HealthEC, which also serves as PHM provider for Beaumont Health, to provide comprehensive support for ACO’s value-based care initiatives

EDISON, N.J., Dec. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HealthEC, a KLAS-recognized end-to-end provider of Population Health Management (PHM) solutions, announced today that physician-led Beaumont Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is the firm’s newest client, joining the growing list of ACOs that use HealthEC’s PHM solutions for value-based care initiatives.
