Pega Care Management includes these portals: Care Management, Utilization Management, Business Analyst, and Customer Interaction.
The Care Management portal allows for the management of patients who are either enrolled in a program or being managed outside of a program, thereby providing a complete picture of the patient’s current and past health status. The portal provides a full 360 view of the patient and allows for the customization, tracking, and management of problems, goals, interventions, barriers, and programs. It allows the aggregation of data to present a full 360-degree view of the patient in a single system.
The Utilization Management portals allow utilization management staff to enter and review referrals, authorizations, admissions with concurrent review with discharge and transition planning, while maintaining visibility to urgency and next work. Integrated clinical vendor guidelines available for seamless embedded medical necessity review. Attachments are easily managed and easy to find.
The Business Analyst portal allows a business analyst to configure care templates, define goals, alerts, programs, and problems to build care plans and care programs. This streamlines the ability to launch care for a subset of patients and creates a framework from which a care plan and program personalization can begin.
The Customer Interaction portal provides better customer experience by using Pega-provided features for care management using customer service capabilities. A key flow such as program referral is exposed in this portal so that a Pega Care Management representative can easily complete the intake process for the member. The control is then passed to a clinical person to manage the case further. There are different tasks available, based on whether the calling person is a patient or provider. Also, there is an option of making outbound call to the patients when needed. You can initiate inbound and outbound calls, chat sessions, and co-browse sessions with patient and provider, and can access the Knowledge Management portal if needed during any of the conversations with a patient or provider.
