SullivanCotter, the nation’s leading independent consulting firm in the assessment and development of total rewards programs, workforce solutions, and technology and data products for the health care industry and not-for-profit sector, launches expanded patient panel management functionality in the latest update of its comprehensive Provider Performance Management Technology™ (PPMT). PPMT™ is an industry-first, cloud-based product that enables provider engagement through transparent performance-based compensation administration, reporting and analytical capabilities.
As the focus on optimizing team-based care to achieve better patient outcomes intensifies, health care organizations require more effective strategies and resources for facilitating patient panel management. PPMT™ enables organizations to automate the assignment of patients to clinician panels through sophisticated client-defined rules. It then calculates a risk-adjusted panel size and applies compensation calculations for a group or individual based on an organization’s requirements – providing the flexibility to change patient attribution and/or panel compensation assignments as clinical teams evolve. PPMT™ allows for greater transparency into panel composition and serves as a single, centralized source of truth for clinician compensation.
“Properly attributing patients to the correct clinician’s panel can require hours of administrative time each month. Combined with detailed analytics and powerful auditing and adjustment tools, the new panel management functionality streamlines this process to ensure more accurate attribution and support effective panel management programs,” said Shelly Slowiak, Director, Product Support, Provider Performance Management Technology™, SullivanCotter.
Designed to address a spectrum of physician, leadership and other key stakeholder needs, PPMT™ combines years of health care compensation insight and expertise with an intuitive, automated technology platform to help drive clinician performance and support the transition from volume- to value-based care. It incorporates SullivanCotter’s industry-leading benchmarking data into three integrated modules, including Provider Performance Management, Provider Productivity Insights and Compensation Management Analytics.
“We’re working hard to understand our clients’ changing needs and priorities and, as a result, will continue to refine our product roadmap and deliver the functionality they require to help navigate such a dynamic marketplace. This innovative new functionality will serve to strengthen our existing panel management capabilities, and is a welcome addition to PPMT™ as we strive to develop one of the industry’s most comprehensive, end-to-end technology products for managing clinical compensation and performance,” said David Schwietz, Chief Information Officer, SullivanCotter.
