MDI Achieve Enhances Matrix EHR Platform by Selecting COMS Interactive for Clinical Decision Support

Integrated Disease Management Solution Complements Leading EHR Platform

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN--(Marketwire - Jul 31, 2012) - As announced today at the 2012 LTC & Senior Living LINK Conference, MDI Achieve has reached an agreement with COMS Interactive, LLC (commonly known as COMS or Clinical Outcomes Management Systems) to offer additional clinical intelligence and solutions to current and new customers. The multi-faceted agreement will bring the power of COMS' Daylight IQ™ to MDI Achieve Matrix™, the eldercare continuum's leading Electronic Health Record platform. The combination creates a compelling, integrated platform to help eldercare organizations optimize reimbursement and reduce readmissions while providing better direct care for those residents that need it the most. 

"Matrix EHR customers will undoubtedly benefit from the COMS disease management product suite, which delivers important clinical outcomes data resulting in improved quality of care," noted Dennis Jakubowicz, Senior Vice President, MDI Achieve. "The COMS 5X value guarantee is unique in the industry and is further confirmation that Daylight IQ™ produces outstanding clinical and financial outcomes."

Matrix EHR is the industry-leading software that provides a complete operational, financial and clinical solution with EHR capabilities for the eldercare continuum. The product helps manage changes in the eldercare climate, which include falling reimbursement rates and ever-changing regulatory rules, and its delivery model improves clinical workflow and provides increased oversight through better management tools. Matrix EHR also provides comprehensive point of care documentation tools and mobile charting, and with the COMS relationship, will have integrated disease management as a key component of the organization's clinical product offering.

Daylight IQ™, integrated with Matrix EHR, is currently utilized by market-leading skilled nursing facilities nationwide. The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product features a series of integrated modules, and a disease-based library of clinical protocols. The product suite significantly empowers an organization's entire care team including physicians, therapists, nurses, and nurse aides at the point of care, and facilitates enhanced communication between all parties. A key component of the Daylight IQ™ product suite is a reduction in unnecessary hospital readmissions by as much as 50%, a related decrease in premature mortality rates, and an increase in successful discharges.

"As a recognized technical leader in the skilled nursing/EHR marketplace, MDI Achieve continues to offer enhanced products and processes," noted Edward J. Tromczynski, Chief Executive Officer, COMS Interactive. "We are most enthusiastic about partnering with MDI Achieve in providing exceptional clinical and financial outcomes to our collective customers."

Industry data shows that the average Nursing Home, Home Care or Assisted Living resident has a complicated disease profile, with one primary disease and up to eight secondary diseases or afflictions. Over 70% of re-hospitalizations are due to the progression of secondary or new diseases. By providing early detection of changes in condition, a combination of MDI Achieve services and the Daylight IQ™ product suite will identify potential problems and offer caregivers the opportunity to respond, preventing further progression of the illness or affliction.
