The AHI Health Home Care Management Network has put in place a new care coordination software platform, Netsmart.
“Netsmart is a versatile and powerful system that will be a valuable tool for our network,” said Ann Hutchison, Director, Care Management and Health Home, AHI. “Its technology allows us to track services and treatments for individuals across care settings, reduce duplicative services, and simplify care transitions with secure data exchange.”
According to Hutchison, nearly 250 care managers from 23 partner organizations received comprehensive training in preparation of the platform’s recent launch. Meanwhile, more than 3,000 patient records were seamlessly migrated into the new system.
“Netsmart will also help us focus on the complete person and social determinants of care,” continued Hutchison. Another benefit of the platform, according to Hutchison, is its connectivity to Hixny, the region’s Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO). “Health record and data sharing between the two will greatly enhance our efficiencies and effectiveness,” said Hutchison.
“We’re extremely grateful to our partners for the hard work they put in and the patience they exhibited throughout the entire transition process,” stated Hutchison. “We’re certainly off on the right footing and look forward to working together to make this endeavor a success.”
