Qure4u Launches Shared Care Plans and Chronic Care Management Platform

Qure4u, Inc., a leader in digital healthcare innovation, announces the expansion of their patient-centric, health management platform to include Shared Care Plans and Chronic Care Management modules.

Mar. 15, 2016 / PRZen / BRADENTON, Fla. -- Qure4u, Inc. announced today their cloud-based, patient-centric, health management platform will now include Shared Care Plans and a comprehensive suite of tools for Chronic Care Management.

"The expansion of our platform, which is currently used by more than 1.8 million patients and thousands of providers, will greatly enhance the ability of clinicians and patients to work together in improving quality outcomes," said Dr. Monica Bolbjerg, co-founder and CEO of Qure4u.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, eighty-six percent (86%) of all healthcare spending in the U.S. is for people with one or more chronic medical conditions. About half of all adults in the U.S. (117 million people) have one or more chronic conditions.

As part of the Affordable Care Act, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has introduced incentives for physicians and healthcare delivery systems to improve the coordination of care for persons with chronic conditions. Private payers are also introducing similar incentives.

"We've been engaged in the marketplace now for fifteen years," added Dr. Bolbjerg. "The capabilities of our platform are the direct result of physician- and patient-driven development, adoption and use. More than 65% of patients that have access to our platform actively use it."

The Qure4u platform reaches across currently disparate Electronic Medical Records, collecting and organizing patient health data into a single, highly interactive, self-management platform. Patient data automatically populates easy-to-understand health graphs, providing visibility and awareness of how their day-to-day behaviors and compliance-to-care affects their health.

The new modules enable providers to readily create and communicate Shared Care and Chronic Care Plans with their patients and fellow clinicians. Goals are established and home-based tasks are assigned, organized and communicated via the platform. Alerts and reminders can be custom set to prompt patient compliance and alert care coordinators for timely follow-up. Secure messaging, texting, video calls, test results, referrals and appointments can all be conducted within the HIPAA compliant platform.

"The Shared Care Plans provide an organized, interactive management platform that is ideal for ACOs engaged in the Medicare Shared Savings Program or for hospitals to use at discharge."

The technology also features real-time analytics in support of population health management. This enables time-sensitive responsiveness that claims data analysis cannot deliver on its own. Providers and care coordinators can create custom communications and reminders to risk-stratified population segments, ensuring critical quality measures are met.

"Primary care physicians considering participating in CMS' Chronic Care Management incentive program will find our platform delivers the infrastructure, secure communications, and population health management capabilities to cost-effectively support successful implementation," said Dr. Bolbjerg. "We really see this as a true, Patient Relationship Platform."
