ACAP Health's Clinical Care Engineering Becomes Compass Care Engineering

Jan 07, 2013, 13:57 ET from ACAP Health Consulting

DALLAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ACAP Health Consulting has sold its Clinical Care Engineering (CCE) product to Compass Professional Health Services.  The sale was effective January 1, 2013 and results in the formation of Compass Care Engineering, which will be led by David Toomey, former principal of ACAP Health.

The CCE product was initially developed in late 2011 as part of ACAP Health's "accountable care" initiative.  It aims to establish and communicate clinical care and service standards directly to physicians and hospitals, closing the communication gap between employers and health care providers.

"As CCE developed under ACAP Health, it became clear that the initiative would have greater success with advanced technology and consumer engagement capabilities," said Wally Gomaa, president of ACAP Health.  "We found a robust patient engagement model and deep analytics power in Compass to launch CCE forward."

"Our goal with Compass Care Engineering is to equip our health pros with unsurpassed clinical quality information to further enhance the health consumers' value and experience. CCE gives us the ability to engage employers with top-performing providers to impact the employees' health and significantly reduce costs," said Scott Schoenvogel, CEO of Compass Professional Health Services.
