Atlanta, GA. – April 8, 2015 —EvergreenHealth Partners announced today that it has signed an agreement with Wellcentive to empower the region’s first clinically integrated network of 500 employed and affiliated physicians to expand the way they provide coordinated care to more than 400,000 residents.
Wellcentive transforms providers’ operations to improve quality and efficiency of the care delivered by helping manage different at-risk patient populations needing enhanced and coordinated access to care.
Wellcentive will provide primary care and specialty physicians within EvergreenHealth Partners better-managed patient information, giving them access to a wealth of patient data including lab work and test results, while helping manage appointment schedules and patient follow-up visits.
“We know that the need to coordinate care does not end as the patient leaves a provider’s office or our hospital,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte. “The talented providers behind EvergreenHealth Partners, along with their staff, have long been dedicated to providing that continuity, and the addition of Wellcentive’s industry leading solution will be a powerful tool to extend the reach of our care.”
Wellcentive also allows EvergreenHealth Partners to better identify high-risk patients by screening patients based on selected risk profiles, then focusing and customizing individual care management resources. Data analytics are available across several measures, including readmissions and chronic care management, to help the organization in its efforts to provide the highest quality care to its patients.
“The transformation from fee-for-service to value-based payments is happening quickly,” said Tom Zajac, Wellcentive’s CEO. “The aggressive timelines of federal, regional and commercial payer initiatives is driving that change. We are pleased to partner with EvergreenHealth’s progressive leadership and deliver the software and services they need for successful navigation of this transition.”
EvergreenHealth Partners is an independent clinically integrated network of physicians affiliated with EvergreenHealth. It selected Wellcentive after a comprehensive review of potential vendors.
