Gives providers evidence-based practice guidelines to deliver better care
TAMPA – (Feb. 24, 2016) – Healthcare providers that rely on Tribridge Health360 for population health management (PHM) can now use chronic disease management and post-discharge clinical guidelines from Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H). The content includes evidence-based Care Plan templates and Delegation Protocols for chronic conditions and a growing library of procedure-specific, post-discharge Care Plans – built into Health360 and ready to be personalized for each individual.
“We're committed to making Tribridge Health360 the most comprehensive solution for population health management and the personalization of care experiences,” said Damon Auer, vice president of Health and Life Sciences at Tribridge. “Dartmouth-Hitchcock is a leader in evidence-based practice and creates clinical guidelines that improve outcomes and speed recovery. By embedding world-class clinical content into Health360, we're giving healthcare providers an enormous head start in developing personalized care plans and expediting their population health impact.”
Dartmouth-Hitchcock's clinical content has been created to speed the inquiry-to-application process and ensure care teams are armed with the best and most current evidence-based practice guidelines. These guidelines enable care team members to operate at the “top of their license,” with the goal of having the biggest impact on the greatest number of people and containing costs while delivering better care.
“Dartmouth-Hitchcock has been on a path toward creating a sustainable health system. Underlying that vision is our strategy to focus on health, not just health care. It's a strategy for changing health care as we know it, one shared by our partners at Tribridge,” said Robert A. Greene, MD, MHCDS, FACP, executive vice president and chief population health management officer for D-H. “Dartmouth-Hitchcock's clinical guidelines enhance the Health360 solution and make the delivery of value-based care that much easier for caregivers to provide the right care for patients. Together, we're making an impact on the delivery of high-quality, personalized, precision care with better outcomes, but we're approaching it at the scale of population health.”
Tribridge Health360 is a consumer-centered solution delivered on the Microsoft Cloud helping healthcare providers coordinate care and personalize care experiences at every consumer interaction. The Dartmouth-Hitchcock clinical content is embedded into the Care Coordination module of Health360, designed to complement existing healthcare technologies like EMR and enable proactive patient engagement and care coordination outside of care facilities. This leads to fewer acute care visits, better overall health for patients and lower healthcare costs. Other Health360 modules include Care Network, Consumer Experience and Consumer Engagement.
