ZeOmega® Releases 2017 Updates to Integrated Patient Assessments

Updated Content Now Reflects the Latest NCQA Guidelines for Long-term Support Services, PCMH, and Managed Behavioral Organizations

PLANO, Texas – April 11, 2017 – ZeOmega® Inc. has released the annual update of its integrated patient assessments for the Jiva population health management solution. The release features new rules and assessments for care transitions and post-discharge monitoring, along with updated and consolidated clinical content. It also now reflects clinical and guideline references to National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) guidelines for health plan, case management, and disease management, along with long-term support services (LTSS), quality indicators, patient-centered medical home (PCMH), and managed behavioral health organizations.

The 2017 release enables healthcare organizations to strengthen their care management efforts by ensuring that they reflect the most current and relevant evidence-based best practices for patient-centered care. It includes updated content for over 50 chronic conditions and health-related topics, along with new content and care planning for Alzheimer’s disease and pediatric depression management. The update was developed by ZeOmega’s internal clinical team of registered nurses, physicians, and other clinical professionals. Combined, this group has amassed more than 600 years of related experience.

“Our team takes great pride in the quality, breadth, and effectiveness of the clinical content it develops,” said Christopher Mathews, M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at ZeOmega. “The group has carefully crafted the 2017 update leveraging its vast experience and best practice guidelines from NCQA, the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), the World Healthcare Organization (WHO), and numerous chronic condition associations. These robust protocols and related content will empower our clients to achieve Triple Aim goals by holistically addressing the specific needs of each individual.”

Through Jiva, ZeOmega’s integrated clinical protocols transcend episodic patient care, with content and capabilities that facilitate a whole-person approach across care teams and delivery settings. They incorporate the seven domains of health—intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual, social/cultural, occupational, and environmental—to consider the individual’s biopsychosocial context. Branching logic and care coordination triggers then deliver event-driven workflows to multidisciplinary care teams. This enables them to collaboratively create and implement personalized care plans based on each person’s unique needs and circumstances to improve outcomes, control costs, and increase patient satisfaction
