Alliance develops home health software to optimise patient care

Misys Healthcare Systems : 25 June, 2007  (New Product)
A strategic alliance has been agreed between Misys Healthcare Systems and OCS to integrate powerful online performance measurement systems, analytic software and predictive modeling reporting tools that will be delivered as part of the Misys Homecare software solution.
The systems and tools will be delivered as part of the Misys Homecare software solution.

The collaboration will help homecare agencies optimise patient care while reducing hospital readmissions and overall healthcare costs associated with chronic disease.

A proven, easy to use home health IT solution, Misys Homecare integrates clinical, financial and administrative capabilities, addressing the growing challenges of homecare and hospice agencies.

As the innovator in data-driven healthcare information solutions, OCS combined the most extensive post-acute healthcare data warehouse with cutting edge analytics to launch the industry's first predictive modelling tool.

As a new feature to its homecare software, Misys will employ the OCS predictive modelling capability, which utilises statistical models and the wealth of patient data available in the homecare industry to predict an individual patient's level of risk.

Predictive modelling, which forecasts the likelihood of future events based on data from the past, enables agencies to improve disease management, patient outcomes, cost and profitability and resource planning in home health agencies.

'This relationship combines our leadership in data-driven patient-level performance measurement systems with Misys' expertise as one of the leading providers of clinical and business solutions for the healthcare market', said Amanda Twiss, OCS president.

'Working together, we will be able to help clients improve patient outcomes while optimising agency operations by combining Misys' unparalleled technologies with OCS's best of breed data warehouse'.

'This partnership will provide the most compelling offerings available in the home healthcare market today as well as offerings to prepare clients for future industry developments'.

'Predictive modelling is a ground breaking tool empowering caregivers with vital data and comprehensive metrics highlighting the clinical, financial and operational health of their agency', said Gary Larson, business manager of Misys Healthcare Systems Homecare Business Unit.

'With the addition of OCS benchmarking and predictive modelling, our customers will be able to deliver the highest quality of care with optimal operational efficiency'.

'Customers can also use these tools to understand and prepare for the impact of industry changes such as Prospective Payment System (PPS) adjustments and Pay-For-Performance (P4P)'.
