ST. LOUIS, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Signature Medical Group, Inc. is driving innovation in the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative through its value-based service, Signature Care Management (Signature). Signature is building on its award-winning care coordination and analytics platform, CareMOSAIC, to integrate powerful new features to drive success in the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s latest value-based care model, BPCI Advanced. The new version, CareMOSAIC Advanced, incorporates a number of new and expanded features, including:
Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs)
PROs will be an essential quality element in BPCI Advanced. While PROs are currently included in CareMOSAIC, Signature is expanding PRO (PROMIS 10, HOOS JR, KOOS JR, VR-12) capabilities to facilitate collection, reporting, and benchmarking of data to drive improved outcomes. CareMOSAIC Advanced incorporates ePROs to engage patients, increase PRO completion rates, and help case managers more effectively manage their time. This PRO expansion capitalizes on Signature’s innovative CareMOSAIC software that currently links financial and clinical outcomes and incorporates PROs to drive predictive modeling.
Patient Engagement and Education
CareMOSAIC Advanced utilizes secure, HIPAA-compliant messaging to drive patient engagement. Patient engagement methods include ePROS, patient reminders, and ad-hoc messaging to facilitate communication between patients and their care providers. While CareMOSAIC is currently a mobile app available on all platforms for care providers, the Advanced version is being rolled out to patients to drive improved engagement, satisfaction, and outcomes. The new version includes a patient-focused health education library.
Capitalizing on its experience, Signature is building a predictive modeling tool to link financial, clinical, and PRO data utilizing the latest Data Science techniques. Signature combines its clinical care and data analytics expertise with the best of Business Intelligence (BI), Healthcare Analytics, and Machine Learning (ML) to produce an industry leading Predictive Care Model and Forecasting Engine to drive optimized performance in BPCI Advanced.
“CareMOSAIC is a flexible and dynamic system that has successfully managed over 150,000 episodes of care in the past three years at over 50 healthcare organizations,” said Scott Paneitz, Signature CIO, “As a dual-facing software platform, clinical and financial elements streamline care coordination workflows and guide strategic planning which is critical to success in bundled payments. The release of CareMOSAIC Advanced demonstrates Signature’s continued leadership and innovation in episode management solutions.”
