Genesis Physicians Group Selects McKesson to Support Accountable, Collaborative Care Delivery

McKesson Provider Performance Management Solution Delivers Intelligent Data Integration and Analytics to Enable Improved Outcomes and Lower Healthcare Costs

PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Genesis Physicians Group, the largest independent practice association (IPA) in north Texas, will implement components of the McKesson Integrated Provider Management (IPM) platform (formerly from Portico Systems) to better support its physician groups in improving patient care and outcomes. The solution combines intelligent clinical data integration with comprehensive data analytics to supply a key building block for accountable care: real-time, actionable clinical and financial insights that align care best practices with value-based reimbursement strategies.

“Genesis is committed to providing the highest quality of care that is aligned with evidenced-based best practice,” said Ron Lutz, chief executive officer of Genesis Physicians Group. “McKesson’s solutions will help us optimize the performance of our physician network, make the rationale for pay-for-performance reimbursements more transparent, and highlight opportunities for our physicians to take action to improve the health of their patients.”

The IPM Platform simplifies the design, maintenance, reimbursement and performance management of provider networks while facilitating provider-patient collaboration. Genesis Physicians Group will use the platform to aggregate data from many disparate electronic medical record (EMR) systems into a single comprehensive patient view across the IPA.

The provider performance management solution designed for Genesis has several IPM components that work in tandem to collect, standardize and securely transport clinical data from multiple systems as well as eliminate duplicate data and enable the creation and maintenance of unique provider and patient identity records. A data warehouse with a clinical rules engine stores and applies quality and performance analytics data, while a powerful analytics dashboard presents performance data in multiple dimensions, including provider network, patient population, demographic characteristics and quality measures.

“As the healthcare industry moves closer to collaborative care delivery and associated payment models, the need to more fully understand and manage provider performance is becoming a core competency for leading healthcare organizations. Genesis is among the leading organizations that fundamentally understand that access to real-time quality and performance analytics is critical to appropriately contract with, incent and reimburse providers,” said Ned Moore, vice president of Network Performance Management, McKesson Health Solutions. “By addressing this need, our solutions can help Genesis as well as others achieve better quality outcomes for patients while reducing healthcare costs.”
