Simbiote Care Management, Population Health Management Solution Selected by Harbor Health Services to Improve Quality
Simbiote partners with the first community health center in the US, Harbor Health Services, to improve quality and meet pay for quality metrics using Simbiote's CareSentry automated care management technology.
BRENTWOOD, Tennessee – February 18, 2016 - Simbiote, a leader in care management, population health management solutions, announced today an agreement with Harbor Health Services to provide automation for risk stratification, care monitoring and dynamic real time point of care alerts to improve quality and meet value based care requirements. Based in Mattapan, MA, Harbor Health Services, was the first community health center in the US, founded in 1965 as America’s Health Centers.
“Our unique solution automatically adds qualifying at risk patients to disease registries each day, monitors chart data for gaps in care and presents them at the point of care where providers can then take action during the visit. This automation and point of care support will help Harbor Health on their mission to improve quality” said Maria Walker, VP of Sales.
Doctor Bob Hoch, CMO for Harbor Health Services shares “We always assumed an EHR would give us good point of care reminders. In reality, our EHR does not do this well currently. We looked for a solution that could provide the reminders needed for good clinical care based upon evidence based medicine and selected Simbiote to accomplish this goal”
From a financial perspective, Harbor Health wanted a way to support care teams to improve quality measures, which in turn supports higher pay for performance revenues. They knew CareSentry would reinforce that the right care was provided at the right time, and documented correctly. Abby Sharpe, Director of Clinical Applications said “We wanted a solution that was user friendly for the providers, which was seamlessly integrated into our workflow and easy for staff to know exactly what to do.”
