Supporting organizations and members alike, the latest Medecision care management solution drives efficiency while providing ultimate flexibility and control so care managers can engage hard-to-reach members
DALLAS, March 27, 2018 — Medecision, the leader in population health management solutions for risk-bearing entities, announced today it has launched its newest application from the company’s collection of care management solutions, Aerial CarePlanner 360™. Aerial CarePlanner 360™ provides care teams with advanced capabilities and enhanced mobile functionality to improve their organization’s efficiency and flexibility while driving better health outcomes for the hardest-to-reach patients. The application is the latest addition to Medecision’s Aerial™ platform, a collection of complex care management solutions with advanced data analytics to drive streamlined care management workflows for more than 16,000 care managers nationwide.
With a mobile-first philosophy, Aerial CarePlanner 360™ advances the next generation of care management for health plans and risk-bearing providers who want to zero in on the holistic health of members within high-risk and rising-risk populations. The application supports both organizations and members by reinforcing a modernized care management approach, using mobile, intelligence-driven functions to provide individualized, person-centric care.
Leveraging Medecision’s decades of experience helping the country’s largest health plans and care management companies advance their care planning processes, the application improves both the member and care manager experience through mobile functionality. This untethered approach to care management allows for more focused engagement via targeted assessments that drive personalized care plans, direction to the right providers and support to help members feel their needs have been met. Aerial CarePlanner 360™ offers capabilities for in-field teams to seamlessly manage the most fragile patients and members anywhere and anytime. Care managers are provided with better visualization, including more targeted assessments to guide conversations with members based on the most up-to-date clinical best practices. Additionally, the application saves valuable time by allowing care teams to ask and gather insight for 60 percent fewer questions compared to structured program-based assessments, while still maintaining accreditation standards and adhering to evidence-based protocol.
“We serve some of the most progressive organizations in healthcare, requiring us to push ourselves to evolve care management capabilities and engage members where they are, regardless of the obstacles produced by various social determinants of health,” said Deborah Gage, President and CEO at Medecision. “Today’s care managers need modern tools that empower them to deliver on the needs of the hardest-to-reach members at the point of care. We’re here to change the way care is delivered by ushering in mobile care management.”
Aerial CarePlanner 360™ improves member engagement and care manager satisfaction with an analytics-driven and optimized experience that will accomplish the following:
- Allow care managers greater flexibility of care setting through in-field, untethered mobile functionality
- Streamline sophisticated analytics and data visualizations to incorporate newly identified insights and optimize caseload and case priorities
- Offer URAC- and NCQA-compliant assessments and care plans that support personalized interventions and barrier identification, allowing for seamless comorbidity management to support HEDIS measures
- Provide evidence-based recommendations, actions and potential barriers that adjust in real time based on new data and are tailored for the whole person—not just a condition
- Improve medication insight unique to each member based on up-to-date care plans so care managers can reconcile medication and reduce adverse complications due to medication and associated costs
Medecision remains on the leading edge of care management with continued growth of its platform-plus-apps approach powered by robust analytics. The company recently expanded the Aerial platform’s capabilities with the acquisition of over 50 health plan clients from AxisPoint Health and addition of 10 new applications launched in the last 18 months. Medecision will introduce another new application later this year, Aerial UM Connector™, which will help healthcare organizations managing Medicare and Medicaid lives improve productivity with automated, analytics driven real-time authorizations and referrals.
