Clinical integration technology to advance the quality and efficiency of healthcare in Wisconsin
WALTHAM, Mass. & WAUKESHA, Wisc.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ProHealth Solutions, a new accountable care organization (ACO) formed by ProHealth Care hospital system of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the Waukesha Elmbrook Health Care (WEHC) independent physician association, has selected MedVentive Population Manager and MedVentive Risk Manager to support its continuing clinical integration journey and new reimbursement methods.
In addition to 475 WEHC physicians, ProHealth Solution’s participants include Waukesha Memorial Hospital, Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital, ProHealth Care’s Center for Behavioral Health, ProHealth Home Care and Hospice, AngelsGrace Hospice and ProHealth Care’s home infusion services. Designed to be eligible to participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the newly formed ACO will create a culture of clinical integration that promotes healthcare transformation without jeopardizing the doctor-patient bond necessary to provide compassionate care.
MedVentive is a market leader of end-to-end solutions to support provider organizations in becoming ACOs. The company’s origins as an at-risk provider network and ACO give MedVentive a deep understanding of provider organizations and the healthcare environment. MedVentive is uniquely qualified to provide the clinical integration, population management, and risk management infrastructure necessary to be successful under this new model.
“Through ProHealth Solutions, physicians and hospitals will work more closely together to bring patients in our community even higher quality, better coordinated and more efficient care,” said David Cook, Chief Administrative Officer, ProHealth Solutions. “Underpinning our efforts will be MedVentive’s experience and its comprehensive, proven technology platform, which will provide us with the information necessary to drive continuous clinical quality improvement and promote best practices.”
“We’re looking forward to working with such a progressive organization as ProHealth Solutions,” said Jonathan Niloff Chief Medical Officer and Chairman of the Board MedVentive. “It’s an honor to work with innovative providers who are embracing meaningful change with an emphasis on maintaining the provider-patient bond. MedVentive will help ProHealth Solutions share data transparently, create insights into improvement opportunities, and support a culture that implements clinical best practices.”
