Care Management Tools

A Doctor and several healthcare-related imagesCare Management Alerts and Dashboards provide near real-time data, giving you up-to-date information on your patients’ care within Rhode Island’s hospital systems. This knowledge, of which you might not be aware without Care Management tools, can greatly help you to enhance care coordination. Additionally, if you are working toward quality improvement initiatives, you will have access to valuable data to help you analyze Emergency Room and Inpatient data over time, based on specific patient panels for your practice.

Information is provided based on a panel (or panels) of patients provided by your organization. Care Management Alerts and Dashboard information can then be available for your High Risk patients, additional subsets of patients with specific co-morbidities, or for your full patient population (full panel) depending on the needs of your organization.

Care Management Alerts

Each time a patient from your organization’s panel list gets admitted to or discharged from the hospital, you will receive a Care Management Alert. Care Management Alerts are email notifications sent via Direct secure email.
For more information view the Care Management Informational Flyer.
