What is HealtheParadigm?
HealtheParadigm is the private health information network in Georgia created to allow connected physicians, health care facilities and other health care providers to share patient information. As a result of establishing the network, participants 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 (MAG) and KAMMCO have partnered to offer the aforementioned products and services across the state.
Who benefits from HealtheParadigm?
Patients, physicians, health care facilities and other health care providers across the state, especially the members of the Medical Association of Georgia, realize the benefits of such a forward-thinking endeavor. While using connectivity to improve patient point-of care encounters, this partnership empowers Georgia physicians as they transition to the new models of health care 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 available in Georgia now?
The MAG-KAMMCO partnership is a physician-led effort with an advisory committee comprised of physician leaders. This physician-led approach which builds 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 can ultimately transform health care delivery across the country. There is not another HIE in Georgia now that is delivering actionable intelligence such as this to its participants.
The HealtheParadigm network works 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 KAMMCO 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-KAMMCO partnership, KAMMCO calls upon the already proven technology partner relationships, integration protocols, and project team expertise to deliver the products at a reasonable expense in Georgia.
