New Technology Demonstration

Looking for Early Adopters to Use a Solution to Answer the Question:

What does it take to get physicians to document and send medical records? 


We would like to gauge your interest in joining our user group cohort for Tyrula’s RAMP platform. RAMP enables Medicare Advantage plans to prioritize high-risk patients, confirm patients’ chronic conditions, transmit their medical records, and get paid for it. RAMP streamlines a few of the tasks that we know can be frustrating for a lot of plans in their interactions with practices.

The Problem:

  1. First, plans need access to retrospective clinical data for risk adjustment. Health plans have invested a lot in analytics and data mining tools, and provider education and coding technology but still are unable to easily get access to clinical data. Even with incentives, it has been challenging to get access to clinical data. RAMP helps change provider behavior by reducing provider abrasion.
  2. Second, health plans are trying to "teach" providers to engage members and document medical records, but are finding it difficult because physicians feel that they don't have the time.  Moreover, physicians did not go to school to learn how to document, so even with performance-based bonuses, they resist efforts to change how they document their care today. The RAMP platform eases this burden and facilitates better payer-provider communication. 

Tyrula’s Ask:

We are looking for about 6 Medicare Advantage plans to confirm that the identified major sources of frustration can be solved with RAMP. We are looking for feedback to incorporate into the product. We’d ask you to use it for 4 to 6 weeks. 

We’ll provide all the necessary training. After implementation, we require an hour a week to discuss the project and a few hours at the end of the program for structured feedback. This will give us a sense of how we might improve the RAMP platform in the future.  Ideally, the cohort program will start from March to April 2015. Participation is at no additional cost to plans and should the participants decide to subscribe to the solution, they will get at 20% discount to the first year’s subscription price. If you’re interested to learn more about this initiative, please send us an e-mail to or call  Kam @ 703.776.0156  or enter information at the following link:

CMS Gives EDPS Transition Some Breathing Room

CMS published the final call letter for 2018 yesterday, April 3, which included a welcome accouncement regarding the transition from RAPS to EDPS-based RAF scores. Citing numerous public comments on the subject, CMS throttled back the speed with which they plan to switch over to an encounter-based methodology. Instead of the blended rates originally contemplated, they announced that the more modest blend of 85% RAPS to 15% EDPS would be used in 2018, allowing more time to improve the reliability of the encounter data methods. While the RISE data collaboration study was not cited, we believe that the educational value of our study, along with our communication and advocacy of a more moderate approach by CMS, contributed to the confidence with which plans and other interested parties spoke up during the open comment period. Once again, we owe thanks to the folks at Avalere and Inovalon, as well as at AHIP, for the collegial and professional collaboration. Also, we want to thank the health plans that actively participated in our study for making this work possible. ...

Take Aways from RISE Nashville Summit

The 11th Annual RISE Nashville Summit continued the event’s tradition of yearly growth. The return to downtown Nashville was widely applauded by attendees, who were glad to be back near Broadway’s nighttime funk and fun. While festive, this year's event occurred in the wake of the new administration in Washington, D.C., and the healthcare themes surrounding the "repeal and replace" of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) cast a long shadow. In contrast to the upbeat, confident notes struck by last year’s keynote speaker Senator Tom Daschle, this year’s sobering keynote address by Howard Fineman, NBC/MSNBC political analyst, The Huffington Post Media Group global editorial director, and bestselling author, was an assessment of the pluses and minuses of our new president. Mr. Fineman's remarks indicated that the political alliances in power will seek to undo what Senator Daschle viewed as "irreversible” a year ago....

The Impact of Quality Incentive Models in Medicaid Markets


Thirty-one of our fifty states now have Medicaid managed care, and several markets are expected to implement managed care in the next few years. More than $160B in Medicaid spending occurs through the Managed Care Organizations. As more and more states seek to do more with less, increasing accountability for health quality outcomes is placed on health plans. Join this webinar to learn the typical quality payment approaches states use, issues often faced by health plans under each model and what states are expected to do with payment models tied to quality performance in light of near term Medicaid reform efforts.
