BALTIMORE, Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Audacious Inquiry LLC, an information policy and technology company, announced that they entered into a collaboration with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians to enhance the clinical and operational effectiveness of Audacious Inquiry’s Encounter Notification Service® (ENS®). ENS provides reliable, real-time notifications and clinical documents to primary care providers, payers and other care providers when patients or members experience a hospital-based encounter.
Audacious Inquiry and Johns Hopkins Community Physicians will exchange knowledge on best practices with regard to notifications during transitions of care, as value-based payment models continue to evolve.
“Johns Hopkins’ commitment to excellence in patient care and the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness are all underscored in this collaboration. The opportunity to work together started with the deployment of our ENS solution to support hospitals across Maryland in their communication with primary care providers and care managers to promote care coordination and reduce readmissions,” stated Chris Brandt, Managing Partner of Audacious Inquiry. “We look forward to the next chapter in our collaboration and enabling the broader health care community to benefit from the actionable data that ENS provides.”
The collaboration with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians offers an opportunity to build on industry-leading technology and care coordination solutions. The collaboration will bring more visibility to the value of proper notifications in clinical workflows, thus positively impacting readmission rates, patient satisfaction, and ultimately care coordination and quality outcomes.
