MedeAnalytics, a leading provider of healthcare performance management solutions, announced today that the State of Mississippi Medicaid has selected MedeAnalytics' Accountable Care Solution to empower the next generation of the state's Medicaid Electronic Health Records System (MEHRS) application. The state's primary goal is to integrate claims and clinical data from various health information exchanges and serve as the clinical data warehouse of record.
Physicians in the state of Mississippi will utilize the Meaningful Use-certified system to provide better coordinated care for aged, blind and disabled (ABD), dual-eligible, special needs, and other Medicaid beneficiaries. Realizing the goals of a statewide, integrated system, Medicaid patients' profiles are prepopulated with medical, pharmacy and claims histories, enabling better-informed decisions at the point of care. Physicians also have access to fully informed ePrescribing capabilities that integrate prescription drug claims and formularies as well as provide adverse drug reaction alerts.
"We are very pleased to partner with the State of Mississippi Medicaid," said MedeAnalytics Chairman Mike Gallagher . "The state of Mississippi has many points of access for patients, which makes the data landscape complex. We are excited to assist the state in improving quality and mitigating cost escalation."
