Nationwide there’s a transformation of the health care industry underway. Physicians are adopting new performance-based delivery and payment models that demand more patient information as well as require powerful analytics to improve clinical outcomes, reduce inefficiencies and positively impact patient safety. The Louisiana State Medical Society (LSMS) recognizes the changes affecting its statewide membership and is pleased to announce a new partnership with KaMMCO Health Solutions (KHS).
While numerous health information exchange (HIE) efforts across the country have launched and failed over the last decade, KHS presents an option that clearly resonates among physician and healthcare leaders. The unique factor in the KHS-HIE development and operational model is the physician-led approach to data governance. KHS partners with healthcare providers and organizations to build the necessary infrastructure, effectively employ data analytics for improved patient outcomes and quality reporting, support enhanced patient engagement, and provide innovative risk management products.
“Partnering with KHS to access new health information exchange (HIE) and analytics tools allows us to support the physicians of Louisiana with cutting-edge benefits relevant to both patient care and the successful transition to alternative payment models. This is a winning combination for our members,” said LSMS Executive Vice President and CEO, Jeff Williams.
“KHS offers a unique perspective, as they too are physician-led. We are pleased to work with an organization that has experience in developing and successfully maintaining a health information exchange which also serves as the foundation for creation and delivery of meaningful data analytic reports,” added Williams.
KHS President and Chief Executive Officer, Kurt Scott said, “Our new partnership with LSMS represents a statewide membership of engaged and forward-thinking physicians. We look forward to working with LSMS to deliver integral solutions to the Louisiana health care community.”
