CHICAGO and BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Integrated Health Partners (IHP), a physician organization engaged in providing care management services and originally founded as a partnership between Battle Creek Health System and the Calhoun County Physicians Organization, Inc., today announced the launch of a technology partnership with Texture Health. This strategic partnership is aimed at delivering proactive, workflow-driven population health care management with the goal of delivering the best possible outcomes at the lowest cost to care. Incorporated in 1995, IHP's vision is to build a regional system of high-quality health care through the cooperative efforts of physicians, providers, employers and payers.
Texture Health's population health care management solution empowers disparate providers across the care continuum to connect, communicate and collaborate in ways that engage the patient, enable delivery redesign, and drive financial performance, all while providing comprehensive, compassionate, whole person care. Texture Health's technology will be utilized by IHP's care managers and health coaches to process data, standardize workflows, and document patient engagement, all in a single platform oriented around a team-based approach and in accordance with IHP's defined best practices and value-based arrangements.
"Since its inception, IHP has been singularly focused on delivering value in the form of high quality, customized, whole patient care for the populations we serve," said Ruth Clark, Executive Director of IHP. "In Texture Health, we have found a partner whose technology we can leverage to enhance, automate, and scale our best practices and workflows, allowing us to positively impact the lives of even more patients."
Texture Health will focus initially on supporting IHP's partnership with a large Medicaid plan, customizing its care management platform to align with IHP's workflows, risk stratification algorithm, and service level agreements to underpin care management efforts for 6,000 Medicaid members. IHP will leverage key Texture Health functionality such as click-to-call automated dialing, custom assessment building, and robust reporting capabilities to set benchmarks and measure their outcomes.
"Integrated Health Partners has consistently demonstrated that efficient, effective population health care management delivers better outcomes at lower costs," said Andrew Bezaitis, Texture Health's Chief Growth Officer. "We are excited and beyond grateful to partner with IHP to help scale the effort to make a difference in the lives of so many patients."
