Streamlined, bi-directional communication platform enables information sharing, with or without an EMR system.
Dallas, TX, February 21, 2014 – Sandlot Solutions, a leading community health interoperability and analytics provider, today announced the addition of a new solution, Sandlot Connect Lite. A module of the full Sandlot Connect solution, Connect Lite serves as an electronic notification service, providing the first level of information sharing between ambulatory and inpatient healthcare settings. Hospitals can quickly notify ambulatory care providers of patient visits, promoting more efficient care coordination and management. Faster, easier access to this essential patient information provides immediate value to clinicians without extensive information technology system development or investment – even for practices that do not yet have an electronic medical records (EMR) system.
Connect Lite offers simple, quick implementation and deployment, with flexible technology that seamlessly integrates with existing infrastructures, processes and systems. While cost-effective, it enables healthcare organizations to increase electronic communications by receiving notification in the Sandlot portal or in a DIRECT-enabled inbox, a streamlined start towards greater clinical integration. Connect Lite facilitates higher quality care and helps increase revenue and achieve cost savings for care communities and medical homes as well as Medicare populations through more accurate documentation and capturing a larger portion of Medicare Transitional Care Management CPT codes. As organizations grow and their business needs evolve, they can build upon Connect Lite to expand their capabilities.
“In today’s healthcare landscape, clinicians need immediate access to important patient information like hospital visits – but every organization has different IT timelines and resources,” said Derek Plansky, Vice President, Product Development, Sandlot Solutions. “We’re excited to offer a simple, cost-effective stepping stone for information sharing. It’s a solid foundation to all of the capabilities we offer – greater exchange of information, analytics and community care management.”
Connect Lite is available now to the healthcare provider community. Sandlot Solutions will be exhibiting at HIMSS14 in Orlando from February 23-27, Booth #5783. Attendees are invited to visit the booth to learn more about Connect Lite and the company’s full suite of products.
