Rockville, Maryland — Get Real Health is proud to announce a formalized and updated partnership with Caradigm, the joint venture between GE Healthcare and Microsoft, at the HIMSS13 annual meeting in New Orleans. This partnership brings an integrated offering to Caradigm customers that includes Get Real Health’s award-winning InstantPHR™ comprehensive patient engagement platform with the Caradigm Intelligence Platform (CIP), the next generation of Amalga. Caradigm’s flexible, cloud-based intelligence platform and applications help healthcare organizations improve care quality, optimize revenue and cost, and manage population health through the use of near real-time data.
Get Real Health’s InstantPHR™ is one of the applications that runs on the Caradigm Intelligence Platform, specifically to target population health management. InstantPHR™ provides a comprehensive patient engagement application designed to help healthcare providers reduce non-reimbursable readmissions by improving patient care treatment compliance and provide a means to track patient health metrics.
“I continue to be impressed with Caradigm’s team, their products and their healthcare management vision,” said Get Real Health CEO Mark Heaney. “I see our relationship not only as an extremely valuable asset, but as an opportunity to leverage our synergies and amplify our companies’ effectiveness in improving the healthcare system for all stakeholders.”
Toward that end, the Caradigm Intelligence Platform represents the next generation of its Amalga product. This new iteration introduces features designed to help organizations rapidly address big challenges, such as readmissions, clinical surveillance or Meaningful Use, while lowering the total cost of ownership.
Moreover, CIP offers a host of benefits that, with its inclusion of InstantPHR™, make it an especially powerful solution — enabling patient-directed care plans, tailored patient educational resources, alerts and reminders, health journaling, secured messaging, plus data sharing with family members and other caregivers. Designed to fit active, multiple-device lifestyles, these capabilities are available to patients and healthcare providers on all PC and mobile browsers.
“The Caradigm Intelligence Platform is designed to accelerate the delivery of new applications that solve tough and pervasive problems facing the industry,” said Brandon Savage, Chief Medical Officer, Caradigm. “Get Real’s InstantPHR product is an example of this innovation and will help providers more easily connect with patients and improve their experience while meeting Meaningful Use objectives for patient engagement.”
The Caradigm Intelligence Platform—along with Get Real Health’s InstantPHR™ product—will be demonstrated at booth #1323 during HIMSS 2013 in New Orleans. The Platform and select applications (including Get Real Health’s InstantPHR™) are commercially available immediately.
