Medicom enables coordination of care with commercial healthcare providers – a growing need due to Missions Act
Since its enactment in 2018, the Mission Act has increased veterans’ access to health care in the community. Although the Mission Act was hailed as a significant step forward in giving veterans access to health services in the private sector, it also created many clinical and administrative challenges. Medical images and diagnostic results are often couriered to and from the VA on CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs, resulting in significant delays in diagnoses and continuity of care, as well as costs to the VA estimated at $163-181 million per year, nationally.
Medicom’s federated platform solves these interoperability issues with its secure, proprietary network that enables indexing, searching, and retrieving information in a decentralized manner. Via Medicom’s platform, healthcare providers such as the VA can electronically retrieve images and reports requested by community providers through temporary encrypted conduits and seamlessly integrate the data into their computer records systems. existing healthcare devices, such as an EMR or PACS.
The Medicom platform brings a patient’s complete medical history in a research-driven user interface and simplifies the process of finding and retrieving health information for patients, providers and third parties by creating an efficient user experience. and simple.
Sanford Health, one of the nation’s largest health care systems, recently published how Medicom’s Health Information Network has enabled better care for veterans in its community.
‘”Providers who want to view the information or view the imagery. It’s at your fingertips. It’s there,” Paul Burudgeneral manager of Sanford Heart Fargosaid’.
