PLANO, Texas, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A large Medicaid health plan in the northeast has won its second state contract to deliver a long-term services and supports (LTSS) program using Jiva™ from ZeOmega®, a market leader in population health management solutions. The plan's first state LTSS program went live April 2016, and its second is scheduled to go live July 2017. The new LTSS program will also use Jiva, an HIE-enabled, modular, and scalable platform for managing population health that will enable seamless stakeholder collaboration as the health plan and its hospital partners manage Medicaid enrollees needing long-term care services.
Along with the rest of the healthcare landscape, institutional and community-based LTSS are shifting from a fee-for-service to a value-based care model, where the objectives of improving quality, reducing per capita costs, and enhancing the patient experience of care reign. With the population of those aged 65 and over expected to double in the United States by 2050, solutions facilitating the effective management of people with long-term care needs are essential.
"The escalating demand for long-term services and supports will place significant financial stress on our health system while challenging our ability to provide quality services to those in need," says Christopher Matthews, Chief Medical Officer at ZeOmega. "Through our greater than five year partnership with the plan, ZeOmega continues to be at the forefront of the push to roll out state-of-the-art population management tools with the potential to solve these problems."
Designed to drive efficiency and reduce costs while optimizing the quality and patient experience of care, Jiva is particularly well-suited to meeting the diverse demands of LTSS. Its HIE-enabled interoperability supports the integration of disparate health management systems and the seamless exchange of the information they contain. Its configurability makes it highly adaptable to different requirements and care-giving roles, allowing holistic, patient-centered health management across various stakeholders and organizations.
Jiva™, the HIE-enabled and powerful population health platform from ZeOmega, delivers high-value, strategic solutions enabling payers and care-delivery organizations to improve individual health and provider performance. With deep domain expertise and a comprehensive understanding of complex population health challenges, ZeOmega serves as a true partner for clients, offering flexible deployment and delivery models that leverage an innovative platform designed to integrate workflow, analytics, content, and communication capabilities. By consistently meeting customer expectations and project benchmarks, ZeOmega has earned a reputation for responsiveness and reliability.
