Casenet®, LLC, a leading provider of extensible care management solutions, today announced a partnership with HealthLX™ to deliver TruCare Linx™, a new integration engine solution for the healthcare market. TruCare Linx powered by HealthLX provides a proven suite of pre-built components to support the integration of TruCare to existing clinical systems including health information exchanges (HIEs) and electronic medical records systems (EMRs).
The TruCare Linx integration engine is capable of using a wide range of data message schemas to support HL7, X.12, XML and custom data mappings. The TruCare Linx Standard ADT Message Suite provides a flexible means to accept the HL7 hospital admissions, discharges and transfers (ADT) messages commonly used for care management integration. This approach enables TruCare to be deployed without being dependent on customized backend integration and enables real-time or near real-time notifications of clinical events. TruCare Linx, which is designed specifically for TruCare, can be delivered as an on-premise or hosted-software integration engine to meet the unique needs of Casenet clients.
“We are excited to be partnering with Casenet,” states Will Tesch, CEO of HealthLX and TESCHGlobal. “It is critical for all of us to fully use and leverage the relevant health information available to improve care quality. The power of TruCare combined with the TruCare Linx integration engine delivers unprecedented integrated care management capabilities to the care management market. This collaboration will enable care managers to improve care coordination and quality by giving them access to the right information at the point of decision.”
Effective care management is facilitated by access to timely clinical information. Understanding and managing changes in member status (such as a pending discharge from a hospital to a skilled nursing facility) allows for more effective care coordination as well as cost management. Additionally, increases in the speed and accuracy in which changes in member status (such as a move to inpatient) can be conveyed to a health plan will enable more effective management of that member resulting in better clinical outcomes and ultimately lower costs.
TruCare Linx further expands Casenet’s ability to improve care coordination between providers, care managers, coaches, pharmacists, families and members. With a single platform for utilization, case and disease management, Casenet delivers unmatched flexibility to implement, coordinate and manage clinical, wellness and quality programs. Using TruCare Linx and its current native web services, TruCare can now be more easily integrated with other systems including EMRs, HIEs, predictive modeling and analytic tools, mobile monitoring devices and collaborative care partner systems enabling a holistic view of all members. As a result, TruCare offers an unparalleled intersection of member data, clinical content, business rules and workflow which makes it unique and which raises the bar for care for all members.
“We are pleased to be partnering with HealthLX,” said Peter Masanotti, Casenet CEO. “By enabling real-time or near-real time access to data from other clinical and administrative systems via TruCare Linx, TruCare will provide care teams with a complete view of its members, enabling truly integrated care management. The result is improved care coordination, member engagement and outcomes as well as reduced time to intervention and cost.”
