NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Spreemo Health ("Spreemo") and One Call Care Management ("One Call"), the nation's leading provider of workers' compensation care management services, today announced a new strategic partnership to improve the quality and value of radiology services for patients across the country.
By aligning Spreemo's data-driven quality analytics and clinical research with One Call's expansive network access and operational infrastructure, this partnership brings together the unique strengths of two best-in-breed leaders in diagnostic care. Each company will now be able to focus on its respective areas of expertise to collectively deliver the highest-value radiological solution in the workers' comp marketplace.
Going forward, Spreemo will focus exclusively on the quality analytics portion of its existing business, retaining sole ownership of its clinical initiatives and related data science infrastructure and continuing to operate as an independent company. One Call, in turn, will assume responsibility for the referral management portion of Spreemo's existing operations and infrastructure, expanding the reach of Spreemo's quality metrics to One Call's network and customer base through a long-term licensing agreement.
"This partnership benefits patients, payers, and providers alike," said Spreemo CEO Ron Vianu. "Every injured employee in the country will now have access to the right radiology provider for his or her injury or illness, further cementing our metrics as the accepted currency of quality in radiological care. Our clients will also benefit from One Call's extensive service delivery infrastructure and well-established channel partnerships."
"Our customers have been demanding more choice and more sophisticated product innovation in diagnostics, and that is exactly what this partnership provides," said One Call Chief Product Officer Will Smith. "Both One Call and Spreemo recognize the need to invest in next-generation solutions that will deliver better performance for our customers and better care for our patients. By working together, we will provide our customers and the patients we serve with access to a more advanced diagnostics solution."
"Our mission at Spreemo has always been to focus first on what's best for the patient," said Vianu. "This partnership not only validates our efforts over the last seven years to define, deliver, and standardize quality care, but also accelerates our mission by immediately bringing better value and higher-quality care to more patients than ever before. With Spreemo's newly narrowed focus on quality analytics, we hope to soon bring those benefits to an even broader array of employers, payers, and healthcare markets, starting with the group healthcare space."
