Can payers and at-risk providers get a new care management system up and running in a flash?
In a word, yes. Recently, we rolled out HMS® Essette Care Management for an at-risk provider in five weeks – compared to the industry average of six months.
Because our customer deemed the platform such a good fit – and since Essette Care Management includes turn-key National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) compliant content – the software required no customizations nor extensive configuration before activation.
We’ve designed our entire lineup of HMS Essette solutions and modules to meet the varied needs of healthcare organizations. In addition to Care Management, our web-based platform includes Utilization Management and Population Management solutions. These tools help risk-bearing organizations identify, engage, and better manage patient populations in order to improve financial and clinical outcomes.
Our system is easy to operate by non-computer experts, streamlining usage. It allows for tailored customization/configuration and integrates with a wide array of other products. This flexibility means you get diverse reporting tools and care management programs that can grow along with your membership.
