Warm Health Enters Heart Failure Care Management Partnership with HealthSpring

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Warm Health, a provider of innovative care management communications, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Nashville based HealthSpring. Warm Health will deliver its Heart Failure Care Management Program to HealthSpring’s at-risk Medicare Advantage members by utilizing a suite of automated technology solutions to complement existing HealthSpring member communications approaches.

HealthSpring Heart Failure members will receive personalized calls from Warm Health at a rate that matches their risk level, from one to five times per week.
