What is PopCare?
Every day, health providers aim to improve the health of the human population. IHIE can help. Our PopCare products and services provide a complete, coordinated effort to respond to the needs of the market and provide insight into population health, allowing providers to track patients, measure progress and analyze data to meet the demands of an evolving reimbursement structure.
Admission, Discharge, Transfer (ADT) alerts support the patient/primary provider relationship by tracking where the patient’s care is delivered. These notifications allow physicians and care managers to better coordinate a patient’s care and reduce avoidable readmissions and unnecessary utilization of hospital services.
How does it work?
When a patient is admitted to, discharged from, or transferred to a hospital system, an automatic message is sent to IHIE. We translate the message into an alert and send it to the primary care physician or care manager, who then intervenes to improve the care coordination.
We also configure the alert notifications to meet your workflow. Whether you prefer to receive alerts as they occur in near real-time, or as a daily list, we customize the product to fit your needs.
Benefits of our ADT alert services:
Provide organizations with an at-risk population such as health systems, payers, employers with information needed to keep track of patient population and provide timely, relevant interventions
- Serve as example of impactful way to manage healthcare expenses
Provide insight into utilization of healthcare resources
Our clinical value products are customized to assist your organization in care management for specific populations and quality metric efforts. Because we have more than 30 years of longitudinal data in our clinical data repository, we can tailor the reported data to your quality reporting needs. Whether you need to analyze a month of population data or a few years of trends, we can work within your existing workflow.

Enhanced reporting that tracks data (e.g. hospital readmissions, condition progression) over a period of time
Solutions to meet Meaningful Use/Promoting Interoperability requirements
Multiple outputs depending on workflow and reporting needs (e.g. XML, C-CDA, Flat File, HL7)
Benefits of our Clinical Value products:
Leverage clinical data to improve population health
Evaluate data that captures details of an event notification
Filters the outputs to specific HEDIS and STARS code requirements
The concept of Population Health has evolved and broadened quickly over the past few years. It’s no longer viewed as just one thing, e.g. a government health program. Analytics tools + big data are enabling a more sophisticated examination into some of the following population health issues:
Social determinants of health
Increased need for real-time data
IHIE currently offers several products that provide near real-time data and help our customers meet federal reporting requirements. In 2018, we’re committed to working even harder to advance Population Health by providing new quality reporting services and analytics-based products.
Where we’re headed:
We have data, a team of dedicated people, and the capabilities to help you address some of the challenges you currently face, such as:
Enhancing health improvement programs
Recognizing the value of claims and clinical data combined
Providing information intervention
And much more!
Clinical Data Repository
The Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC), managed by Indiana Health Information Exchange, was developed in 1994 by the Regenstrief Institute and is now the nation’s largest inter-organizational data repository containing more than 12 billion clinical data elements over 30+ years. It includes payer and public health data, as well as real-time interfaces from providers such as lab, radiology, CCDs, transcriptions, cardiology, and ADT (Admission Discharge Transfer) alerts. The INPC provides a common framework, agreement, and oversight of the data that feeds into CareWeb—the application that allows our customers to access data from our robust network of participants.
