Powell, Ohio – Feb . 02, 2010– Click4Care, a leading provider of care management software for payors, today announced that it has forged a partnership with iWay Software, a provider of service oriented architecture-based (SOA) enterprise integration tools, to help Click4Care clients quickly and cost-effectively integrate disparate information technology (IT) systems with its award-winning care management platform. iWay’s streamlined, scaleable and robust integration model enables healthcare payors to rapidly interface Click4Care’s software with their claims processing system, member and provider databases, decision support, document management and other best-of-breed IT applications.
“With a rapidly aging population and nearly half of all adult Americans living with a chronic condition, the payor community will face even greater pressure to promote and provide higher quality and cost-effective care management,” said Gerald Cohen, CEO and president of iWay. “To successfully achieve this goal, payors must integrate data and workflows that currently reside in separate IT systems, enabling them to collaborate and share information more efficiently with care managers, members and providers.”
Cohen continues, “By combining iWay’s powerful solutions and SOA integration approach with Click4Care’s innovative care management platform, payors will mitigate technology implementation risks and enhance their ability to keep members healthier, identify at-risk members more quickly and thoroughly, improve physician satisfaction and collaboration, and gain greater control over their financial and operational outcomes.”
“In working with payors of all sizes, we noticed a trend toward adopting sophisticated, member-centric care management approaches that leverage the interoperability and data integration of multiple IT systems,” said Rob Gillette, Click4Care’s CEO. “Click4Care’s strategic relationship with iWay helps our clients more readily design and deploy these technology-driven programs to ultimately enhance the quality of member care, improve member satisfaction, advance care coordination and reduce clinical and administrative costs.”
