Most population health applications report on patient clinical information or claims data after care is delivered. This results in a retroactive approach to care management in which homecare providers and home health aides don’t have enough information to track patient progress or prevent hospitalizations.
HHAeXchange’s Care Pathways Module was developed in-house by our team of clinicians to give providers the tools they need to collect real-time clinical data and patient observations at the point of care.
Care Pathways selectively prompts caregivers via the HHAeXchange homecare mobile app, with patient-specific questions or observations based upon the identified chronic condition of the patient. Once this data is entered, responses are immediately sent to the provider agency for accelerated intervention management. As a result, agencies can more easily spot trends for a specific patient, such as weight loss or fatigue, allowing them to track the early warning signs of readmission and be more proactive in the care of their patients.
