Orlando, Fla., February 13, 2012 — PatientPoint®, a provider of care coordination and
revenue cycle management solutions, today announced that Medinova Physicians LLC has expanded its existing
partnership with the company to include care coordination technology and National Committee for
Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) consulting services.
The Bronx, NY-based, five location practice specializes in family and internal medicine.
Medinova selected PatientPoint® to assist in its mission of achieving Level 3 PCMH recognition,
which is the highest NCQA designation.
The practice will deploy PatientPoint's HealthSync Care Coordination Platform, which will integrate with
its existing practice management and electronic health records (EHR) systems. The platform automates
care coordination processes and simplifies patient engagement through the following:
- Identifying gaps in care and formulating care plans for patient adherence
by analyzing patient self-reported data, existing patient records and information from health plans;
- Connecting patients with valuable care-related information pre- and post-service
via online or mobile outreach, as well as at the point of care;
- Providing point-of-service clinical decision support and compliance reminders
to providers based on each patient's history; and
- Streamlining clinical review, quality reporting and performance
measurements to more easily meet certification standards.
By leveraging this approach, Medinova will be able to better satisfy PCMH requirements and move from its
current Level 1 PCMH recognition to Level 3. For example, Medinova will be able to identify and address
care gaps for patients with chronic conditions such as hyperlipidemia, hypertension and diabetes through
an automated process. The practice will then monitor and report on this population health information and
related improvements—a key component to NCQA certification.
“Selecting PatientPoint as we embark on this mission was an easy choice,” said Ventkata Ravi, M.D.,
president of Medinova Physicians. “Their in-depth expertise and years of experience in consulting on
quality care initiatives—paired with a keen understanding of physician office workflow and design related
to the PCMH model—were the primary drivers in our decision. With PatientPoint's technology we can directly
satisfy most of the NCQA care coordination requirements through automation, enabling us to focus more
on the care we provide.”
“The partnership with Medinova illustrates our commitment to helping practices meet and maintain Level 3 PCMH compliance,”
said Raj Toleti, CEO of Patient Point. “We embrace the opportunity to work with Medinova as we guide them through
the certification process, and look forward to providing them with the tools needed to fully operationalize the
administrative tasks associated with care coordination and patient engagement.”
Medinova originally began working with PatientPoint in 2011 to launch a patient portal and electronic
point-of-service check-in solution. The primary focus of the deployment was to improve administrative
efficiency associated with pre-registration and registration, which included demographic capture, eligibility
and benefits verification, clinical form intake with e-signature and bill pay for co-payments and collections.
