DocSpera, the leading surgical care coordination platform, has partnered with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to bring Blue Button 2.0 to medical providers on the DocSpera network. With Blue Button 2.0, providers now have the opportunity to access four years of Medicare Part A, B & D data for an estimated 53 million beneficiaries. The information includes drug prescriptions, primary care treatment and cost, and Medicare coverage details. A full list of available data can be seen here. This feature empowers surgeons to improve surgical outcomes while lowering the costs. Data history enabled by Blue Button will facilitate communication between patients and healthcare providers, speed up diagnosis and treatment as well as drive decision support.
Blue Button provided by CMS is a big step forward. It lets patients, providers and software services use the vast, yet difficult to access, patient health data to drive improved healthcare outcomes. It allows patients to access and share their personal health information in order to receive faster and right care.
By enabling Blue Button, DocSpera is allowing its surgeon members to access the patient consented medical history data to share and power improved risk stratification through DocSpera’s decision support platform. Integration of Blue Button, along with the episodic data captured within DocSpera’s platform, allows the company to provide insights and analytics to empower surgeons to make better decisions via accurate data and therefore save time and reduce cost while improving the quality of care.
Patients in parallel, will have access and control over their health care data as well as benefit from a faster, better and more cost-effective care.
