Capitol Health Network and Sutherland Healthcare Solutions Partner to Deliver Advanced Population Management to Sacramento

CLIFTON, N.J., Aug. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sutherland Healthcare Solutions and Sacramento-based Capitol Health Network (CHN) have teamed up to deliver an advanced population management solution to improve the overall health and wellness of the Sacramento community.

The solution leverages a customized patient registry along with Sutherland's SmartHealthConnect tool. Sutherland developed a patient registry for CHN to improve the overall health of CHN's members. Sutherland's proprietary SmartHealthConnect tool provides real-time information at the point of care, including risk scores, gaps in care, and admit discharge and transfer (ADT). Analytics are then leveraged to improve health outcomes, increase the quality of patient care, and lower costs.

"CHN has been in need of a solution that bends the care delivery curve in the community," said CHN Chief Executive Officer James Ellsworth. "One that supports the primary care provider at the point of care and prepares the clinic for alternative payment and care delivery models. Sutherland and SmartHealthConnect will not only meet this requirement but will deliver results."

"With the redistribution of financial risk from payers to care delivery organizations, Healthcare is rapidly shifting to a population management model with new forms of contracting, payment and care delivery methods," said Sutherland Healthcare Solutions CEO Thomas Laur. "We're excited to have teamed up with Capitol Health Network to provide a solution that not only improves their financial results but can help all types of healthcare accountable care players achieve the triple aim of improved access, better care, and lower costs."
