Collective Medical Joins the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative Partner Program


Collective allows HIEs to extend value to member entities through
access to rich and relevant patient insights at the point of care

, a leading national network for care collaboration, today
announced it has joined the Strategic Health Information Exchange
Collaborative (SHIEC) as a Strategic Business and Technology (SB&T)
Partner. SHIEC is the national trade association representing health
information exchanges (HIEs).

Collective's real-time, risk-adjusted event notification and care
collaboration platform serves all points of care across emergent,
in-patient, post-acute, mental and behavioral, and ambulatory settings,
as well as stakeholders in ACOs and health plans.

"We're honored to be a supporter of SHIEC and its members, including the
more than dozen HIEs with which we currently partner across the
country," said Chris Klomp, CEO of Collective Medical. "The most
vulnerable among us have needs that are not, and cannot, be served
through any single point of care or entity. Working together is the
right thing to do and another step toward making true care coordination
a reality."

Klomp adds that "as a complementary technology, we've seen our
partnerships with HIEs lead to greater provider engagement. We're able
to alert providers of an at-risk patient, thus enabling deeper use of an
HIE's services to support care decisions."

Collective recently announced a formal agreement with SacValley Medshare
HIE. Through the agreement, as described in an article by Health
Data Management
, members receive access to the Collective network
and intelligent alerts providing insights into patients with complex
conditions, specific care guidelines and plans, utilization patterns and
pain management contracts, as well as notifications on patients with a
history of violence or security risk. FierceHealthcare
recently covered a statewide effort led by the Commonwealth of Virginia
and ConnectVirginia HIE, through which Collective was able to connect
all 129 of the Commonwealth's hospitals, as well as its managed care
organizations, within six months as a part of the HIE-led Emergency
Department Care Coordination
program aimed at identifying and
supporting complex patients.

"SHIEC is excited to have Collective join the SB&T Partner program,"
said Kelly Hoover Thompson, CEO of SHIEC. "SB&T Partners are selected
based on their ability to bring unique, value-added solutions to our HIE
community members. Collective has proven its value to HIEs and their
members by providing rich, actionable insights to providers at the point
of care. SHIEC looks forward to working with Collective to build upon
the substantial progress of HIEs nationwide."


Collective Medical empowers care teams to improve patient outcomes by
closing the communication gaps that undermine patient care. With a
nationwide network engaged with every national health plan in the
country, hundreds of hospitals and health systems and tens of thousands
of providers, Collective's system-agnostic platform is trusted by care
teams to identify at-risk and complex patients and facilitate actionable
collaboration to make better care decisions and improve outcomes. Based
in Salt Lake City, Collective is proven to streamline transitions of
care, improve coordination across diverse care teams, and reduce
