St. Luke’s University Health Network has moved to Caradigm Care Management software to support its participation in the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) program. Caradigm who provides Caradigm Care Management is one of the industry leader in enterprise population health field.

SLUHN has signed up for 44 of 48 available episode bundles and is one of the largest BPCI participant in the country. In order to provide better an value based care delivery to residents across the Lehigh Valley SLUHN needed care coordination system that would span both inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as combine its claims data with clinical data from its Epic EHR system. Caradigm Care Management was successful in enabling multi-disciplinary care teams to share information and streamline workflows as patients move from acute to post-acute settings.

Chad Brisendine, CIO of SLUHN was convinced about the effectiveness of the newly implemented system “Through our partnership with Caradigm, our teams are already seeing benefits that include quicker turnaround times to initiate patient care, improved transitions of care workflows and enhanced sharing of clinical and claims data from in-patient and out-patient systems. We will continue to roll out Caradigm’s enterprise care coordination software across our organization as we scale our BPCI efforts”.

Caradigm’s 200+ customers include Greenville Health System, Billings Clinic and Virtua and other large integrated delivery networks, ACOs, academic medical centers, government facilities and community hospitals. Neal Singh, CEO and president of Caradigm, said, “We are proud to partner with St. Luke’s, an innovative national leader among BPCI participants, and are excited that it has achieved a rapid time to value with our integrated population health solutions. The initial deployment will serve as a great springboard to help St. Luke’s build momentum for its broader population health initiatives.”
