As healthcare costs continue to shift to the patient, consumers must be empowered with new resources to manage their healthcare responsibilities and their personal health. Personal Health Records (PHRs), which continue to gain prominence as a critical component of healthcare, enable consumers to more effectively track healthcare transactions and personal health history information – and also serve as a conduit to help patients more effectively communicate with physicians and take a more active role in their healthcare.
FIS’ HealthManager, formerly CapMed’s interactive personal health management solution, makes personal health information meaningful for consumers, and enables them to actively manage personal health any time, anywhere.
HealthManager is designed to capture clinically-rich data, enabling users to maintain a complete health history for themselves and their loved ones, and optimize prevention and health maintenance. To ensure easy interpretation of captured data, the platform is problem-oriented, enabling users to track prescriptions and other diagnostic information related to a particular condition, such as diabetes. Key clinical data points, such as blood pressure, are graphed to illustrate trends and highlight significant changes. Robust reporting features enable consumers to extract, analyze, and communicate critical information in numerous ways.
HealthManager empowers users with a wide array of education and clinical decision-support tools. The PHR dashboard links consumers to a variety of personalized education content – including personalized health education and online access to caregivers. Through customizable reminders and alerts, consumers are reminded of important tasks and receive helpful hints to better manage their care – everything from refilling prescriptions, identifying gaps in care, warning about potential drug interactions, and reminders about preventative activity. Built-in logic enables the system to proactively alert the patient to values outside of normal ranges or actions that need to be taken.
The integration of a HealthManager into FIS’ Healthcare Payment Solutions portfolio has created the industry’s most comprehensive CDH solution set that combines health and wealth management. HealthManager integrates with FIS’ Health & Financial Network solutions, enabling claim feeds directly from the payer and eliminating the need for manual/double entry by the consumer. Together with Bensoft, FIS’ CDH benefit account administration platform, HealthManager can receive transactional feeds from consumers’ tax-sheltered benefit accounts and helps track healthcare spending and savings – in addition to their personal health information. By bringing together health and wealth information, and making it readily accessible, FIS empowers consumers to take a more active role in their healthcare.
