IllumiCare® empowers clinicians with real-time cost and iatrogenic risk data – at the point of care.
Over-utilization is both harmful to patients and wastes limited healthcare resources. IllumiCare provides a non-intrusive Smart Ribbon® of information that is embedded within or floats over the EMR and gives providers real-time, patient-specific costs (not charges), with alternatives and accruing risk data. With it, providers order fewer and less expensive tests and medications.
One Platform – Many Views
The same Smart Ribbon can be displayed for all user types and patient locations, or you can create multiple variants for different user type and/or patient location contexts.
The first step is to determine the context in which each Smart Ribbon variant will display.
Widgets can include information produced by IllumiCare, third parties or the health system.
The second step is to decide which widgets to include in each Smart Ribbon variant.
Changing Smart Ribbons or adding new ones is just a configuration change and does not require a new/re-implementation.
The last step is to publish the Smart Ribbon variant to the target population.
At IllumiCare we see every order for tests and medications. We know the ordering provider for every clinical order. And, we know the wholesale cost of every clinical order. This data allows us to accurately measure spend per provider (risk-adjusted) and track changes before and after go-live.
But, U. Penn demonstrated that just showing a cost during the ordering process is not enough to change behavior. They found, “Price transparency interventions may need to be better targeted, framed, or combined with other approaches to be more successful.” By unobtrusively framing costs, running totals and benchmarking with iatrogenic risks and specific clinical insights, IllumiCare produces real results without adding to provider alert fatigue.
IllumiCare was founded in 2014 by a visionary physician and a team behind him with a combined 106 years of start-up / high growth company experience, almost all of which in healthcare IT. The team has either founded or played key roles in multiple venture-backed companies, which went public or were acquired.
With deep experience in the clinical, financial and technical aspects of hospital operation, the group has the perfect background to create the Smart Ribbon, which combines actionable clinical and financial intelligence within a system that has a very light technical footprint.
– IllumiCare is located in Birmingham, AL.
