CINCINNATI, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In a joint announcement, AssureCare and Centerprise stated their strategic partnership provides targeted care management solutions to FQHCs. FQHCs are community-based and patient-centered healthcare centers with a focus on serving underserved populations.
FQHCs play an important role in caring for both urban and rural populations throughout the United States. As of 2015, over 24 million Americans were cared for by providers employed by FQHCs. Many of these patients suffer from one or more chronic illnesses. With ever increasing co-morbidities, care management and disease management solutions are needed more than ever. In addition to their federal reporting requirements, health centers are driven to demonstrate value that is provided to their patients, payers, and providers. This is to ensure continued financial resources that allow them to provide quality care to the underserved population. To date, FQHC's have been searching for software technology to report their outcomes effectively and to provide targeted care management approaches to the most vulnerable patients. AssureCare and Centerprise formed a partnership to address the need for technology-driven coordinated care and real-time outcomes.
This collaborative solution, MedCompass, will allow care coordinators, case managers, providers, and administrators to manage their patients' chronic diseases, reduce patient costs and enhance patient satisfaction. Furthermore, it will provide a foundation for FQHCs to reach and surpass their quality benchmarks while providing a streamlined way of reporting them. The platform integrates easily with existing systems that help FQHC's with their daily practice functions, making it a cost-effective care coordination approach.
"Federally Qualified Health Centers in the United States are a driving force in maintaining positive health outcomes for patients in communities that are underserved," said Ken Page, President and CEO of Centerprise. "Our partnership with AssureCare highlights our strong commitment to help provide the best coordinated care possible for these individuals. We are thrilled to be able to provide this innovative solution for FQHCs and assist them in navigating the world of advanced technology-driven healthcare," says Page.
"Consistent with our mission, AssureCare strives to make care coordination streamlined, efficient and outcomes focused. Our partnership with Centerprise allows us to catalyze and concretize our care coordination solutions to solve healthcare delivery issues for population(s) and in the communities, they live," says Dr. Yousuf J. Ahmad, President & CEO of AssureCare.
