PLANO, Texas, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ZeOmega® Inc., a market leader in population health management, has announced that a large multi-state Managed Medicaid health plan client has extended its contract for Jiva™ Population Health Management for an additional five years. To date, Jiva from ZeOmega has enabled the health plan to expand its covered lives from 780,000 to 2.4 million. The client will continue leveraging Jiva to quickly add new lines of business in-house and improve care transitions as it increases services to vulnerable populations.
The health plan serves more than 5 million members in 19 states and the District of Columbia through a network of over 20,000 providers across nine Medicare and Medicaid plans and numerous third-party arrangements. The client is extending its Jiva deployment to also include among others Jiva Admission, Discharge, and Transfer solutions to provide case managers with more complete patient information, enabling them to better coordinate care as members transition between clinical settings.
"This commitment for an additional five years is indicative of a successful partnership between ZeOmega and the health plan," said Christopher Mathews MD, chief medical officer at ZeOmega. "We are extremely proud that Jiva has been such an essential component of this valued client's growth and expansion into new areas of opportunity. More importantly, we are pleased to continue exploring new possibilities to bring quality healthcare to those who need it most."
For example, in 2015 when a state Department of Community Health selected the health plan to serve the state's dual eligible populations, ZeOmega worked with the client to meet an extremely tight deadline of less than 90 days to implement the Jiva solutions necessary to manage the program.
Currently, the client utilizes Jiva for its entire care management division supporting Medicaid, Medicare, and dual eligibles across 1,400 concurrent users. By extending its contract, the health plan will have the capacity to add the additional users necessary to accommodate its expanding business.
Jiva™, the 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. For more information, visit www.zeomega.com.
