New ACM and EHR Solutions Catalyzing the Success of Clinicians

The strategic collaboration is enhancing health outcomes while reducing costs and prioritizing the needs of the patients by providing an improved workflow.  

FREMONT, CA: Change Healthcare's InterQual AutoReview and InterQual Connect Medical Review Service has been integrated with a global healthcare technology company, Cerner Corporation's Acute Case Management (ACM) solution and electronic health record (EHR). Cerner clients will be able to help their case managers in a more streamlined manner and efficiently prioritize patients' needs by providing an enhanced workflow. Cerner's ACM solution operates to mitigate readmission rates, receive appropriate reimbursement, and boost staff efficiencies by connecting clinical and financial information and automating within the EHR. The collaboration helps case managers provide patients with apt services in the right setting. Case managers can now eye the status of medical reviews and cases that are completed, and allocate time to those that are incomplete, thereby, enhancing efficiency.  

With case managers in healthcare having a range of responsibilities, verifying patients' health insurance coverage and benefits is a must. With many different roles, the mitigating administrative burden for case managers helps them in optimizing time to center efforts on assisting patients with the care they require. Cerner clients will be able to use intelligence for automating a prior manual process, providing case managers and clinicians with more time to focus on patients and quality of care.
