Aledade Adds App Functionality To Identify COVID-19 Vulnerable Patients

by Aledade

At Aledade, we take very seriously our mission to support and empower primary care practices. As such, the Aledade App now displays a new COVID-19 vulnerability risk score to help its partner practices keep appropriate patients healthy and home.

The App assigns a COVID-19 vulnerability category based on patient characteristics that correlate with higher morbidity and mortality from COVID-19 infection. Age and chronic conditions such as CVD, COPD, HTN, DM, and cancer are associated with higher vulnerability.

"Today's release is the latest example of Aledade's dedication to our primary care practices. Over the last six years we have wired each practices' systems into Aledade's data warehouse and built and trained a population health tool that's easy to use." stated Edwin Miller, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Aledade "With the advent of COVID-19 we were able to, in a matter of days, add a risk scoring algorithm to identify patients most at risk of complications from the virus. Once we had the algorithm we could easily provide an actionable workflow to outreach to those patients. Since every Aledade partner practice already knows how to use the app, it's very easy for them to identify and care for high risk paitents without additional training."

The Aledade App was developed to provide practices with easy access to integrated data from across the care continuum so that they can focus on their highest priority; their patients. With access to electronic health records, hospital event notifications, labs, pharmacies, insights from practice-generated and payer claims all in one place, the Aledade App enables physicians to engage with the right patients at the right time.
