In a February 20, 2018 interview with Leanette Henagan, MD, chief integration officer at Partners in Recovery, the online publication HealthcareITNews reported that the organization had replaced by 75 percent the time-consuming use of spreadsheets to track health and had seen a 32 percent increase in educating members on physical care needs—all by using HealthBI’s care coordination and care management platform.
The interview, entitled “Care coordination software merges physical and mental healthcare,” reported that the HealthBI platform provides actionable data—information Partners in Recovery can act on to make a difference to its members. It aggregates data from providers, payers, state health information exchanges and other sources to collectively present a comprehensive real-time picture of whole patient health.
Henagan said it’s important to keep in mind that physical healthcare and behavioral healthcare have long taken two sharply divergent paths. “As such, so did the respective technologies used by the two separate disciplines. But we can’t treat the head and body unless we integrate and connect these disciplines. The HealthBI platform enables exactly that.”
“Technology is essential to behavioral population health management, and integrated physical and mental healthcare.”
