Vital Affinitē™ Platform:
The Vital Affinitē platform is designed to make effective quality programming and management practical.
Quality initiatives are built upon continuous analysis of traditional patient claims and clinical data from all sites of care as well as non-traditional information (e.g. socio-economic, geographic, weather…) that impact populations’ health. These, in turn, facilitate the creation of optimized, specific CareFlow Automation™, care workflows.
Whether it is simply identifying basic care activities that trigger specific interventions, or complex, member-specific care coordination activities that involve multiple stakeholders and frequent coordination with the patient, Vital Affinitē delivers a comprehensive set of automated resources and functionality that augment the requisite CareFlows, making them routine and manageable.
Vital Affinitē augments well-designed workflows by
- Using analytics to identify opportunities for improvement

ProviderLink is a collaborative communication tool to engage physicians and other providers regarding important care management initiatives; including HEDIS® notices, medication compliance, ER utilization and more. Help your providers take action on meaningful and actionable information to improve quality of care and lower costs, impacting positive member behavior and quality outcomes. Engage your members with care initiatives from their patient-centric viewpoint. Interact and communicate with your members, improving care coordination and care management initiatives. Messages are sent directly to members, establishing a vital communication link between health plan care managers, PCPs and your member.
The primary care physician is the frontline of care management and coordination, so active participation in quality programs and initiatives is essential. But the demands on physicians are already overwhelming to the point that participation in new initiatives is limited, especially ones viewed as administrative.
We have taken great care to design ProviderLink and associated interactions to require minimum effort and time for maximum benefits through alignment of goals and incentives. The application helps physicians to make better decisions and coordinate care through timely communication of information available from the Platform. In addition, the application helps physician's practices become more efficient by helping to monitor, organize and prioritizes care and administrative activities as well as identify opportunities to grow their practice.
