The Collective platform
Collective Medical has developed a real-time event notification and care collaboration platform ideally positioned to enhance regions' and states' ability to identify, treat, trace and analyze infectious diseases, such as COVID-19.

Collective's COVID-19 functionality is being offered at no charge for all existing organizations on the Collective network. For organizations not yet participating, Collective's lightweight, rapidly deployable solution will be available at no cost through 2020.

Impact
Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
Due to the nature of the public health response and evolving approach to COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment, Collective is working directly with states, public health agencies, and related stakeholders in affected regions of the United States to develop additional solutions to support the response to COVID-19.

Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
Collective platform functionality:

Identify - combine information sourced from government agencies with Collective to push exposure history into ED workflows via a Collective notification.

Isolate - notify appropriate public health agency when high-risk individuals appear in a Collective facility. Provide identified information on which individual/facility to enable necessary outreach.

Treat - provide patient care team info including primary care providers, post-acute facilities, and health plan case manager contacts with information about their members at risk for COVID-19 or those who receive a positive diagnosis. Collective's technology allows for a provider to upload a completed PUI form. These forms can be accessed by the appropriate public health agencies. Additionally, they will be available to any provider on the network should a patient who initially screens negative return to a subsequent care facility.

Trace - public health workers can look up a patient's medical history including encounters, diagnoses, facilities visited, care team members and extensive demographic information within the Collective platform. Upon receipt of patient names and/or addresses that have been deemed under investigation for COVID-19, Collective can produce a regular report providing all individuals who may be potential contacts. This includes leveraging data from our extensive demographic database to generate all individuals who live with patients under investigation.
Level of adoption (i.e. list of customers/users, testimonials, etc.), if applicable
Hospitals, primary care clinics, behavioral health clinics, FQHCs, skilled nursing facilities and other ambulatory providers, health plans, community resources, epidemiologists, and public health organizations across the country are using Collective's COVID-19 functionality.
Impact (i.e. measurable outcomes), if applicable
Since the outbreak started, we've seen public health teams and epidemiologists work closely with broader provider communities. For example, the Department of Health in Washington State attempts to interview every patient with a positive lab test and provide public health recommendations. Public Health - Seattle & King County shares COVID-positive results with emergency departments across Washington state. Sharing this information with patients' care coordination teams helps alert providers when patients under their care have a positive test result.

Across the country, ConnectVirginia HIE (the statewide network for the Commonwealth of Virginia) has been working closely with the Virginia Department of Health to push information into the HIE on positive and negative COVID lab results. The data is filtered through Collective and provides information when a patient is admitted, discharged, or transferred from the hospital. This is then used to send information back to the health department, which has a better ability coordinate and identify patients that need extensive treatment or isolation.

The health department has previously had difficulty in both tracing patients and following up with them-due to poor demographic data-so Connect Virginia also helps by collecting this data when the patient is admitted to a hospital. Every health system in the state and 120 EDs are connected to the network, according to an article by Healthcare Innovation.
