Selecting the right primary entities and building proper relationship is the heart of enterprise application design. And, this is common to both NOSQL and SQL world. Besides this, one important factor, in NOSQL world is to design proper structure of primary entities and queries around them.

1. Makalu Care Alerts to Yala

a) My Care Alerts: Specific Care Alerts that display in the member’s Member Profile screen in Makalu are displayed in Yala for the same member. Care Alerts and risk triggers in Makalu that are used by clinical users to identify potentially at risk members but that are not actionable by a member themselves will not be brought into Yala. [An example would be if a member had a 30 day re-admission for COPD.] If Care Alerts exist for a member in Yala, they will display on the Dashboard as shown in the example below. When a Care Alert is no longer in the member’s Makalu Member Profile, the system will also remove the alert from the member’s Yala record.
