Full suite of Wellcentive products and services will support participation in current and emerging value-based reimbursement programs
ATLANTA, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ColumbiaDoctors, the multi-specialty clinical practice of New York's Columbia University Medical Center, will deploy Wellcentive's full suite of products and services to support current and future population health management initiatives.
ColumbiaDoctors will extend Wellcentive's platform to its 1,100-plus membership, coupled with an expanded, centralized ColumbiaDoctors' population health management team, to optimize clinical and financial outcomes in shared savings and bundled-payment initiatives.
"We met Wellcentive while researching one product category, and ultimately chose the full solution set for its comprehensive, provider-facing support of population health management," said ColumbiaDoctors' Peter Stetson, MD, MA, and Chief Medical Informatics Officer. "The tools will enhance care coordination and outcomes reporting that will continue to drive value-based medicine."
Wellcentive Senior Vice President Terry Boch said the partnership with ColumbiaDoctors is a strong example of the healthcare industry's transition from fee-for-service to value-based payment models.
"The years of development behind Wellcentive solutions and services continue to generate significant rewards for forward-looking providers," said Boch. "ColumbiaDoctors is now positioned at the forefront of caregivers leveraging technology for the betterment of the entire patient populations they serve."
Participation in pay-for-performance reimbursement programs requires gathering information from disconnected information systems that do not share data. Wellcentive's platform addresses this need by interfacing with multiple vendors' systems, aggregating and translating disparate data into meaningful health information and program-specific reports.
Emerging value-based reimbursement programs further prioritize high-risk patients and emphasize care management and patient outreach to improve population care. ColumbiaDoctors' population health management team will use the following Wellcentive tools to support successful participation in shared-savings and bundled-payment programs: point-of-care tools, care gap analysis, automated patient outreach, outcomes reporting, predictive modeling and risk assessment, care management and coordination, cost and utilization analysis, and automated services that monitor data quality and program management parameters.
Wellcentive's specialty is bringing together disparate data and turning it into actionable information. Built from the ground up to help customers improve clinical, financial and human outcomes, Wellcentive's population health management solution is cloud-based, scalable, and customized to meet the needs of any health system or physician organization. Recognized in 2013 by both KLAS and Chilmark, Wellcentive provides the technology that care teams need in order to measure and report performance, and the education that leadership needs to find the most-profitable path from volume to value. Today, Wellcentive aggregates data over 2,400 interfaces, and the tools that improve outcomes for over 23 million lives. Visit Wellcentive at www.wellcentive.com or call 877-295-0886 to learn more.
