Client Story

Coastal Carolina Health Care uses data to drive value-based care

Challenge

Coastal Carolina Health Care was looking to reduce unnecessary costs, and earn additional revenue, to remain competitive in a rapidly changing environment. For many years, CCHC managed its practice using paper records, but it recognized early that an electronic health record would be the only way to keep pace with regulatory requirements and increasing financial challenges. CCHC has successfully used Allscripts TouchWorks® EHR since 2006, as the core clinical solution for the practice and its accountable care organization (ACO).

Results

With Allscripts help, Coastal Carolina Health Care achieved:

  • Superior quality performance based on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Public Quality Reports
  • Improved clinical outcomes, by reducing the number of hospital admissions by 22%
  • Reduced cost of care by 4.2%
  • Increased value-based payments by earning $12M in Shared Savings.
