Dallas-based-Phytel today announced that Ministry Health Care, a 16-hospital system based in Wisconsin and Minnesota, has deployed Phytel’s Proactive Patient Outreach system, an automated care coordination and population health management solution, to help fill gaps in preventive and chronic care within Ministry Medical Group while augmenting the organization’s patient-centered medical home initiative. The Ministry Medical Group is comprised of 14 clinics in Wisconsin.

Based on nationally validated, evidence-based protocols and data from the organization’s electronic health record and practice management system, Phytel’s Proactive Patient Outreach system creates an electronic registry of patients that require preventive and chronic care. The technology identifies gaps in care, triggers automated messaging about recommended visits, tests or procedures, and tracks the results, including quality outcomes data for quality reporting. Physician practices can easily customize protocols based on their specific specialty needs.
