Lumeris Unveils TackleBox, Nation’s First End-to-End Accountable Health Care Solution

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lumeris, a subsidiary of The Essence Group (EGHC) and an expert in using software and services to enable accountable health care, today unveiled TackleBox, the nation’s first complete solution for providers and payers committed to managing both the clinical and financial outcomes of coordinated, collaborative patient care.

Combining a sophisticated, secure cloud-based technology platform and innovative business and clinical services, TackleBox is an end-to-end solution proven to lower the cost and improve the quality of health care. For the first time, a complete solution is available that provides previously unattainable integration across the continuum of care.

“Through Lumeris and our TackleBox solution, health care organizations now have access to comprehensive and proven tools and processes that will make their transition to accountable care easier and more successful,” said Richard Jones, president of Lumeris.

Based on years of experience running accountable delivery systems, Lumeris has identified 22 core competencies essential to delivering accountable care. Through TackleBox, Lumeris delivers those competencies via an integrated framework incorporating clinical and business intelligence, risk management, clinical decision support, claims processing, customer service, medical management, value-based network contracting and comprehensive population health management.

TackleBox includes Lumeris’ market-leading Maestro, an evidence-based decision support ‘engine’ that powers better clinical and business decision-making. It securely delivers actionable clinical and financial intelligence directly to the ‘point of clinical thought.’

Maestro was recently featured at the Health Data Initiative Forum, an event co-hosted by the Institute of Medicine and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, for innovating informed health care decision-making. Whether their accountable care capabilities are early stage or more mature, health care payers and providers now have access to a comprehensive solution with TackleBox and Maestro.

“Lumeris has proven the U.S. can have the best health care system in the world that is also affordable,” said W. Michael Long, chief executive officer of EGHC, the parent company of Lumeris. “The Holy Grail – better clinical outcomes, lower costs, and higher patient and physician satisfaction – is now achievable and available to every health care delivery system through TackleBox.”
