Urix Releases New Care Management Tool

CaseSmartSM is the first integrated product release after the unification of Urix and DxCG

BOSTON, October 30, 2007 — Urix, Inc., an ISO business, announces the release of CaseSmartSM, the first integrated product since the corporate union of Urix and DxCG. CaseSmart combines Urix smart technology with next generation DxCG science to help significantly improve care management planning, assessment and efficiency.

CaseSmart combines data mining and predictive models, filtering and analytics to rapidly identify, stratify, evaluate and prioritize cases through a user-friendly, web-based interface. Once cases are scored using advanced DxCG predictive models, CaseSmart provides filtering and ranking with point-click ease, so prioritization and evaluation is quick and easy, resulting in saved time and money.

“CaseSmart is a collaborative tool that allows nurses to employ their clinical evaluation skills to build care focused filters and select the best cases for interventions. CaseSmart thinks like a physician, and uses train of thought clinical analysis, which results in efficient, easy, and fast data mining,” stated John Farrell, president of Urix, Inc. “Now, nurses can spend more time with patients and less time assessing cases, which allows for superior quality care and an improved ROI.”

“CaseSmart incorporates DxCG’s proven Diagnostic Cost Group methodology for case identification and our advanced Likelihood of Hospitalization Model for case prioritization.  Care managers now have an innovative tool with a trusted methodology to determine potentially high cost cases, likelihood of hospitalization, and care gaps so that care can be optimized by intervention and evaluation,” said Andrea Cianfarini, research director at DxCG, Urix’s Science Division.
