Population health management leader Arcadia (www.arcadia.io) announced today a partnership with Innovative Management Solutions (IMSNY) www.imsnyhealth.com, a joint venture between Coordinated Behavioral Care (CBC) www.cbcare.org, and Coordinated Behavioral Health Services IPA (CBHS) www.cbhsinc.org. Through this partnership, IMSNY will be able to better understand and improve the quality of care for New Yorkers with serious mental illness, substance use disorders and/or chronic health conditions, children with serious emotional disturbances, and those impacted by social factors such as poverty, inadequate housing and food shortages.
IMSNY selected Arcadia based on their extensive work across the healthcare continuum over the last decade as well as their leading analytics technology. Arcadia will implement an analytics platform that will allow IMSNY and the 80+ community-based health and human service agencies within its network, comprehensive visibility into the needs of their patient population and support measurement and management of care utilization and quality. Additionally, IMSNY will receive risk management tools that allow providers at the point of care to identify, prevent, and close care gaps efficiently. Arcadia’s platform will enable providers to identify social and economic factors impacting patient health and proactively launch interventions to overcome those obstacles.
“Behavioral health, substance use disorders, and social and economic challenges have a profound impact on physical health,” said Arcadia CEO Sean Carroll. “We are proud to enable the important and urgent work of helping behavioral health providers unify their data and networks to better understand and care for individual patients and whole populations.”
Arcadia will securely collect, aggregate, and standardize data from IMSNY’s New York State network of providers. Through the connection with electronic health record (EHR) systems containing information on 150,000 Medicaid beneficiaries, Arcadia’s market-leading population health management platform will offer IMSNY and its network of providers advanced capabilities for risk stratification, predictive analytics, and sharing insight on populations across New York City and the Lower Hudson Valley.
“We are seeing improved outcomes among our patients, but we struggle to adequately analyze, quantify and share results from our larger populations without a unified data warehouse and analytic functions,” said Jorge Petit, MD, president and CEO of CBC. “From the very beginning, Arcadia has been a true partner. We are very excited about identifying relevant and trusted data sources to accurately measure the quality of care for individuals receiving services throughout our IPA network.”
“As we move to value-based contracting, timely access to complete and accurate data becomes increasingly important. Data helps us fill gaps in care and avoid duplications. Both of these lead to improved quality for the patients and enhanced value for the payors,” said Richard Tuten, Esq., CEO of CBHS.
