cliexa is now available in the athenaHealth Marketplace

Today, cliexa Inc., a thriving producer of mobile health care management services, revealed a partnership with athenahealth, Inc.® through athenahealth’s “More Disruption Please” (MDP) Marketplace program. As an MDP partner, our cross-communication platform developed for chronic pain patients and providers, cliexa-EASE, is now immediately available to athenahealth’s network of 100,000+ providers and countless prospective clients. EASE enables patients and clinicians to make intelligent correlations between medication dosage, frequency and heightened or reduced symptoms by leveraging an application that functions as a pain assessment model for chronic pain management with seamless scalable EMR integration via API and global HL7 connectivity.

cliexa provides the ideal pain management application to leverage patient-reported outcomes to improve treatment decisions and patient experience, while also maximizing compliance and reimbursement. cliexa-EASE is designed for chronic pain management, podiatry, and general patient wellness. cliexa-EASE allows providers to gather digitized intake data and customize assessments to correlate data that best adheres to their patient population.

In order to provide physicians with high accuracy metrics, cliexa-EASE uses patient reporting methods on visual body maps, and pain expression in voice, face, and body movements. This allows physicians to view the physical attributes of pain beyond self-reported descriptions which can often be difficult to translate into clinical diagnostics terms. Tracking these markers allows physicians to use patient-reported outcomes to treat the “whole patient.”  One of cliexa’s existing clients, Anderson Podiatry Center, is already seeing the benefits of using the cliexa platform with a custom digital patient intake and screening process, also digital consent forms, integrated to their athenahealth electronic medical record (EMR).

The athenahealth Marketplace partnership opens up a hyperconnected, national network of healthcare professionals providing chronic pain management. With this partnership, the two companies align to provide measurable financial and clinical results for providers. cliexa is a real-time data provider for future medicine and will continue to build on our vision to increase patient-provider engagement and compliance through mobile health solutions.

“We are excited to partner both with athenahealth and Anderson Podiatry Center to deploy cliexa platform into the marketplace as this is the first of many subspecialties we currently have in our portfolio. We are looking forward to implementing other subspecialty applications to the athenahealth marketplace which will strengthen our partnership in healthcare space,” says Mehmet Kazgan, Founder and CEO of cliexa.

Eric Seyler, CEO of Anderson Podiatry Center, says, “The transition to a digital patient intake has given us more opportunities to help our patients than we had envisioned. Our patients have spent less time in the waiting room with more time delegated to their doctor’s visit. The integration is done in real-time which supports our goal to be more efficient with clinic resources while helping to provide the best possible patient experience.”

cliexa enables patients to track their chronic disease activity by quantifying symptoms using scientifically-proven and clinically-validated scoring models. cliexa delivers quantified disease activity and documentation through real-time integration to athenahealth electronic medical record, which streamlines processes and increases efficiency in population health management.

Mobile Health Applications - Value Based Care

In today’s healthcare system, there is a focus on creating a value-based care system to foster a standard of effectiveness, and efficiency when it comes to patient health outcomes, and reduced costs. Through this model, healthcare providers are incentivized to deliver high quality care and this value is derived from measuring health outcomes over time. There is significant pressure that many providers face to be able to quantify their patient’s health outcomes in order to show they are in fact delivering “value-based care.” A value-based model creates a need for a fruitful cross-communication system that extends to patients, providers, payers, and all involved in the healthcare system in order to quantify and qualify health measures.

In a effort to utilize patient-reported health status to improve care, cliexa is collaborating with the American College of Cardiology to develop technical modules targeting cardiology-specific diseases using remote patient monitoring. The first module, cliexa-PULSE, has been developed is for Atrial Fibrillation and includes patient-reported symptom tracking, medication reconciliation functions, connections to wearable data and claims data connection. This information will fulfill reporting needs for patients through visual tracking graphics in the application and to physicians in a summarized, customized manner. Moving forward we are looking to commercialize this product through the ACC’s 2,500 members and beyond.

Improved communication and reduced costs can be achieved by improving patient engagement, streamlining clinical workflow, and implementing a customizable technology that will automate clinical processes, analyze and simplify patient data, which can lead to improved care and health outcomes. By the incorporation of patients’ health status and value via patient-reported outcomes (PROs), providers can monitor the quality of health care delivery.

PROs can be used as absolute terms, or as a change from a previous result as well as a measurement in clinical trials. Physicians can better determine baseline status, clinical trial endpoints, monitor therapy effectiveness, assess change in stats and prognosis predictor, while the patient experiences positive impacts on daily activities, emotional wellbeing, psychological health, and social function. In addition, PROs can aid clinics to improve patient outcomes, quality of life and satisfaction by using the PROs to better inform their care. PROs prioritize the important details in a clinical encounter and aid a better understanding of the motivation behind patient behavioral change. With this information, the clinic can analyze the evidence, design clinical trials and change their practice and policy.

PROs prioritize the important details in a clinical encounter and aid a better understanding of the motivation behind patient behavioral change. With this information, the clinic can analyze the evidence, design clinical trials and change their practice and policy.

Patient-centered data collection outside of a traditional clinical is the next frontier of modern healthcare. By digitizing and automating PROs, both patients and physicians benefit financially and through effective time management. PROs tackle the challenge of long surveys, care integration, multimorbid patients, and improving the relationship between patient and provider. Clinicians need instruments (surveys) to capture patient-reported measures of symptom status, functional status and health-related quality of life. PROs help quantify the disease from patients’ perspectives, makes disease- specific measures more sensitive and relevant, help meet all the requirements of performance measures and can improve the process of delivering clinical care while bringing the patients’ voices into care. Physicians have found that PROs, in the right setting with the right workflow, are a helpful mechanism for shared decision making and help tackle the treatment goals of patient survival, free of hospitalization, and increased quality of life.
