Lumeris has launched its Virtual Care Access Package solution to help payers and providers prevent hospitalisations during the COVID-19 crisis. The solution will provide COVID-19 specific models, analytics and services that have been designed to help organisations analyse system-wide COVID-19 impacts. It will also help them to more effectively identify, prioritize and engage with high-risk patients as per the company.
Michael Cousins, chief analytics officer, at Lumeris said, “Provider organizations are facing unprecedented resource constraints due to the COVID-19 pandemic and need solutions that leverage resources more efficiently. We developed this predictive model to help PCPs and care teams proactively manage their high-risk patients and to potentially avoid hospitalizations. This model is easy to implement and can integrate into an organization’s existing EHR workflows to optimize resource capacity as needed.”
The Virtual Care Access Package solution will consist of Health System COVID-19 Diagnostic and Reporting to analyse potential clinical, financial and operational impacts of COVID-19 to the enterprise. It will also consist of open source COVID-19 Predictive Analytics to identify, stratify and prioritize outreach and resources for those patients most at risk for hospitalization.
MyPCP Stay in Touch program
It will also consist of COVID-19 Patient Engagement Solutions to expand care team capacity and manage high-risk patients through an existing electronic health record (EHR), the MyPCP Stay in Touch program. This program will enable expansion of primary care practice capacity to manage high-risk patients. The company said that it will use intelligent software to automate routine health checks. It is equipped with texting outreach capability that will help care teams to stay in touch with their patients virtually, prioritising resources for those patients in most need.
Dr. Alexander Rudoi, a primary care physician in St. Louis said, “In my practice, having the automated Stay in Touch program allows me and my care team to streamline how we engage with all of our patients, which is a game-changer for success in population health. With this program we have a way to monitor our healthy patients while proactively outreaching to our highest risk patients, potentially avoiding hospitalizations and freeing up capacity during this pandemic.”
