Collective Medical

Collective’s nationwide network of engaged care team members offers transparency through patient histories and collaborative care plans—identifying vulnerable patients in real-time and helping care teams address needs at the point-of-care.

Collective Medical operates the nation’s leading ADT-based care collaboration network. Our nationwide reach and actionable real-time patient notifications empower care teams to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care—even for those who are first-to-network in their area. Using smart data integration tools, Collective helps providers direct patients to receive optimal care—when they need it and from those best positioned to deliver it. With the platform, providers and care teams across the country see proven results addressing key issues like substance use disorder, value-based care optimization, collaboration with behavioral health, workplace violence prevention, social determinants of health, and ED optimization.

Use Cases

  • Increase efficiency and improve patient outcomes by minimizing unnecessary ED utilization, streamlining care, and increasing cost savings with access to patient histories and care guidelines integrated directly into existing workflows.
  • Take control of workplace safety by receiving immediate notifications whenever a patient with a history or risk of violence—including physical assault, beral threats, theft, sexual assault, and self harm—presents.
  • Connect patient utilization and prescription histories across care settings to flag patients at-risk for substance use disorder—and collaborate with providers and other resources on the path to recovery.
  • Achieve better patient outcomes for those struggling with mental or behavioral health concerns with groundbreaking consent functionality for real-time communication between providers across the healthcare spectrum. The Collective platform has facilitated better collaboration between hospitals and behavioral health providers, leading to a 78% reduction in ED use for patients with behavioral health conditions.

Key Features

Direct EHR Integration

Collective’s bi-directional EHR integration receives real-time admit, discharge, and transfer (ADT) and continuity of care (CCD) information from thousands of care entities across the nation, offering unique insight into where millions of patients are daily and which of them require help. This SMART on FHIR app removes the need for double documentation of Care Insights and Safety & Security notes being exchanged with the Collective platform. Additionally, Collective automatically pushes alerts and curated care information directly into existing workflows, offering care team members immediate insight into the patient right in front of them.

Automatic Identification and Notification of Vulnerable Individuals

Upon registration in the emergency department, Collective’s intelligent analytics automatically identify patients in need of special care, then delivers in-EHR notifications to front-line providers: high or rising patterns of ED utilization, collaborative care plans or curated histories of care, a history of sepsis, historical violence or safety concerns, and significant prescription histories.

Real-Time Care Collaboration Between Care Teams

The Collective platform lists each member of the patient’s care team, regardless of geography, with contact information for each. More importantly, each of these users are empowered to add historical care details and collaborative plans for future care to the information automatically gathered from the EHR. All of this information and more is automatically delivered back to the EHR when a patient in need of attention is identified by Collective’s analytics, and is made available on demand in the Collective portal.

Patient Segmenting and Reporting

Collective’s users are enabled to group individual patients for monitoring or future follow-up—and the platform offers live reporting of those patients’ activities across the network to help case managers and social workers care for those individuals. In addition, a regular emergency department census report is delivered, showing demographics, encounter information, and utilization metrics for all patients who have recently visited the hospital’s emergency department.
