Working together for better population health
The Affordable Care Act created a new category of organizations (Accountable Care Organizations or ACOs) in an effort to incentivize new models of care delivery for Medicare beneficiaries. The goal of this program was to improve outcomes and lower costs for the delivery of care. Since 2011 over 700 ACOs have been formed and it is estimated that approximately 24 million US citizens are being served by an ACO. In order to achieve the goal of more effective and less costly care ACOs must identify and disseminate best practices while constantly focusing on the unique needs of individual patients.
The VitalHealth Suite supports Actionable Population Health Management for ACOs. Our solution addresses the entire cycle of care for population health management – assessing and promoting wellness, risk stratification of patient cohorts, coordination of primary care providers and specialists and patient engagement. It includes automated delivery of validated and non-validated survey instruments to ensure remote monitoring and the ability to automate the collection of patient reported outcomes (PROs) and routine outcomes monitoring (ROM).
