EMHS is an innovative organization providing industry leadership on how LTPAC providers and technology can be integrated into new care delivery and payment models. Their patient-centered approach to care coordination embraces the spectrum of providers and integration of community services. Technology plays an important role in coordination of care programs for priority populations who are high-risk/high cost. EMHC has been able to demonstrate improved outcomes and reduced costs through their telehealth program.
EMHS is advancing their HIT infrastructure in step with new health care innovation grant programs including the Beacon Community Grant, which along with the PCMH and Pioneer ACO have helped to spearhead additional support for the organization's technical infrastructure including expansion of the statewide HIE, deploying the PowerChart cross-enterprise patient EHR, and prioritizing interfaces between systems that improve access and efficiency of clinical users. EMHC exchanges health information in multiple ways with clinical partners during transition of care and when delivering home care services. There is still greater potential to expand the use of technology to increase electronic HIE, but it will take time to allow for systems and HIT standards to mature.
