MDdatacor, Inc., a leader in health care quality management solutions for insurers and health care providers, announced that its MDinsight® clinical quality system will help hospitals and physicians achieve many of the meaningful use requirements as outlined in the recently announced final rules of the HITECH Act.

“The MDinsight® system was designed specifically to support quality measurement and improvement, as well as facilitate the sharing of critical patient data across providers and care settings. Its sophisticated functionality in these areas is a natural fit with EMRs to help providers improve the quality of patient care and maximize health information technology to achieve meaningful use,” said Tim Roche, co-founder and CEO of MDdatacor.

The MDinsight® system uses patented technology to automate the collection of patient clinical data from all of a physician practice’s disparate data sources, including electronic medical record (EMR), practice management, lab, and registry systems — even transcribed notes. Aggregating data from multiple sources provides physicians with the most comprehensive clinical patient information available. The system’s robust analytics engine analyzes data against evidence-based guidelines to help physicians identify care opportunities among their patients.

The system also provides physicians with the ability to seamlessly and securely exchange patient clinical data across primary care physicians and specialists. This means that a physician encountering a new patient can instantly access the patient’s previous lab results, medication and treatment histories from other providers, as well as view gaps in care. The sharing of data improves care coordination, providing enhanced opportunities for clinical improvement and better patient care.

MDinsight® meets the following meaningful use requirements:

– Generate lists of patients by condition

– Send reminders to patients for preventive/ follow-up care

– Implement clinical decision support rules related to clinical priority and track compliance

– Provide patients with a clinical summary

– Electronically exchange key clinical information among providers and other entities

– Electronically report ambulatory quality measures to CMS and/or states

– Submit electronic data to state immunization registries

– Provide electronic surveillance data to public health agencies

In addition to helping providers meet the meaningful use requirements, the MDinsight® system supports other health care quality-focused initiatives such as clinical integration, medical home models of care, pay-for-performance and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).
