Patient safety is a critical element of value-based care. Health Systems aim to improve safety by improving upon care delivery and a careful adoption of industry-leading software solutions for optimal patient satisfaction.
Focus on Complex Cases
Health Systems financial success depends on improved care delivery for high-risk Medicare beneficiaries. This 12 million segment of patients account for 25% of Medicare population, but account for 85% of Medicare spending. One major safety risk is this population regularly uses more than 5 medications.
Improperly managing medications is a threat to health systems.
Adverse drug-related problems account for 30% of hospitalization cases.
Polypharmacy increases the risk of adverse drug events, low adherence and can lowers treatment effectiveness.
To get practicable evaluations of high risk medications as well as problems stemming from polypharmacy, Health Systems need real-time actionable data on their patient population. The aim of the RXGeneAlert risk management system platform is to provide a summary of patient risks at a glance. ProGeneX Laboratories provides the most comprehensive gene panel.
The RXGeneAlert risk management system identifies patients at risk for adverse drug events because of genetic mutations. With this information, physicians can prevent patients experiencing health problems such as falls, readmissions and other adverse effects of high risk drug use.
"Pro-GeneX helped us improve quality of care and reduce costs at the same time."
- Tyler McGee, Sterling Health
Patient experience and readmissions are tied directly to medication drug trial-and-error prescribing methodology. Symptoms, complaints and interpreting the true nature of a patient's condition is complicated when time and resources are stretched. Fortunately, people's one-of-a-kind DNA communicates the way a body metabolizes medications decreasing the time necessary to become therapeutic while reducing the overall occurrences of Adverse Drug Events (ADE). Both are critical in reducing the time spent in the hospital and lowering readmission rates, thereby improving the bottom line.
Due to mandates from CMS and other agencies, hospitals and health care systems increasingly need actionable data on their patients as well as outcomes. Our skilled staff of regulatory experts can help hospital partners collect the right data which assists in providing CMS reports that demonstrate compliance with Core Quality Measures, Value-Based Purchasing, and other important new metrics. These metrics for hospital reimbursements changing create an opportunity to be competitive with other organizations who are slow to adapt.
