Introducing Hospital Connect

October 17, 2017
October 17, 2017

Dear Quatris Customers,

The value of patient care is the single most important factor of success for healthcare organizations transitioning to value-based care. Care coordination across delivery settings is one powerful way for ambulatory practices to increase that value by enhancing care quality, reducing cost of care, and improving patient satisfaction.

However, care coordination has been challenging for the healthcare system. For ambulatory practices, current referral and information flow processes can waste provider and staff time and lack flexibility. Hospitals face the same challenges and also suffer from limited or no access to ambulatory records or detailed care plans, especially after-hours.

As a leader in standards-based interoperability, GE Healthcare has demonstrated that seamless clinical data integration among different providers and healthcare organizations can facilitate care coordination, thereby helping to increase the value of care delivered.

That’s why GE is pleased to introduce Hospital Connect. This new solution, a part of Project Northstar, provides real-time access to clinical data from thousands of acute and ambulatory healthcare organizations via a single interface to the cloud. In addition, by integrating selected data into providers’ native workflow, this solution can save an hour per provider per day1 in chart reviews.

Hospital Connect is one of the first products in the new GE Centricity Healthcare Connections family that is intended to simplify your ability to communicate and collaborate with the greater healthcare community. Join us in a webinar hosted by GE to learn more.

Independently thriving: Save time with Hospital Connect

2:30PM-3:30PM EDT | 11:30AM-12:30PM PDT

We’re excited to introduce these innovative connectivity solutions. Learn more about Centricity Healthcare Connections and Hospital Connect in the upcoming GE press release, in the GE eBook, or by joining the webinar.

October 2, 2017 marks the beginning of the last 90-day reporting period for MIPS

September 26, 2017

Under the “Pick your Pace” option of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), if you submit 90 days of 2017 data to Medicare, you may earn a neutral or positive payment adjustment and may even earn the maximum adjustment for the 2019 payment year.

The start of the last 90-day reporting period is October 2nd, giving you a 90-day reporting period of October 2, 2017 – December 31, 2017 for each of the 3 components of MIPS: Advancing Care Information, Quality and Improvement Activities.

If you have not already started your MIPS preparations for 2017, now is the time!
