BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 14, 2020--

CarePort Health, a pioneer in care coordination and post-acute outcomes management, today announced its partnership with Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN), Michigan’s state-designated entity to improve healthcare quality, efficiency and patient safety within the state of Michigan.

Through this partnership, CarePort leverages data flowing through MiHIN to provide higher quality data to participating payer and provider organizations, enabling a more cost-effective approach in managing patient populations.

In 2014, the State of Michigan partnered with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to test Dual Eligible Demonstration, an initiative currently live in 13 states that aims to improve care for Medicare-Medicaid enrollees. The CarePort platform allows Michigan provider and payer organizations participating in MI Health Link, the state’s Dual Eligible Demonstration program, to more easily adhere to program requirements that include conducting patient follow-up 24 to 48 hours post-discharge. Through increased visibility into patient encounters, combined with real-time data and actionable alerts regarding critical patient events provided by MiHIN, Michigan providers can more accurately track and manage their patient populations for simplified transitional care management.

“We’re excited to partner with MiHIN to optimize patient experiences and outcomes statewide,” said Lissy Hu, CarePort CEO and founder. “We look forward to advancing care coordination with MiHIN and Michigan’s leading health systems and health plans as we continue to expand our footprint within the region.”
