Using a High-Tech and High-Touch Approach to Deliver Chronic Care Management
BATON ROUGE, LA – eQHealth Solutions, a leader in population health management solutions, was selected by Ascent Care Partners to provide population health management and healthcare analytics in support of their chronic care management initiatives. eQHealth’s technology, eQSuite®, will be used for claims and billing data integration, healthcare analytics to stratify beneficiaries, individualized plan of care development, and the productivity reporting necessary to bill for Medicare’s Chronic Care Management program (CPT codes 99490, 99487 and 99489). Additionally, Ascent Care Partners’ care coaches and nurse practitioners will use the eQSuite® proprietary work flow engine for their daily work queue, patient dashboards, 24/7 care plan access, clinical tracker capability for biometric data, session notes, drug alerts and provider channeling.
Ascent Care Partners assists providers in delivering additional care to their Medicare beneficiaries with chronic conditions to improve health outcomes and maximize revenue, serving as a practical extension of the physician’s team between office visits or acute care episodes. By leveraging eQHealth’s proprietary technology platform and their own dedicated workforce, Ascent Care Partners is able to provide continuous encouragement and informational support to beneficiaries enabling them to take control of their health, better manage their medical conditions and lead lives with greater independence.
“We searched for a technology partner that was grounded in clinical practice and could support our growth and vision for providing effective and efficient in between care,” said Marc Sherman, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner, Ascent Care Partners. “We are excited about our partnership with eQHealth Solutions who was head and shoulders above other vendors we considered in their ability to deliver a comprehensive chronic care management software platform with a logical workflow engine for our care coaches and clinical staff.”
Glen J. Golemi, President and Chief Executive Officer, eQHealth Solutions, said, “We are eager to begin our work with Ascent Care Partners. Their unique business model, providing chronic care management services to physician offices who otherwise are unable to deliver this level of care to their beneficiaries, has great potential to improve medical outcomes for their clients and the quality of life for the beneficiaries who receive care.”
