eClinicalWorks HEDIS Dashboard Helps Children First Pediatrics Achieve 90% Compliance Rate and Improve Quality with Value-Based Care Model
Population health dashboard improved process automation, compliance and cost savings for medical home serving 9,700 patients
WESTBOROUGH, MA.—January 10, 2023— eClinicalWorks®, the largest ambulatory cloud EHR, today announced that Children First Pediatrics—a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) based in Silver Spring and Rockville, Maryland—reported successful process automation, increased patient compliance and general cost savings using eClinicalWorks HEDIS®.
HEDIS, the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, is an essential tool for measuring and analyzing the effectiveness of population health planning efforts. The value-based care (VBC) model is key in providing proactive, holistic, and data-driven care that prioritizes value of care and healthier patient populations. The eClinicalWorks HEDIS dashboard helps providers track compliance across their patient population by integrating point-of-care alerts and patient reminders. Additionally, providers can use HEDIS Analytics to evaluate gaps in care, engage non-compliant patients and set thresholds to measure group performance, helping practices achieve their population health goals. By using the eClinicalWorks HEDIS dashboard, Children First Pediatrics’ compliance rate has increased to 90%.
“In 2016, when we applied for our PCMH accreditation, we needed to streamline our operations so we could better evaluate and address our patients’ needs,” said Rachel Bakersmith, Practice Administrator Children First Pediatrics. “With HEDIS we were able to compile all relevant patient data in an easy-to-use dashboard and see which of our patients were missing well visits, due for shots or needed additional screening. This process automation helped us achieve our PCMH accreditation and continues to help our staff exceed care standards.”
“Visibility into population health data is essential for patient-centric care,” said Girish Navani, CEO and cofounder of eClinicalWorks. “However, with continued staffing shortages stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, many practices don’t have the resources to run reports manually. Children First Pediatrics’ success with HEDIS emphasizes that process automation and moving from a fee-for-service to value-based models can result in positive patient and practice outcomes.”
