(Media-Newswire.com) - Campbell, CA, August 29, 2012—SCI Solutions, a leading provider of care coordination, referral management and rulesbased scheduling software services, today announced the addition of 82 new client facilities to date in 2012.
New clients selected SCI as their physician outreach and alignment platform to capture orders, reduce network leakage and improve patient care transitions throughout their communities. Complementing clinical and financial software used within the walls of the hospital and among employed physician practices, SCI’s platform integrates with every major inpatient and ambulatory EHR vendor extending the value of these systems so health systems can reach new patients and independent physicians within target markets. SCI has added 137 new client hospitals over the last 18 months while maintaining their 10 year average client attrition rate of less than 2%. “Hospitals have allocated unprecedented portions of their capital and operating budgets to implement EMRs and achieve Meaningful Use,” said Dave Garets of The Advisory Board Company. “Unfortunately, too many hospital leaders behave as if the EMR is their business strategy. The problem with this thinking is new fee‐for‐value reimbursement models such as unnecessary readmission penalties, bundled payments, accountable care, and clinical integration require providers to electronically integrate with a diverse network of community physicians and post‐acute providers that are neither owned nor employed by them and do not utilize the same EMR technologies. Future provider advantage will require a focus on advanced rules and workflow capabilities that can effectively coordinate patient care transitions across a community integrating workflow with potentially dozens of different technology or EMR providers; something the vast majority of EMRs were plainly not architected to do. The cheese has moved.” “SCI’s continued market share expansion reflects the growing need of hospitals to electronically link their operations with community providers. We enable hospitals to capture more physician referrals/orders and reduce unnecessary readmissions by intelligently managing discharges to post‐acute providers,” said Joel French, managing partner and CEO of SCI Solutions. “SCI’s rules‐based Clinical Integration Engine™ offers an end‐to‐end solution for community physicians and post‐acute providers, starting with the order and ending with the result, making it easier for them to do business with hospitals that offer this solution.” About SCI Solutions SCI builds, implements, and operates business process software for a network of 521 hospitals, diagnostic imaging centers, physician and post‐acute organizations. Operating a national referral network now used by approximately 60,000 physicians, SCI’s cloud‐based platform is transforming healthcare with a rules‐based, workflow enabled, community solution that orchestrates patient care across hospital service areas based on condition, episode and population health, regardless of originating or destination systems. SCI clients reduce network leakage, lower unnecessary readmission rates and achieve fewer health plan denials and underpayments through workflow enriched revenue management.
