its clinically integrated network. The PHQC has implemented the Caradigm Care Management and the Caradigm Intelligence Platform, and is working to deploy Caradigm Risk Management and Quality Improvement.
Palmetto Health is the largest and most comprehensive integrated health care system in the South Carolina Midlands region and its clinically integrated network, the Palmetto Health Quality Collaborative, has over 1,200 participating providers. Caradigm Care Management supports the PHQC’s interdisciplinary care teams in sharing patient information, streamlining time-consuming workflows, and ensuring all members of the care delivery team are able to work at the top of their license. With these improvements, the care teams will be better able to transition high-risk patients moving from inpatient or Emergency Department care back into the community or to a patient-centered medical home. The PHQC participates in a variety of value-based population health initiatives including a Medicare Shared Savings Program, commercial ACO products, and the management of the Palmetto Health self-insured employee population.
The PHQC collaborates with other clinically integrated networks in South Carolina to achieve state-wide goals through the Care Coordination Institute (CCI). CCI led the PHQC’s Caradigm implementation building on the experience and expertise from launching the Caradigm solutions with the MyHealth First Network (MyHFN).
Neal Singh, CEO and President of Caradigm said, “Caradigm’s mission is to help innovative organizations like the Palmetto Health Quality Collaborative build the technology infrastructure they need to redesign their systems of care. We applaud the PHQC for their efforts to align the delivery of healthcare to population health in order to improve patient outcomes.”
The Palmetto Health Quality Collaborative (PHQC) is a regionally recognized clinically integrated network comprised of more than 1,200 physicians and six hospitals to drive targeted improvements in health care quality and efficiency. Since its inception in 2010, the PHQC has been committed to increasing the quality of care patients receive by setting higher performance and quality expectations for participating physicians.
Through a focus on prevention, optimal treatment of diseases and the coordination of care across the continuum, the PHQC continues to strive to create value by improving outcomes for its patients and reducing costs for employers and payers.
