Innovaccer, the Data Activation Company, Selected by Children's Mercy Kansas City to Advance Pediatric Value-Based Care
SAN FRANCISCO, July 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading pediatric healthcare organization engages Innovaccer to activate their healthcare data and strategically improve pediatric value-based care.
Children's Mercy Integrated Care Solutions (CMICS), one of the most advanced pediatric health networks in the country and a wholly owned subsidiary of Children's Mercy Kansas City, today announced that it has partnered with Innovaccer Inc., a leading healthcare data activation company, to power its pediatric population health management initiatives for Children's Mercy's Pediatric Care Network and Children's Health Network.
Children's Mercy Integrated Care Solutions develops and manages integrated pediatric networks that coordinate the care of pediatric patients enrolled in various health plans. The networks include Children's Mercy's Pediatric Care Network and Children's Health Network. Each network includes Children's Mercy Kansas City and independent community-based pediatric primary care practices. The objective of the networks is to deliver high-value and integrated care that meets the Triple Aim for children in the target population. CMICS manages nearly 200,000 value-based patients, which is approximately 34% of the pediatric population in the Kansas City area and includes over 60 primary care practices.
CMICS will be implementing Innovaccer's Data Activation Platform along with InGraph, the analytics solution, InNote, the point-of-care alerts solution, and InConnect, the patient engagement solution. Innovaccer's Data Activation Platform will be assisting CMICS in integrating disparate healthcare data from various systems being used in the two provider networks to create unique, longitudinal records for patients.
Additionally, Innovaccer will be assisting the provider networks in identifying gaps in care in population health and better equipping providers with the required insights at the point of care to help close gaps effectively and better manage patient health. Leveraging these solutions, CMICS will also be able to simplify patient outreach activities and monitor, identify, and improve quality, cost, and utilization metrics on customizable, drillable dashboards.
"At Children's Mercy Integrated Care Solutions, the objective is to deliver high value care which meets the Triple Aim for all children and includes better care, smarter spending, and healthier children. We believe value-based payment contracts and clinical integration between community and health system providers are necessary to align incentives and create an integrated and coordinated system of care," said Luke Harris, Director of Operations & Population Health Management at Children's Mercy Integrated Care Solutions. "I think we have found a great partner in Innovaccer, who can assist us in building a data-driven culture for continuous and sustained improvement. The expertise and depth they bring to data integration and analytics is outstanding. They are also 100% committed to our success and have demonstrated a level of service and responsiveness that is unparalleled in the industry. We look forward to partnering with Innovaccer to advance pediatric value based care and ultimately achieve better outcomes and healthier children for Kansas City."
"Value based care is happening and pediatric care is also transforming with it. For healthcare organizations as proactive as Children's Mercy Kansas City, it's critical to harness the best available data to enhance care delivery and coordination. We are honored with Children's Mercy's trust in us and believe that with their forward-thinking strategies for data-driven care and analytics, both organizations will benefit from this partnership," said Abhinav Shashank, Co-founder & CEO at Innovaccer.
