Analytics tools: More than 70 million Americans have high cholesterol, putting them at increased risk for heart disease, stroke and other life-threatening conditions. With an analytics solution, providers can proactively identify and monitor hyperlipidemia risk factors such as smoking, obesity and poor diet, so they can intervene early and prevent progression.
Patient engagement tools: For patients with elevated cholesterol, management is a day-to-day job. Support tools — such as online patient education and secure messaging with care teams— encourage and equip patients to manage hyperlipidemia.
Appointment reminder tools: Providers can encourage care plan adherence and accurate, consistent care by sending patients appointment reminders by phone, text or email.
Information exchange tools: Patients with high cholesterol often require regular visits with a primary care provider, cardiologist, dietician and lipidologist — each maintaining their own clinical documentation. With clinical information exchange, members of the care team can electronically share dietary restrictions, prescriptions and other data to improve visibility into a patient’s progress.
Patient engagement tools: Using Greenway Patient, an online portal, patients can initiate data sharing by securely sending cholesterol, triglyceride and other records to providers. The portal also enables patients to view their treatment plans and medication lists to help ensure plan adherence.
Electronic health records (EHRs): Because data sharing is only helpful when health records completely capture pertinent information, electronic health records (EHRs) with clinical templates for hyperlipidemia-related visits such as cholesterol recheck and dyslipidemia can help providers document comprehensively without taking attention away from patients.
Eligibility verification: Successfully controlling high cholesterol can prevent heart attacks, stroke and other serious and costly illnesses. Especially for the growing number of patients covered by high-deductible health plans, affordably managing hyperlipidemia is an effective strategy for saving money now and in the future. Greenway’s eligibility verification and ePrescribing tools can help manage costs by checking insurance eligibility and formularies to determine coverage for services and prescriptions.
Medical billing solutions: Greenway Health’s financial services can also help practices understand and explain patient responsibility before services are rendered.
