Apollo Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
Today, LaunchMed, LLC announced the launch of its ACO Application & Readiness Services, LaunchMed’s newest offering designed for ACOs applying for participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
LaunchMed, which provides software and consulting services to health care organizations, is now bringing its knowledge and expertise in health care regulatory requirements and applications to ACO MSSP applicants. LaunchMed consultants quickly gather the required information, develop or review existing documents for compliance, and prepare the final application documents for submission.
Additionally, LaunchMed offers ACO Readiness Services, whereby LaunchMed consultants will work with ACOs to develop customized data plans, policy and procedures, committee structures, and care coordination processes.
“LaunchMed began as a consulting company that specialized in applications and processes, as well as program and policy development for start-up managed care organizations. CMS’s requirements for ACO applications are really no different than their requirements for Medicare applications, except for being much more pared down.” says Debbie Ouellette, LaunchMed’s CEO. “LaunchMed consultants have extensive experience with the development and submission of successful applications. LaunchMed is uniquely positioned to assist organizations at any stage of formation that want to participate as an ACO in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.”
As a compliment to the ACO Application & Readiness Services, LaunchMed also offers the LaunchStar™ACO Solution. This cloud-based solution retrieves data from CMS on behalf of the ACO, and presents a complete financial and quality picture of all services rendered to ACO beneficiaries, by ACO and non-ACO participants. The financial and quality dashboard highlights the most important ACO metrics. Additionally, the management-reporting tool with drill down functionality provides for customized reporting. Physicians access actionable data and patient report cards at the point of care via the physician portal.
