Makalu 2.0 Release
August 06, 2013
Deerwalk is pleased to announce the 2.0 release of Makalu. This release includes the following key features:
Additional Biometric and HRA Filters
In Makalu 2.0,additional biometric and Health Risk Assessment (HRA) elements were added to the filtering options in Date Search (CL 112B & CL 112H) and Member Search (CL118).
And /Or Filtering
The capability to do "and/or" filtering is now available in Member Search for biometric data and HRA data (CL118). This functionality will allow users to do queries such as "members with a diastolic blood pressure >90 or a BMI >29.9" or "members with diabetes who currently smoke and are willing to change their tobacco use".
PHI / Non-PHI Access at the Group Level
The ability for a specific user to have access to PHI or not at the group level has been added in Makalu. That will make it possible for Deerwalk to support clients who would like to give limited group access to a user(s) without requiring Deerwalk to create a separate application.
Addition of Member Months in Utilization Metrics
The metric "Member Months" has been added in the Utilization Metrics report in Care Analytics.
Health Plan "Custom" Report Changes
In the Care Analytics section of Makalu, some reports such as Chronic Conditions and Utilization Metrics offer the user the option to view the results for some metrics as "per 1,000" or by the actual “total” number of events. Previously, the Makalu Health Plan Report defaulted to including the "per 1,000" results. Users now have the opportunity when they chose to generate a "custom" reportto select on the CA104 screen if they would like the "per 1,000" values or the "total" values to display in their report.
