InteGreat and Ascender Partner for Data Analytics

Feb. 18, 2010

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 17, 2010 — InteGreat, a MED3OOO Company and developer of market-leading, browser-based software applications, and Ascender Software, LLC, a leader in clinical data management and analysis, recently entered into a business partnership to provide InteGreat EHR users with the MED3OOO Quality Management Suite(TM) for Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) calculations and Physician Quality Reporting Initiatives (PQRI) reporting.

The MED3OOO Quality Management Suite will seamlessly be incorporated into the InteGreat EHR. This will allow clinical data from multiple sources (claim, invoice, lab, pharmacy, etc.) to assist providers in accurately determining HCCs and PQRI scores, as well as other meeting Pay-for-Performance (P4P) reporting requirements. The MED3OOO Quality Management Suite will consist of an HCC Module and a PQRI Registry.

“Our partnership with MED3OOO will allow InteGreat EHR clients access to our suite of data analytic protocols to collect, compute, and report clinical measurements for P4P and HCC risk adjustment effortlessly. The integration will display a dashboard which alerts the physician about preventive and chronic care needed, about which diagnoses need to be assessed, as well as a look-back function for possible HCC categories for which the patient may qualify.

As more patients are accurately documented, the HCC or P4P scores increase, and this positively affects quality and reimbursement,” said Ted Kyi, President of Ascender.

“After extensive evaluation, MED3OOO chose Ascender as our quality management partner because of their ability to produce highly accurate scores from multiple sources,” said Tom Skelton, President of MED3OOO’s Technology Services Division. “Our clients are focused on improving patient care. By alerting physicians to proper follow-up of known conditions as well as helping physicians to assess the patient’s entire health status, MED3OOO Quality Management Suite assists physicians in accurately monitoring their patient populations. The result is better outcomes for patients and practices.”
