Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Wellcentive, a provider of innovative population health management and data analytics solutions, has expanded its industry reach by partnering with Visualutions, a nationwide provider of managed healthcare IT and data liquidity services. Visualutions will resell Wellcentive’s Advance™ to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), which are grant-supported, community-based organizations that provide comprehensive primary and preventive care to persons regardless of their ability to pay.
Wellcentive Advance has proven extremely successful in improving the clinical and financial outcomes of some of the country’s most prestigious healthcare organizations, including hospitals, accountable care programs, payers, large provider organizations and employer groups. Improving clinical outcomes is central to the mission of FQHCs, 220 of which are currently served by Visualutions in 46 states.
These FQHCs will now be able to leverage the combination of Wellcentive and Visualutions solutions to improve outcomes in Medicaid pay-for-performance, to optimize clinical outcomes to facilitate Uniform Data System reporting as well as grant reporting and applications, and to profile physicians for internal comparison and comparison to peer organizations.
“Visualutions is a perfect partner for taking Wellcentive into the innovative and expanding FQHC market,” said Terry Boch, Wellcentive senior vice president, sales and marketing. “Visualutions’ customers have long engaged in quality initiatives that have made their systems rival private-sector caregivers, and enhancing their ability to track and demonstrate population outcomes will equip them to thrive in the face of federal mandates.”
Bill Young, Visualutions solutions strategist and principal, agrees. “Visualutions has spent its business history engineering the greatest number of connections with disparate systems to achieve broad data liquidity, and Wellcentive’s Advance is masterful at translating that disparate data into the information that drives performance-based medicine,” said Mr. Young. “Our existing customers will find these new capabilities a welcome addition, and we expect additional FQHCs to find them extremely attractive as well.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Visualutions will private-label Wellcentive’s Advance platform. General availability is scheduled for October 2013.
