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:

It’s not Obamacare anymore. It’s our national health-care system.

By Drew Altman and Larry Levitt July 29 Drew Altman is president and chief executive of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. Larry Levitt is senior vice president of the Kaiser Foundation. Republicans failed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act early Friday because of divisions within their own ranks, and because they tried not only to repeal and replace the ACA but also to cut and cap the Medicaid program, generating opposition from many red-state governors and their senators. But most of all, they failed because they built their various plans on the false claim — busted by the Congressional Budget Office — that they could maintain the same coverage levels as the ACA and lower premiums and deductibles, while at the same time slashing about a trillion dollars from Medicaid and ACA subsidies and softening the ACA’s consumer protection regulations. Had they succeeded, they would have won a big short-term victory with their base, which strongly supports repeal, but suffered the consequences in subsequent elections as the same voters lost coverage or were hit with higher premiums and deductibles. ...

Where to Now? True North Again

By Kevin Mowll, Executive Director of the RISE Association The failure of the Republicans to repeal, replace, or wreck ObamaCare is a wakeup call for everyone, not just Republicans. While the RISE Association steers away from purely political commentary, the lesson of this protracted political mess needs to be called out for the sake of putting our priorities straight around public policy regarding healthcare reform. In the attached Wall Street Journal article, which suggests that bipartisan solutions are the only remaining way forward, the author proffers hope that the blistering truth will be obvious to all the participants in the 7-year-long fracas around repeal and replace. The bloodied players may still brood in frustration that their political wills were not enough to win, but the author wonders if cooler heads will prevail. I, for one, am not so sanguine; yet I can only hope. The lesson I take away from the many years of wrangling is that the ObamaCare political football games demonstrates that political wills are not the way forward. They lose sight of the True North issue at hand. Rather, the failures of both political parties in arriving at a bipartisan solution signals the fact that what is good for America is good healthcare policy, not political prowess over rivals. Governing from the fringe is not sustainable in a democracy. ...
