We know that delivering high quality care when and where it is needed most is critical to those responsible for Accountable Care. Naturally, we’ve created our software with these priorities in mind in order to deliver the value and benefits that ACOs expect.
Conduct Assessments and Perform Risk Stratification
Fonemed’s Population Health Management Platform offers Primary Assessments that are completely configurable and can be easily adapted to organizational requirements. These assessments are a powerful tool that can be used to identify current health issues, and patient needs for support and education, reveal any gaps in care, and populate a plan of care. By using these evidence-based health risk assessments, clinicians can derive the complete state of health for a patient.
A simple, intuitive interface guides the clinician through the process of collecting the patient’s data efficiently, resulting in a patient-centric profile and the generation of the critical baseline measurements to be used in the patient’s plan of care. The quantifiable outcomes assessments data can then be used to identify subsets of patients who drive cost, utilization and resource consumption.
Develop and Manage Your Patient’s Plan of Care
The plan of care provides a patient a path to positive health outcomes and helps them reach their goals with support from a clinical care team. It provides the necessary foundation for teaching patients how to better understand and manage their condition(s) so that they may improve or control its health impact. The plan of care is generated automatically after conducting the primary assessment and is immediately available in the system’s user interface for final approval by the medical provider.
Care Delivery Management and Oversight
Once the member-centric profile is created, the care team can utilize the system assessment dashboard to monitor their patient’s data and track encounters throughout the continuum of care. Using robust analytics, care coordinators, nurse navigators and other clinicians can continuously monitor patients and populations, identify trends and make adjustments to care plans or perform interventions when necessary. Conducting regular, periodic assessments are easy using our software and it can greatly assist providers in engaging the patient in a relationship that supports positive health outcomes.

Physician Portal Access
The Fonemed Population Health Management System (PHMS) also offers a valuable interface for physicians to access their patients’ information and coordinate care. Physicians can easily view any patient profile, approve care plans and receive notifications from patient monitoring alerts.
Physicians can develop a deeper understanding of their patients’ by accessing rich-data patient profiles that contain information such as:

- Culture and home environment
- Weight, diet and nutrition information
- Lifestyle and habits
- Data supplied by remote monitoring devices
Combined with other information provided by the patient, home-health nurses, or other caregivers outside of the care facility, physicians are equipped to make stronger health care decisions on behalf of their patients.
Key features of the physician portal include:
- Browse and review patients information and reports
- Message both patient and other care providers
Patient Portal Access
Our patient portal offers the ability for a patient or designated caregiver to monitor not only their own data, but data submitted by others involved in their care as well.

Patient portals enhance patient engagement and empower patients to play a greater role in their own health.
To help ensure more accountable care, members can also provide feedback about the quality of care they have received and the effectiveness of health education resources directly from the patient portal.
