ACOs face a unique set of challenges as industry leaders continue to pave the way toward true coordination of care through provider collaboration. IDS provides the infrastructure and IT expertise to help ACOs succeed. In order to meet the goals of reducing healthcare costs and increasing efficiencies, ACOs look to actively manage care and improve patient outcomes. This requires a robust technology platform for data and communication exchange. IDS provides these core components through its Platform as a Service (PaaS) and software applications plus its “know-how” for implementing a viable and sustainable ACO data network.
IDS technology provides a reliable and secure architecture for sharing and exchanging data. By eliminating barriers across systems or organizations, IDS fosters an environment of cooperation and collaboration. This reduces risk by preventing medication and other errors, minimizes unnecessary or duplicate diagnostic tests, and lowers hospital re-admissions.
IDS’ modular, Software as a Service (SaaS) approach means ACOs can choose one application, such as electronic health records for charting or a number of applications that work seamlessly together for a comprehensive, complete package. We have solutions to help coordinate patient care and integrate disparate information systems. Our applications also help manage patient engagement, clinical documentation, and referrals.
Managing patient care through clinical data integration and real-time data exchange allows ACOs to add value to their members and play an important role in improving patient care and health outcomes.
