South Carolina Medical Association teams with analytics firm to build interoperable health network

 

The South Carolina Medical Association (SCMA) has partnered with data analytics firm KaMMCO Health Solutions (KHS) to leverage interoperability of patient record-keeping and data analytics to support its new performance-based delivery and payment models.

SCMA will work with KHS to build a statewide health information network for its 6,000 doctors, enabling them to share real-time patient information while accessing analytic reports, the groups announced.

The data reporting is designed to improve clinical outcomes, reduce inefficiencies, and lead to increased patient safety, they said. A launch of the network is scheduled for fall 2016.

“Partnering with KHS allows us to support the physicians of South Carolina with benefits when it comes to data analytics relevant to both patient care and the successful transition to alternative payment models,” SCMA President Alexander Ramsay, MD, said in a statement.

The SCMA supports South Carolina physicians and advocates for quality medical care and good public health while representing and serving physicians.
