Hudson Health Plan, a managed care organization based in New York’s Hudson Valley, has chosen Auburn, Calif.-based TCS Healthcare Technologies’ Acuity Advanced Care software system to integrate and manage data files and support Hudson’s Utilization Management, Case Management, Disease Management, and Prevention/Wellness services.

Hudson anticipates the effort will help identify and ensure that members who need extra attention, such as those most at risk for complications from diabetes or pregnancy, are put into the hands of Hudson’s nurse case managers, and at the same time raise the level of care of all its members.

Additional IT tools purchased as part of the ACUITY platform include: AcuStrat, a population stratification and automation tool that turns patient healthcare information into automated actionable events; AcuPort Advanced, a middleware software (Extraction, Transformation, & Loading) solution to link disparate information from multiple applications into one system; and AcuCare Programs for Asthma, Diabetes, Heart Failure, and High Risk Pregnancy.

Hudson Health Plan, which is based in Tarrytown, N.Y., plans to go live with the ACUITY system later this year.
