Parkview Medical Center to connect patients with community services via IT system

Pueblo, Colo.-based Parkview Medical Center entered into a multiyear agreement with Pieces Technologies to connect its patients with community services using IT solutions, the health IT firm confirmed June 19.

Pieces Technologies, a health IT firm and spinoff of the Dallas-based Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation, applies artificial intelligence, natural language processing and predictive modeling capabilities to patients' clinical and social determinants of health data to follow their care journeys and provide decision support across the care and community continuum.

Under the agreement, Parkview Medical Center will implement Pieces Decision Sciences for inpatient clinical predictive modeling, and deploy Pieces Iris for community-based referral and case management. Pieces Iris analyzes patients' clinical and social determinants of health data to facilitate referrals between the hospital and community-based organizations such as food banks, homeless shelters and job assistance nonprofits.

"Parkview Medical Center is proud to partner with Pieces Technologies to further our community-focused mission of providing the highest quality of health care to the people we serve," Greg Bowman, MD, chief quality officer of Parkview Medical Center, said in a June 19 statement.
