ZeOmega Earns Milliman Care Guidelines CareWebQI® Integration Certification

SEATTLE, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- ZeOmega's Jiva care management software has been fully integrated with Milliman Care Guidelines' CareWebQI® interactive software.  

To attain the Milliman Care Guidelines Integration Certification, ZeOmega -- a leading provider of web-enabled, rules-based workflow software for integrated care management -- had to demonstrate seamless Jiva workflow and enhanced usability with Milliman Care Guidelines® clinical guidelines and other content, delivered through CareWebQI

ZeOmega's Jiva is designed to transform traditional episodic-based case management into proactive and collaborative care management.  Integration with CareWebQI gives care managers and providers access to the Care Guidelines clinical content which supports their efforts to deliver optimal healthcare.  

"Integration of Jiva with CareWebQI brings added value to our clients seeking evidence-based, quality outcomes," notes Sam Rangaswamy, ZeOmega's Chief Executive Officer.   "Care managers and physicians can now interact with the CareWebQI software through Jiva in real time, and access the Care Guidelines, which are tools to assist in the assessment of appropriateness of care.  In addition, Jiva's analytics-driven automated workflow capabilities already incorporate clinical rules, protocols and assessments.  This allows our clients to leverage this integration and Jiva's capabilities to consistently and efficiently direct evidence-based care."

The Care Guidelines are available in many software solutions with feature-rich interfaces.  These interfaces enable third-party vendors to integrate Care Guidelines clinical content, primarily through the CareWebQI software, into their own applications.  The Milliman Care Guidelines Strategic Alliances team employs a structured integration certification program that certifies and supports content integrations, ensuring product quality and client satisfaction.

Integrations such as this leverage the evidence-based Care Guidelines clinical content and help healthcare organizations to improve the quality of clinical outcomes.  

"Our Integration Certification program helps our Strategic Alliance Partners to tightly integrate the Care Guidelines content and interactive software with their own applications, such as Jiva," said Lynn Nemiccolo, Milliman Care Guidelines Vice President of Product Management.  "These certified integrations assure shared clients that our evidence-based clinical content is tightly integrated with selected medical management programs to support world-class healthcare delivery."
