What is HealtheParadigm?
is the new private health information network in Georgia created to allow connected physicians, health care facilities and other health care providers to share real-time patient information. As a result of establishing the network, participants will have access to powerful analytic reports designed to help improve patient encounters and clinical outcomes while also empowering physicians as they transition to the new alternative payment models involving quality reporting, advancing care information, clinical practice improvements and resource use. The Medical Association of Georgia and KaMMCO Health Solutions (KHS) have partnered to offer the aforementioned products and services across the state.
When will HealtheParadigm be live?
From an organizational development perspective, the work has been underway for several months. As the only provider-led health information network in the state, a MAG advisory committee began meeting in early August to discuss relevant policies and to establish pricing structures for both MAG members and non-members. The technology solution will be ready for participants to begin the integration process this fall.
Who will benefit from this new venture in Georgia?
Patients, physicians, health care facilities and other health care providers across the state, especially the members of the Medical Association of Georgia, will realize the benefits of such a forward-thinking endeavor. While using connectivity to improve patient point-of care encounters, this partnership will empower Georgia physicians as they transition to the new models of healthcare delivery, quality reporting, and performance-based payments. Once again, MAG has positioned itself to lead the way.
How will this HIE be different than what is established in Georgia now?
The MAG-KHS partnership is a physician-led effort with an advisory committee comprised of physician leaders. This physician-led approach which will build upon a proven model for the development of the technical infrastructure necessary to enable the sharing of clinical information at the point of care, while supporting value based payment models, care management, and data analytics that will ultimately, transform healthcare delivery across the country. There is not another HIE in Georgia now that is delivering actionable intelligence such as this to its participants.
network will work collaboratively with the already established RHIOs across to state to help make interoperability a reality in Georgia.
How is this financed?
The network, including the data sharing technology infrastructure and business intelligence reporting capabilities, is built on a low cost subscription model. The unique factors in the HealtheParadigm
equation which help keep the fees reasonable are two-fold -- the physician-led approach which ensures physician needs are at the forefront of the MAG effort, combined with the KHS leadership team who all played key roles in the development and continued success of the Kansas Health Information Network (KHIN). As a result of the unique MAG-KHS partnership, KHS will call upon the already proven technology partner relationships, integration protocols, and project team expertise to deliver the products at a reasonable expense in Georgia.
