Collective Medical

Collective Medical empowers physicians, nurses, and other care providers to focus on the patient right in front of them, improving the quality and efficiency of patient care through actionable real-time notifications.

Overview

Collective Medical’s nationwide network of engaged care team members offers transparency for providers through patient histories, ADT information, and collaborative care plans—identifying vulnerable patients in real-time and helping care teams address their needs at the point-of-care—in more than half of U.S. states.

Collective helps providers across the country address key issues like substance use disorder, value-based care optimization, collaboration with behavioral health, workplace violence prevention, and ED optimization. It serves all points of care, supporting care teams across emergent, in-patient, post-acute, mental and behavioral, and ambulatory settings, as well as stakeholders in ACOs and health plans.

Use of the Collective network has been proven to reduce avoidable hospital admissions and readmissions, reduce avoidable ED visits by identified frequent users, reduce unnecessary opioid prescriptions, increase savings and improve provider satisfaction.

Benefits

  • Connect patient utilization and prescription histories to flag patients at risk for SUD and collaborate with other resources on the path to recovery. Using Collective, Mat-Su Regional Medical Center near Anchorage, Alaska reduced opioid prescriptions written by 80 percent within three years of implementation. 
  • Improve transitions of care and reduce readmissions by identifying at-risk patients and collaborating in real-time with hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health and other post-acute providers to support and track these patients post-discharge.
  • Columbia Medical Associates reduced ED utilization by 15 percent—resulting in an estimated $6.5 million reduction in care costs. 
  • Achieve better outcomes for those struggling with mental or behavioral health concerns with groundbreaking consent functionality for real-time communication between providers across the health care spectrum. Using this, Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Massachusetts reduced ED utilization from behavioral health patients by 78 percent. 
  • Take control of workplace safety by receiving immediate notifications whenever a patient with a history of, or risk for, violence presents. CHI St. Anthony increased workplace violence reporting rates by 20 percent, qualifying the hospital for much-needed funding to establish a security facility. 
  • Increase efficiency and improve patient outcomes by minimizing unnecessary ED utilization, streamlining care, and increasing cost savings with access to patient histories and care guidelines integrated directly into existing workflows. Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center in Washington state reduced ED visit rates patients with high utilization by 81 percent.
