Healthcare Leaders Back Analytics Software That Overcomes Major Barrier to Value-Based Care

NEW YORK, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COPE Health Solutions, Montefiore Health System, Adventist Health, and Heritage Provider Network Inc. have formed a joint venture to introduce an analytics software platform. Analytics for Risk Contracting (ARC) software enables healthcare providers to determine their actual care costs and understand the net financial effect of specific care improvement efforts, population health management and other quality and cost initiatives.

"Within two weeks of using ARC, we identified several large opportunities for improvement. We prioritized the most pressing ones and have begun the process to revise hospital contracts to generate annual savings going forward," said John Beaman, Chief Business Officer for Adventist Health.

The ARC software suite overcomes the enormous challenge facing many providers in understanding their total cost of care and the expense breakdown for providing particular treatments or caring for specific patient groups. Health systems, physician groups and other healthcare providers often lack necessary operating information because under the fee-for-service system, payments have long been disconnected from costs.

"Not understanding the actual total cost of care, in detail, is a huge obstacle to moving U.S. healthcare to value-based care and risk-based payments," said Yomi Ajao, the COPE Health Solutions senior vice president who led the development of the ARC software tool and will serve as president of the joint venture, Analytics for Risk Contracting, LLC. "The tremendous promise of value-based care won't be realized unless providers can see their way forward to accepting more reimbursements tied to cost and quality goals. ARC solves this fundamental problem."

More firepower
ARC uses proprietary algorithms for financial modeling that enable providers to understand and explore the net financial effect of various combinations of inputs, such as changes in specialty use, inpatient use, and physician incentives. Providers can see how they are performing against their care delivery and financial plans.

"Using its years of population health management experience and ARC, Montefiore's Care Management company found opportunities to reduce single-day admissions, admissions for end stage renal disease, improve in-network referral, and reduce overall cost of specialty care," said Stephen Rosenthal, President, Care Management Company, a subsidiary of Montefiore Health System.

Montefiore has been a pioneer in population health management and value-based purchasing for more than two decades. Through its Care Management Organization, it administers comprehensive care to close to 500,000 Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, and members of commercial health plans.

"ARC software is a breakthrough for advancing value-based care. It gives physicians, health systems and other providers, the ability to transform their health plan contracting from volume to value. We continue to see CMS' movement away from fee-for-service, most recently through the newly announced Direct Contracting Payment Models, and ARC can help medical groups, IPAs, ACOs and others considering these demonstrations," said Richard Merkin, MD, Founder and CEO of Heritage Provider Network, the nation's largest physician-founded, global risk-managed organization.

Going beyond other total cost of care tools, ARC software delivers precise information and detailed insight because of its analytical power and more comprehensive data sources. ARC:

  • Aggregates data from numerous sources across the continuum of care and populations - claims, pharmaceutical, provider financials, and national, regional and network benchmarks.
  • Identifies problems or variations within populations, service lines, clinicians or locations, such as avoidable utilization.
  • Provides root causes and paths for navigating to solutions.

Working with ARC
Montefiore Health System and Adventist Health have been strategic partners with COPE Health Solutions, a population health management consulting firm, in developing and using the cloud-native ARC tool. They have teamed up with Heritage Provider Network to form a subsidiary of COPE Health Solutions to make the tool available as a software as a service platform. Clients also have the option of working with COPE Health Solutions to analyze data, develop insights, understand the financial consequences and plan and execute improvement efforts.
