The Wellcentive products have a number of compelling and valuable features that deliver robust reporting and automated alerts.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Wellcentive, an Atlanta-based provider of innovative Population Health Management and Data Analytics solutions, today announced that it had been selected by Boulder Community Hospital (BCH) Physician Clinics to facilitate better care coordination and improve outcomes as part of its Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative, support its Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) implementation, and prepare for the possibility of future Accountable Care activities.
Wellcentive’s Advance solution was selected over other vendors for this project due to its ability to allow the user to easily create completely custom alerts, reports, and quality metrics, its support for many nationally recognized quality outcomes, extensive and easily activated clinical and administrative data points that include payer and prescription information, the presence of benchmarks for physicians and clinics, and a focus on data quality and data management workflow tools.
“The Wellcentive products have a number of compelling and valuable features that deliver robust reporting and automated alerts,” said Grant W. Lunney, MBA, Senior Operations Manager of Physician Clinics at BCH. “What we liked the most, however, was their proven expertise with NCQA, NQF, CPCI and PCMH programs.”
Wellcentive was retained to assist in managing the needs of BCH’s more than 50 employed outpatient primary providers, their participation in the CPC initiative, and their progress toward PCMH certification.
The CPC initiative is a four-year initiative administered by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. The CMS Innovation Center was created by the Affordable Care Act to test innovative payment and service delivery models that have the potential to reduce program expenditures while preserving or enhancing the quality of care.
BCH’s program is among 73 primary care practices in Colorado that have been selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in a comprehensive initiative to help keep health care costs down. In total, 335 providers from across the state will participate in the Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative.
BCH will purchase licenses to Wellcentive’s Outcomes Manager and Advance Risk Manager solutions. The Outcomes Manager and Advance Risk Manager are critical tools for proactively managing care and controlling costs. With these tools, BCH can identify and stratify patients within selected risk profiles, enabling providers to focus their care management resources on the highest risk patients. This results in a greater ability to affect change in both the quality of care and the costs associated with that care. BCH can truly look forward and employ predictive risk modeling.
Through a growing number of accounts like BCH, Wellcentive has gained market attention by appending, accelerating and pushing past the delivery capabilities of legacy systems. “With an unprecedented combination of uncertainty, pressure and opportunity, these are remarkably challenging times for health care organizations,” said Mason Beard, Senior Vice President of Solutions and Operations and Wellcentive co-founder. “Our solutions empower organizations to evolve and grow through the power of their own data.”
