PLANO, Texas, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kern Health Systems (KHS)—the largest managed Medi-Cal health plan in Kern County, California—recently went live with Jiva™ 6.1, ZeOmega®'s end-to-end population health management (PHM) platform. As part of KHS's criteria, implementation had to take less than a year. This was a major challenge, considering California's complex compliance laws. KHS and ZeOmega met the challenge together, implementing Jiva in less than a year from the date the contract was finalized—a significant accomplishment for all involved.
Out of the box, Jiva 6.1 adheres to the majority of California's healthcare industry regulations and governance standards. With this straightforward implementation, Jiva is an efficient and powerful platform not only for KHS, but for all health plans and providers alike throughout the State of California.
"We are very pleased with the successful implementation of Jiva 6.1," says Deborah Murr, Administrative Director of Health Services for KHS. "ZeOmega was an outstanding collaborator every step of the way, communicating clearly and working closely with our team to ensure a positive outcome. We are confident this partnership can handle any challenge, and that steadfast assurance is exactly what we wanted from a vendor partner and platform. We look forward to expanding our usage of Jiva and our partnership with ZeOmega."
No longer concerned with siloed systems, KHS now has one platform seamlessly managing program governance and design, data aggregation and integration, actionable intelligence, holistic and member-centered care management, and stakeholder engagement. The interoperability-enabled Jiva 6.1 solution allows KHS to streamline care coordination for its Medi-Cal members in Kern County.
"We are honored to be working with KHS," says Sam Rangaswamy, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for ZeOmega. "This partnership is an excellent opportunity to further advance KHS's exceptional care while successfully navigating California's intricate compliance landscape. We look forward to helping KHS with their strategic growth initiatives and nurturing the relationship."
KHS's new platform paves the way for future capabilities through its support for bi-directional exchange of clinical data—particularly electronic medical records (EMRs)—between healthcare providers, community organizations, and other entities in KHS's network. ZeOmega looks forward to building upon the platform in the upcoming year, expanding use with additional initiatives and integrations.
