Care Management Tools

You need to know when your patients are in the hospital or ED. We help.

Care Management Tools notify you when ALL of your patients go to hospitals, Emergency Departments (EDs), and skilled nursing facilities in Rhode Island, whether they are enrolled in CurrentCare or not. This allows you to:

  • Proactively contact patients to coordinate care
  • Save time searching for information
  • Reduce readmissions and ED visits

Your organization provides the list of patients (within one or more panels: full, high risk, specific co-morbidities, etc.) and RIQI provides you with real-time notifications when they are admitted and discharged. We also provide reports with COVID-19 test result history and risk factors for your panel.

Care Management Dashboard

The Care Management Dashboard equips your staff with the tools to quickly and dynamically view real-time encounter information for your patients who are currently admitted or recently discharged, as well as a historic monthly view that is helpful for quality improvement initiatives. You will access:

  • Encounter details such as room number, reason for visit, discharge location
  • COVID-19 test results, risk factors and a flag for a possible COVID-19 encounter
  • Risk scores to help you assess which patients have higher numbers of recent encounters, or higher risk of various outcomes
  • For Medicaid Accountable Entities, a Population Medicine Dashboard that automatically includes your Medicaid AE patients

Care Management Alerts

Through secure Direct messaging, you will be notified in real-time when your patients are admitted, transferred and discharged from acute care hospitals, participating skilled nursing facilities and EMS/Ambulance encounters. Alerts are “push notifications” that include:

  • Encounter details such as room number, reason for visit, discharge location
  • Diagnoses and providers, where applicable
  • Continuity of Care attachments for Lifespan Discharges

ADT Interfacing

For organizations that need live messaging when patients are actively engaging in their healthcare, ADT interfaces provide standard messaging based upon a member panel you provide. ADT messages:

  • Provide you with standard HL7v2 messages that inform you in real-time as each individual patient is receiving care from admission to discharge
  • Empower your care team with high level information to help you make quick decisions to drive your patients’ care
  • Automatically import encounter data into existing systems  to support more efficient care management activities

“Quick Learn” Training Modules:

RIQI is in the process of completing a full system upgrade, which will allow us to provide the Rhode Island healthcare community with improved features. As a result, our systems will be down for a period of time tentatively in mid-to-late September. We will be communicating with you regularly with timeline updates. Each system will have a different plan and timeline; as certain systems come back online, the data will take time to catch up. If you’d like to have a meeting to discuss the potential impact on your organization, please reach out to upgrade@riqi.org.
