MatrixCare showcases next-level care coordination to ACOs and LTPAC industry at HIMSS

Ranked Best in KLAS for Long-Term Care Software, MatrixCare is collaborating with Microsoft to bring full-spectrum population health management to America's Seniors

March 5, 2018

BLOOMINGTON, MN – MatrixCare®, the largest long-term post-acute care (LTPAC) technology provider in the United States, is showcasing its care coordination and population health management platform—CareCommunity—at the HIMSS18 Conference for Health IT.

Unlike most care coordination platforms, CareCommunity focuses on coordinating care and managing health and wellness across the long-term post-acute care (LTPAC) spectrum. Connecting hospital system data managed by Epic, Cerner, and others with EHR data from LTPAC providers, therapists, pharmacies, family members and even telehealth devices, CareCommunity provides comprehensive, person-centric care management in one, integrated e-longitudinal record. Built on Microsoft Azure, CareCommunity provides role-specific views that provide care team members with the information necessary to effectively coordinate care across time and setting. As a result, Microsoft will be including CareCommunity as part of its Patient Journey, illustrating how Microsoft is helping to empower care teams, in Microsoft Booth #3823. In addition, Dheeraj Mahajan, MD, FACP, CMD, CIC, CHCQM, of Chicago Internal Medicine Practice and Research (CIMPAR) will be on hand to discuss why he chose CareCommunity to address the increasingly complex needs of an ACO.

“Cross-setting interoperability is the key to success for any entity assuming risk in the delivery of care, including ACOs and other conveners,” said John Damgaard, President & CEO of MatrixCare. “The MatrixCare platform exchanges information with other systems in the LTPAC spectrum of care more than two million times each day. Now with CareCommunity, we can connect acute and post-acute care providers to make true, person-centric care a reality—while also giving organizations a solid foundation to manage the health and wellness of America’s seniors.”

Dr. Simon Kos, Chief Medical Officer at Microsoft Corp. added, “MatrixCare is committed to leveraging technology to improve the lives of America’s seniors and those who care for them. We’re excited to see MatrixCare integrate Microsoft technologies like Azure, Power BI, Skype and Microsoft AI Platform into their solutions to help bend the cost/quality curve. The end result—greater access to better care—is a win for seniors, their families and the economy.”

In addition to its participation in the Microsoft Patient Journey, MatrixCare will also be leading sessions during the pre-conference symposia and as part of the Connected Health Experience. Moreover, MatrixCare is working alongside HIMSS on a study surrounding Health Information Exchanges and nursing homes that will be released at the conference.
