September 29, 2020 – Baltimore, Maryland & Columbia, Maryland. ArmadaHealth, a leading provider of physician recommendation intelligence and Healthcare Strategies, an industry leader in managing employer self-funded healthcare risk, are pleased to announce their new partnership, combining ArmadaHealth’s AI-enabled patient/physician matching solution, QualityCare Navigator, with Healthcare Strategies’ risk management solutions featuring their HealthReach Population Risk Management program. This new partnership will provide self-funded employers with a combination of guaranteed highly qualified and perfectly matched physicians along with ‘one on one’ RN Care Managers to support their members and reduce overall healthcare costs.
“Our HealthReach Population Risk Management solution currently shows an impact after 12 months and saves, on average, $3,486/per HealthReach participant along with improved compliance with chronic conditions across the entire population. With the addition of the QualityCare Navigator (QCN) platform, we anticipate additional member compliance and savings for each client,” said David Lauritzen, COO and Senior Consultant, Healthcare Strategies. “HealthReach is a proactive clinical-based solution that identifies emerging risk and members that are likely to develop a condition or have a healthcare event in the near future. Steering members to high-quality physicians at any point during the journey, can make a game-changing difference and is a fundamental cost-mitigation component of the service. The QCN solution enables the RN Care Managers to feel confident they are navigating members to the best-matched, high-performing doctor(s) for their needs.”
“We are excited to be working with one of the early leaders in healthcare cost containment and already have experienced great synergy between our solutions based on marketplace demand,” said Susan Torroella, CEO, ArmadaHealth. “Healthcare Strategies has decades of experience in demonstrating savings with their clients’ healthcare dollars. Our partnership enables the contributing savings from our solutions to be realized, mitigating the Total Cost of Care.”
ArmadaHealth’s QCN enables member-facing support teams to leverage a Navigation-as-a-Service™ model, amplifying their value-based care initiatives. QCN easily plugs into existing platforms and processes so groups can benefit from optimal care relatively quickly, while member-facing teams spend more time helping members. QCN is powered by ArmadaHealth’s enhanced intelligence data science platform, S.I.E.N.A.®, which fuses human clinical expertise with AI and Machine Learning technology resulting in evidence-based, unbiased patient/physician-matching outcomes.
