ACMG of Florida Selects New Population Health Management Solutions Vendor

Jun 09, 2015, 13:05 ET from HealthEC

PISCATAWAY, N.J., June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthEC®, a leader in population health management solutions, has announced that Accountable Care Medical Group (ACMG) has just chosen to implement their population health management solution.  After evaluating more than 10 vendors, ACMG chose HealthEC®'s suite of modules, which cover every aspect of healthcare management.  The solution will cover 43 different medical facilities and groups, encompassing 7 laboratories, a number of rehabilitation centers, urgent care centers, home health agencies, physician and nursing facilities, medical supply companies, etc., and over 9,000 patients.

The HealthEC® population health management suite will provide ACMG with a broad solution which includes patient care plans, assorted analytics on care intelligence, identification and management of gaps in care (population stratification), quality reporting measures for GPRO, population benchmarking and payment features, disease, at-risk and wellness tracking, and quality scorecards.  The solution will also provide drill-down views on population, sub-populations, geography, date ranges, CPT codes, test, utilization and patient demographics. 

ACMG needed a new solution provider: their current vendor was not able to effectively consume and aggregate the various types of claims data from all the different sources they managed.  They were seeking a solution that would allow them to integrate, from beginning to end, health data from all of their different types of ACO members, ranging from clinical data, pharmacy and lab data, claims data, medical supply data, etc., as well as patient data, including chronic care patients and patients with other specific health risks, in order to optimize results and raise the quality of life for their covered population.  ACMG's main goal was to find a solution that would enable them to ensure that all doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers are able to offer the best care possible, by having information from all sources that is coordinated, timely, and easily accessible.

According to Chris Pertierra, CEO of ACMG: "With our many years of experience in both the Fee-for-Service and Managed Care sectors, ACMG has a broad sense of the mission of the MSSP ACO, and what is needed to accomplish this.  Our main challenge was to find a solution that could address both the front and back ends, turn our CMS claims data into useable, actionable data, and allow the coordination of our in-network referrals.  We needed a platform that could provide the ACO with the ability to effectively track and monitor the patient's wellness and preventive plans and the care transition, and to monitor patients with chronic conditions, all of which is pivotal in allowing us to meet the quality metrics necessary for our annual GPRO.  We were getting numerous emails on a daily basis from other vendors who claimed they could do all this, but none of them offered the combination of capabilities, functionality and features that HealthEC® has to offer the ACO." 

Dr. Sanjay Seth, Executive VP of HealthEC® says: "ACMG is on a mission to coordinate and implement patient-centric, physician-directed care management, with timely care interventions that will truly raise the quality level of healthcare.  We are pleased to be the driving force behind the solution that will enable this ACO to achieve their goals.  By integrating all their different types of data from various providers and vendors to create a true interoperable environment for better coordination of care, ACMG can now achieve coordinated, transparent healthcare management.  In addition, we will provide strategic guidance and consulting services to see them through the process."
