National data sets from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services reveal that Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) that use PatientPing, a care coordination platform, have seen higher savings than other ACOs, the company reported.
PatientPing gives “real-time” notifications to providers whenever a patient receives care at another institution. It also gives the caregivers what the company calls a story, which includes context about the attributed provider, visit histories, and care program affiliations.
One hundred percent of Next Generation ACOs who were PatientPing customers earned shared savings, whereas just 61 percent of all Next Generation ACOs did, according to a statement from PatientPing. PatientPing also reported that while 31 percent of ACOs in the Medicare Shared Savings Program saw shared savings nationally, PatientPing ACOs saw an almost 20 percent higher success rate. Altogether, PatientPing customers saved saved more than $120 million over the year.
