Deerwalk is pleased to announce the 1.7 release of Makalu, a data analytics platform. This release includes the following key features:

HRA and Biometrics Implementation in Member Search

Deerwalk’s clients have the option to import member specific biometric and HRA data into their Makalu application. As part of our expansion of clinical functionality in Makalu, the ability to filter, analyze and report using biometric and HRA data has been added in the Member Search module.

Incorporation of "Participation" Data

For clients who opt to bring program particiaption information into Makalu, the Makalu 1.7 release will add functionality that allows users to identify members who are participating in a specific program such as Diabetes Disease Management or Case Management and to use that information in filtering and reporting on members in their Makalu population. The “participation” functionality in this release is available in Data Search, Member Search, Member Summary and the Utilization report, allowing clients an expedited option for comparing results for those members particpating in a program to those not in a program. Participation information for clients using both Makalu and our Everest care management product will be integrated, and clients using an external care management system will be able to feed particpation information into their Makalu application on a scheduled basis.

PHI/Non PHI User Access

Functionality to limit a user’s access to PHI information in the application has been added. Users with a Non PHI level of access will not be able to view any PHI related fields throughout the application. Blinded member IDs are displayed for Non PHI users.
