CarePort Health and Jackson Health System Extend Care Management Partnership and Launch a First-of-its-Kind Integration with the Health System EHR

Health, a leading provider of care management and post-acute
outcomes solutions, today announced that longtime Care
Management client Jackson
Health System will continue its partnership and extend its agreement
to utilize CarePort’s discharge planning and referral management
platforms at six Miami-area hospitals, medical centers and long-term
care facilities. Additionally, CarePort and Jackson Health System
developed a first-of-its-kind integration solution between the
hospital’s Cerner EHR and the CarePort Care Management platform. The
solution improves end-user workflow and enhances efficiency while
providing a more seamless experience for staff to deliver the right care
at the right time. This partnership helps Jackson Health System further
expand its already-impressive quality of care services for residents of
Miami-Dade County.

The newly created integration solution allows users to launch directly
into the referral creation workflow within CarePort via single sign-on
(SSO) from the Cerner application while keeping patient data accessible
throughout both systems. The integration allows users to
view and identify specific clinical data to create a referral specific
to the patient’s clinical needs.

“At Jackson Health System, we strive to provide our patients with the
highest level of quality care possible. In order to achieve this goal,
we applied a highly-innovative strategy by designing and building the
integration between these two disparate and unconnected systems,” said
Michael Garcia, SVP & CIO at Jackson Health System. “This integration
has enabled us to improve the delivery of quality patient care while
also enhancing clinician satisfaction through the use of this innovative

Another key element of this bidirectional integration was to ensure that
the final location of the patient’s placement is sent back to Jackson
Health System’s Cerner EHR, thereby completing the referral process and
increasing the visibility for providers across the care
continuum. Jackson Health System is the first CarePort client to
establish this level of integration between a Cerner EHR system and
CarePort’s discharge planning application.

“Partnering with Jackson Health System to further embed our care
management tools into the EHR is another step in our efforts towards
improving transitions of care,” said Lissy Hu, CEO and founder of
CarePort. “We look forward to continuing to partner with innovative
customers such as Jackson Health to streamline care management workflows
and innovate to improve patient outcomes across the continuum.”

of its centerpiece, Jackson Memorial Hospital, Jackson South Medical
Center, Jackson North Medical Center, Holtz Children’s Hospital, Jackson
