Dallas, April 16, 2019 – Signify Health, the leading provider of technology-enabled healthcare services, has announced today a new evaluative services solution, Signify Office™, that will be used in physicians’ offices and will benefit health plans, health systems, and physicians alike.
Building upon a history of success with the in-home health risk evaluation, Signify Health is partnering with health plans to extend state-of-the-art technology and services into the primary care environment, equipping physicians and their staff to better document a complete and accurate clinical picture of their patients’ health year over year.
Signify Office, a web-based application, enables physicians to effectively and efficiently capture member health risk and quality data in a clinical office setting to optimize health plan prospective evaluation programs. As a comprehensive, protocol-driven tool, Signify Office empowers physicians to document a holistic picture of their patients’ health, from both a quality and diagnostic perspective.
During the pilot program in 2018, a select group of Signify Health clients implemented Signify Office for their physician office prospective program, with results as high as 65% patient panel completion. By utilizing the application, these health plans have combined their in-office program with existing in-home programs onto a single platform that drives consistency in data capture for CMS submission and supports value-based risk contracts for primary care physicians.
“This is an intuitive tool designed by physicians for physicians and their clinical support staff,” said Nathan Goldstein, Chief Product Officer for Signify Health. “The single, integrated platform of Signify Office supports the goals of health plans, health systems, and physician groups and improves accuracy of documentation in the physician office.”
The technology built within Signify Office includes, but is not limited to, clinical decision support functionality and pre-populated demographic, medical claim and pharmacy data to guide physicians and support staff with documentation integrity and completeness. Each evaluation is configured based on the member demographics and health history to display all items that needs to be completed in a visit, including HEDIS and quality measures, which assist in the coordination of the best care possible for the individual. In addition, Signify Office provides real-time data syncing to accelerate the clinical documentation improvement and coding process, assuring accurate coding and data submission.
