The Charlotte, N.C.-based healthcare organization, Premier healthcare alliance has partnered with Houston, Texas-based Encore Health Resources to help health systems define the technology requirements, priorities and resources needed as they move toward clinically integrated, coordinated care delivery.

Through their partnership, Premier and Encore will create a unique healthcare information technology (HIT) implementation road map customizable to any health system's strategic organizational challenges. Each provider will experience comprehensive assessments and strategic analyses to improve their HIT, clinical quality measures, data interoperability and clinician engagement. As a result, they will have a personalized HIT guideline to support an integrated care delivery program.

The partnership will build on the newly enhanced Coordinated Care HIT Road Map designed by members of Premier's PACT (Partnership for Care Transformation) Population Health Data Management work group. Nearly 80 health systems representing approximately 450 hospitals, 20,000 physicians, and millions of covered lives work together in PACT to improve care coordination, efficiency, quality and patient satisfaction.

Premier, which is an alliance of more than 2,500 hospitals and 77,000-plus other healthcare sites, leads two nationwide collaborative movements that help hospitals transition to coordinated care models that deliver increased value and improve the health status of communities. Encore Health Resources is a recognized leader in advanced information technology services for the global healthcare industry.
