Putting the Pieces Together for Quality Healthcare

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 1/29/21 9:02 AM


There are few things as satisfying as placing the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle in the correct spot.

January 29, 2021, is National Puzzle Day and even though finishing a jigsaw puzzle may be satisfying, solving unique problems specific to healthcare is another area worth celebrating.

If you’re up to the challenge, having a comprehensive healthcare IT solution like eClinicalWorks by your side won’t complete the puzzle for you but ensures that you’ll have a complete set of tools to guide you through the process.

The pieces to a complete healthcare solution with eClinicalWorks look a little something like this.

Quality care begins with caring providers, but long-term wellness depends on a way for patients to take control of their own health when possible. Some of the tools that we have available to further engage patients include:

  • An online appointment booking method where patients can book an appointment at a time that is convenient to them and their provider
  • A safe and secure contactless check-in method that lets patients check in to their appointment from the comfort of their home and reduce the spread of infectious disease by limiting time spent in the waiting room
  • A telehealth solution that patients can count on and that helps combat challenges of distance, convenience, and safety
  • A series of apps and a Patient Portal where patients can easily stay up to date on health information, including data compiled from wearable health devices

Nothing better captures the complexities of modern healthcare than Population Health, the science of combining data and analysis to better anticipate and respond to trends found in healthcare. Some of the Population Health tools that could help your practice include:

  • Customizable modules for Chronic Care Management, Transition Care Management, and Care Plan Oversight
  • Disease Explorer, a tool designed for better visibility and sharper insight into patient populations by enabling practices to group patients into cohorts based on common needs
  • HEDIS® Analytics offers point-of-care tools designed to improve quality of care by identifying and helping practices close gaps in care

In an age of value-based medicine, having comprehensive clinical data at the point of care is vital for safe and effective medicine. eClinicalWorks leads the way with a number of interoperability solutions.

  • Providers can easily turn on and gain access to data from the nationwide Carequality and CommonWell® Health Alliance networks
  • PRISMA, our health information search engine, allows providers to easily sift through, analyze, and assess information from nationwide interoperability networks, payers, and wearable health devices
  • Explore innovation on the data frontier through the eClinicalWorks Open Interoperability development platform, which allows third-party developers to build patient-facing and provider-facing healthcare applications using FHIR®
