As part of a patient care management program, Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC, Chicago) has deployed MEDecision's Collaborative Care Management solution suite.

According to HCSC, Collaborative Care Management is intended to allow the company to apply a set of clinical rules and protocols to a compilation of claims data, health care provider records, and self-reported patient information, while also identifying practice intervention and prevention treatment opportunities. In addition, it is designed to enable HCSC to identify opportunities to reduce care redundancies and recognize best outcomes among physicians, says the provider of software, services, and clinical content.

MEDecision's suite is designed to optimize data analysis, automate workflow processes and electronically connect patients and physicians and believes that this patient data can lead to better clinical decisions, increased operational efficiencies and better overall health care, says the Wayne, Pa.-based company.
