COVID-19 and Tracking the Public Health

Collective Medical has been a player in tracking patients safely to improve care for years, but their emergence exploded amid the national effort to stop opioid abuse. Now, their model is seen as a major opportunity in the COVID-19 outbreak with their COVID-19 functionality being offered at no charge for all existing organizations on the Collective Medical network. The functionality leverages data from all 50 states, advanced patient matching, and real-time communication within provider workflows for better care and response.

With talk with Collective Medical CEO Chris Klomp on his experience bringing Collective Medical from an Excel spreadsheet developed by a social worker to where it is today as a foremost technology helping hospitals and their extended clinical networks examine patient behaviors and deliver interventions to improve outcomes.
