Casamba LLC Partners with Kno2 to Drive Interoperability Across Post-Acute, Ambulatory and Acute Care Settings
Sep 7 17
Kno2 and Casamba, LLC announced a partnership agreement. Kno2's interoperability platform will be integrated into Casamba's Smart EMR, TherapySource™ and HealthWyse® products to drive easy, secure exchange of electronic patient documentation between Casamba's post-acute care clients and other healthcare providers throughout the continuum. Kno2's interoperability platform provides ever-expanding connectivity through streamlined workflows to major health information networks and platforms, facilitating more effective communication and consumption of shared patient information. In addition, its cloud fax capabilities offer easy entry into secure patient document exchange by transitioning workflows from the fax machine to online, eliminating the time-consuming and costly need to scan and save paper faxes. Connection to interoperable networks, such as Direct messaging, will also supply seamless sharing of electronic patient data with hospitals and health systems, helping both sides improve patient care while allowing Casamba clients to increase referrals by making them more attractive partners. Improving care coordination between post-acute, ambulatory and acute care providers is a key requirement for achieving a successful transition to value-based care. Since all providers share some element of risk based on patient outcomes, simplifying the exchange of patient care records is crucial to meeting the clinical and financial goals of all involved. Hospitals and health systems are increasingly recognizing this need, and giving preference in referrals to post-acute providers that can facilitate seamless patient data exchange for better care transitions. With its simple APIs, Kno2 enables these capabilities to be incorporated quickly into virtually any EMR technology for ready access to critical information at the point of care. The result is improved quality of care with less labor and lower costs, all while creating a competitive advantage for providers who use it. Integration of the Kno2 platform will commence in fourth quarter of 2018, beginning with TherapySource, Casamba's EMR for outpatient therapy providers. It will then be incorporated into the company's HealthWyse solution for home care providers and, lastly, into Casamba's flagship Smart EMR for inpatient therapy, which supports skilled nursing facilities. All Casamba clients will receive the upgrade as part of future releases of the individual products. At that time, their electronic identities will be assigned and published in Kno2's national directory for electronic connectivity, making them visible to other providers who need to share protected health information.
