Next Generation eConsult
"By facilitating communication and maximizing scheduling access, eConsult plays a significant role in how we create capacity and sustainably provide coordinated care for patients with DR across all of the LADHS sites."
Converge extends beyond the physician-to-physician transaction model of traditional eConsults.
Our next-generation platform efficiently coordinates whole-person care for thousands of providers and millions of patients.
Proven effective, scalable and sustainable for increasing access and whole person care coordination. Studies reveal Converge:
"The implementation of this system suggests that even in a large, underserved urban population, specialty access is not an intractable problem, and that a shift in the model for specialty care can provide rapid electronic input for thousands of patients in need."
Real-time data integration.
Connect provides 24/7, real-time access to critical patient data, in a single source and standardized format:
Integrated referrals and eConsults enable care coordination between hospitals, specialists, community clinics and primary care practices, while automated alerts and notifications ensure medical home physicians receive necessary medical data and proactively contact patients to schedule follow-up appointments.
As a web-based application, Connect harnesses the power of the internet to facilitate data communication in an easily accessible portal. Health Level-7 Admit Discharge Transfer (HL7 ADT) real-time data exchange enables secure 24/7 access to data with no new investment in hardware. Additionally, Connect can be implemented transparently and with minimal costs.
"Based on the outcomes of a successful pilot, we began rolling out the Connect platform to the high-volume hospitals in our network in August of 2015. Engaging twenty-one institutions in just over a year is a true testament to the value of this kind of data in improving outcomes for our hospital providers. We're excited to be able to provide a meaningful solution that overcomes common connectivity barriers between systems."
Proven effective in connecting care across fragmented healthcare systems, Connect improves coordination and continuity of care for real-world results.
Medical Home Network (MHN) is a Chicago-based, not-for-profit collaborative with 21 hospitals, 200+ primary care clinics and facilities, and over 1,400 PCPs and specialists working together to fundamentally changed how care is delivered.
Utilizing Connect to facilitate virtual integration of this vast network, an MHN demonstration project has significantly improved the quality-of-care for 170,000 Medicaid beneficiaries, with remarkable cost savings:
"Having access to real time information and up-to-the-minute details pertaining to the patient's health care utilization is invaluable."
Care collaboration platform.
Medical, behavioral, social & community service provider collaboration platform.
The Care Collaboration Platform from Safety Net Connect delivers a centralized hub for real-time communication and care-coordination between community-based providers. Historically these community-based providers have lacked pathways for data sharing. Now providers can generate a “Community Collaboration Care Plan” and coordinate with other partner agencies in real time — including clinics, homeless shelters, recuperative care services, emergency rooms and other providers.
Now we can engage all of our providers in the community in real time - whether they are part of the same network or system or not. We are essentially creating a uniquely tailored, virtual care network for each patient we serve.
A unique coordination tool, the community collaboration care plan serves as the core, or central hub of our system:
Safety Net Connect solutions seamlessly close gaps in communication and continuity that occur in the hand-offs between providers, payors, and differing technology.Request a Demo
