MedeAnalytics, Inc, a provider of performance management solutions for the healthcare industry has announced that the State of Mississippi Medicaid will be incorporating MedeAnalytics’ Accountable Care Solution into their Medicaid Electronic Health Records System (MEHRS) application. The main objective of this initiative is to integrate clinical and claims information from numerous health information exchanges for the purpose of maintaining a database of clinical records.
The State of Mississippi Medicaid developed The Medicaid Electronic Health Records System and ePrescribing solution (MEHRS/eScript) in order to enhance care quality for Medicaid beneficiaries by linking providers and other stake holders via a secure health information exchange. MEHRS contains basic patient demographics, medical and pharmacy claims data, allergy information, problem list and care opportunities, provider contact information, and immunization records.
Utilizing MEHRS/eScript free of cost, providers can access an ePrescribing system (a solution that allows authorized providers to prescribe cost-effective and safe medicines from their personal systems), web-based EHR, and hospital discharge data, based on the Medicaid claims. Apart from this, radiology and lab test reports will also be made available in future.
