St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) November 03, 2015
Intralign Health, LLC, a specialty healthcare services provider, and Amerinet, a leading national healthcare solutions organization, today announced a three-year agreement that will help Amerinet members better control episodes of care – with a focus on orthopedics.
Intralign’s portfolio of solutions focuses on helping hospitals take control of the episode of care through a unique combination of clinical and operational tools. Amerinet members will be able to leverage Intralign’s Bundle Payment Program, OR Optimization Program, Rep-less OR Program and Total Joint Arthroplasty (TJA) Optimization Program to help them prepare for value-based payment, healthcare reform and the anticipated CCJR that CMS will begin in January, 2016. Under the terms of the agreement, Amerinet’s acute care membership base, which includes more than 3,500 facilities across the U.S., will have access to Intralign’s solutions at a discounted price.
“We are excited to work with Intralign, whose tools and resources are closely aligned with the Amerinet Clinical Advantage program, which focuses on implant costs, resource utilization and efficiency enhancement,“ said Lori Pilla, Amerinet vice president of Custom Contracting and Clinical Advantage. “Hospitals are faced with shrinking reimbursements and service line contribution margins in this era of healthcare reform. Therefore, finding innovative ways to help our members reduce costs on physician preference items (PPIs) while maintaining high standards of quality care takes on even greater importance.”
Intralign partners with nearly 200 hospitals across the country to provide comprehensive solutions to challenges faced with bundled payment and other healthcare reform initiatives. The organization provides clinical support and tracks OR efficiency – and its analytical, supply chain, and process transformation tools help hospitals engineer and manage the optimal episode of care.
Rick Ferreira, chief executive officer and president at Intralign, stated, “Amerinet has a strong focus on truly addressing reform challenges through comprehensive solutions. Intralign was founded to provide just that. This will become a very strong partnership."
As a leading national healthcare solutions organization, Amerinet collaborates with acute and non-acute care providers to create and deliver unique supply chain solutions through performance improvement resources, guidance and ongoing support. With better product standardization and utilization, new financial tools beyond contracting and alliances that help lower costs, raise revenue and champion quality, Amerinet enriches healthcare delivery for its members and the communities they serve.
