Business intelligence, analytics and population health management technologies will be applied to combat and manage HIV-related illness in a global organization
BATON ROUGE, La. – eQHealth Solutions, a leader in population health management for commercial and government entities, today announced that Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), a global nonprofit organization that provides cutting-edge medicine and advocacy to more than 1.3 million people in 43 countries worldwide, has selected the company’s eQSuite® as its technology platform for business intelligence, analytics and population health management. eQHealth Solutions’ technology will be deployed in both California and Florida, building on the momentum established earlier in 2019 with several major client signings. More specifically, the population health management platform will better manage authorizations and members in a wholistic fashion.
AHF is implementing the eQSuite® technology to help it manage the HIV/AIDS populations it serves more effectively. Its advanced business intelligence and analytics capabilities will assist in identifying care gaps among those populations to ensure they are doing all they can/should do to remain as healthy as possible. eQHealth will enable the Foundation to aggregate and use all the data it has accumulated in disparate systems. The Foundation will then use this information to uncover patterns in the spread of HIV/AIDS, helping its employees and partners with prevention efforts while also helping the Foundation improve its own operational efficiencies.
“HIV and AIDS may not be the headline-grabbing issue it once was in the U.S., but it is still a major concern throughout the world, especially among more vulnerable populations, particularly in rural communities and throughout the southern U.S. ,” said Donna Stidham, Chief of Managed Care at AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “Our goal is to contain the spread of HIV/ AIDS by generating new, innovative treatments, prevention and advocacy. Adding a sophisticated population health management and business intelligence tool like the eQSuite® will help us expand our mission exponentially while keeping our costs down. We are excited to begin running the data and making even more of a difference in the lives of those with HIV/AIDS, including those who are not aware they have it yet, and the people who love them.”
AHF currently serves more than 1.3 million people across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America. In the U.S., it operates in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In 2018, the Foundation provided nearly 200,000 free HIV tests in the U.S. (with 2,048 people identified as HIV+), and more than 4.6 million free HIV tests worldwide. It operates 679 global clinics, 55 U.S. pharmacy outlets in 15 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and 20 Out of the Closet Stores in seven states. Additionally, AHF operates 22 Wellness Centers in nine U.S. states as well as seven wellness centers in four countries around the world.
“This is a tremendous organization that has been doing necessary and important work,” said Glen Golemi, President and CEO, at eQHealth Solutions. “But they have come to realize that in order to continue and expand their mission they will need to take advantage of advanced population health management and business intelligence technologies. We are proud that our first international exposure will be in support of such a worthy endeavor. We look forward to helping AIDS Healthcare Foundation make more of a difference in more lives they serve.”
