Community Health Solution

Our innovation is combining tools for comprehensive care delivery, financial management, population health, patient engagement, analytics, and connectivity into a single solution specifically for CHCs.

Reimagine How Technology Can Improve Community Health

With the mission to deliver high-quality, low-cost care to our most vulnerable, underserved populations, Community Health Centers (CHCs) are leading the transformation to value-based care. CHCs are experiencing rapid growth in patient population but are severely constrained by IT systems that weren't designed to meet the demands of complex clinical decision making, ever-growing documentation requirements, emerging medical trends, and evolving care delivery and payment models. GE Healthcare is increasing its focus on this very important issue.

Collaborating with best practice CHCs, GE Healthcare is designing a flexible new solution specifically for CHCs. Our innovation is combining tools for comprehensive care delivery, financial management, population health, patient engagement, analytics, and connectivity into a single solution.

Population Health That Helps You Efficiently Deliver Care to Those Who Need It Most

Value-Based Care Analytics that help you focus time and resources where they benefit your community the most

How can Value-Based Care Analytics help you enhance care quality, reduce total medical expense, and fund your mission?

As a community health center, you are focused on delivering the highest quality care at the lowest cost to the underserved people of your community. But without sophisticated tools to track your performance, it’s difficult to validate how well you’re closing care gaps, if your staff is excelling, and if you’re getting paid appropriately.

The comprehensive and sophisticated Value-Based Care Analytics component within our CHC solution transforms EMR data and claims-based data into insights you can use to make sure you’re achieving your goals. With areas specific to performance, utilization, patients, risk, and operations, you can easily identify patients who need care, providers who may need help, and business areas in need of intervention. 

Analytics Benefits 
Drive staff performance – Provider performance area provides insight on HEDIS, PCMH, and UDS so you can identify and coach those who need help earning incentives.

Reduce total medical expense – Areas to visualize variability in cost and utilization help you avoid unnecessary medical expenses. 

Prioritize care – Unified patient registry lets you ensure patients who need the most, get the most.

Facilitate patient visits – Pre-visit planner helps the care team see care gaps before the patient appointment so you can optimize the visit. 

Accurately convey patient risk – Open risk indicator visualizes suspected documentation gaps, helping practices ensure claims convey patient risk to payers so you can more effectively fund your mission.

Minimize workflow inefficiency – Optional optimization services leveraging day in the life views of provider and staff activities track EMR usage and signal where workflow adjustments are needed.


Connectivity that Saves Providers Time

Connectivity that Saves Providers Time and Increases the Value of Care Delivered

As pioneers in value-based care, CHCs recognize the importance of improving the value of care delivered.  Virence Health, a leader in standards-based interoperability, has demonstrated that seamless clinical data integration among different providers and healthcare organizations can efficiently increase that value.  The Connectivity component of Community Health Solution helps centers reduce the administrative burden of collaboration, expedite time to treatment, and avoid unnecessary medical expense.

White Paper - Seamless integration of clinical data from hospitals is a key to success in value-based care - and can save providers an hour a day. 

Save time requesting and preparing records - Streamlined data exchange and reconciliation help dramatically reduce staff time to prepare and update patient records for physician review. 

Save time reviewing records - Integrating exchanged data into the routine provider workflow can enable providers to spend up to an hour less per day in chart reviews. 

Reduce delays and total medical expense - Real-time access to needed data helps providers compile a more complete patient context for decision-making before the patient leaves, which can improve patient confidence and satisfaction, reduce delays to treatment, and avoid unnecessary spending on repeated tests.
