Physician Medical Groups
Clinical Network Benefits for Physician Medical Groups, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and Independent Physician Associations (IPAs)Over the last decade, the US Office of National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology has been mandating various measures to create, promote and sustain clinical interoperability between providers, health systems, ambulatory service providers, and patients. This strategy, combined with market readiness, prompted tremendous growth in electronic health record (EHR) software market. EHR vendors have promoted the creation of paperless medical processes, enhancing internal workflows within practices, hospitals and service facilities. Today, over 750 various EHR systems have been deployed by 80% of US-based physicians and organizations. However, EHR systems were not designed for interoperability between facilities and providers. Over 80% of clinical information is transmitted by fax, mail, and as attachments to emails. This results in patient chart fragmentation, impacts care coordination and inhibits adoption of shared risk models, such as ACO.
With the advent of accountability in healthcare and industry switch to shared risk models, clinical interoperability became the biggest challenge for the industry. Health Gorilla offers a unique clinical interoperability solution for ACOs and IPAs, interconnecting affiliated members with hospital systems, ambulatory providers, service facilities, sub-acute centers, diagnostic labs, imaging centers and patients, while allowing the ACO management to establish, monitor and adjust clinical workflows throughout affiliated eco-system.
