We are excited to announce the launch of another new application in the Provider Engagement, Analytics & Reporting (PEAR) portal: PEAR Comprehensive Visit, launching in 2021.
What is PEAR Comprehensive Visit?
PEAR Comprehensive Visit is a new point-of-care application that assists primary care providers with accurate documentation of a member’s visit, assessment, and treatment plan. This will replace the ePASS® tool for this health plan. Assessments entered in PEAR Comprehensive Visit will be considered official medical records that document the comprehensive elements of a member encounter including vitals, review of systems, diagnoses, quality measures, and social determinants of health. PEAR Comprehensive Visit has been designed to support the familiar format of a SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) note with logic that offers diagnosis and screening considerations to assist in coordinating care.
Benefits of PEAR Comprehensive Visit
PEAR Comprehensive Visit is designed to:
- Improve accuracy of ICD-10 diagnosis coding
- Manage the continuity of your patient’s annual health status, including documenting both acute and chronic conditions
- Improve quality measures by accurately tracking your patient's preventative screening status (i.e., Flu vaccine, breast cancer screening, colon cancer screening, etc.)
Eligible primary care provider groups can earn an incentive for completing an assessment. Details on the incentive opportunity for 2021 will be shared in the coming months.
Office administrators can gain access to the tool to assist in preparing the assessment for the physician’s review and attestation. PEAR Comprehensive Visit is loaded with real-time data, supporting an enhanced user experience with the ability to prepare the assessment prior to the patient’s visit so that the form can be referenced at point of care.
PEAR Comprehensive Visit will be gradually rolled out in 2021. More information on your practice's PEAR Comprehensive Visit launch date and how to get ready will be shared as it becomes available. For now, continue to use ePASS® and refer to the dedicated PEAR portal page and the PEAR portal FAQ for more information.
Stay tuned to Partners in Health UpdateSM for ongoing communications related to the transition to PEAR Comprehensive Visit and announcements of additional PEAR portal tools!
