Since 2001, Shortgrass Web Development has been providing web design and
development solutions. And though we are located in Central Montana, our clients can be found across the United States. We do serve a lot of small businesses, but also count large national corporations, governmental entities, and non-profits among our customers.
Starting in 2003, Shortgrass Web has been developing expertise in web-based healthcare applications. The following are some
examples of web-based healthcare applications built, hosted, and managed by Shortgrass:
This web-based case management software was
custom-built for Medicaid Waiver case managers across the State of
Montana. The application is currently used by all Senior and Long Term
Care and Severe Disabling Mental Illness Waiver teams in Montana. In addition, the State of Montana Senior and Long Term Care Division
and the State of Montana Severe Disabling Mental Illness Division use the software to help them manage the program. This
software has been in use for over eight years and continues to grow in
features every day. It utilizes the SAAS model (Software as a Service), which stresses rapid development cycles and continuous improvement after launch.
Peer Case Review Portal
This web-based software tool allows
healthcare agencies to exchange and review case files in a secure environment. The
many reasons for the exchange of case files include: education,
meeting compliance regulations for peer review, and learning best
practices. Peer Case Review is currently in use by the Montana Performance
Improvement Network (MTPIN), who manages the application on behalf of
the 38 critical access hospitals across the State of Montana.
Transition Alert Software
This web-based software was built to
address the national "triple aim in healthcare." The triple aim has three parts:
1. to improve patient outcomes.
2. to improve the patient experience.
3. to decrease healthcare costs.
Our app addresses the unique challenge in the triple aim by improving connections during the times an individual transitions from one care setting to another. Transition Alert Software is an innovative tool that facilitates speedy, efficient communication among the multiple providers that may be serving a healthcare consumer. Transition Alert Software is currently being used in a beta study in Missoula, Montana.
