Christiana Care Wins Innovation Award

June 24, 2012

Wilmington, Delaware-based Christiana Care Health System was awarded $10 million from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to design a new care model that will pioneer health IT to transcend the gaps that currently exist within health care to provide more coordinated care and greater value for patients.

CMMI is the agency’s highly-competitive “Health Care Innovation Awards,” Christiana Care’s proposal is tailored to use existing hospital and office information systems to trigger alerts specifically for patients who need extra care both during hospitalization and upon discharge to their homes. The alerts will help a team of nurses and other health care professionals respond quickly and effectively to the patients, enabling them to recuperate in their homes and safeguarding them from symptoms that can result in a costly readmission.
