Spatially Health a cloud-based, technology company focused on pioneering new methods in geospatial analytics and location intelligence to better understand and improve social determinants of health (SDOH), has announced an exciting partnership with ACO Health Partners, LLC, a Jacksonville FL based Shared Savings ACO. The partnership will leverage Spatially Health’s Equity EqualizerTM platform, which identifies health equity barriers at the patient level and provides targeted intervention recommendations that enhance patient engagement and improve medical management programs.

Spatially Health’s tech platform will integrate with ACO Health Partners’ current workflow to identify SDoH barriers facing each ACO Health Partners patient. The proprietary geospatial and analytics models in Spatially Health’s Equity EqualizerTM platform holistically analyze the SDoH of individual patients and then recommend targeted interventions to address the SDoH barriers for each patient. Further, Spatially Health’s Equity EqualizerTM platform is dynamic, adjusting with each set of added patient data, so that it evolves with ACO Health Partners throughout the upcoming weeks, months, and years, giving accurate and sustainable recommendations to improve patient health outcomes. Additionally, the platform also ranks patients by vulnerability, so that the most vulnerable population’s needs can be addressed first.

“ACO Health Partners has been a pioneer in maximizing patient engagement as its key to success. Spatially’s analytics allows us to understand some of the underlying social determinant issues impacting our patients that we can now proactively address as part of our engagement. With engagement comes better outcomes and lower costs. In addition, Spatially has allowed us to develop a health equity plan that is actionable” said Marsha Boggess, CEO of ACO Health Partners.

This partnership underscores Spatially Health’s focus on advancing Health Equity through strategic alliances with risk-based organizations focused on improving the quality of health outcomes for vulnerable populations. “We are excited to partner with ACO Health Partners and provide data-driven solutions to target interventions so resources will be effective, efficient, and have a measurable impact,” said Hillit Meidar-Alfi, co-founder, and CEO at Spatially Health. “This partnership demonstrates the power of our platforms in helping progressive risk-bearing organizations to increase health equity and improve performance measures, medical management practice, and health outcomes.”

The Equity EqualizerTM platform has many additional capabilities including measuring cost in relation to health barriers, meeting CMS compliance requirements, and enhanced tools for mitigating risk and improving quality in relation to SDOH health barriers. We plan to work closely with ACO Health Partners to roll out these capabilities over time.
