Misys partners with OCS on predictive modeling
Misys Healthcare Systems announced a strategic alliance with OCS Inc. to integrate online performance measurement systems, analytic software and predictive modeling reporting tools that will be delivered as part of the Misys Homecare software solution. The companies' partnership aims to help homecare agencies optimize patient care while reducing hospital readmissions and overall healthcare costs associated with chronic disease. 

As a new feature to its homecare software, Misys will employ the OCS predictive modeling capability, which utilizes statistical models and the patient data available in the homecare industry to predict an individual patient’s level of risk. Predictive modeling, which forecasts the likelihood of future events based on data from the past, enables agencies to improve disease management, patient outcomes, cost and profitability and resource planning in home health agencies.

“This relationship combines our leadership in data-driven patient-level performance measurement systems with Misys’ expertise as one of the leading providers of clinical and business solutions for the healthcare market,” said Amanda Twiss, OCS president. “This partnership will provide the most compelling offerings available in the home healthcare market today as well as offerings to prepare clients for future industry developments.”
