Microsoft

Health needs are infinite, but resources are finite. Health organizations are frustrated with technology solutions that haven’t delivered on their promise to improve care, facilitate research, and rein in costs. Transforming healthcare requires more than digitizing medical records. We need “systems of insight” that help translate data into action, and “systems of engagement” that enable new ways to treat patients more quickly and more long-term. Microsoft platforms and services lay the trusted foundation for such solutions, so health providers and payors, public health or social services agencies, and pharmaceutical companies can improve patient and employee experiences, empower researchers, and enhance products and services in the face of increasing cost pressures. www.microsoft.com

Premier Inc.

Premier, a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award recipient, plays a critical role in the rapidly evolving healthcare industry, collaborating with members to co-develop long-term innovations that reinvent and improve the way care is delivered to patients nationwide.

Whether you’re challenged by regulations (such as HIPPA, the HITECH Act and/or Meaningful Use for ICD-10), the migration from fee-for-service to fee-for-value, medical and customer data floods or just overall cost pressures, Sirius can help. www.siriuscom.com/solutions/healthcare

White Paper

Warrior Centric Health® (WCH) is the nation’s first commercial health equity solutions provider, helping hospitals address costly readmissions problems by offering tools to provide more effective care for populations that account for disproportionate shares of readmissions.

The Warrior Centric Solution Suite® gives hospitals the means to meet the needs of military veterans and their families—close to a quarter of the entire U.S. population—who are affected by a wide and unique set of health issues that go widely untreated by the private healthcare systems, where 90% receive their healthcare. Healthcare institutions gain the ability to locate and treat these people more equitably, thus closing care gaps, reducing readmissions and delivering ROI, while “making hospitals heroes.” warriorcentrichealth.com

White Paper

Healthcare is undergoing a transformation from fee-for-service to value-based reimbursements. An ever-increasing emphasis on quality is a noticeable trend within the industry. Adding to the challenge is the void of tools designed to accurately assess and report with quality in mind.

Our solution is MDAR. Through collaboration with healthcare leaders, Dacarba has launched the data-driven, Medical Diagnosis Accuracy Reporting (MDAR) application. This streamlined CDI tool provides an equal playing field across healthcare institutions by accurately reflecting quality of care.

MDAR paints a transparent picture of each patient’s comorbidities which leads to improved quality outcomes boosting physician credibility and hospital reputation. www.dacarba.com/Healthcare-Technology
