Care Navigator was chosen to support the commitment of OneCare Vermont and our provider network to deliver the highest-quality individualized care.

Care Navigator Inc. and OneCare Vermont, Vermont’s state-wide Accountable Care Organization (ACO), announced today the selection of the Care Navigator™ software platform. Care Navigator™ is the leading shared care management software platform that leverages Cloud, desktop and mobile technologies to provide actionable care coordination.

OneCare Vermont is adopting the software to help care coordinators improve communication and collaboration among community service providers, patients and other stakeholders. It will provide care coordination support among the ACO’s extensive network of participating providers and engage its over 110,000 attributed patients. Care Navigator Inc. is wholly owned by New Jersey-based BluePrint Healthcare IT, which developed the software.

As one of the leading state-wide ACO’s in the country, OneCare Vermont works with Medicare, Vermont Medicaid and the Commercial Exchange Shared Saving Programs and a network of providers including most of Vermont's hospitals, 2 New Hampshire hospitals, hundreds of primary and specialty care physicians and Advance Practice Providers, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), and several rural health clinics. OneCare Vermont was created by The University of Vermont Medical Center and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health.

In order to personalize and automate the experience for all users, Care Navigator™ employs algorithms that combine clinical, quality and claims data from Electronic Health Records and population health analytics software as well as from its own native care management data. OneCare Vermont’s deployment will begin with care coordinators, who engage directly with patients and manage care delivery. Initially, it will focus on high risk patients with medically complex conditions. OneCare Vermont plans to expand its use of Care Navigator™ in phases, eventually to include physicians, additional clinical staff, patients and family members.

Todd Moore, Chief Executive Officer of OneCare Vermont, said “OneCare is responsible for a large population of patients that is likely to grow. We’ve achieved high levels of performance so far but realized that we needed a highly capable software product that could help us to scale our work and coordinate our efforts further as we grow to support a large, multi-stakeholder ACO. After a robust evaluation process, Care Navigator™ was chosen to support the commitment of OneCare Vermont and our provider network to deliver the highest-quality individualized care. The software will complement the technologies that already exist in the state with electronic medical records and their exchange of clinical information. We look forward to leveraging some of Care Navigator’s unique features as we move forward with our deployment. OneCare Vermont continues to focus on quality, keeping people healthy, and developing an integrated system of care statewide.”

Vikas Khosla, President and CEO of Care Navigator Inc. and BluePrint Healthcare IT, said “We are committed to providing the best, purpose-driven care management and collaboration capabilities to support OneCare Vermont’s dedication to its patients and providers. Care coordinators and the work they do is our first priority. They will drive the value that lays the foundation to further improve provider and patient engagement, as well as involvement of family members. Care Navigator™ has already demonstrated and been recognized for its innovative capabilities. We are incredibly excited to have this opportunity to support OneCare’s journey on the cutting edge of healthcare transformation.”
