MissionPoint Health Partners, a collaboration between more than 1,000 physicians and Saint Thomas Health, which was recently named a Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO, has selected Care Team Connect’s care coordination platform to power care navigation for their 40,000 enrolled members.

Launched earlier this year, MissionPoint is a partnership between Saint Thomas Health, physicians, community organizations, insurers, brokers and employers that better enables patients to navigate their healthcare. MissionPoint aims to improve the health of the communities it serves; reduce healthcare costs; improve patient experience; and enrich the lives of caregivers. Payments for physicians participating in MissionPoint are based on “outcomes” — whether the patient becomes and remains healthy.

Care Team Connect’s secure, web-based platform connects hospitals, community providers, physicians, family members and patients so they can work in partnership across the care continuum to improve patient outcomes while significantly reducing the overall cost of care. The technology will serve as the common platform for the creation of patient-specific care plans driven by data interfaced directly from MissionPoint’s existing legacy systems, as well as the system of record for all subsequent patient encounters.

“MissionPoint is providing a singular, coordinated platform to not only provide care to patients but prevent illnesses in the first place,” said Jason Dinger, CEO of MissionPoint Health Partners. “Care Team Connect offers a unique service that will allow us to achieve better health outcomes for our community.”

Per the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) program, MissionPoint assumes responsibility for delivering efficient and effective care to a defined patient population. Care Team Connect’s technology platform automates the creation of patient-specific care plans along with task lists that will enable MissionPoint’s care navigators to quickly and accurately utilize proven care methods and best practices to care for the patients in their network. The end result is high quality care with all of the guesswork and redundancies removed.

“We feel very fortunate to team with a visionary organization like MissionPoint Health Partners, who is focused on providing high-quality and affordable healthcare in a smarter, patient-focused way,” said Ben Albert, CEO and founder of Care Team Connect. “Care Team Connect will enable MissionPoint’s care navigation team to deliver the right care to the right patient at the right time, while helping measure the results.”

MissionPoint Health Partners is a new platform for health care delivery developed to bring doctors, nurses, hospitals and other care providers together to share the responsibility for keeping patients healthy. MissionPoint works to measurably lower the total cost and improve quality and satisfaction of a defined patient population’s care. For more information, please visit or call 615-284-6843.

Care Team Connect’s secure, web-based platform powers care networks, aligning acute care, post-acute care, community providers, and family members to consistently deliver the right care to the right patient at the right time. Care Team Connect enables Accountable Care Organization, preventable hospital readmission, and Patient-Centered Medical Home care coordination programs to identify and manage targeted patient populations by risk, payer, condition and care setting. Care Team Connect unites a cross-continuum care team to focus on a patient-specific care plan outlining precise actions driven by patient data. Client organizations leverage resources effectively and efficiently, gain real time visibility and ensure network partners follow chosen protocols.
