This week we wrap up our series (read the other posts here!) unpacking a quote from an article in Patient Safety & Quality Healthcare where David Snow the chairman and CEO of Cedar Gate Technologies summarizes the technology and information gaps for value-based care providers saying, “Value-based care is an area full of innovation. The organizations that can create a high-value stack of analytics, with a meaningful high-touch consumer experience and end-to-end technology experience that drives great outcomes at a reasonable cost, will be the game-changers.”
Last week, we introduced an article from Patient Safety & Quality Healthcare that explains why the adoption of value-based healthcare has been accelerated by the pandemic, and why existing technology solutions aren’t meeting the needs of value-based providers. In the article, David Snow the chairman and CEO of Cedar Gate Technologies summarizes the technology and information gap we’re referring to saying, “Value-based care is an area full of innovation. The organizations that can create a high-value stack of analytics, with a meaningful high-touch consumer experience and end-to-end technology experience that drives great outcomes at a reasonable cost, will be the game-changers.”
The adoption of value-based healthcare is accelerating across the country as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring to light many of the barriers to providing quality patient care in the existing fee-for-service and episodic sick care model. In Patient Safety & Quality Healthcare, the writer Matt Phillion explains why providers are making the shift and what tools they need to be successful in delivering quality, value-based care.
As a global digital health company, we are excited to join StartUp Health on their mission to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in the world. They open doors and increase our voice to health systems, partners, and investors. It is a critical time for us, and with StartUp, we could not be more thrilled about our future. StartUp Health recently introduced us to their community, by featuring C3LX in their newsletter explaining why they chose to invest in our mission.
C3LX Inc partners with athenahealth’s Marketplace Program to help value-based and Direct Primary Care practices remotely monitor patients, increase patient engagement, and achieve superior outcomes.
Recently, we’ve been sharing our vision for a technology platform that transforms the EHR beyond merely a digital documentation tool into a platform that empowers patients and clinicians towards improving health; both at an individual level and across a population. In order to achieve this vision, what are the key attributes and elements of this new comprehensive platform? Below is a summary of how we, at C3LX, are reimagining healthcare technology:
Patients rarely have just one clear, manageable issue. Even more importantly, people are multi-faceted, complex, and cannot be broken down to the presence or absence of a chronic condition or comorbidity. C3LX is building towards a comprehensive solution that allows care teams to work with individual patients to create a master plan that addresses all facets of their health journey; from treating a patient’s asthma, arthritis, depression and weight loss, while simultaneously understanding the intrinsic motivations and potential barriers affecting the necessary underlying behavioral changes.
It’s time for your EHR to be more than a documentation and decision support tool, and finally become the essential platform in driving effective and efficient care and interaction with your patients, regardless of the setting.
A big frustration we hear from our primary care clients is the lack of actionable data they have to work with. Even if care teams are getting reports from a value-based payer or 3rd party data aggregator, the information is often just a look-back at past performance with no insights on what care plans were successful, which patients they should be targeting and who those rising risk patients are. Understanding these pain points, we designed our care management platform to quickly identify rising risk or “prioritized” patients much further upstream in their care journey, ideally before those patients fall into the high-cost, high-utilizing category. Care teams gain insights into which patient sub-populations are achieving their care goals, what is driving that success and what barriers are getting in the way.

Care managers who support patient populations and other providers are critical for successful value-based models. Typically care managers are either a part of a diverse care team within an individual practice or they function as a centralized unit providing wrap-around support for patient populations spanning multiple practices. Unlike the workflow of the physicians within a practice that tend to focus on the patient in front of them or the schedule for the day, care managers can take a more proactive view looking ahead at patients that require more active attention and dynamic engagement.
