DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 10/02/13 -- Phytel, the leader in automated, provider-led population health improvement, has been selected to demonstrate its advanced care management technology at the upcoming Health 2.0 conference, which will take place October 7-11 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.
Phytel will demonstrate how its population health management platform can improve health outcomes by linking financial and performance analytics with care management and population health tools. The combined platform enables healthcare organizations to identify and address high-cost or low-performing areas within their organization.
The demonstration also will highlight Phytel's ability to improve patient engagement by contacting patients in the most convenient manner via mobile communications -- text, email and phone. Studies show that patients who are contacted by their physicians are more likely to schedule appointments to fill critical gaps in their care such as recommended tests and exams. The technology is especially critical to the health of chronic disease patients who need to be closely engaged in their own care to stay healthy.
The demonstration will take place during the Big Data Tools for Population Health session on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 11:30 am Pacific Time, in Ballroom C of the Santa Clara Convention Center.
"As healthcare payment models shift from traditional fee-for-service arrangements to value-based care, demand is growing for solutions that combine financial analytics, risk assessment, and quality improvement with automated care management tools," said Phytel CEO Steve Schelhammer. "We're proud to present these innovations at Health 2.0, a premier conference in the industry focused on technologies that engage consumers in improving their overall health."
Phytel's Population Health Management platform incorporates clinical and claims data from electronic health records, practice management and other systems, and delivers a suite of tools for automating care gap identification, risk stratification, care management, patient engagement, transitions of care, and performance evaluation. The technology is ideally suited to Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH), which require accurate data and tools to help stratify their patient population and scale their care management resources.
The premier company empowering physician-led population health improvement, Phytel provides physicians with proven technology to deliver timely, coordinated care to their patients. Phytel's state-of-the-art registry, which now encompasses more than 30 million patients nationwide, uses evidence-based chronic and preventive care protocols to identify and notify patients due for service, while tracking compliance and measuring quality and financial results. Phytel is ISO 9001:2008 certified, confirming adherence to ISO's internationally recognized Total Quality Management (TQM) standards. For more information, please visit www.phytel.com.
