Lumeris to Present at Institute of Medicine, Health and Human Services Conference

Invited to Demonstrate How Its Software Improves the Quality, Lowers the Cost of Health Care

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lumeris, an expert in using software and services to enable more accountable health care, today announced its invitation to present at the upcoming Health Data Initiative Forum on the campus of the National Institutes of Health. Lumeris, a subsidiary of EGHC, joins a handful of other health care innovators invited to participate in the second annual gathering on June 9.

Co-hosted by the Institute of Medicine and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Health Data Initiative Forum is an event to accelerate momentum for the public use of data and innovation to improve health and support more informed decision-making by patients, health care systems and community officials. The event will include a number of fast-paced demonstrations of a range of tools and applications developed using health data, in addition to a series of discussion sessions and a data and applications exposition.

At the forum, executives from Lumeris will demonstrate how recently released government data are incorporated into the medical management workflows of its popular Maestro software platform, supporting the best possible clinical and financial outcomes for patients.

Maestro allows health plans, hospitals and medical groups to find and act on previously unknown or unappreciated opportunities to improve the quality and lower the cost of health care.

“Maestro’s unique functionality allows its users to see the entire picture of a patient or member’s care, presenting and supporting meaningful opportunities for improved collaboration and overall accountability,” said Richard Jones, president of Lumeris. “At the Health Data Initiative Forum, we will showcase how incorporating government health data into this software lends additional context to the actionable, evidence-based clinical and financial intelligence presented to Maestro users.”

Lumeris executives will also be on hand to show forum attendees the latest and most impressive example of Maestro’s integration with an award-winning electronic medical record (EMR) system. Through a unique partnership with ClearPractice, a leader in the ambulatory physician EMR marketplace and sister company of Lumeris, actionable quality considerations identified by Maestro are passed directly to physicians at the point of care.

“Maestro can integrate with a variety of EMR systems to deliver important intelligence to physicians at the point of thought, but we’re particularly proud of the integration accomplished with ClearPractice,” Jones said. “We know through experience that presenting this information to physicians at the time they see a patient, directly within their office workflow, is an effective way to support higher quality health care.”

Lumeris is scheduled to present at approximately 10:45 am EST, during the morning plenary session. The forum can be viewed live online at http://www.hhs.gov/live starting at 9:00 am EST. The hashtag to follow on Twitter is #healthapps.
