Technology Firm Announces EHR For Locally Forming ACOs

Soren Technology will support several locally forming Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) with its EHR system in order to improve patient care and communication. The technology will enable multiple ACOs to share patient information and to provide the transparency required by the Medicare Shared Savings Program.

On March 31, 2011, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), proposed new rules under the Affordable Care Act to help doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers better coordinate care for Medicare patients through ACOs. ACOs create incentives for healthcare providers to work together to treat an individual patient across care settings — including doctorís offices, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. The Medicare Shared Savings Program will reward ACOs that lower growth in healthcare costs while meeting performance standards on quality of care and putting patients first.

Soren Technology provides electronic medical records systems specifically designed to develop, test, deploy and adapt new and existing methodologies to improve collaboration between health care providers and patients.
