Summit Health implements Wellcentive platform


Summit Health, a health system serving the population of south central Pennsylvania, has implemented Wellcentive's suite of solutions and services for population health management.

Summit Health contracted with Wellcentive to implement a technology infrastructure that would enable its leaders and care providers to manage a wide variety of quality initiatives and risk-based contracts.

"Few things are more important to us strategically right now than preparing to manage clinical and financial risk," said Frank Mozdy, MD, chief medical officer at Summit Health. "Choosing Wellcentive as our partner in this critical effort was a deliberate process that involved almost a year-long evaluation of numerous vendors. Our implementation process has confirmed that Wellcentive is the right partner for aggregating and integrating data from across the continuum and making it available to the clinicians and care managers who work every day with patients."

Wellcentive's specialty is bringing together disparate data and turning it into actionable information. Built from the ground up to help customers improve clinical, financial and human outcomes, Wellcentive's population health management solution is cloud-based, scalable, and customized to meet the needs of any health system or physician organization.

Summit Health implemented Wellcentive as part of its long-term strategic plan for managing risk across the care continuum. With the platform for population health management now live, the health system is prepared to participate in a variety of payer-sponsored quality initiatives.

Wellcentive will enable Summit Health to manage multiple pay-for-performance and risk-based contracts, such as the Highmark Quality Blue Physician Program. The health system is also preparing to participate in patient-centered medical home (PCMH) initiatives, including gaining certification through the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare.
