The transformation to value-based healthcare from traditional fee-for-service is being driven by dynamic regulatory requirements, which are driving quality-based outcomes across medical and pharmacy care. Where point solutions were acceptable in a provider-centric model, value-based healthcare is all about the Member. By unifying data across the continuum of care, a more complete profile of the Member is created, allowing for better clinical decision-making, quality, and revenue preservation.
MedHOK is the only healthcare management software platform that unifies both medical and pharmacy care throughout the continuum of care and across all lines of business into one system, disintegrating the typical departmental silos of information. As a result, MedHOK delivers an unparalleled 360-degree view of the Member, with real-time access to members’ complete medical and pharmacy care history, eligibility, benefits, demographics, provider info and all activities, interactions, documents, etc. in one repository, accessible from anywhere in the MedHOK platform.
It's all right here. All continuum of care and compliance applications are within one unified platform.
