The Villages Health Partners with KAID Health to Optimize Clinical Efficiency and Care Quality
KAID Health, an AI-powered health care data analysis and provider engagement platform to optimize care quality and reimbursement, today announced its long-standing partnership with The Villages Health (TVH). TVH is a healthcare system specifically designed for active senior lifestyles that define The Villages® Community in central Florida. Through KAID Health's natural language processing-centric Whole Chart Analysis platform, TVH providers can identify high-value and tactical care and coding interventions for its Medicare Advantage patients. To date, KAID Health has enhanced Medicare Advantage reimbursement for TVH by driving more accurate documentation and HCC code capture. More importantly, the solution helps ensure each patient is getting the appropriate care, and all their health needs are being addressed.
"KAID Health's Whole Chart Analysis platform has enabled The Villages Health providers to better engage with Medicare Advantage patients to improve overall care," said Jeffrey Lowenkron, M.D., MPP, chief medical officer, The Villages Health. "The platform's actionable insights help us identify what care and coding gaps need to be addressed, while streamlining quality metric reporting. The solution not only keeps our patient population healthy, but also enhances Medicare Advantage reimbursement."
Tactically, KAID Health quickly and easily gives TVH's primary care, specialty, and hospital-based physicians the patient-level information they need. It does so without adding work to the front-lineclinical staff. Using the structured and unstructured electronic medical record (EMR) data, KAID Health ensures each patient's health record is accurate and complete, care gaps are addressed, and quality standards are enforced.
With over 130,000 residents, The Villages® Community, Florida, is by far the largest 55-and-older community in the U.S. TVH was founded to provide world-class care to the senior community. While the system does that today, its goal is even higher-to make The Villages® and surrounding community, America's Healthiest Hometown®. To accomplish this, TVH combines informed, coordinated, evidence-based care, with well-known customer service.
"KAID Health is proud to partner with The Villages Health to proactively improve the health of their patients while saving clinicians time, reducing waste, and securing Medicare Advantage reimbursement," explained Kevin Agatstein, CEO of KAID Health. "Our Whole Chart Analysis platform makes clinicians more efficient by extracting all relevant data from EMRs. The insights can then be pushed to the provider to ensure the identified care and documentation suggestions are acted on. This helps the healthcare system achieve their clinical, financial, or operational objectives."
