Sutherland Healthcare Solutions, a subsidiary of Sutherland Global Services, has revealed that its SmartHealthConnect, digital health platform, has successfully directed population health and quality improvement initiatives.
The health and quality improvement plans have been directed at Morehouse Choice Accountable Care Organization and Education System, based in Atlanta, and the Choice Healthcare Network IPA.
According to the company, as healthcare consistently changes from a fee-for-service to a value-based system, it is important that payers, providers, population health entities and accountable care organizations (ACO) can receive a complete and actionable picture of their populations, particularly their at-risk members.
Sutherland’s SmartHealthConnect platform easily enables healthcare organizations to gain the required insights to successfully make the shift to a value-based system.
“Our priority from the beginning has been to invest in technologies that enable us to quickly respond and adapt to both predictable and unpredictable healthcare policy changes, especially those impacting our patients’ experience and how our providers are paid,” said Michelle Brown, chief executive officer (CEO) of Morehouse Choice.
“We have to converge information from various electronic medical record systems and other sources, and then make good data simple to use and understand.
“The advanced analytical features of SmartHealthConnect allows us to present data to diverse audiences in a way that makes sense. Partnering with Sutherland has enhanced our ability to foresee, lead, and catalyze the change needed to improve our population’s health.”
David Williams, the president of Choice Healthcare Network, adds: “In order for healthcare to truly deliver on the triple aim of reducing cost, improving quality, and increasing access, healthcare entities must look to digital platforms that leverage advanced analytics.
“Sutherland’s SmartHealthConnect is a unique solution that can deliver the information necessary to move to a value-based care model.”
Graham Hughes, CEO of Sutherland Healthcare Solutions, said: “I am honored that our advanced technologies and services are making a measurable difference at Morehouse Choice ACO by enabling fact-driven decision making for their population health management initiatives.
“Sutherland believes that population health innovation is a long term journey that requires a partnership with strong shared vision, great technology, exceptional clinical and financial leadership, combined with pragmatic, outcome focused service delivery.”
