The ACO highlighted the real-time Pings they will receive when patients get care, the breadth of the PatientPing community in Michigan, and the ability to work with providers to develop protocols for care.
In a vibrant discussion on payment reform at the Michigan Health Policy Forum, PatientPing was highlighted as a useful tool that enables higher quality care at lower costs in a changing healthcare landscape. Joseph Egan, Administrative Director at Michigan Pioneer ACO, shared his experience using PatientPing on a panel of local experts to a room of more than 200 policy makers, academics, and practitioners.
PatientPing’s value as a provider education tool and partnership enabler was showcased at the 2014 ACO Performance Management, Contracting & Compliance Summit. Jeanne O’Brien, Vice President of Accountable Care Initiatives at River Health ACO in Pennsylvania, discussed how PatientPing has allowed her organization to begin engaging participating community partners, better understand real-time patient movement, and improve communications with PCPs and care coordinators.
