Companies mentioned in this article: ZeOmega Inc.

SEATTLE -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ZeOmega Inc., the premier provider of solutions for population health management, has announced the forthcoming release of Jiva™ 5.6, the newest version of its market-leading population health management platform. The release includes new features and functionality that further expand Jiva’s already-robust capabilities to support successful accountable care and value-based health delivery models.

Jiva 5.6, which is scheduled for general availability this summer, offers a comprehensive array of enhancements to help healthcare organizations deliver sophisticated population health management programs that efficiently enhance the value of health care services. This major release features a streamlined user interface that simplifies gathering of patient assessment data, new dashboards and registries, enhanced care transition capabilities, and streamlined connectivity with clinical data sources. Additionally, several technological infrastructure enhancements will enable Jiva to consume increasingly diverse and larger volumes of data, a capability that will become critical as more stakeholders use Jiva to drive care collaboration.

According to Christopher Mathews MD, senior vice president and chief medical officer for ZeOmega, Jiva’s new enhancements will address a number of CMS and other regulatory requirements. “Jiva 5.6 makes it easier than ever to focus on and improve performance for a number of Medicare Advantage STAR ratings and ACO performance measures,” says Dr. Mathews. “Additionally, Jiva 5.6 also includes medication review and management capabilities. These capabilities represent the first phase of a broader ZeOmega initiative to launch a completely integrated, CMS-compliant Medication Therapy Management solution in 2015.”

“Jiva 5.6 exemplifies ZeOmega’s successful approach of anticipating market needs to provide deployment-ready solutions as these needs become reality,” says Nandini Rangaswamy, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for ZeOmega. “The enhancements in Jiva 5.6 mark a turning point in the evolution of Jiva as the population health management infrastructure for an entire healthcare ecosystem that spans payers, providers and other healthcare organizations taking on clinical and financial risk. This milestone is the result of our team’s strong domain expertise, driven by strategic market analysis and direct client feedback.”

Jiva 5.6’s latest enhancements include:

  • A set of provider dashboards that allow ZeOmega clients to examine provider utilization, clinical quality, and service quality. It also helps monitor overall performance and enables clients to direct providers on areas of improvement.
  • An enhanced population healthcare management registry that is designed to, among other things, streamline and automate patient identification and stratification processes according to CMS qualification guidelines, improve gaps-in-care functionality, and identify and monitor high-risk admission/readmission patients based on proprietary algorithms within a powerful inpatient census view.
  • Upgrades to the integration architecture that enable seamless connectivity with diverse clinical data sources.
  • Upgrades to Jiva’s Sentinel Rules Engine to enable rules-based predictive, retrospective and prescriptive analytics using EMR, self-reported and claims data. This will streamline clinical performance measurement and management across the care continuum.

“ZeOmega’s view of a population health management solution is not restricted to care analytics or workflow, but also includes effective engagement of increasingly diverse stakeholders to improve overall health at lower costs,” says Ms. Rangaswamy. “Jiva 5.6 brings additional capabilities to what was already the leading population health management solution on the market today, offering market-ready features and functionality that organizations need to compete and succeed in the post-reform environment.” Ms. Rangaswamy concludes, “These enhancements aren’t concepts, they’re functioning solutions that can be deployed to meet immediate needs, yet offer the adaptability and configurability to meet long-term goals. This is ZeOmega’s hallmark, and something we’re proud to continue with Jiva 5.6, and future releases as well.”

ZeOmega will demonstrate Jiva 5.6 in booth 343 at AHIP Institute 2014, June 11-13 in Seattle. Attendees wishing to schedule a demo should visit www.ZeOmega.com/AHIP14.
