We are gratified to have earned this opportunity to work with a progressive organization like PriMed
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 02, 2013
Wellcentive, an Atlanta-based provider of innovative Population Health Management and Data Analytics solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Connecticut-based PriMed Physicians to integrate its disparate systems and provide the capabilities required for a CMS Advance Payment Accountable Care Organization (ACO).
With 36 locations and 120 providers in Fairfield and New Haven counties, PriMed is a physician-owned and led Integrated Provider Group focused on and invested in the core principals of an ACO -- preventive medicine, wellness, population health management and coordinated care.
Under the terms of the agreement, PriMed purchased Wellcentive’s Advance Solution that includes the company’s Data Analytics, Risk Manager and PQRS tools. Wellcentive was selected on the basis of its capabilities to integrate data from disparate systems, unlock pay-for-performance program potential, initiate planning activities, automate outreach, and support PriMed’s Advanced Payment ACO reporting requirements.
PriMed is an important strategic win for Wellcentive, one of a growing number of forward-thinking physician-led organizations contending with the complexities of becoming an ACO.
“We are gratified to have earned this opportunity to work with a progressive organization like PriMed,” said Mason Beard, Senior Vice President of Solutions and Operations and Wellcentive co-founder. “They are market leaders who want to harness and activate the power of disparate data sources to improve their clinical and financial performance, and that’s what Wellcentive solutions do best.”
