New Features Support Participation in Value-Based Care Programs and Improve Patient Care Delivery for Providers in Independent Practice
New York, New York, June 17, 2021
CareSpan, a leading digital healthcare platform and technology-enabled healthcare services provider, has released a new version of the CareSpan Clinic, bringing exciting new upgrades and advanced capabilities to its networks of healthcare providers and their patients.
The CareSpan Clinic is a HIPAA-compliant and ONC-certified solution designed to meet the rapidly evolving needs of independent practices by combining practice management, care delivery, telehealth, electronic medical records (EMR), and remote patient monitoring (RPM) capabilities into one integrated technology platform.
Representing the first major set of upgrades to CareSpan’s comprehensive Clinic in the Cloud TM care delivery platform, CareSpan Clinic 2.0 is the result of two years of development and collaboration with healthcare providers who are active members of the American Advanced Practice Network (American-APN) and the American MedPsych Network, both CareSpan provider networks.
Melissa Magstadt, President of American-APN, states, “American-APN members have eagerly anticipated the arrival of CareSpan 2.0. The recent upgrades to the CareSpan Clinic further streamline care delivery for providers, while new features empower our Nurse Practitioners to deliver care that is customized to their patients’ needs.”
CareSpan Clinic 2.0 better accommodates participation in value-based care programs like MACRA/MIPS, supports Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) reporting to improve reimbursement for providers, enables Advanced Directives and Planning for patient end-of-life decision-making, and includes new features for Chronic Care Management that encourage holistic care planning. A multitude of documentation templates were also included in this upgrade to better serve the unique needs of each provider and their patient mix, particularly those who work in behavioral health.
Debra Barnett, President of American MedPsych, states, “Behavioral health practitioners – from psychiatrists to psychotherapists – embrace CareSpan 2.0 as it allows them to save time on documentation and ensures a high degree of control over private psychotherapy notes. This system upgrade upholds American MedPsych’s promise to prioritize the needs of behavioral health specialists through our unique tech-enabled service offering.”
Rembert De Villa, CEO of CareSpan, shares, “While CareSpan 2.0 represents a big step forward, we continue to improve our technology and service offering to enable seamless collaboration between mental health and primary care for the benefit of all providers and patients who are served by our networks, American-APN and American MedPsych. Our technology roadmap includes more advancements to our best-in-class integrated care delivery platform in the months to come. We also release additional services that improve patient care and safety while contributing meaningfully to the growth and success of our member practices.”
