Why should my organization use Wellcentive’s Advance solution suite instead of another product?
Organizations choose Wellcentive for three reasons: favorable economics, rich features and comprehensive reporting.
- When it comes to cost, no company offers a more affordable solution. From small physician practices to regional physician organizations to Fortune 500 companies, Wellcentive is driving ROI by delivering the insights that lead to better care and improved financial performance. Many clients find that Wellcentive’s Advance solution suite pays for itself within the first year.
- When it comes to features, Wellcentive leads the way with a robust standard feature set that enables population health management, clinical integration, and clinical quality improvement throughout the continuum of care. Functional modules for care management and predictive risk modeling allow care teams to focus on the patients most in need of attention. A comprehensive PQRS solution ensures 99% incentive eligibility. And for providers seeking Meaningful Use incentives, Wellcentive is CCHIT-certified for both complete and modular Meaningful Use.
Reporting and analytics are also unmatched by any other solution provider. Wellcentive allows users to export raw data, run complicated standard and user-specific reports and integrate into dynamic charts, graphs and gauges.
How will implementing Wellcentive Advance in my physician office affect workflow?
Expect minimal workflow impact, thanks to interfaces that capture the majority of pertinent data in your community. With support from the physician’s staff, information not acquired electronically is captured when hard copies are received by the office. At the point of care, Wellcentive Advance provides actionable insights and decreases the patient’s visit time.
Why is Wellcentive Advance the best choice as an HIT tool for Clinical Integration for my PHO/IPA?
Flexible integration is the answer. Wellcentive Advance sits over and ties together disparate solutions to create collaborative communities. EMRs are unforgiving in their requirement that all physicians use the same system. Wellcentive Advance drives physician engagement, which is essential for a Clinical Integration program.
How can I use Wellcentive solutions for Pay-for-Performance?
First, it is important to understand that Wellcentive’s Advance healthcare intelligence solution suite supports both Primary Care PFP and Specialty Care PFP. To generate higher PFP returns, practices run regular PFP reports by physician and group – instead of hoping year-end results prove positive. In fact, the robust reporting capabilities of Wellcentive enables you to track performance against pre-determined benchmarks. With outbound interfacing to a variety of payers, Wellcentive eliminates manual review and data entry, resulting in cost and time efficiencies and more responsive payers eager to receive accurate and consistent data.
How can I use WellCentive solutions for reporting to CMS for the PQRS program?
With PQRS believed to be a precursor to mandatory outcomes reporting to CMS, Wellcentive is one of a few providers in the U.S. selected to pilot a system for reporting data directly from registries and EMRs to CMS for the PQRS program. Wellcentive’s PQRS solution checks data prior to submission, ensuring 99% incentive eligibility. Organizations are able to send their physicians’ data directly to CMS, resulting in lower data submission costs and increased physician engagement.

If some of my organization’s physicians use EMR systems, how can Wellcentive help them without requiring them to use a second HIT tool?
There is virtually no overlap between Wellcentive Advance and EMR technologies, because EMRs lack robust population management and analytics capabilities. EMRs were designed to help physicians see and manage one patient at a time. Wellcentive renders complex reporting for long-term databases of 100,000-plus patients instantly. Should a physician’s group be tied to an EMR system, it can still reap significant benefits by uploading data extracts from the EMR using Generic Inbound Interface. This data mining feature enables the physician or group to take full advantage of key features, including alerts, reminders, dashboards and reports.
If my organization wishes to use existing interfaces or build new interfaces to use with our Wellcentive system, what additional costs will we incur?
With each annual provider license, Wellcentive includes custom interfacing development for the purpose of building interfaces with the Wellcentive system and eliminating any interfacing barriers. Wellcentive does not increase your system license fee to accommodate new interfaces, nor does it charge standard maintenance or license fees for interfaces. Should maintenance be required, a minimal hourly cost is applied across other customers using the same interface. Existing Wellcentive interfaces can be reconfigured for new customers for a one-time reconfiguration cost.
