MARLBOROUGH, Mass. – November 12, 2020 – Persivia, a provider of real-time population health management solutions, today announced that McLaren Health Care has now fully deployed Persivia’s single platform solution for care management, cost and utilization analytics and quality management and reporting.
The purpose of the effort was to replace 5 different point applications with one integrated platform. “Persivia is now our population health operating system that works in close conjunction with our system wide Cerner and 20 ambulatory EHRs.” said Gary Wenztloff, CEO of McLaren Physician Partners.
Headquartered in Grand Blanc, Michigan, McLaren Health Care includes 15 hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, and commercial and Medicaid HMOs covering more than 588,000 lives in Michigan and Indiana. McLaren is leveraging Persivia to succeed in a range of alternate payment and quality programs, including: BPCI Advanced, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield Michigan, and McLaren’s Accountable Care Organization (ACO), the McLaren High Performance Network (the 6th best performing ACO in the country with over $34 million in savings in 2019).
The implementation of Persivia’s CareSpace® population health platform began in 2019, to support McLaren’s efforts in five alternative and risk-based payment programs, by first consolidating data from more than 30 clinical and claims data sources.
McLaren had defined a complex set of requirements, including consolidation of data from over 30 different data streams, consolidation of its clinical quality measures (CQM) reporting across all facilities as well as the replacement of 5 different point solutions when being used to manage 200,000 lives in the various risk sharing programs.
The full platform deployment took around 12 months from contract signing to full production deployment with various modules going into production in multiple phases, beginning with consolidation of the CQM reporting in 2019 and ending with the deployment of a HEDIS measure registry. In between, Persivia consolidated McLaren’s multiple care management, analytics and quality reporting systems onto one platform.
“With a huge success in the consolidation of the multiple EHR and claims data feeds and the multiple eCQM programs under our belt, we shifted focus to the care coordination, care management and analytics side, being mindful to still meet our interoperability goals while maintaining superior service to our patient population,” said Mr. Wenztloff “With Persivia’s complete delivery of a single platform solution, our clinicians have less ‘clicks’ to get at a true longitudinal medical record view of a patient right at the point of care.”
“CareSpace’s single platform architecture allows our clients to typically replace five- to six-point solutions while improving performance and usability,” said Mansoor Khan, CEO of Persivia. “CareSpace organizes and integrates data while streamlining analytics, workflows, and program participation, enabling success under multiple concurrent alternative payment models. We are now working on implementing a full virtual care capability for McLaren which will allow them to perform telemedicine and remote patient monitoring from our integrated platform thus simultaneously driving revenue and workflow efficiencies. McLaren has done a great job taking advantage of these opportunities to benefit their patient population and our team is very excited to be working so closely with an industry leading health system.”
