St Vincent Health, a 22-hospital system in Indiana, is implementing a pilot project with digital health solutions provider Acupera to improve patient care through real-time population health management.

Acupera is a population health analytics and clinical workflow management platform designed as an engine for team care. The hospital will initially implement Acupera at one of its physician practices within the St Vincent Medical Group. If successful, St Vincent Health will continue to evaluate opportunities to expand the use of Acupera within its hospital system.

St Vincent Medical Group chief medical officer Dr Bruce Bethancourt said that Acupera enables the hospital system’s care teams to collaborate virtually to identify and remedy gaps in patient care and to ensure optimal outcomes.

"Breakthrough technologies like Acupera ensure that we continue to deliver on our commitment to help patients improve their overall health with care that will make a lasting positive difference in their lives," Dr Bethancourt added.

The hospital believes that implementation of Acupera will enable it to provide transitional care management to patients leaving institutional care, as well as identify and manage patients with complex chronic conditions and transition to patient-centric team care.

Acupera CEO Dr Ronald Razmi said: "By embracing intelligent workflow-based population health and care management technologies like Acupera, providers like St Vincent Health are well poised to both reduce costs and positively impact long-term patient care outcomes in their communities."

St Vincent Health, a nonprofit health system sponsored by Ascension Health, delivers high-quality compassionate care in service areas such as cardiovascular, womens, childrens, neurosciences, cancer care, orthopedics, bariatrics, primary care, emergency medicine, imaging, general surgery and long-term acute care.
