4medica Introduces Cloud-Based Disease Management Solution

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 -- 4medica today introduced the 4medica Disease Management Solution, a cloud-based system to help hospitals, health systems and care delivery organizations manage patient population health, enhance physician/patient communication, and aggregate data for analytics. 4medica provides the industry's leading cloud clinical integration platform and solutions.

Designed to improve patient and specialist engagement in order to create a holistic population view, the integrated 4medica Disease Management Solution includes:

  • Secure patient messaging to keep patients actively engaged with physicians and in their own care;
  • Patient Health Record (PHR), an effortless way for patients to become true custodians of their health records and to communicate with doctors;
  • Configurable patient lists that allow physicians to manage populations proactively using disease management-specific criteria;
  • Red alerts to notify physicians of abnormal test results for timely action;
  • Mobile functionality via iPhone®, iPad®, Blackberry® 6+ and Android™ smartphones and tablets, which provides real time, 24/7 physician access to patient data;
  • 4medica Big Data MPI to de-duplicate patient information from multiple disparate sources;
  • A normalization engine, which analyzes incoming data streams and performs 21 different transformations into standard formats and vocabularies, including transforming test codes to LOINC codes, among others;
  • Analytics-ready output that delivers the aggregated data set to third-party analytics applications; and
  • Internal clinical analytics that physicians or other clinicians who use the 4medica ad hoc reporting module can use to run queries at the point of service. For example: "Show me all patients aged 65+ with HgA1c greater than 7."

As changing demographics bring more chronically ill patients into the healthcare system, public and private sector insurers have introduced financial incentives to control costs and prevent avoidable hospital stays. The resulting shift in payment models from volume to value has created a corollary shift in care models, from inpatient to ambulatory, and beyond, to patient homes and communities.

"Patient engagement is critical to the success of emerging payment and care models," said 4medica founder and CEO, Oleg Bess, M.D. "And to further engage, organizations must facilitate longitudinal relationships with their populations, based on consistent, impactful physician/patient communication. The 4medica Disease Management Solution addresses both sides of the relationship, giving both physicians and patients the tools to acquire the data they need, make sense of the data they acquire, and act on the information it produces."
