Great news! Secure, open communication will soon be available to ColigoCare providers via Uniphy, our branded communication tool. Uniphy will enable you to send secure text messages and other correspondence directly to your ColigoCare colleagues. It will also provide you with streamlined access to important ColigoCare information such as phone numbers, events and newsletters.
We are working with the app company to design our customized ColigoCare app, and we anticipate that it will be available in early fall. Once the app is finalized, it will be accessible through your smart phone or tablet device.
Athena Population Health Solution
ColigoCare is using the Athena Population Health Solution for collecting and analyzing financial and clinical data. At this time, we have compiled our CMS data and are working closely with Athena to import our commercial payer information.
In addition, the build-out of interfaces for non-Athena practices is in progress and, as such, the data is starting to be collected.
