AdvantageCare Physicians is one of the largest multi-specialty physician practices in the New York metropolitan region, comprised of more than 400 primary care physicians and specialists in 39 convenient locations and offering an expansive complement of primary and specialty care services.

Advantage Care Physicians went live with Epic 2014 earlier this year and completed this large undertaking with a record time of transition and implementation of a little over 1 year and 6 months. Contineo Health’s BI Team has handled the data conversion from the legacy systems (Nexgen) into Epic. The team is currently replacing all legacy reports with custom reports on Epic databases. There were 4 different legacy systems and numerous custom reports for each system. Overall, the Epic modules that have gone live at this point in time are Cadence, Prelude, Ambulatory and Professional Billing. The team also works on data extraction and report writing for all types of Clinical, Financial and Regulatory Purposes.

Contineo’s Business Intelligence and IT Enabled Services Team has been in charge of how the EMR implementation is progressing; highlighting any operational or implementation bottlenecks. This involves creating summary data and continually communicating with end users. In addition to report distribution, his role involves gathering various data and fulfilling ad hoc report requests by CTO and Executive levels. Some of this reporting also covers provider and caregivers hygiene metrics.

Our team has also been responsible for building reports on the Clarity Database; which helps in improving quality and patient safety. Contineo’s team worked on both Epic databases, Clarity and Chronicles to write reports and extract data for Clinical, Financial and Regulatory purposes which requires understanding and analyzing the reports which were used on the legacy systems so that equivalent reports and data can be extracted from Epic.
