Bluestone PRM (Physician Relationship Management)
The Healthcare market is in flux with the introduction of the Affordable Care Act and Accountable Care Organizations (ACO). The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of care while lowering costs, shifting the payment structure from fee-for-service to pay-for-performance and risk-sharing models.
Most healthcare organizations are focusing on clinical improvement and cost reduction efforts. Bluestone’s focus is on the business of healthcare. Our passion is helping health systems, hospitals, surgical centers, and other providers to improve their business operations by developing and executing their strategic plan.
Our mission is to bring traditional business functions of sales, marketing, finance, and strategic planning to providers and payers to help them improve business operations and compete better in the market. We help you to drive revenue and top-line growth. Providers can then re-invest their profits to fund and improve their clinical efforts and deliver on their mission.

Security & PRM
Security is not just a feature, but a core tenet of PRM. We don’t handle patient data, only referral data; however we still treat all data as highly sensitive. Bluestone’s PRM is built on Salesforce.com. Salesforce.com is an SAS 70 Type II certified HIPAA capable, CRM system. Bluestone has furthered this by implementing strong access controls and field level security functions within PRM.
