The Native Health Connection is designed exclusively for IHS Tribal and Urban sites running the Resource and Patient Management System (RPMS).
The comprehensive platform empowers patients through a newfound ownership of their healthcare data.
Healthcare providers spend less than 1/2 of 1% of their time with a patient. Of concern to providers is the 99.9% of the time the patient is on their own. When used in concert with a physicians recommended care program, the NHC strives to reduce the onset of complications from chronic diseases such as diabetes by introducing technology to help bridge that 99.9% gap.
On Jan 23, 2015 The Native Health Connection became an ONC Certified HIT (Health Information Technology) Product, meeting goals for facilities looking to achieve MU2 requirements for both Ambulatory and Inpatient settings.

The objective of the Actionable Diabetes Analytics module is to improve diabetic outcomes by consolidating thousands of pieces of information into a simple to use dashboard. With a single glance, a provider will be able to quickly analyze the state of their diabetic patients based on standards established by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
In June of 2013, and again in March of 2015, Pieran Health Technologies, using their expertise in collecting data for analytics from the IHS RPMS system, was able to assist with a Tribal Site (in Arizona) and two of its providers in receiving DRP recognition from NCQA for their Diabetes Care Program.
A key component to patient wellness is effective communication. The Portal is both a personal health record and direct connection to their health care providers. It empowers the patient by providing them with the ability to connect and communicate through the use of a mobile app or their home computer.
The In-Home Telehealth component provides a simple in-home device to transmit four measures from the patientʼs home to the care team with minimal interaction. Glucose, pulse oximeter, weight and blood pressure are all seamlessly transmitted. Once transmitted, the data is easily viewed in the patient portal and by the provider in the PMAS.
