Patient Engagement Systems®, a leader and innovator in creating effective care management programs and solutions which support and enhance the management of high-cost patients, including diabetes and chronic kidney disease, today announced the launch of its Care Manager Web Portal.
The web portal is an easy to use tool that provides care managers and others with timely, accurate and actionable information not otherwise available.
Benjamin Littenberg, MD, medical director, Patient Engagements Systems, said, "This new tool allows Care Managers to take advantage of the groundbreaking science behind patient engagement while enhancing their workflow. We have seen substantial improvements in diabetes control, cholesterol, and renal function with simultaneous reductions in ER visits and hospital admissions. The result is better health and lower costs. This is a 'must-have' for ACOs and other value-based reimbursement systems."
Patient Engagement Systems’ robust suite of patient engagement tools, analytics and decision support services enable care managers and providers to improve outcomes and significantly reduce costs.
Added Stanley M. Goldstein, Patient Engagement Systems President and CEO, “The web portal is designed to improve communications with providers and patients and when combined with other Patient Engagement Systems’ tools, results in better outcomes and reductions in claims exceeding $2,400 per patient per year. This is of great value to the growing number of provider groups and ACOs who are now at risk.”
